Sony PS3 3D update hitting before June

We bought you news earlier in the year that Sony was adding 3D support to its PS3 console in the Summer and now it seems that Sony have eeked out a little more information on the announcement in combination with when the sets would be available in the UK.

While a firm date has yet to be officially set, buried with in an announcement that it will be selling its newly announced 3D TVs in June  was that owners of the shiny new televisions will be getting the chance to play 3D games as well.

"With the launch of Sony 3D TVs, PS3 users are in for a treat as 3D stereoscopic gaming really comes of age," claims the company before going on to say that "Timed to complement the launch of the HX800, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe will release four 3D stereoscopic PS 3 game experiences through the PlayStation Network, available as a free collection to purchasers of BRAVIA 3D TVs." 

Further small print reads:

"PS3 owners will be able to upgrade their PS3s to be 3D game compatible with a firmware upgrade (in countries where PSN is available) prior to the Sony 3D TVs becoming available."

The promotional 3D stereoscopic game experiences, which unfortunately will be only intitially available to Bravia 3D TV customers rather than anyone include WipEout HD and Motorstorm Pacific Rift, PAIN, and Super Stardust HD.

Sony has also confirmed that the PS3 will be getting a 3D Blu-ray update as well, something that we already believed to be happening, with a further firmware upgrade sometime later in the year.

Looks like when the company told us Summer, it was going to be early Summer rather than more Autumn.

We will keep you posted.
