Default A PS3 update that would be cool.

It would be really cool if the PS3 could be updated to play all regions, whether the disc is locked or not. It'll never happen but I can dream. If they did do that it would make the system the Ultimate BD/DVD player to own, in my book.

Meh, not if the movie selection in other regions is as bad as ours.

The option would still be nice, considering there's movies both HD and non HD titles that I would love to own, but because of a pesky region code I never will unless they're released in the U.S. or Canada, except for select Blu-Rays that are free for all. I'm just saying the option should be there for those that would want it.

If VLC ever gets a Cell optimized 264 playback and AACS "support" it should be doable from Linux. I'd rather have DTS in XMB. Remuxing mkvs is easy enough so native playback isn't a biggy.

I really wish the PS3 could upscale lower-resolution content on Blu-Ray discs. It's not a huge deal, but whenever I watch an extra that is 4x3 standard-def, I have to go into my tv menu and set it to 4x3 mode. On regular DVDs, the PS3 will automatically pillar-box 4x3 material for you when the upscaler is activated.

I know that is a stickler for you, considering the circumstances - but..Isn't that more of a studio thing? I mean, the ps3 shows subtitles/captions for movies that support it..i know for a fact, because alot of times, I enable subtitles/captions to try and not miss out on any of the dialogue.

I would be happy if they allowed Multi Region Play back of PS1/PS2 Games. It would lighten my Load of Hardware tremendously.
