MLB The Show– IN 3D!!! (pic from CNET)
Natal who? If your a PS3 owner this has got to be awesome news that is sure to make your Labor Day weekend. Sony said today that come sometime next year, the PS3 will be receiving a ? software update: play games in 3D. While it the Sony’s demo used the PS3 Slim, presumably the 3D support would include all PS3 models (they have nearly identical specifications). Better yet, its said that all existing PS3 games will take full use of the PS3’s new 3D playing capabilities. AWESOME!
However, you will need a new 3D-capable TV to play the PS3 games in 3D, but don’t worry: this is all part of Sony’s new mission to bring 3D to the home– with new Bravia LCD TV’s, Vaio PC’s, Blu-ray players, and CyberShot digital cameras all said to be going 3D next year. Yeah, pretty awesome. You’ll also need to wear some 3D glasses, though their design is unknown for now.
Engadget has the full scoop with some video of the PS3 playing Wipeout HD in 3D on a software updated PS3 Slim. But wow, 3D PS3 or an Xbox 360 with Project Natal? The decision just got a whole lot tougher, but which one would you go with?
