In October, an Update will appear for the PS3, which allows to play 3D Blu-Rays on the Console. But only with limitations.
So, what's the difference between a limitation because of technical issues, and one based on bureaucratic specs? I don't get it.
Makes absolutely no sense to me either.
As long as the 3d movies is 1080p I don't see a problem.
@ bringitson. so a limitation, however minor, should not be reported to the public because idiotic fanboys like you thing it is just sony bashing. grow a brain
spec are defined by the leading 3d bluray player which = PS3 so discs will literally be designed around the ps3.
Hopefully someone posts an alt link I can understand. I dont quite get what this means. Unless someone can explain it?
Agreed, I have no idea what this lame translation is trying to tell me.
There won't be java based 3D menus on PS3. Therefore HDMV (aka BDMV) has to be used. BDs support 2 different interface layers: JAVA & HDMV
Strange, PS3 lacks power? Maybe they implement it in the future..
I don't think it has anything to do with power, I think it's because the bd-j specification doesn't include any of the Java 3D APIs as far as I can recall. That will probably come in a future spec update. But this web page is nearly gibberish so I'm only guessing at what they are trying to say.
NOWHERE in this poorly translated information does it say that there WONT be 3d java menus available while playing 3d blu-rays on ps3 what this poor translation does say is that hdmv menus are required for 3d playback on ps3, that could mean that at the very least they have to be in there, nothing to my knowledge says that you cant have both a bd-j menu and a hdmv menu on the same disc
I read it in german, so I haven't mentioned anything from the translated version. I thought I'd let you know what the original article said but if it isn't appreciated just keep reading the rubbish translation :)
Seriously who gives a dam about 3D. Why don't Sony and many other company's spend more time in trying to bring 4k HDTV's to the market. I've notice that 4k resolution has a natural 3D or 'in your face' look to it, the objects on a 4k TV's look like they're right in front of you whereas 3D has a more numb effect compared to 4K. I'd prefer super high res images over 3D any day.
So, you don't care about 3D but you care about 4k HDTVs, and you want Sony and other companies to listen to you and bring them to the market. But if other people want 3D and don't care about 4k HDTVs, then they don't matter?
Implementing 4k on tvs right now would be pointless... new bluray discs for the megasized files... plus new tvs... (with costs around 10.000) plus new players... not so smart... 3d however requires less expense... common company thinking... my guess is 4k will be skipped, and we will go right thru something like 8k that is basically like looking through a window...
8K 3D with head tracking would be like looking through a window... no matter how much you increase the resolution it will always seem flat (like a painting) unless you have 3D support and head tracking to move the image around as you move.
Why don't they focus on 60fps for films instead? Seriously, it pisses me off. For all of the video freaks going on and on about higher and higher resolutions, resolutions that you can't even see unless you have a massive television, there is NO talk about upping the framerate. Why is that? Every time I see a slow panning shot it looks AWFUL because of the crappy 24fps films are still recorded at. Crappy 24fps would still look crappy at 8k resolution. A framerate upgrade would require far less upgrading of equipment. Existing blu-ray players may be able to handle it, current TVs can certainly handle it, and if a blu-ray disk can store 2 images (1 for each eye) for 3D, it will have no problem storing the extra data for intermediate frames (which is easily compressed).
because 60 fps looks shitty in a movie format it looks like some guy recorded it with a camera in his back yard record it at 24 frames and it looks much better its not the same as playing a game
thor You understand what your talking about.
I think Thor is talking about the 2:3 pull down that happens with movies shown at 30 fps. I don't understand why they stick with the 24fps for filming movies either. It makes the movie look unsmooth (judder) unecessary. @nickjkl Explain to me why a movie filmed at 24 fps would be better than 30fps?
past 24fps, film starts to look...un-natural. Many people in the world would not be able to even tell what was happening on screen. In the old days of film you'll notice that the shots are even held way longer because humans weren't able to take in what was happening if they used quick cuts. Obviously today things are different where our younger generation grew up on tv and are able to recognize the images on a screen much much faster. something like 30fps would probably be doable today for atleast the younger people. be even some video games slow down frame rates on cutscenes where a lot is going on. If films were at 60fps...most would pretty much just interpret any action on screen as a blurry mess. There are tv's out there (notably the new 3d tvs) that can sort of force any video/tv signal into higher framerates (like 120). I don't know how it works exactly but it like averages frames together to create intermediate frames. It actually looks great for animated movies but real life images start to look like a video game or that they were computer generated. There is a reason that films are at 24fps though...it's not technology holding it back.
"past 24fps, film starts to look...un-natural." Do you have any source for that? That doesn't make any sense to me, because real life movement is infinte frames. The higher the frame rate, the smoother the motion. Why would anyone have issues viewing something smoother. If anything a slower frame rate would make it look choppier and harder to view and interpet. I'm not questioning you, just trying to understand.
I never knew why movies were recorded at 24p but a quick search showed me this. http://www.youtube.com/watc... interesting video but you will need to download it and play it on your PC to get the full 60fps...
Oled is the tv of the future and it available now. That what I though you too broke. Talk is cheap.
Both these pictures depict my reactions after reading this article
anyone, feel free to explain what the hell this means and what the hell hdmv menus are versus that other thing theyre talking about
Is that a limitation? o.O What fail bot article.
anyone hear know any 3d projectors that work with ps3 at the moment i bought a hd projector about a month ago and its awesome to play games on it
Can jailbreak fix this?
Would you F**king stop bringing up the God dam PS3 Jailbreak. You and others of the PS3JBDF need to find a better way at trolling because bringing up the PS3 Jailbreak is F**king stupid. You and others have brought it up in every single article relating the PS3. GTFO
Does any of you jailbreak the ps3 yet? Does it run well? Worth it without online? Please tell me how it like.
PS3 really is an impressive well built hardware, when you think about its capabilities its quite astonishing.
3d blu ray players arent that expensive. price will drop next year when film makers acually release some 3d blu rays. ps3 was never meant to do it, so whatever
cause Im not utilizing it!
My word, it's like they took a paragraph and juiced it.
Are the standalone 3D BD player all HDMI 1.4?
are scrapping the bottom of the barrel looking for anything to bash the PS3.
Given the the price of the 3d blu ray players and when you consider when the ps3 came out, the fact that the ps3 can play 3d blu ray even though it is almost a 4 year old hardware is a true testament to Sony for producing a truely a future proof hardware,1st stereoscopic 3d,2nd move and now 3D blu ray, it's been a console that continue to amaze on what its capable, like the guy above this site is just desperate to find a irrelevant so called "limitation"
all is I can say is I LMAO at the author and the approver... EPIC fail of the week around here..... I mean EPIC fail
