Impressive that the first blu-ray on the market, or pretty much, is also the one the most "future proof". And also now is one of the cheapest blu-ray players, with almost as good features as High end blu-ray players (minus a few high end Audio decoding options).

PS3 will get every CODEC, I really wouldn't worry about that. If any CODEC is necessary, Sony will notice and will pay the necessary royalties in order to convert the PS3 into the ultimate Media Center, as they did with DivX certification.

I don't really think they would allow some containers either such as MKV files

But I do Like your thinking

don't know what BD-Live is, but if it's as easy as a firmware update than i'm all for it... pretty cool that the PS3 is so futureproof
