PS3 now supports 3D gaming content, even if your TV doesn't

Share

Sony’s PlayStation 3 is now 3D ready. Last night firmware update 3.30 was rolled out to the consoles making stereoscopic gaming possible, in preparation for Sony’s big 3D launch blow-out in June.

As previously reported, four 3D games will launch alongside Sony’s 3D Bravia range. They are Wipeout HD, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, PAIN and Super Stardust HD.

Other additions included in the firmware update are more robust Trophy options, and better Flash support, making for better YouTube streaming on the console.

Of course, despite John Lewis now stocking Samsung’s first 3D TV offering, it’s unlikely you’ll have a 3D TV as yet, and there is still no word on the 3D Blu-ray movie update for the PS3 that Sony promised. As ever, the new update has also brought with it bricking-woes for some unfortunate console owners, but so far these seem to be very isolated cases.
