Resident Evil has the lovely distinction of being one of the few video game franchises that hasn’t been completely tarnished in its transition to the big screen. Resident Evil: Extinction will earn yet another distinction, however, when it releases on Blu-ray Disc in just a few short days: it will be among the first Blu-ray Discs to feature Blu-ray Profile 1.1, which enables picture-in-picture features a la HD-DVDs. This is an important leap for Blu-ray Disc in its commercial battle with HD-DVD, and to have a video game-based movie help usher in this technology is, in a weird way, an honor. But enough sentimentality. You want free stuff. And that’s why we’re here with this free sweepstakes: to give one lucky winner a free copy of Resident Evil: Extinction on Blu-ray.
