252w 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.

Well, it will be necessary that some kind of device (like goggles or a special filter on the screen) is between the user and the screen. As we have seen with Wipeout in 3D at TGS, it will probably be some kind of "dual-screen-on-a-single-screen" display, using goggles to put the two images back together, thus giving the feeling of depth.

I don't know if a 120 or 240 Hz will be necessary, but I doubt that Sony would implement a feature most of its user can't use.

Found this old(ish) news page saying that the "...PS3 would be fully compatible with a range of 3D TVs..."

Let's just hope it's also compatible with the cheap 3D glasses you can get, like with the 3D G-force game.

Just when I though I needed another TV hehehe, never mind, it's a funny mistake

I was thinking that the "slide"? says "All PS3 units will be firmware upgradeable to 3D" ... but what about the TV's, are prepared to support this technology? or will we be forced to buy another one? because if so, it would really piss me off 'cause I just buy a new HD TV and I'm no willing to get a new one unitll that one breaks or something .

Anyway, I just hope that "firmware upgradeable" apply to TV's as well.
