Disney Blu-Ray 3D Titles To Be Sony Exclusives

It's another blow to consumers as Disney and Sony have just brokered a deal to bring Alice in Wonderland and Bolt to Blu-ray 3D, but make them only available to customers who buy a Bravia 3D TV.

It's just the latest in a long run of TV manufacturers pairing themselves with movie studios to get exclusive Blu-ray 3D rights to specific titles. Avatar will only be available to Panasonic 3D TV buyers while Dreamworks movies are coming bundled with Samsung hardware. Now, Disney and Sony have created a similar exclusivity arrangement.

It's a way for the manufacturers to get people to focus on their sets. It also helps out the movie studios because they don't have to foot the large bill to create the sophisticated Blu-ray 3D discs for a customer base that is still very small.

The only Blu-ray 3D movie you can go out and buy from Best Buy or any other retailer is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball. Every single other one of the movies that has been encoded in Blu-ray 3D has been made only available as part of a hardware bundle or promotion.

By the end of the year, Disney's 2009 remake of A Christmas Carol, as well as Sony's Open Season and Resident Evil: Afterlife are expected to be the only other Blu-ray 3D titles that will be released to retail.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
