PS3 getting DTS-HD-MA Confirmed
From the Playstation Blog

Firmware (v.2.30) Details

I have more good news to report today Ė the system software update will also add DTS-HD Master Audio output for Blu-ray videos, which means the high-definition visuals of Blu-ray will now be matched with the highest quality audio for the ultimate movie-watching experience on PS3.

DTS-HD Master Audio is literally bit-for-bit identical to the studio master recording and makes movie soundtracks and sound effects truly come to life. The technology delivers audio at the incredibly high rate of 24.5 mega-bits per second (Mbps) on Blu-ray disc, which is significantly higher than standard DVDs. DTS-HD Master Audio also offers 7.1 audio channels at 96k sampling frequency/24 bit depths, so youíll be totally immersed in the sound. The firmware update will add DTS-HD High Resolution Audio as well, which is a similar output technology that requires less disc space. You can read more about both codecs here.

A lot of you, particularly the home theatre enthusiasts and audiophiles out there, have been asking us for this capability, and we canít wait until you have an opportunity to pop in a compatible Blu-ray video to test it out for yourself.

It looks like this leaked out of Sony just looking at the pictures

It looks really cool and with all the new features coming up I might be very tempted to buy one.

That's interesting but I wonder if they had to make the power brick external to shrink it down that much?

Yeah I saw this too...I'm totally psyched, every issue with the PS3's ability to support certain HD profiles/audio codecs are being completely resolved and fixed. The resulting avalanche in PS3 sales is going to be great for all!


As for the PSN Store update, here's what the new store will look like:

There's a dramatic decrease in load times when you go between pages. Looks like the store will be saved to the HDD (akin to the XBL Marketplace). Looks pretty nice actually.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 09:56 AM.
