Sony PS3 3D Update Coming June 10 (Japan only)

Sony PS3 3D Update Coming June 10

Ready, set, Sony's 3D firmware update for the PlayStation 3 will go live in Japan next Monday, June 10, says Sony, with U.S. and other markets expected to follow shortly.
Sony will kick things off in the Land of the Rising Sun by adding 3D support to three downloadable games, including racer Wipeout HD, asteroid zapper Star Strike HD, and human-chucking catharsis engine Mr. Pain (the latter two are Japan-only titles at this time).
Not a big deal for me, since it will be at least a year before I get a 3D TV.

Sony 60EX645 | Sonos S5 | PS3 | Wii | Apple TV2 | Xbox 360 | 52W3000 | Yamaha RX-V620 | Mirage Omnisat 6

In most press releases I've read about the PS3's 3D capability, they've all been very carefully worded to indicate that it's compatible with Sony Bravia 3DTVs. Now I'm not sure if this is just a Sony marketing ploy to get people to buy Bravia TVs, or if in fact it's ONLY compatible with Bravia 3D sets.

Does anyone know for sure?

And just to clarify, I believe this is a games-only 3D update; Blu-Ray 3D compatibility is still forthcoming.

From what I understand all 3D Blu-ray players will work with all 3D Sets.

The only thing that is not inoperable are the glasses so you must have Sony glasses with a Sony 3D set, samsung glasses with a samsung 3D set and so on.

The output format of the PS3's 3D still hasn't been made public. It is unsure if it will output the checkerboard format required by 3D ready DLP sets made my Samsung and Mitsubishi.

I thought you needed HDMI 1.4 for 3D?

Sony 75" X940D, 7.1 Klipsch, Onkyo TX-NR656, Xbox One/360, Nvidia Shield Alienware Alpha, Arris Gateway, 42" Samsung

No 3D will work just fine with HDMI 1.3 or what they are now calling "High speed HDMI"
