Blu-Ray Flips For Universal

When HD-DVDs first came out, Universal was the biggest proponent of the standard and used ‘flipper disc’ technology on all new releases – one side would have the HD-DVD version, the other side the regular DVD version.

Today, Universal Studios Home Entertainment have announced they’re using essentially the same trick but for Blu-ray (one side DVD/one side Blu-ray) and will launch the discs starting January 19th with the ‘Bourne’ trilogy packaged as individual releases.

Each side of Universal’s flipper discs includes the entire movie as well as all available bonus features, with the Blu-ray side featuring BD exclusives such as U-Control and BD-Live.
