Sony is reportedly readying a hardware revision of their popular PlayStation 3 console with an updated Blu-ray ROM which will feature a new copy protection system to combat piracy.
One of the most irritating things about Sony's PlayStation 3 is that despite the many hacks and custom firmwares available, the region-locked Blu-ray drive had yet to be opened up. Now though one forum-goer has managed to rectify that.
Sony has always been a avid supporter of using top of the line physical storage media for their devices, for instance the PlayStation 2 was the first console with DVD drive, the killer feature of PlayStation 3 has always been the Blu-ray drive and the first-gen PlayStation Portable brought the new UMD media format. But recently, Sony killed UMD format with the PSP-Go in favor of distributing media over their online PlayStation Store. This obviously raised a lot of questions whether Sony will take PSP-Go like route for the next-gen PlayStation 4. Well apparently, this might not be the case after all.
According to sources at AppleInsider, Apple is preparing Mac mini’s for Hi-Definition HDMI output along with a possible Blu-ray drive option; set to release sometime this year. Prototype screens of the new Mac mini has been making rounds which surprisingly sports a HDMI connector instead of the traditional DVI-connector found on the current models of the mini’s.
