Sony is prepping up to bring 3D-stereoscopic gaming for PlayStation 3 this summer. The company has confirmed that PlayStation 3 will get stereoscopic 3D enabling firmware update later this summer, reported Pocket-lint. Apart from that, Sony also spoke about an app store for PS3 and the console's capacity to hold 1TB storage.
Sony has been one of the TV makers who're pushing for 3D Display technology. With Sony BRAVIA 3D TVs shipping this summer, the company will also push a 3D enabling PlayStation 3 update to play 3D-stereoscopic games and watch 3D Blu-ray movies.
John Koller, director of hardware marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America, said, The amazing thing about the PS3's technology is that 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 - something that other platforms are unable to do. The game titles would be announced later obviously. Also, the much anticipated Motion Control technology is due this year.
Koller also boasts that PlayStation 3 Slim's design was capable of holding up to 1TB of storage since now it was made more easily accessible for the users.
Maybe this is Sony's way to compete with Microsoft's Project Natal gaming which is expect by the end of this year. This year-end would bring some innovative technologies Project Natal vs Sony's 3D-stereoscopic gaming with Motion Control. Not to forget, the 3D Bravia TV sets would seriously burn a hole in the pocket.
