It doesn't matter much to me but that's kind of nuts. You can bet PS4 will be. I mean you've got an optical drive in there, does it cost that much to go Blu-ray? They're practically giving players away these days.
Can this be corrected with firmware ?
None what-so-ever for me. The Xbone will be the first bluray player ever purchased by my household and it will never be used to play a single BD movie. The 3D feature on my Samsung smart TV has only been used for 1 movie just to say I've tried it before putting the 2 included glasses away for good. 3D TV's don't matter so I'd imagine the players matter even less.
The thing is, the Xbox One DOES have a Blu-ray reader... it's just that Microsoft is conscientiously deciding to ignore 3D Blu-ray. Undeniably strange, since the hardware is capable of it.
WHAAAAAATTTTTTT???? NO WAY!!
It can be corrected with firmware but what I dislike is the MS attitude. 3D does matter for many who spent money on their TV And want to experience 3D movies, specially for a device who want to be a media HUB, now it seems I'll still need a bluray
Isn't 3D dead?
3D is not dead. It didn't gain the popularity that many had hoped for but it is still used by many. Personally I love it when it is done right like in Avatar.
