I'm sorry if this post should even be here, but I'm so confused.
Say in December, I purchase Batman Begins in Blu-Ray. The film itslef is in BD-Java and PiP. Could I play the film on my PS3 I bought in Dec. 2006. If I can't, is there anything I could do (software, upgrades) I could purchase to allow my play the film??

Again, thanks for any help, it's just a little confusing for me.

Yes you can, there's no inherent problems with the hardware, everything can be fixed via-firmware updates.

EDIT: I'm talking about PS3 specifically. The memory issue can be resolved via the HDD.

Currently these features aren't required and picture-in-picture support isn't in the PlayStation 3 or Sony's lower priced BDP-S300 that will debut this summer
This is vague to me, will the PS3 be able to play back the PiP with a firmware or not?
Because If the PS3 won't be able to support PiP will Warner be able to ever release their IME content as is?

Plus who knows if they need more memory, they could do the Vista trick with USB Flash memory - if Microsoft can do, Sony sure could do it with PS3. Who knows - they maybe even a slot some where to upgrade the memory, the hard drive is easy to upgrade ( very easy ).

with the amount of upgrades we have seen for the PS3, this seems like a very possible upgrade

Considering the 360's implementation of HD DVD is purely software, I'll be surprised if there isn't a firmware upgrade for BD 1.1.

It's probably already in the works.
