3D games and movies coming to a PS3 near you

Submitted by on Thursday, 7 January 20109 Comments

ps3 psn 3D games and movies coming to a PS3 near youTechnology is always changing and we’re continually looking for the next big thing in the industry. That next big thing appears to be 3D.

Announced at the 2010 CES, Kaz Hirai revealed during the Sony Press Conference that the PS3 would become 3D compatible this year.

At some point in 2010 there will be two firmware updates that will give the PS3 the power of stereoscopic 3D. Games will be the first to receive the update with movies following behind shortly.

With many films already making the jump to 3D, it’s becoming apparent that this technology is becoming more mainstream and less of a gimmick.  You’ll still be required to wear goofy looking glasses and have a 3D capable TV as well.

Currently there is only one game that has been released in 3D but more are on the way. IGN demoed 3D versions of Avatar, Super Stardust HD, and even Gran Turismo 5.

Will it be enough to make 3D a permanent feature or will it forever remain as a gimmick? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
