  • 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).

    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?

    So the whole 10 year life cycle isn’t looking too far fetched anymore :p It probably won’t reach the same sale numbers though, haha.

    Sooo how much are they profiting from every ps3 sold now? I didn’t see any info on that.

  5. this is cool, it will only get better from here on =D

  6. wow
    sony sold ps3s for 600 despite costing them more than 800 to make
    and made constant price cuts and dident earn a single buck of the ps3 all up until now
    i gues its safe to say that despite the ps3s price you were getting a loot more than what you payed for
    for the original ps3 buyers it ewen profit for 200$+

    i like the thought that there are some companies out there that dont feel like filling their greedy pockets with my money
    ceep it up sony

    good for them. now they dont have to be afraid of selling there PS3’s

    That’s good to hear. Now that Sony’s not struggling with that they can do even more for the system now. I’m looking forward to seeing what all they are going to do now.

  9. software and hardware sales are rising, there is no need for next-gen when Ps3 games are still good at the moment. The 10 years cycle looks promising to me.

  10. good sony deserve this and with the subscription on PSN they would hope to recover their losses which they made early in PS3 life cycle.

  11. Good news! If nothing else they need resources to put into PS4. 🙂
