To quote: Greetings, fellow TETRIS enthusiasts! I'm here to deliver some very cool news about our TETRIS game on PlayStation Network.
Ever dreamed of being immersed in a multi-dimensional rain of falling Tetriminos? I know I have. Well, thanks to the wonders of 3D Television (and the EA Production Team); we can all finally live the fantasy.
We just launched one of our most impressive free TETRIS updates ever. TETRIS on PSN will finally be playable in 3D. Yes, you read that right - 3D!
To experience this new option, all you have to do is launch TETRIS on your PS3 and accept the update. That's it! It's available in North America and Europe and is only 75MB.
In addition to TETRIS on PSN boasting 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080p HD graphics and six different play modes - you will now be able to play TETRIS on your snazzy 3D monitor.
We're really excited about this update and can't wait to compete in PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes, with Tetriminos in our faces!

To quote: We are launching Tetris on PlayStation Network and it'll be available to download from the PSN store in very early next year.
This version of Tetris boasts 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080P HD graphics, plus six online and local multiplayer modes.
Of course, you can play Marathon mode by yourself in the boldest and brightest graphics ever, but what we're really excited about are three new PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes that will make this a must-have.
I can't go into much detail, but these new online, real-time multiplayer modes will be more fun and competitive than anything you've seen before.
A couple of weeks ago Alexi Pajitnov, the original creator of Tetris, got to try out this new PS3 version and absolutely loved it. And since we know how excited you are, we have a trailer ready to showcase just how awesome this gets.
Check it out above! This is going to be the definitive Tetris experience.
