161w ago - Yesterday OPM confirmed that the much-anticipated 3D PS3 Firmware update is set for a June 2010 release, and today Sony has listed the initial 3D PlayStation 3 games along with confirming free 3D update patches will be available from PSN.
To quote via ElectronicTheatre.co.uk: "3D gaming is about to get real. To enable true 3D gameplay on the new BRAVIA 3D TVs, we are releasing a free of charge 3D firmware upgrade for the PlayStation 3.
At the same time, a number of exciting new 3D games will be released including WipEout HD, MotorStorm Pacific Rift, SuperStardust HD and PAIN.
And if you already own these games, you'll be able to upgrade to the 3D version absolutely free, simply by downloading a patch from the PlayStation Network."

Early adopters USUALLY get screwed really hard so stay away for a while. Don't pay for something that might not even have all the features from the start. Remember almost any device in the past 10 years and youll know what I mean. Right now it comes to mind those huge HDTV sets that only had component in, no hdmi no nothing, and before those they werent even HD just the big size screen dang.
Well the PS3 needs to pass a proper "3d" signal to the TV, which is either side by side or top and bottom (one half for each eye which is the easiest, though you loose resolution). There is also the checkerboard format, interleaved format, and quite a few others. The attached image that I found may help explain it better.
But, once the TV gets the signal, it will be able to interpret it properly, and signal the glasses for what image goes to which eye.
Luckily for all of us, its not anaglyphic - hate those red/blue glasses, terrible they are. Depending on the technology, either by using polarized lenses, or shutter based glasses it will be accomplished (the 3d) - really depends on the TV manufacturer.
