CNET Australia reports that PCs now have a solution to that pesky problem of, you know, not having any software that can actually play Blu-ray discs on Sony's newest drive. Sony has just released a downloadable update to its bundled PowerDVD app so that its BWU-100A Blu-ray drives will work, allowing for out-of-the-box playback of commercial discs -- of course, that assumes you have an HDCP-compliant graphics card as well.
