Submission + - Your Blu-ray player won't play future discs

wfberg writes: Having won the format war, Blu-ray Disc Association president Andy Parsons expressed his gratitude to early adopters saying 'it's normal for new technology to change and older hardware to become obsolete'. Apparently, BD 2.0 discs will not play on current hardware, and only the PS3 might be upgradeable to 2.0. The explanation for putting out an incomplete standard? "We should have waited another year to introduce Blu-ray to the public, but the format war changed the situation"
