Paramount Home Entertainment confirmed our suspicions by releasing the final cover art for Transformers on Blu-ray Disc.
Instead of slicker artwork to support Michael Bay’s long-awaited arrival of Transformers on Blu-ray, Paramount is reusing the bland Optimus Prime mugshot that also appeared on the HD DVD version.
The cover may be weak, but this disc is still guaranteed to rock your home theater. As we previously reported, Transformers on Blu-ray will include 5.1 DolbyTrueHD and 5.1 PCM uncompressed audio options to compliment a 1080p transfer. If you recall, the HD DVD was stricken with effective yet lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.
For supplements, BD-Live content will be included which may or may not differ from the online content found on the HD DVD. The full list is as follows, all presented in HD.
