PS3 3D firmware update launching in the summer

PS3 gamers can look forward to tucking into some 3D gaming as Sony confirmed that a 3D-supporting firmware update is on the way for the seventh gen console.


Set to coincide with the launch of Sony’s range of Bravia 3D TVs fresh off the CES conveyer belt,  John Koller, director of hardware marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America, confirmed that PS3 3D gaming would become a reality saying, "3D is a major part of our initiatives in 2010 and we’re currently developing 3D stereoscopic games to come in conjunction with the launch of Sony’s 3D compatible BRAVIA LCD TV in summer 2010."


On the arrival of 3D on the PS3 Koller said,  "All PS3 units that exist in homes and markets will be able to play 3D stereoscopic games as well as 3D BD movies through separate firmware upgrades."


Whether you’ll be able to play any games when the 3D firmware update is available is another issue however, as Koller added, "We’ll be announcing actual game titles separately later."


That to us suggests you could be sitting with a 3D-enabled PS3 for a few months yet before you can actually indulge in some stereoscoping gaming.
