The PS3’s abilities just keep on expanding, and one of the newest future additions will be support for a popular video codec.

DivX, Inc. announced a partnership with Sony that will let its video technology be integrated into a future, yet undetermined, PS3 system update. The obvious benefit is that owners of the PS3 will be able to access far more videos than previously capable. But as an additional bonus, soon game developers will also be able to use DivX technology for future title creation, and the PS3 Software Development Kit will also be getting the DivX upgrade.

CEO of DivX, Inc., Kevin Hell, spoke regarding the announcement of the DivX upgrade for the PS3. “We are excited to work with Sony Computer Entertainment to bring DivX to PS3. Our technology will expand the multimedia functionality of PS3 by enabling users to enjoy access to the broad library of content in the DivX digital media format,” said Hell.
