Is Sony EVER going to support Mp3 in their DVD Players?

I can't believe that Sony has not even one DVD player that will support (play) Mp3's!

Anyone know why or if they are planning to? Details?

I imagine the main reason that Sony dosent support MP3z is due to the fact they own Sony Music. They dont want to rip off thier own artists I guess.

It sorta makes sense though

I have a sony dvd player and it dosent even play cd-r's but thats what my cd player is for

Yet still another reason to avoid Sony.

The biggest reason has to be Sony's support of Minidisc. They are still trying to push MD as a recordable/digital music medium.

When (if) they finally do away with MD we will probably see some DVD players from them that do MP3s, but until then look elsewhere if MP3 listning is a big thing for you.
