Just announced. Looks like they've got the issues nailed down and will be releasing a patch to incorporate it soon.

Hopefully this will allow divx burned discs to play on it also.
Porn on the PS3. It's about time! :action-sm
It's probably part of the 2.0 update that came out a few days ago. For now, I'm not downloading it because it totally fucks up backward compatibility on a lot of games, including (and most importantly) Gran Turismo 4.

With the 2.0 update it recognized divx and mov files. It was able to play the mov files but no dice on the divx. Looks like it'll be changed soon.

You don't need porn on the PS3, everyone knows that's what the PSP is for. ;)

isn't the 360 supposed to be getting DivX support as well. I don't really care if it does since my PS3 will first.

Firmware 2.1 will be released this week.

According to rumors. It'll not only include Divx. But it'll include VC-1 encoded WMV files.

Plus it'll be updated the include Bonusview Blu-ray discs (Profile 1.1)

Overall a great media update.
