This was a smart play by Sony.
This puts Microsoft is a tough position.
- Allow streaming Divx
- Hurt their own movie sales (Xbox Live!)
- Maybe anger some movie studios that would be willing to provide more movies to the Live catalog
- Don't allow Divx
- Let PS3 have the upper hand
- Anger current and future customers

i dont understand the big deal with divx? if i have something to watch i buy the dvd then put it in my dvd player.
do people really have THAT many homemade movies..hmm.
People may or may not have obtained the movies the right way. Both Microsoft and Sony are in the business of making money. If there is a market for streaming Divx, then 1 of them will make it happen. Now, Microsoft has to weigh the profits vs. cost of this, and they will make a decision too.
