CONFUSION SURROUNDS RELEASE DATE OF DTS TITLE FROM QUEEN 'THE GAME'

Report: 26 April 03

High Fidelity Review has been contacted by a number of readers whose pre-orders for ‘The Game’ have not yet shipped and they have assumed that the release date was delayed. However, this is not the case, according to DTS ‘The Game’ was released according to schedule on April 8th. We can confirm this, the title has been spotted in stores such as Best Buy and is available for purchase on-line via DTS’ own web site.

However, major retailers such as Amazon.com and DVD Empire still show the release date as being April 29th and will not be shipping discs until at least that date. When we pointed this out to DTS, their representative Kristin Thomson commented: “That is odd – it’s been out in retail for almost a month”. If you have pre-ordered a copy, then our advice would be to write to the retailer responsible and enquire about the delay, especially if the disc doesn’t show up next week.

‘The Game’ follows in the footsteps of ‘A Night at the Opera’, Queen’s first DVD-Audio release made available in 2002. An exclusive DVD-Audio release, the title features surround re-mixes created by Brian May, Roger Taylor and Justin Shirley-Smith. Also on the disc are synchronised lyrics and a photo gallery while audio options include high-resolution MLP DVD-Audio tracks and for DVD-Video players, lossy DTS 96/24 and two-channel PCM.

Track List:
1. Play The Game
2. Dragon Attack
3. Another One Bites the Dust
4. Need Your Loving Tonight
5. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
6. Rock It (Prime Jive)
7. Don’t Try Suicide
