Sony pushes back Blu-ray disc releases

According to an article in Video Business via HDBlog.net, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has delayed the launch of its first Blu-ray movie titles until June 20. The studio's first batch of eight films, including titles such as House of Flying Daggers, The Fifth Element, and XXX, was originally supposed to hit stores on May 23. Since the first batch of Blu-ray hardware won't be available until June anyway, the delay of the discs makes perfect sense.
