Divx Playback Support To PS3

It's now official: the PlayStation 3 console will get DivX video playback support via an upcoming software update.

“We are excited to work with Sony Computer Entertainment to bring DivX to PS3,” said Kevin Hell, CEO of DivX, Inc. “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.”

Products that bear the DivX Certified logo have undergone a rigorous testing program to ensure a high-quality DivX media experience that includes reliable video playback and excellent visual quality. DivX is currently working to certify PS3 and deliver a superior digital media technology to consumers in the near future. 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 utilize DivX’s decoder technology by updating the system software of PS3’s Software Development Kit to version 2.00, which was released by SCE on November 2nd.

It's believed the Xbox 360 will also get DivX support but that's not official yet.

All exited over the upcoming PS3 update firmware 2.01 as there were rumors that the firmware update was to offer divx or xvid support.
But PlayStation3 Firmware 2.01 doesn't support yet video encoded in the DivX video-compression format.
however DivX will be used in playing media as well as in gaming technology.
In fact, DivX already updated PS3’s SDK (Software Development Kit) to let game developers use DivX’s decoder in PS3 software.
