PS3 3D Update Has Audio Output Limitations

CDR Info writes: "There are some limitations on Blu-ray 3D disc playback. The 3D display of some elements such as menus and subtitles may be different on the PS3 system than on other 3D playback devices. Depending on the content, some BD-J (Blu-ray Disc Java) features such as BONUSVIEW and BD-Live may not play in 3D or may not function properly on the PS3 system. In addition, when Dolby TrueHD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in Dolby Digital during playback of Blu-ray 3D content. Last but not least, when DTS-HD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in DTS during playback of Blu-ray 3D content."

The story is too old to be commented.

Hmmm looks like they had to take some band width down, in order to incorporate the 3d for the movies....

Don't like the down grade...Still good, i mean there is no 2006 Blu-ray that's even capable of doing what the PS3 is doing for movies/games...

It is still the best value for money Blu ray player around but it is a little disappointing to hear this news combined with the other Blu Ray 3D problem that has emerged.

For some this is going to be a serious issue.

Cyrus3652641d ago

Definitely best value around, but yeah disappointing...I wonder if it's rushed and tech can be improved, or is the cell maxed out on all the things it's doing, hence some of the features cut.

This may just be software issues, or bandwith. Too early to tell. There are some bugs reported, and

"Depending on the content, some BD-J (Blu-ray Disc Java) features such as BONUSVIEW and BD-Live may not play in 3D or may not function properly on the PS3 system"

totally sounds like one.

HD audio could be a bandwith problem.

Cyrus3652641d ago

I think disabling BD-J (Java),and HD is definite band-width issues, especially the audio portions...

Still its a good deal. Having this missing is not great, but you still get a top notch player and a game system.
