Maybe to Xbox 360 in the future?
Divx announced today that Sony will be adding Divx functionality to the Playstation 3. This will allow PS3 users to play back Divx encoded content on the PS3.
Divx is still working to get the Divx software certified for use on the PS3 platform, but it is expected that it will be contained in an upcoming update. Games and game developers will be able to take advantage of this Divx format by using the Divx decoder technology in the latest version of the PS3 Software Developers Kit.
Rumors are still circulating that Divx is trying to reach a similar agreement to make the Divx format available on the Xbox 360, as well. Now that the PS3 announcement has been made that might speed up the process, and we could hear that Divx is coming to the Xbox 360 after all.
