Sony’s next gen console is to come loaded with DivX video technology.
For those that already own a PS3, DivX functionality will be made available via a software update.
Developers will be able to utilise DivX’s decoder technology by updating the system software of PS3’s Software Development Kit to version 2.00, which was released by SCE on November 2nd.
Over 100 million certified DivX products have been shipped worldwide to date.
We are excited to work with Sony Computer Entertainment to bring DivX to PS3,” said Kevin Hell, CEO of DivX. Our technology will expand the multimedia functionality of PS3 by enabling users to enjoy access to the broad library of content in the DivX digital media format.”
