3D mode coming to a PS3 near you in 2010

While we were aware that 3D is the next step for gaming, we had no idea that all past, present, and future games can support the “realistic” effect.

Out with the old, in with the new; PS3 boxart evolves

We understand that PS3 boxart isn’t amongst the most interesting topics but since Sony has completely redesigned the PlayStation 3, and its logos, they would have to change the style of the branding on games to suit.

Until now that is.
