Blu-ray owners waiting for more Java features and highly interactive releases like the recently announced Matrix compilation on HD DVD could be due for a hardware upgrade this winter.
this is actual technology news, not more freaking movie releases.
so my PS3...which i stupidly just purchased will not be able to play newer titles soon??
Tell me it can me updated via a Software update....
Of course you can,it's just for the "extra" features that you can't use ,you don't care as long as you can watch the movie
No there will be an update for the ps3. The reason current blu-ray players won't be able to do it is a software and lack of available RAM - something the ps3 has. Sony wouldn't let their poster child slip.
thanks deebrown :)
and as for Fx35 "it's just for the extra features that you cant use"
I payed for a player- i dont care if its just the features, im sure you would agree that you would want everything working for the money regardless of whether they are any good.
These features should have been standard from release like HD DVD.
I cannot believe the format way is this close. Solely due to the PS3. If the PS3 were not a factor the war would already be over.Set top sales favor HD-DVD by a factor of six to one. HD-DVD players cn be found for around $300, and offer superior picture and extras. I say again, the smartest think Sony did was to release the PS3 with only one or two quality games. That way people buy blu-ray movies to pass the time.
