Lionsgate titles include Crash, Saw and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The Lionsgate titles will retail for $30 to $40 each. Sony doesn’t include suggested retail prices with its releases, but catalog titles from the studio are expected to retail for about $25, while new releases will go for about $30.

Sony’s Blu-Ray film partners 20th Century Fox and Disney  were silent.

No news on how this impacts the delayed-PS3. I tend to agree with those who think the delay won’t hurt Sony. I still think that Sony will win the next-generation war because, well, it has to.
