Sony has said that the firmware update for the PS3 to support Blu-ray 3D playback will be coming in September.
Not only that, more firmware update in the future will allow the viewing of 3D photos, taken with Sony’s upcoming 3D Cybershot digital cameras.
The Blu-ray 3D capability, once added via firmware, will enable to the PS3 to connect to the 2010 range of 3D TVs, and to play any Blu-ray movie with the “Blu-ray 3D” logo. Currently, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs represents the only major studio title available in Blu-ray 3D for general sale.
The PS3 is already capable of playing 3D games thanks to a firmware update in April, and several 3D enabled games, such as Wipeout HD and Pain, are already available. The upcoming Killzone 3, Motorstorm Apocalypse and Gran Turismo 5 will also feature 3D modes.
