I believe the 5.1 out will be going thru the HDMI 1.3.

Correct, actually it goes up to 7.1 uncompressed audio. 2 PS3 games so far will be using that as well

I've yet to hear if the multi av out will have DD 5.1 coaxial. I'm out of opticals.

It's built into the unit itself.

I doubt the MultiOut will have coaxial digital out.

The article on that page stated that load time was in the 10 second vicinity, far less than BD and HD-DVD stand alone players currently out.

Side note on the PS3, replacing the harddrive. Anyone heard if you can just buy a 160GB and replace it with the one in there yourself?

It's about time now that we get some actual movie playback reviews of it!!!!

Supposed to be a standard 2.5" SATA drive.

Right. But can we assume that all the OS stuff is not on the HD, so if you put in a new drive, the system will just say "Press X to format drive" instead of "Error reading drive"..?

According to:

Question #8

PLAYSTATION®3 hard disk drive is removable and upgradable. You can upgrade the drive by removing the hard drive and replacing it with a larger capacity drive.

upgradeable, but with one they sell you or an off the shelf drive? They have hinted at the latter, but I guess we will have to wait and see. I do wonder about the question of the OS/shared applications, how would you transfer them to the new drive or are they all contained in non volitile memory somewhere in the electronics (and could reinstall themselves accordingly onto a blank drive)?

yes, I think I remember kuratagi saying something to that effect in the pre-launch hype, but I'll wait and see what the logistics of really doing that happen to be. It's not like they give you an OS install disk or a copy of a ghosting program with the PS3 or anything...

You guys have been missing the big picture. Really.


This is the side pix of what formats the PS3 is supporting. It is full of logos we've come to expect.


This is the logo for DVD-Video.


However, I think this is the logo that is used on the PS3.



fuad

Edit: Okay, having access to official photos of the PS3, I can say that the PS3 does not do DVD-Audio. The DVD logo merely says "Video/ROM". Oh well.

How can it be revived when it was hardly promoted to begin with? Unfair really, because Elton John SACDs are SUPERB!

However, you're still not seeing the big picture. Look again. Or should I spell it out?

They were promoting it for a while. I liked SACD over DVD-A since alot of the discs had a CD layer also. I have around 30 titles but I haven't bought any in a long time. If they would start pushing it again I would definitely buy some more.

No, but it probably can deliver SACD audio over HDMI as either very high quality PCM or as DSD. Personally I don't see SACD becoming big because of the popularity of online music sales/downloads.

A bit of bad news:

Apparently, the PS3 will not upscale regular DVDs.

(IGN mentions it on the fourth page of their look at the PS3 menu.

Edit: sorry for the link, but I obviously can not post them until I reach five posts.
