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

You guys are making far too much out of far too little. BD-J interactivity and new BD profiles are evolving fast. Hence the updates issue. In about 18 months those issues will have been worked out pretty comprehensively and very few players/discs shipping after that point will require updates for any "watch a movie" functionality. By the time J6P buys a player, it will be a non-issue. For any HD DVD proponent trying to spin this upgradability as a problem with BD, I'm assuming you never applied any updates to your Tosh A1 in order to get 5.1 Dolby True HD playback or compatibility with various combo-discs that required software updates to play properly?
