Hot on the heels of Fox’s announcement that the “Die Hard” 4 will be the greatest home video release of all time, they’ve dropped another DVD bomb.

High-Def Digest says that the studio has announced plans to release the sci-fi thriller “Sunshine” as a Profile 1.1 Blu-ray title, meaning that the flick will have picture-in-picture commentary and surround-sound mixing features.

You’ll need a compliant player, so add that to your Christmas wishlist. Sony is also planning a firmware update for PS3 devices.

Other PIP-enabled DVDs should be announced soon. “Sunshine” is expected to hit DVD sometime in the beginning of 2008.
