Microsoft is making Divx a sad panda

Microsoft has decided to go with some third-party vendors in an effort to support the latest versions of the Divx 7 standard that is available now.  Sony's PS3 is the only console currently on the market with first-party support of the Divx codec's.  With over 100 million certified Divx devices out in the wild Divx holds a large sway in the video codec market.  Hopefully Microsoft will get a compatible codec on the Xbox 360 sooner rather than later to appease all the fans of uPNP sharing that has become popular in the past year or two.  (Thanks to TechRadar for the story).
