Playstation 4 could have cinavia

It has been announced that the the Playstation 4 will have a blu-ray drive. Sony…
being the greedy d-bags that they are, they will be putting this parasite in
the upcoming console. (and yes they will put it in)…unless they find god…:D:D:D

Now Microsoft’s upcoming console hasn’t been announced however…there is a very good
chance Microsoft will not be putting this parasite in…and folks let me tell ya…this
could give Microsoft a serious advantage. Cinavia for some reason hasn’t been fully blown
open and exposed to the masses…thus cinavia is still under the radar after all, not everyone
has a new BD (2012+) player or a PS3.

Well … duh?
They slipped it into the PS3, and all new BD players … why would the PS4 be any different?

If Microsoft includes a blu ray disc drive, and they intend for it to play commercial blu ray movies, the player will have to conform to AACS specifications. Cinavia is part of the AACS protection scheme now, so Microsoft will not be able to ignore it.

There is no chance that a blu ray player in the new console from Microsoft will be Cinavia free.

Now I was talking to some at Microsoft forum (xbox 360 forum) and they claim if a bluray
drive is incorporated cinavia support will likely be very slim…it will only support it
from optical drive only (video files will be exempt) and they even go on to say
"there are no legal requirements to use it"
…now the post in question has been removed…not sure why. Microsoft unlike Sony
may offer an advantage over the Playstation 4…pretty sure of it now. Time will tell.

Cinavia wouldn’t be integrated into the actual Blu-ray drive itself but the console will presumably be required to support it for Blu-ray playback.

In order to play commercially made blu ray movies from a disc, every player that includes a blu ray disc drive must conform to AACS specifications and have a license from the AACS LLC. Starting in February of 2012, every new device that is introduced for blu ray playback must include Cinavia detection as part of the revised AACS standard. This includes both stand alone players, and software players.

I’ll repeat. There is [B]no[/B] chance that a blu ray player in the new console from Microsoft will be Cinavia free if it has a blu ray drive.

It [B]might[/B] be possible for the console to play media files from usb sticks or external hard drives, and not trigger Cinavia found on those files. There are currently a few blu ray players with this behavior.

That may not be entirely true. Although manufactures will be required to implement this, popular gaming consoles like the X-Box and Playstation families tend to get the attention of hackers. Perhaps they will find a way to remove this crap, giving you a Cinivia free device.

Probably not the news someone looking to make legal backups would hope for, but better than nothing, right?

Boy, ain’t we lucky to have such an upstanding outfit like _____ with a Cinavia crack already done!! (Sorry folks - I just can’t type their name without cracking up!)
