It only took about 2 years but, the PS3 and the XBOX officially support the DivX codec now
By supporting the DivX codec, Sony hopes to add to the media center qualities of the PS3. Now, users will be able to play HD content on their PS3 without having to invest a large sum of money on a Blu-ray burner.

DivX has the advantage of being a cheap, and largely open, standard. DivX and XviD are one of the most widely used video formats on the Internet, predominantly by pirates who swap files on torrent sites.
