For owners with the right hardware, 2008 is when they will see what Blu-ray Java
is truly capable of. Bringing the confusion
come to an end, Fox announced during the Blu-ray Festival that the first movie on the format with true picture-in-picture will be the sci-fi flick Sunshine
in January. VideoBusiness also learned from Fox VP Steve Feldstein that he expects more players (aside from the PS3 and BD-UP5000
) to be in the market that are equipped to handle the extra features. Tomorrow is the BDA's self-imposed deadline
, after which new players have to support PiP, persistent memory, and internet connections.
Whether or not Warner Bros. drops HD DVD support
, Walt Disney has also announced plans to include PiP on Finding Nemo
and other titles later in the year.
