First Blu-ray BD Profile 1.1 Review (Verdict: Is That All?)

Gizmodo - Fri Jan 4 2008:

The Players: Panasonic DMP-BD30 ($500) and Sony PlayStation 3 with 2.1 firmware ($400 to $500)

The Movies: Fox's Sunshine and Sony Pictures' Resident Evil: Extinction

The Challenge: To find out what's so special about Blu-ray's BD Profile 1.1, also known as Full Standard Profile or just simply "Picture-In-Picture Enabled"

The story is too old to be commented.

their whole site is pure BS and full of xbots. (not xbox fans. Pure Xbots. there's difference between xbots and xbox fans )

and their position with divx in PS3 really made me laugh

None cares about these features anyway. It was just something the HD-DVD camp used as something that was better with their format. Like I said, no one cares.

hmmmmm this pip gets more intriguing by the minute i especially like the shot with sfx and the shot without sfx on the screen at the same time that should be cool

Could that article have had any more of a negative connotation to it???

I couldn't help but get the impression that the author was trying really hard to undermine the new 1.1 profile, yet ignore the fact that this new feature (whether it's useful or not is subjective to each individual) obliterates the miniscule, desperate, last-standing one-up that SOME HD-DVD players had over Blu-Ray.

I guess it doesn't matter to them that not all HD-DVD players are full-featured and future-proof either, eh? long as they claim so for Blu-Ray.

Yeah, despite the opposition's best efforts, I think it's about that time for everyone to Do Blu, dontchya think?

It did praise the PS3 vs the Panny though :)
