Sony New DVD DRM Making Disks Unplayable… Again

Nice, after root kits, SXRD green-blob issues, class action lawsuits, flopped PS3 launches I thought Sony had learned it’s lesson… looks like while the electronics division might have, the MPAA-ensconced portion of Sony hasn’t.

The GameSpot crew got some time to play the new Resident Evil on the Wii, and what they found out is that it’s a “on rails” (meaning you don’t control movement, like from the old Sega arcade-shooter games and you progress by killing baddies but the camera will swing you towards the action and make […]

It’s official, Samsung has announced a dual-format HD media player: BD-UP5000. This looks to be the first real dual-format player as the LG dual-format player was a Blu-ray player with HD-DVD play-only support tacked on, and didn’t support the true HD-DVD specification; which, like the Blu-ray spec, defines additional technologies like the HDi interactive language, […]
