Default Re: Many Players Need Firmware Update To Play Spider-Man 3 on Blu-ray

I can understand the need to upgrade the firmware of BD players since it's an evolving format, are people just not upgrading the players until they have a problem or is the firmware not getting out in time?

I have the Playstation 3 & if you use it for playing games online, Folding@Home or go to the Playstation store it requires you to install the updates pretty much as soon as they are released so I haven't had a problem with either of the Pirates movies or Rise of the Silver Surfer & it looks like I won't have a problem with Spidey either.

So where does the problem lie?
Does it lie with the manufactures not getting the software out (Sony is getting the PS3's software out it seems) or do people just not realize their players need to be updated until there is a problem (seems unlikely since I'd hope our AVRev reviewers would be on top of these updates)?

Whatever the reason the manufactures need to get their act together before Joe 6 Pack gets on board.
Early adopters expect some hiccups, but J6P wants a seamless setup.
