PS3 ain’t top dawg BluRay player anymore

Does the PS3 really have HDMI 1.3? – Format War Central

When the PS3 hit the street it was recognized as one of the most full featured Blu-ray players
to date, but it seem now that PS3 owners aren’t getting everything they
thought they were. It has recently been uncovered that although the PS3
does have an HDMI 1.3 port,
the software does not support bit stream audio. What this means for
Blu-ray fans is that when they finally pick up one of those new Onkyo receivers with HDMI 1.3, that they still can’t enjoy Dolby TrueHD or DTS HD
because there is no way to get the bits out of the PS3. Of course the
DTS track can still be down mixed and PCM audio is supported, but so
much for being the most capable Blu-ray player available.
