It is a big deal, but relatively so… When one considers that the VAST majority of BR players purchased are PS3 players/consoles-- it really is not a big deal (relatively speaking). It almost sounds like the new standard was designed around the PS3. Heck, if “The Cell Broadband Engine” optimized for media like this won’t handle PIP— I do not know what the MORE POWERFUL alternative for an even remotely affordable player could be. Not that all players will use Cell. Personally I think Cell will handle it swimmingly and many other processors will do just fine. Point-- I do not think this will have much of a negative affect. In fact, it should be promising to the studios that the blueray group is finally getting their their junk together and unifying things like the HD DVD camp did from the get-go.
