Apparently they’re getting ready for some sort of a Windows 8 release huh? Microsoft’s Download Center now has PlayReady PC Runtime available to download specifically for Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
Microsoft PlayReady technology is optimized for the mobile industry to support the growth of online content services, and includes features designed to make it easier than ever for consumers to enjoy mobile digital entertainment. This runtime allows PC based applications to access PlayReady content using the PlayReady PC Runtime API.
