Funny thing was, after backing HD-DVD exclusively its entire existence, Universal was actually the first to leap into an announcement it was going Blu, very quickly after Toshiba's press conference. Paramount was the last to announce, and did so very quietly with a statement to only one industry paper. No doubt it was less of a big deal to Paramount, since they'd been releasing both formats until somewhat recently. But the conversion to Blu will be a major undertaking for Uni since none of their library is in the format.
