Sony confirms 3D launch games
Early adopters will be getting some nice goodies to go with their shiny new TV – if you have a PS3 that is.
The news pretty much confirms the rumours that had been flying about of the PS3′s 3D firmware update taking place in June.
If you buy a brand new 3D TV Sony will be giving you free 3D Blu-ray movies and 3D PS3 games. The games will be stereoscopic 3D and released via the PlayStation Network.
The list is as follows;
- Wipeout HD: full 3D game (not including WipEout HD Fury)
- PAIN: 3 x 3D episodes + 1 x 2D tutorial
- Super Stardust HD: full 3D game (not including DLC)
- MotorStorm Pacific Rift: single level 3D demo
So a mixture of demos and full games – but perfect for showing off your new telly. The free Blu-ray movies are as follows;
- Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
- Deep Sea
We should stress that if you are planning on buying one of Sony’s 3D TVs, please check which TVs have these free bundles – as it will only come with certain sets.
All this new technology won’t be cheap though. A quick scout around the UK Sony online shop uncovers prices ranging from £2500 up to £3500.
We’ve smashed open the Team Attitude vault to see how much saving we have to do – only £2495 left to go!
