PS3 going 3D
Wednesday 31st March, 2010

Sony have announced that they will be launching firmware updates for the Playstation 3 which will convert it into 3D games console.

The Playstation 3 will also be able to play 3D Blu-ray discs when the 3D firmware updates have been installed. There will be two updates which will be available on the Sony Playstation Network in June. The dual purpose of the PS3 gives Sony hope that the 3D format will do well for Sony, more so with the Sony Bravia 3D TV range that is due to be launched in June. The first firmware update will add 3D Stereoscopic Gaming functionality to the PS3 and the second update will add 3D Stereoscopic Movie functionality.

The firmware updates will be a welcome addition to the PS3 and the gaming community as it makes the PS3 fully 3D-ready. Ubisoft's Avatar is the only game at present in 3D mode, and the new Batman: Arkham Asylum game will have a limited selection of 3D levels to complete.

The has stated that there were over 3.8 million PS3's sold in the last few weeks of 2009 worldwide, which simply proves its continued success and with the addition of 3D gaming, this success will inevitably keep growing. There have also been many developers who have, and continue, to show enthusiasm in working with Sony Entertainment Studios in making 3D games for the PS3.
