253w ago - As a follow-up to our earlier article on news coming out of Sony's Media/Investor Conference is the following:

Sony intends to deliver PS3 3D Gaming in 2010 via Firmware Update.

According to the image from their [Register or Login to view links] [PDF] below, 3D games will be released in line with Sony's 3D strategy and all PlayStation 3 consoles will be upgradeable via PS3 Firmware update to support 3D.

Needless to say, this should come as no surprise as several PS3 3D demos have been available over the last few months, including those from TGS 2009.

Yes, I tend to think that at least 120Hz will be necessary, sadly.

About the idea of a screen filter, it would work exactly as the goggles (not sure how exactly they work by the way ^^) but instead of giving the feeling of the graphics filling the gap between the Tv and you, It would rather extend beyond your tv. We would feel depth from the screen to a point which we would percieve as behind the Tv.

That gets pretty complicated explaining impressions and feelings about 3D on a 2D screen ^^
I think we'll just have to wait and see (and buy a new Tv for most of us )

AFAIK, you need to have a tv that is capable of atleast 100hz to utilise 3d gaming, its to do with the speed of the refresh rate and the goggles
but im happy for someone to correct me if im wrong?

The idea of a filter placed on the screen instead of wearing glasses is interesting, but i think that the 3d image would be lost because i believe the glasses have a fast shutter response that acts with the tv's refresh rate which gives the illusion of 3d
so its kinda like... game-->tv refresh rate 100hz-->air-->shutter glasses-->your eyes
so the 3d image fills the air between the screen and your eyes

but this is all based on MY understanding of how 3d games work so again, correct me if im wrong?

long story short, yeh i think a tv with 120hz would be necessary for 3d games

Hehe ... I am kind of unable to imagine how the 3D gaming stuff works behind TV ...

Anyway, good news The more features, the better.

Guess my old TV won't be able to handle 3D gaming ... it probably explodes after the first minute
