PS3 3D Firmware Updates to Bring 3D Movie and Photo Support

400°
219w ago - In a recent interview with [Register or Login to view links], SCEE's Mick Hocking confirmed previous reports that 3D Blu-ray movie support will indeed be coming to the PlayStation 3 this year along with support for 3D Photos via two PS3 3D Firmware updates.

The first PlayStation 3 3D Firmware update will arrive in September, while the second doesn't have a date set yet.

To quote: "In September this year, we're launching another Firmware upgrade - and this one is going to upgrade the PS3 to support Blu-ray movies in 3D," said Hocking.

"Again, you won't have to do anything - just connect your PS3. For the film market that's a very significant event. Then later in the year - we're not going to date it yet - the PS3 is going to support 3D photos.

Of course the popularity of 3D isn't just going to come from movies and games. There's 3D cameras on the market, there's 3D camcorders coming on the market in the next 12 months as well, and 3D broadcasts."
 

European PlayStation Store PS3 and PSP Update for July 7, 2010

50°
219w ago - SCEE PlayStation Store Manager Mike Kebby has posted up this weeks European PlayStation Store PS3 and PSP update today, as follows:

The recent monkey loving continues with the release of Monkey Island 2, in all its shiny new glory.

This new edition has a new lick of paint, but there is also a wealth of other goodies including the ability to toggle between the new version and the original version (to see just how shiny and lovely the new version actually is) and a fully fledged developer commentary featuring the original creators Tim Schafer, Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman reminiscing on the making of the game amongst other things.

For fans of the classic series this is a great opportunity to rekindle your love, and for anybody who hasn't played this classic game yet - firstly, what's wrong with you? - secondly, get it now.

There's something called a Resurgence pack for a title you may know called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, I believe it's some kind of shooty game where you hurt people and then cackle manically down your headset, before giving them a teabag to rub in the humiliation. Ah, how I love a good FPS multiplayer session

There's more additional content goodness in the form of Leliana's Song for Dragon Age:...

220w ago - Today Ross McGrath of the SCEE PlayStation Store Team has posted this weeks European PSN update, as follows:

For you handheld heroes we've got Everybody's Tennis for your PSP - cracking good fun just like its golf-based predecessors.

Also for those of you who are lucky enough to already have Toy Story 3 launch in your country, we've got the second round of DLC in the form of Woody's Round up for you to enjoy.

Throw in the latest Buzz! Quiz World pack, two new minis (also for PS3, as usual) and a free level kit for LittleBigPlanet and we're all set.

All you PS3 types have it pretty good this week too - we've got the LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 demo and if you missed Death Track: Resurrection or the criminally under-rated Aqua Panic HD when they released, you can now try these out for free too.

We have enormous amounts of DLC for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 for you budding golfers to browse, the Sacktue of Liberty returns for one week only and if you're not already a Fat Princess convert, we've slashed the price just in time for the launch of the Fat Roles expansion pack.

Yes, we're bringing those old Internet favourites, Pirates and Ninjas (and Giants) to the fray. So now you don't need to debate which is better, just get stuck...
