Avatar Coming to 3D Blu-Ray This November UPDATED: Or Not!

If you weren't content with just seeing Avatar in 3D in theaters, don't worry. According to James Cameron, we'll be seeing a 3D Blu-Ray version of the movie before the end of this year:

We'll do the Blu-ray and the standard def DVD April 22nd, that's our plan as of right now, and that'll be pretty much bare bones. And then we'll do a value-added DVD and a 3-D Blu-ray in I think November sometime.


Oh, and I hear that Jason Chen might even do one of his infamous movie liveblogs if there's a director's commentary version. [WSJ via Engadget]


Update: Sad news, folks; Fox dropped us a line to say that "3D is in the conceptual stage and Avatar will not be out on 3D Blu-ray in November."

So, yeah, I'm totally confused. There's a Panasonic LCD (crazy expensive) and a Sony A/V receiver with HDMI 1.4 capabilities. Is there even a BluRay 1.4 capable player out there? I THINK the PS3 MAY have a partial 3D implementation, but not a full one (bandwidth limitation).

So yeah, 3D BluRay's already announced before there is an established and accepted platform to play them. This sounds AWFULLY familiar...
