PS3 gets 3D Blu-ray support next week

Sony has announced that the next PS3 system update will include support for 3D Blu-rays.

The platform holder’s US blog revealed that firmware update 3.50 will go live on September 21, enabling consumers to watch 3D content on Blu-ray discs such as the upcoming re-release of James Cameron’s Avatar.

Sony previously suggested this feature would be introduced next month, but the update will bring 3D movies to PS3 owners early. A firmware update in June added stereoscopic 3D gaming to the console.

We know that many consumers have purchased 3D TVs already and more of you will be purchasing them as the holidays approach,” said Sony’s VP of network operations for the Americas Eric Lempel.

So we’re excited to offer this firmware update that makes all 38 million PS3s worldwide compatible with Blu-ray 3D discs.”
