Sony demoed PS3 Blu-ray playback for the first time yesterday, treating reporters to a sneak peek of how most consumers will likely first experience Blu-ray in action.
Sony had previously announced that Blu-ray playback would be handled through a PSX/PSP-style interface, and indeed as the photos above illustrate, playback functionality will be nearly identical to standard DVD playback on the PlayStation 2.
The PlayStation 3 playback was demoed alongside several other Blu-ray players and recorders from Sony, Matsushita, Hitachi and Pioneer at yesterday's Blu-ray press conference in Japan.
