Awesome news, it shows how important easy-to-distribute software upgrades are for players. It does suck that having an Ethernet port on BD players is not required, hence distributing new firmwares can be a pain. Looks like the PS3 is now THE ultimate BD player, apart from no bitstreaming (as far as we know?
Great to see DTS working with Cyberlink and Sony to get DTS-HD Master Audio on two platforms in the same month (PS3 and PowerDVD 8).
Oh and Kazz you'll be in for a treat, I watched ID4 on PDVD8 last night and um.... W O W

For giggles, I compared a couple of scenes in I, Robot BD to my DVD 2-disc release. Although suprisingly both the DD and DTS tracks on the DVD hold up well, they are no match for the full DTS-HD MA.
