New Firmware Update Beats Blu-ray Hackers, Patches DRM Cracks 200°
336w ago - A new Blu-ray firmware update has fixed a flaw in the format's DRM, which made the discs susceptible to piracy.

The update is for BD+ and makes the format secure once more, after companies like SlySoft, creators of the AnyDVD HD software, bragged about finding a way around the disc's DRM.

Admittedly, someone called James on the SlySoft forums does think that the new update won't hold for long, saying that he "estimates February 2009 for the new BD+ to be defeated."

Is Sony Sabotaging the PlayStation 3 Console and Blu-ray? 500°
336w ago - Washington Times writer Sonny Bunch has released a very controversial article saying that instead of trying to bolster the PS3 and Blu-ray as much as possible, Sony is hindering and sabotaging the system and the format. Sounds crazy, right? Well, he actually makes a few good points.

First of all, he criticizes Sony because in these bad economic times, instead of releasing a cheaper console, they released a more expensive SKU:

We're dealing with the worst economy...

Star Ocean for XBox 360 Uses 3 DVDs, Microsoft Needs Blu-ray 200°
337w ago - The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 may be virtually indistinguishable on most levels, but the media format they use is one area they do diversify.

With the news that Star Ocean: The Last Hope is going to need three DVDs, does this show why Microsoft needs Blu-ray more than Blu-ray needs Microsoft?

No-one can really blame Microsoft for choosing to stick with the DVD format when it was developing the Xbox 360. Blu-ray wasn't really a viable format at that stage in time, and even now, three years later, its success isn't guaranteed. But now could be the time when Microsoft...

Benchmark Proves PlayStation 3 is the Best Blu-ray Player 200°
338w ago - A benchmark test on Blu-ray players has recently been conducted by Blu-ray.com, and findings based on the results indicate that overall the PlayStation 3 is the best Blu-ray player out there.

It out performed all its competitors, and the fact that the PS3 doubles up as a game console makes it the best choice if you want a Blu-ray player.

To quote: The results were a bit surprising, to tell the truth, since they proved that actually, Sony's PS3 was pretty much THE best Blu-ray player out there, out-performing each and every...

Chinese Pirates Crack Blu-ray DRM, Sell Pirated HD Discs 250°
340w ago - Movie pirates are distributing fake Blu-ray movie titles in China, which are essentially ordinary DVDs passed off as Blu-rays.

According to a WSJ report, the counterfeit Blu-ray discs are ordinary DVDs that hold the same movie content as the original Blu-ray but it is encoded in the AVCHD format. AVCHD is based on the MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) video format, enabling recording of high-definition 1080i and 720p video onto cheap DVD discs.

"We are concerned and are assigning priority to this...

PlayStation 3 Now $400 More Than the Cheapest Blu-ray Player 550°
341w ago - Remember when the PS3 came out? It was comfortably the cheapest Blu-ray player on the market. That was a huge selling point for the console, trust us. When the PS2 first launched we conducted a survey that showed that over 30% of the early adopters bought it primarily for its DVD playback.

We haven't seen figures for the PS3 in relation to how many consumers picked it up as a Blu-ray player, but the release strategies and state of the market are comparative and a similar percentage would've been expected. (we've contacted Sony for this statistic and will update you when/if we...

341w ago - Nine years ago, the DVD of "The Matrix" shattered records and catapulted the budding DVD format into the mainstream. Can "The Dark Knight" do the same thing for Blu-ray?

The Blu-ray release of "The Dark Knight" is slated to Dec. 9, and as Video Business [via High-Def Digest] reports, Warner Brothers has more than a million Blu-ray copies of the Batman blockbuster teed up for retailers–reportedly, the most ever for a Blu-ray movie to date.

Indeed,...
