New Blu-Ray Movie Can Only Be Played On PS3

A major disk glitch has occured with one of the latest Blu-Ray movie releases. The acclaimed horror film The Descent was recently released in the new next-gen format but will only work on the Playstation 3 Blu-Ray player. A blank screen is shown when attempting to play the movie on regular Sony and Pioneer Blu-Ray movie players. According to a story at the reason is that the movie's distributor, Lionsgate, used BD-Java technology to handle The Descent's picture-in-picture commentary feature. Sony will apparently issue an update to its player that will fix the problem later this year; there is no word on when the Pioneer Blu-Ray disk player will be able to be fixed.

I dought it. You are going to tell me that they mass produced this movie without testing it on a stand alone blu-ray drive? Sounds to me like Sony wants to stab other hardware manufacturers by buying the better blu-ray player (PS3) that play blu-ray movies better (Quality), play more movies and is cheaper.
