I have to admit that I don’t know much about DivX but it seems that the Sony has put more effort into DivX than Microsoft did.
According to tech.blorge.com…
First of all, unlike the Xbox 360, the PS3 is DivX certified. While the Microsoft’s console can only playback some DivX files, the PS3 will get full DivX functionality. This includes the ability for game developers to use the very efficient compression format for in-game cut-scenes.
While the ability to include DivX in a game must be an advantage I fail to see how the developers cannot use DivX in a 360 game since it is a closed system and can easily be tested?
Either way it’s more good news for Sony which seems to be on the rise at the moment.
