Regardless of that doesn't affect me one bit as I owned an SACD and CD transport, but I can see how this will impact those buying it as media/music streamers.
Its not really going to effect anyone too much, its just that it was nice to be able to use a ps3 as a source using DLNA and transcoding software, for convenience if nothing else. To be honest though, something like a western digital streamer is so cheap that it doesn't really matter. The ps3 never supported any formats that mattered anyway, and it seems like Sony is moving in the wrong direction again. That being said, I agree it would be ridiculous for someone to cancel a pre-order of a gaming console because its media capabilities are questionable.
