If you've seen some of those new HD DVD players in advertisements lately, it's not likely that we'll see Wing Commander on that format any time soon. 20th Century Fox is developing movies for Sony's rival Blu-ray players due out later this year. Fox currently has no plans to support the Microsoft/Toshiba's format. Studio support should shift around as actual retail performance factors in down the line.
