PS3 Gets 3D Blu-ray Support - but without Lossless Audio

    As announced last week (see Blu-ray.com, September 16), new firmware version 3.50 is now available for the PlayStation 3, which enables support for the Blu-ray 3D specification on all incarnations of the PS3 console. However, Sony Computer Entertainment has confirmed that DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD won't be supported on the PS3 during 3D Blu-ray playback.

    Thus, when playing back a 3D BD with a DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack, the PS3 will output DTS. When playing back a 3D BD with a Dolby TrueHD soundtrack, the PS3 will output Dolby Digital. This affects both PCM output and bitstreaming (available on slim consoles only).

    I wonder why. Is it some sort of bandwidth issue?

    And there goes my idea of continuing to use my PS3 ("fat" version) in my new room.

    Then again, I haven't exactly decided on this whole 3D thing...

    The lack of lossless audio kind of sucks. But it's nonetheless pretty cool that a PS3 can be updated to play 3D Blu-Rays. Not that it matters much to me as I won't be buying a new TV set anytime soon.
