This will be a rather short rant, but Sony has officially annoyed and pissed me off! Playstation 3 owners have been damn near begging and pleading with Sony for a firmware update that adds support for MKV files for…..well since the PS3 was first released basically. All of their pleading has been in vain and simply shrugged off by Sony in an apparent complete disregard for the desires of its customer base. However, they already have a firmware supporting 3D video out to beta testers.
So in all the years that the PS3 has been out, Sony can’t seem to add simple MKV support to their firmware, but can in a matter of months add full support for technology that hasn’t even been released. That’s just crap! Why does Sony refuse to add MKV support? Do they just not care about what we want? To be honest, I don’t even use MKV containers at the moment as ts files are working just fine for me and therefore this doesn’t prevent me from doing anything at the moment. However, MKV is a popular and widely used container that also happens to be open source and standards oriented. It is mainly for those reasons that I would love to move my media collection over to MKV files, but can’t because Sony has decided for some reason to be pricks about the issue.
The whole situation makes me even more mad since I already own so much Sony gear. Anyway, I just wanted to rant for a bit to vent some of my frustration at this whole issue. What do you all think about them refusing to support MKV files?
