PlayStation 3 media formats

Post by Apoptosis » Fri Oct 27, 2006 9:44 am

The list of media formats that are compatible with PlayStation 3:

* Blu-Ray (ROM, -R, -RE)
* DVD (ROM, -R, -RW, R, RW)
* CD (ROM, -R, -RW, Super Audio)
* MPEG-1
* MPEG-2 (PS, TS)
* MPEG-4 SP
* MPEG-4 AVC/H.264.
* ATRAC
* AAC
* MP3
* WAV
* JPEG
* GIF
* PNG
* TIFF
* BMP

Aside from obvious disc differences, PS3 and PSP accept a near-identical list of formats (PSP is compatible with WMA files). It is disappointing that PS3 won't support some of the popular video codecs (e.g., XviD, DivX) out of the box.
