Default sony removing pcm audio on some releases

Is anyone else upset that sony is removing pcm audio from some of their releases. For example spiderman 1 and 2 and the legend of zoro. Most of the players out there do not decode dolby true hd but just play the dolby digital core, therefore greatly reduced sound quality.

I think Sony might be gauging the BD demographics. All the latest 2nd gen (and even 3rd gen) models of BD players either come equipped to decode Dolby TrueHD or can be firmware upgraded to decode it. I'm willing to bet that a great majority of BD owners now have the means to listen to Dolby TrueHD.

Though, yeah, it is a little frustrating for those who still can't. Sony has always been good about making their discs fully compatible by at least including an LPCM track so I can understand how this trend can suck from that point of view.
