"Buena Vista will be bringing 3rd Lost Season to Blu-ray, complete with, quoting, "interactive BD-Java feature that reveals truths from each of the show's critically acclaimed seasons." That sounds fancy to us.
Your screwed...However if you have a PS3 then all is not lost lol no pun intended.
we don't know for sure that the PS3 will be able to be updated into 1.1
This is just a software update away from working. The PS3 is the ideal BD player in that it isn't just a stand alone. If for some reason the encryption needs to be changed on new discs due to piracy, the ps3 is just fine. Other than the fact that the PS3 has no infrared port on the front, its pretty much a perfect player in regards to BD.
We sell the new BDPS300 and it doesn't support 1.1.
My guess the PS3 will get the update, but all the current stand alone's will get screwed over after Nov. of this yr.
I love the show but $124.99 is way too much unless those extra features are really that good. They need to bring down the price.
@ I heard that firmware updates took care of that issue.
Pre-order off of Amazon for just $85, that's a great deal. I just did that same pre-order deal for Heroes Season 1 on HD DVD. Yeah, you gotta wait a day or two to get it shipped to you, but that's worth saving $35-$40 IMO.
MK_Red, do you work for this site? You seem to be here all the time, posting stuff.
He doesn't sleep one bit ^_^.
Its like crack!
This is too little too late. Everyone who love Lost must've seen the entire season on DVD already and its hard to justify the absurd pricetag for the BR version.
and on Blu-ray, I won't buy it, but I'm sure as hell going to rent it.
HD-DVD players do which allows for updates, even the 360 hd-dvd add-on gets updates onto the player itself for some movies which are very tiny files in kb.
If the older blu-ray players and the PS3 can get the update online via an update then it should be ok for everyone.
Thats why I keep saying there is NO such thing as future proofing.
there is no way i'm paying 124.99 for 1 season of any show!
