At the Sony booth, they are showcasing two new prototype BD-Live players. The Sapphire 3 and 4 will both be Profile 2.0. Sony also has indicated that the PS3 will get a BD-Live upgrade sometime in the future.
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).
Future proof the hd dvd guys must be crying now
just hope they update with DTS MA, would be awesome
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
BD-Live ? What it's gonna be ?
IE Online capabilities on the player.
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
I wish they could add codecs for the old Xvid and DviX files so i can watch my old anime on my PS3...
just re run them with divx convert
Can DTS MA be added to the PS3 with a software update? I want to get a decent amp sometime this year to complete my home entertainment system. Right now I just have Dolby Digital Stereo through an optical cable. My JVC amp is about 5 years old at this point. One more thing, what is the cheapest receiver/amp that has the high end lossless surround codecs?
i got a yamaha reciver,,,will it be easy as getting a 7.1 reciver with two extra speakers and hooking it up via hdmi?
It would of been nice if they would of announced PS3 to get in-game XMB firmware update.
They're working on it already ;) , don't worry, maybe it will come with HOME
Ingame XMB is really neede thougt i hope they hurry up with both home and that...thats all i'm asking for after that ..no more complains from my part...
thats why i bought a ps3 over a month ago.'
it just keeps getting updates that adds functionality. that to me means alot
well even though i didn't exactly buy my ps3 because of that...i agree with you the freakin firmware updates are sweet....
And the hits just keep on coming.
Sony is dead serious about winning *another console war. WOW
texture smoothing I should say. anyone feel the same?
There's probably only so much that smoothing is going to be able to do for PS1 titles, particularly on HDTV's. Even those running at 640X480. You can't smooth what isn't there.
The No Games doesn't work anymore. Every system is their you must play titles give it a rest.
Agreed and bubble for you. Each system has games that appeal to different people which is a good thing. It is good to see that people that use the blu-ray player for movies in their PS3 aren't going to be at a loss because the PS3 was released during the grace period of profile 1.0
great now can we get a decent store update please? the last two were utter bollocks- i want the japanese ps1 games and PAIN, gimme gimme
Neo Geo... add me on your PSN i got some games we can play. PS3 has some very good titles coming out. Yes. i admit its a really slow release.. but they are coming man. Stand by your baby and make it proud!!!!
Just want SONY to do two things. In-game XMB and Biohazard...Resident Evil 2. I've seen it on the japanesee store but I'd really want it on the EU store as well.
Profile 2.0 on PS3 is a welcome news. Keep it coming SONY.
I like the sound of that. Man I love my PS3.
All they really need to add is an ingame Media bar so I can talk to people while playing a game (mostly Ninja Gaiden Sigma) and/or some way to bypass NAT 3 so I can play Tekken online without getting booted every 3 minutes. I live in an apt complex and there's no way I can get NAT 1 or 2 even the cable company and Network admins can help with the situation.
Prototype: Have you tried this... http://www.ps3forums.com/sh...
I can't hook up my PS3 to the internet at home as I do not have broadband and have no access to it in that location. I can bring my machine to work where I have broadband. Is there any way to get the add-ons (for Guitar Hero 3 in particular) or demos to my machine without lugging it into work every time something good comes out in the PS store? I've done the firmware update by downloading it to memory stick but I am unsure if there is a similar option for these other types of downloads. Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you for the help in advance!
There is a PS store via a PC. Just download content, then put on a Memory stick (ensuring its big enough) then insert that into your PS3 and transfer across.
when are we getting the update?
hope its soon love firmware updates
I really love the updates but it takes me A DAMN LONG TIME to download them with my broken 30kbps transfer rate ROGERS ULTRA LITE FTW!!!!!
You can download the firmwares in work (assuming your working) and use your works ultra fast connection :) The, if you have a big enough memory stick you can update from that.
because I love firmware updates :D :D
