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

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."
