PlayStation 3 gets DivX certification

It’s official now, the PlayStation 3 will be getting DivX playback capabilities and full DivX certification. This came via an announcement from DivX, Inc. CEO Kevin Hell;

“We are excited to work with Sony Computer Entertainment to bring DivX to PS3. Our technology will expand the multimedia functionality of PS3 by enabling users to enjoy access to the broad library of content in the DivX digital media format.”

By receiving certification, that should mean the PlayStation 3 will be a full DivX enabled device, able to play DivX videos from hard disk or CD/DVDs, as well as streamed over a network. The update will come via a system update in the coming months.
