Sony Investigating PS3 3D Capabilities

Sony has said that existing PS3 titles could be made playable in 3D form through the release of a system firmware update.

The platform holder, which last week announced plans to make new PS3 games, laptops and Blu-ray players compatible with a new range of 3D Bravia TVs, has said that it’s “conducting a technological investigation” as to the possibility of making existing PS3 software backwards compatibility with the technology.

However, the company also noted that there’s “no plan for the market launch of this at this time,” according to Engadget.

Ubisoft’s upcoming Avatar: The Game (pictured) and a couple of Sony racing titles – the company recently demoed WipeOut HD working with 3D software and glasses – are definitely set to benefit from some form of 3D presentation, the site reports.
