205w ago - SCEE's Social Media Manager Jem Alexander has confirmed today on the European PlayStation Blog, as part of Sony's CES announcement, that 3D games and movies are coming to the PS3 in 2010.
To quote: Among all the technology announcements you would come to expect from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (such as new 3D Bravia TVs coming this Summer), Kaz Hirai announced that the PS3 will be fully 3D compatible this year.
There will be two firmware updates at some point in 2010 – the first will add 3D Stereoscopic Gaming functionality to the PS3 and the second will add 3D Stereoscopic Movie functionality. We'll be announcing more details regarding 3D Gaming as we get further into 2010 and, as usual, you'll see a lot of this here on the PlayStation.Blog.
Kaz also revealed that 2009 housed the most successful holiday season in the history of the PlayStation 3, with over 3.8 million units selling worldwide over the last 5 weeks of the year. European movie fans will also be glad to hear that the Video Download Service will be expanded to more territories throughout the year, too.
Finally, the PlayStation Network has been adopted as the central online service for many Sony products, which means you will eventually be using the same login on your PlayStation 3 as your Bravia TV, VAIO laptop or other Blu-ray player.
What does this mean? We'll have more details in the future, but one cool benefit we can highlight is using the same virtual wallet across all of our services, on all of our platforms.
This is just the start of what should be another great year for PlayStation – we've got lots more stuff to announce throughout 2010, so keep checking the PlayStation.Blog regularly.

In my opinion I think sony will get a 3-D standard in place and run with it.
They will come out with more 3d games and movies this year. They may even implement it into television. The possibilities are endless where they can go. LCD and now the new LED tech is here. We will see even more things as time goes on I'm sure.
Just watch, listen and wait. Eventually it may be a optional where you can experience nearly everything in 3d or 2d viewing. It will be like you are there. Like the virtual reality that has been talked about for years. 3D is nothing new but now we have new technology to work with and I bet we will start seeing some fascinating stuff come from Sony.
