- Sony sacrifices lossless audio for PS3 3D Blu-ray playback
THIS ARTICLE IS MISLEADING….the fact is before f/w v3.50 the PS3 didn’t support 3D Blu-ray movie playback at all! What Sony is stating here is that the PS3 will now playback 3D Blu-rays – as well as 2D discs – but when playing back 3D Blu-rays, it’ll be at the expense of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD being converted to (lossy) Dolby Digital and DTS respectively.
Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD are lossless compressed audio formats. For 2D Blu-rays, the PS3 decompresses these audio streams (in real-time) and outputs the sound as PCM (also lossless). Obviously at the moment it’s either struggling to do that plus 3D at the same time, or perhaps the developer simply hasn’t worked out how to do it yet. A future firmware update may sort this out, but for a first stab at showing 3D Blu-ray movies, it’s not a bad update.
# When Dolby TrueHD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in Dolby Digital during playback of Blu-ray 3D™ content.
# When DTS-HD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in DTS during playback of Blu-ray 3D™ content.
As there’s no mention & supposing the 3D Blu-ray’s movie audio is encoded as LPCM, then the PS3 should be able to pass that through (as lossless PCM audio) without problem? Perhaps ensuring the PCM option is ticked in the system settings and the Dolby TrueHD / DTS-HD aren’t would force the use of the LPCM audio on a disc (if the disc provides it).
SO THERE IS NO Dolby True HD SUPPORT FOR 3D BLU RAY.. FOR NOW

Anyone else feel that it’s kinda funny how 2009 and 2010 are the best years for the PSP by far, and it’s only truly picked up around the time it’s successor is due?
