PS3 Blu-ray 3D Update In October

Good news for those of you with a 3D TV/PS3 combo– Sony has confirmed that it will update the PS3’s firmware to support 3D Blu-ray movies in October.

Sony’s Howard Stringer broke the news – although he didn’t comment on why the update had been pushed back, as it was meant to go live this month.

Currently there isn’t a huge choice of 3D Blu-ray titles available, but Michael Jackson’s This Is It, Alice in Wonderland, Avatar, Spider-man 3 and Green Hornet are all on the way.

  1. Yet again the PS3 proves itself as THE media device for moviephiles

  2. screw 3d sort out the bloody browser

  3. Ah thanks for this guys, I was actually searching the web yesterday for when we were going to get this. I spotted a Samsung 40inch LED 3DTV in Comet over the weekend. It looked quality and only £800. Pretty good deal I think.

    • That is a good deal. I think in 6 months or so, 3D is gonna be as synonymous with new TVs as HD is now.

      • I think you are right, I will probably grab one when they are slightly cheaper than now, just in time for KZ3 :)

  4. Boo-yeah, told you September a couple of months back… oh I’m so awesome.
    Although I’m not really fussed now since I brought a 3DBDP, plays all BD’s a hell of a lot quieter than the PS3, plus it’s iPlayer is of much better quality, a dedicated app.

  5. Oh and Mr. Lee, it’s Spider-man 3D (a.k.a. 4) not the 3rd.
    I need more in my collection, I only have Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and Coraline.
    All the other exclusive 3DBD’s are quite expensive on that ebay.

    • if you can afford a 3d tv, ps3, and 3d blu ray player, i am sure the prices on ebay are not outside of your grasp
