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.
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.
