They should especially be worried about Premiere CS5. Adobe has been hyping it very loudly and if it’ll really be as good as they say it will, their would be almost no point to getting Final Cut at all.

This would be like Sony refusing to allow NetFlix on the PS3 but they did the right thing and not be stubborn. I mean, if they didn’t support NetFlix, it would have been one of the most stupid things Sony has ever done. They want as many PS3’s sold as possible and theirs no time to play politics and miss out. Basically if someone wanted to buy a game system and are obsessed with NetFlix and don’t care about Blu-Ray, the chances of them buying a 360 would be much higher. Now that the PS3 is getting NetFlix support, the situation would be different. Never mind the fact that the PS3 finally cost the same as the 360.

Apple should take Sony’s example.

Here in the midwest I'm not seeing any Blu-ray penetration at all.

Bill- this works fine. You just wouldn't see the chapter list until the 2nd menu because there's just a "play" button icon and a "scene selection" button icon on the home menu.

Because of the PS3, I don't think Blu-Ray penetration is that bad no matter where you live and they'll be a whole lot more PS3's come Christmas although a lot of stores are including free games if you're buying one tomorrow.

Can anyone confirm if their PS3 will play BD-R and/or BD-RE?

Thanks for the info Adam. I know one of my customers has one (PS3) he bought last year so that he could play Bluray (as well as for the gaming). He will be getting a BD-R in a few weeks. Nice to know, it should play fine.
