Sony sees some light....

As I have blogged about in the past, I think Image Constraint Token is a horrible idea. Sony it seems, has decided that I'm right, and they have chosen to not enable ICT on their initial run of Blu-Ray discs, and those into the future (which really doesn't mean a lot; if someone cracks the anti-piracy measures fairly quickly, then they'll enable it right away).

Also from the Sound and Vision article, Sony has decided to put test patterns as hidden "Easter eggs" on the first BR discs. To access, push 7669 on your remote's numeric pad while viewing the menu.

Blu-Ray hits 5/23/06. HD-DVD hardware is supposed to be released later this month, with discs hopefully to shortly follow.
