Van Morrison’s Moondance gets a 4 CD 1 Blu Ray reissue today. This deluxe edition has the original album and then three discs of previously unreleased music from the sessions, and the Blu-Ray Audio disc Master Audio 5.1 surround sound audio of original album.
The Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson comedy The Internship is out on DVD and Blu Ray today.
Batman: Arkham Origins is out on FRIDAY for PS3 and 360. This is the newest game in the Arkham series that includes Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. The first two games were awesome, hopefully this one continues the Tradition.
Also, one for the family, Lego Marvel, following in the lines of Lego Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, the Marvel universe is getting the Lego treatment. Kids will love this one.
Tech Toy of the week, there’s another Apple event today, this is the iPad event. Here’s what we can expect. The iPad 5 is expected to keep the same 9.7 inch screen, but the case around that screen will get smaller and thinner. It’ll also get the A7x processor which is what is in the iPhone 5s. You can also expect a better camera.
Bigger news is the iPad mini 2, with the hope being the smaller tablet will get the really fancy retina display and it’s glorious 2048 x 1536 resolution. There’s no guarantee of this, but since the mini launched it’s been the number one requested feature. The mini will likely get a faster processor too, but it’s not clear whether it’ll get Apple’s top of the line chip, or the A6x SOC which powers the iPad 4.
The mini is expected to run $330 for a 16 GB, $430 for the 32 GB, and $530 for the 64 GB, version.
