now, give me a Movie Player please :D
With MKV support, and SRT SUbs

And this is why homebrew is ace. If someone manages to get something like XBMC (will be called Kodi in the near future ) you'd have all them decoders and a full media application.

Doubt Sony will bring a big range of decoders to the PS4. But eh you can't have it all.

I got a raspberry Pi and case for about $40, put an XBMC SD card in that, and suddenly it's a media center device that puts both consoles to shame!

@uth11 You know, my plane puts my car to shame because it flies... But my car puts my plane to shame because it is able to drive through small tunels...
And my cat put both my car and plane to shame because it "meows"!...

And those comparations, as your, are so useful! :)

I got myself a raspberry Pi too, which I use as a server and XBMC (well, it can't do both at the same time, sadly... becomes too slow), but I don't think it puts any other device to shame... it's small... and that's it... Welp, even decoding mkv @ 1080p is slow...

That makes sense, maybe later down the line with better compression algorithms the video save function can be upgraded to 1080p from 720p smoothly because of this. Kind of like Ustream and Twitch upgraded their stream compression algorithms.

Totally lame article. Unless you have a 24bit, 192khz DAC - who cares.
