DivX certifies six Blu-ray players

DivX announced that it has granted DivX Certification to six new Blu-ray DVD players from Panasonic, Philips and Denon. The six Blu-ray DVD players will now join the Sony Playstation 3. The Playstation was already certified and was already capable of DivX playback in December 2007. Because of the DivX format consumers can now store and playback over 25 hours of DVD-quality video on a single Blu-ray disc. The 'winners' are the Panasonic DMP-BD30EE, the Philips BDP7220 and four models from Denon.

Analysts expect that DivX will become a standard-feature on Blu-ray devices since it shipped millions of DVD players worldwide. The same analyst also expects that worlwide shipments of Blu-ray players will reach 23 million in 2011.

With more and more players 'winning' DivX certifcation I also expect DivX to become standard feature on Blu-ray players. What do you think?
