    over at AICN, i saw that you can get Space Ace (that old Don Bluth animated arcade game that was originally on laserdisc) on Blu-Ray and it is actually playable with your remote.

    is it really worth it? i think it would be great to see that game in hi-def, but in a format that isn't like the xbox or playstation?

    just a thought

    Yeah, I wonder that to, because I do believe that "Dragon's Lair" game was also released on Blu-Ray.

    More importantly, is it remastered from the original film print, or is it just an upscaled laserdisk transfer?

    Because you can get the DVD version for two bucks.

    New transfers from the original print with digital cleaning apparently. I hear that the standalone BR version is cropped to 16x9 whether you like it or not, but the HD PC one has the option of OAR.

    Looks like you have the option of 16x9 or OAR...

    Sounds like it turned out pretty good.

    That would definitely be interesting.
