CES: Panasonic Intros First BD-Live Blu-ray Player

Panasonic has unveiled plans to release the very first BD-Live Blu-ray player, the DMP-BD50.

The new player will include all of the features of the company's recently-released DMP-BD30K, plus internal TrueHD/DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and analog outputs allowing for full 7.1 channel surround sound when connected with a 7.1 channel amplifier and speakers.

The player's BD-Live functionality will enable users to connect the DMP-BD50 to the internet to download such data as images and subtitles, and to join in multi-player interactive games that are linked to bonus movie content contained on Blu-ray discs

This is the only player so far to feature BD-live. I wonder how this feature will work when viewing movies and whether the PS3 will get a firmware update for this.
