"...Gizmodo met with the company, which shared some interesting details on the big move.
First of all, unlike the Xbox 360, the PS3 is DivX certified. While the Microsoft's console can only playback some DivX files, the PS3 will get full DivX functionality. This includes the ability for game developers to use the very efficient compression format for in-game cut-scenes.
This means DivX video cut scenes will reduce stress on the machine, theoretically allowing for better load times, less power consumption, and less heat output."
