The HD-DVD group promoted the format with Speilberg titles "E.T, Jurassic Park, and JAWS." But maybe they should have had a chat with Speilberg first. Known for his hesitation in going with new and uncertain formats, Speilberg has NOT given the go-ahead on these title. Universal has since issued an apology:

"The inclusion in the January 29 update of our 'Coming Soon List' of three Steven Spielberg classics was an error on our part. The HD DVD Promotion Group expresses sincere apologies to Steven Spielberg, Universal Studios Home Entertainment and HD DVD fans for this mistake. We will endeavor to prevent any similar mistake and to provide accurate information."

Like George Lucas who has not made a decision on which format the Star Wars trilogy will end up on, we may have to wait for a decisive winner before we see these titles in an HD format.
