Nevermind, it might just be ROTC or SLIJ. :/

So where are the BluRays? These WERE recorded in HD after all.

I would bet that's the CD+DVD edition of "The Cosmos Rocks" - so, it means audio CD and DVD with Super Live In Japan Highlights.

Interesting if they were to do it that way, because the original Japanese 2-disc release had the SLIJ Highlights on CD form rather than DVD!

Spot on. I don't need that then, since I own the complete gig DVD. Great one, BTW. :)

I think it's waste if they don't release Hyde Park 2005 or Buenos Aires 2008 - great concerts, great audiences, historical aspects (bomb attacks in London 2005, return to the South America after more than a quarter century).

Why no Blu Ray? Surely its a 'standard' format these days?
And as recorded in HD then surely quicker and cheaper to convert to the BD format than SD?

Then again QP have never been very smart since day one when it comes to DVD/BD authoring!
