Sounds cool but what happens if you do not have the 2nd gen player???

 

 

The Blu-ray release provides for all three versions of Close Encounters of the Third Kind to be included on one 50GB disc through a process known as “seamless branching,” made possible with the added interactivity of Blu-ray’s software and the robust processing power of the second generation players.

 

This process identifies the differences between each version of the film and segments the footage accordingly. These segments are then encoded and assembled into three unique playlists, thus allowing footage used in all three films to be included on the Blu-ray disc only once. Based on the viewer’s selection of the Original Version, Special Edition or definitive Director’s Cut, each film will be presented seamlessly in its original form by use of its respective playlist.

If you're using a PS3 to watch BDs, like 90% of all blu-ray owners, then you have nothing to worry about.

supposedly the software features that require a profile 1.1 player will be greyed out on the current players, to disable the function and to prevent the player from stalling or rebooting

Seamless branching is already supported in all current BD players. It has nothing to do with the upcoming BD profiles.

 

BD profiles 1.1 & 2.0 only deal with PIP and internet connectivity.
