Haven't these been leaked a couple months ago? Before the 1.8 update came out?

This is identical to the 2.00 rumor that was started a long time ago. The line that makes me think the whole thing is false:

[Zero Unused Disk Space] has been added as an option under [System Settings] > [Format Utility].

Someone who doesn't realize that a 60 GB rated hard drive is actually 55 gigabytes wrote this up...

They(Sony) can enable it via software download yet they choose not to. It doesn't really matter for HD DVD since most titles don't use it, as the majority have opted to use Dolby TrueHD since it is mandated in the spec that all players must be able to decode TrueHD while DTS-HD Master Audio is optional.
