ARccOS Compatibility

*SCEA has discovered that certain DVDs utilizing the ARccOS* copy-protection system may have difficulty being played on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. A software fix for this has been created and can be easily downloaded and installed utilizing the System Update function found through the PS3™ system's Xross Media Bar (XMB™). Users are recommended to update their PS3™ system to system software version 1.10 available for download on November 17. Also, regular update of PS3™ system's operating system using the System Update is recommended for future additional functionality. The situation with the ARccOS copy-protection system occurs only with DVDs and does not affect the playback of Blu-ray Discs.

*ARccOS is a copy-protection system developed by Sony used on some DVDs. For further inquiry on this system, please contact Sony Corp.
