PS3 to play Xvid and DivX?

Recommended Videos

Well, not yet. But, after this week’s version 2.0 update has been installed, it seems that the PS3 is “aware” of more video file types, including the DivX and Xvid video codecs.

The sharp and beady eyes of Kotaku noticed that the PS3 now can “see” these once unseen, unsupported file types in the system’s browser. It’s a shame that these files won’t play (yet), but if the file types are now acknowledged, it could point to something that Sony may be working on for a future update.

Support of these codecs is the holy grail for video downloading fiends like myself. Let’s hope that Sony isn’t just pulling our chain on this.
