Yesterday, sister site Engadget HD posted a link to a site that claimed the PlayStation 3 wasn't capable of outputting Dolby TrueHD or DTS HD, even though the PS3's HDMI 1.3 support should guarantee that. Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD are considered two of the highest-end audio formats on the market and since the PlayStation 3 is advertised as being able to support both of them, this caused a bit of an uproar amongst the more hardcore technophile PS3 owners.
Sony responded later in the day though, stating that the PS3 DID indeed support both formats - but that you have to use the PS3 to decode the signals, not a separate AV receiver. A minor bummer, but not a huge deal. Now, I just need $1600 to buy a receiver that actually supports HDMI 1.3.
