Last week reports surfaced that the upcoming PS3 3D Firmware update would arrive in June, and today retailer Best Buy has let slip the date of July.
Sony has previously confirmed that a simple PS3 Firmware update is all that is required to make the PlayStation 3 system compatible with 3D gaming.
Unfortunately, no specific timeframe was ever given for the anticipated patch until today.
To quote: "On a 3D FAQ page, Best Buy has given the first solid timeframe for the PS3 3D patch.
Clicking on the first tab of http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Electronics+Promotions/3D+TV+Explained/pcmcat204300050000.c?id=pcmcat204300050000 will reveal the following tidbit:
To watch 3D Blu-ray Discs, you'll need to add a 3D-ready Blu-ray player (or update your PS3 with the appropriate firmware when it becomes available in July).
Yup, that's right. Best Buy seems to have let the cat slip a bit early; either mistakenly or intentionally."
