PS3 DivX Functionality Coming "Very Soon"

50°
331w ago - We met with DivX earlier today to discuss their upcoming plans, and one of the topics that came up was support for the PS3 console. According to the company, they expect the previously announced firmware update to hit the PS3 soon, which will enable full DivX support for the console.

Though no specific time frame was given for this upgrade, their particular emphasis on saying it was coming soon leads us to believe it's "coming in a week or two" soon, as opposed to "4 months down the road" soon.

As far as upgrade details go, the PS3 is DivX-certified, meaning not only is playback guaranteed to function properly, but game developers can also use the compression format for in-game cutscenes In comparison, the Xbox 360 merely supports playback of DivX-encoded videos [DivX].

Latest MotorStorm update out today

331w ago - The latest MotorStorm update has been released today. Now included is a vehicle selection of 2D/3D within the host options as well as mirrored tracks. There is also 2 new music tracks in the form of Devils Crossing and Beat the Devil.

To quote: The host can also choose mirrored tracks which reverses the entire geometry set of the tracks. Where you went left you will now go right. An interesting mix, and will take some getting used too not to forget which way you're actually going!

The addition of a proximity meter in MotorStorm mode is also welcome, and works like the one in eliminator mode.

There are also 2 new music tracks, 'Devils Crossing' by Elite Force and 'Beat The Devil' by Jiffster (Featuring Bard)
