Well, to be fair, PS3 added the ability to decode DTS-MA with a free FW upgrade. It's not "totally" new but it's a distinct functionality that wasn't there before the FW upgrade.

Hey, it was easier to provide links than to try to summarize, so give me SOME credit for being lazy.

Thanks guys, very informative.

Been doing some more reading and it looks like the 2809 is going to have some the new features on it, most notably the volume EQ and DynamicEQ, combined with what the gaming consoles are doing, charging for the update isn't looking so good to me now\:\(, but I will still get it.

Yeah one of the biggest features that will be added to the new xbox experience is the ability to stream over 10,000 instant movies from your netflix account right to your 360 without any extra hardware.

The xbox also updated there media sharing abilities to support several formats that it previously did not support such as mpg, avi, ext. I think it only use to accept *.wmv files.

Another cool xbox 360 update was when they added the MSN messenger to the dashboard.

but yeah... the whole list is in the links from CV

Don't get me wrong- I am glad thatn't free and it IS free for the more expensive receivers sucks... I think an MSRP $1599 receiver is dang expensive and should be elegible for free feature updates.

I just downloaded software from PlayOn that does this same thing on the PS3 (and Xbox 360). It not only links to Netflix, it also links to YouTube, ESPN, CNN, Hulu, and others. It is the coolest software upgrade I've added to my PS3 in some time. If you haven't heard of Hulu, check it out as it's a very cool service for legal downloads of hundreds of network and cable shows.

It's free for 30 or 45 days and a lot of fun. If nothing else, it gives you one more place to burn time watching random YouTube videos. ;\)

The old SNL clips on Hulu are also a great time filler.
