This week The Lion King is the king of the jungle, at least by the amount of Blu-ray Disc editions that are available. Don’t be confused when you’re faced with deciding between a Two-Disc Diamond Edition, Four-Disc Diamond Edition, Eight-Disc Combo, and Two-Disc Diamond Edition in DVD packaging (DVD, what the hay?). Finally, yes finally, Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction is available domestically on Blu-ray Disc after several imports teased us over the last couple of years. In the same genre (and by the same Director), Jackie Brown starring Pam Grier and Samuel L. Jackson is now available on Blu-ray Disc. And, we gotta mention a late 90’s theatrical release called Space Jam starring none other than Bugs Bunny along with NBA great Michael Jordan is now available on hi-def Blu-ray.
From Software’s Dark Souls is now available for PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles from publisher Namco Bandai Games. The title is available as both a Standard edition and Collector’s Edition which includes a limited edition art book, mini-strategy guidebook, behind-the-scenes video footage, and a digital copy of the soundtrack. Game features include network play, flexible character development & role play, and a game environment seamlessly linking dungeon tunnels. Dark Souls is called the “spiritual successor” of the 2009 PS3-exclusive Demon’s Souls, meaning the game is not a direct sequel but designed in the same spirit. You can check out some beautiful production artwork on Sony’s Blog, or get online pricing at Amazon and Best Buy.
