PS3 3D Blu-ray support delayed, but 3D gaming still on the way

Share

Sony has confirmed that the 3D firmware update that would allow PS3 users to watch 3D Blu-ray movies will be delayed past its expected June launch.

Instead, the June launch will now let PS3 owners indulge in some 3D gaming, with four titles set for release. They are Wipeout HD, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, PAIN and Super Stardust HD.

Sony assure that a PS3 firmware update with 3D Blu-ray compatibility will be on the cards eventually. However, with Sony also announcing the release of their first 3D Blu-ray title (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs), consumers who were looking to nab one of Sony’s 3D TVs may now feel more inclined to buy a new 3D Blu-ray player to go along with it in the interim.

Which, we imagine, was Sony’s plan all along.
