PS Brings 3D Movies to Life

  • PS3 gets 3D software update
  • Games also becoming available in 3D
  • Full lens-to-lounge 3D experience

Sony Computer Entertainment Australia has further expanded its 3D offering by enabling 3D Blu-ray movie playback into homes across the country on the PS3.

The latest global system software update (version 3.50) will provide all existing PS3s with the option to enjoy movies in HD 3D in the heart of the living room. Sony recently announced that some of the company’s games titles will be available to consumers this year in stereoscopic 3D, including Gran Turismo 5.

Popular franchises from the publishing community will also make their way into homes in stereoscopic 3D on PS3 in the near future, with titles such as KillZone 3, Crysis 2 from Electronic Arts Inc., Mortal Kombat from Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, Shaun White Skateboarding and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier from Ubisoft, as well as Tron: Evolution The Game from Disney.

Sony says it can deliver a full “lens to lounge room” 3D experience from content capture, content creation such as films to games, to device delivery that provides the ultimate 3D enjoyment in the home.

“The 3D entertainment revolution has been highly talked about in 2010,” said Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia. “With PlayStation 3 consoles now offering 3D Blu-ray movie play back as well as stereoscopic 3D game capability, and even more 3D entertainment content in the pipeline, attached to a BRAVIA 3D TV we can provide Australians with the most comprehensive 3D viewing experience possible,”
