As expected, Sony have announced at the IFA Consumer Electronics show in Berlin that stereoscopic 3D will be coming to the PlayStation 3 in 2010.
This kind of 3D doesn’t need a special TV; rather, you just need a set of stereoscopic glasses, the likes of which you’ve probably already used once or twice at the movies in recent years. Or even at a games show, to play some WipeOut.
The update will come via a firmware update sometime next year, and will work for, apparently, “all” existing games. Apparently. Hey, it’s their claim, not ours.
Sounds gimmicky, I know, but combine this with the PS3’s motion controller and—dorky appearance aside—it could be something special.
