In what may be the biggest high-def disc sale yet, Amazon is offering up to 57% off select Blu-ray and HD DVD discs.

Both promos were launched this weekend by the web merchant, and includes hundreds of popular titles on both high-def disc formats.

Among the 229 Blu-ray discs included are such A-list titles as 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind,' 'Spider-Man - The High Definition Trilogy,' 'Superbad' and 'Casino Royale' (view complete list of Blu-ray titles).

The list of 84 HD DVD titles includes such fan favorites as 'Transformers,' 'Stardust' and 'Serenity' (view complete list of HD DVD titles).

At press time there was no word on how long either deal would be offered by Amazon, though both are being billed as limited time offers. For a full list of eligible titles and more information, click the links to Amazon below.

As always, you'll find up-to-the-minute information on these and other sales spotted in-store and online in the Blu-ray bargains and HD DVD bargains areas of our forums.
