Less than a week away from the launch of the first HD-DVD players and
discs, Universal has at last officially announced its first next-gen DVD title
offerings. The news comes only a day after the trade press began reporting
that details on the studio's first HD-DVD titles had begun to leak

The studio will release the 'Firefly' big-screen spin-off 'Serenity

' and an unrated 'Doom
' on April 25.
Each disc will retail for a suggested list price of $34.99.
