Submission + - DivX Confirmed for PS3

jcc writes: After rumors first surfaced that the Xbox 360 may become DivX enabled, we have an official announcement that the Playstation 3 console is getting it (from Threespeech)

It has been announced that DivX® video technology will be integrated into the PS3.

Kevin Hell, CEO of DivX commented, "We are excited to work with Sony Computer Entertainment to bring DivX to PS3. Our technology will expand the multimedia functionality of PS3 by enabling users to enjoy access to the broad library of content in the DivX digital media format."

Current PS3 end users will be able to add DivX functionality to their systems via a separate system software update at a forthcoming date. PS3 game title developers will be able to utilise DivX's decoder technology by updating the system software of PS3's Software Development Kit to version 2.00.
