PlayStation 3 Goes 3D Tomorrow, Four Games At Launch

Some of the biggest PlayStation 3 games will be available to play in 3D this year. The first 3D games hit as early as tomorrow.

At an event in Los Angeles, Sony PlayStation boss Jack Tretton is just rattling off games coming in 3D this year for the PS3. These games will be rendered in stereoscopic 3D and require a 3D TV and glasses in order to experience their popping effects.

Available as early as tomorrow in 3D for your PS3 will be Super Stardust HD and WipEout HD, Pain and the demo version of MotorStorm Pacific Rift. (Kotaku previously reported that Super Stardust and WipEout's 3D versions will be available as free updates for people who already own the games; Pain 3D, however, would cost ¥300 ($3.95) in Japan — no word on how the pricing will work in North America yet.)

Tretton is also showing Gran Turismo 5 and MLB The Show 10 in 3D as well. No release dates on those yet.

The company announced their first 3D motion-controlled game as well. The already-revealed but oft-renamed The Fight: Lights Out will be playable in 3D when it is launched.

Sony also said that starting tomorrow anyone who buys a Sony Bravia 3D TV will get four 3D PS3 games and demos.

For more information about the Sony games going 3D, check out the official PlayStation 3 blog post about tomorrow's releases and Bravia offer.

This post will be updated as the event continues.


    Still don't get how this is supposed to work. Proper 3D devices require a HDMI 1.4 connection to work correctly. The PS3 only has a 1.3 version connection (heck the older model PS3 doesnt even have the full 1.3 standard).

    Either way... watch this fizzle. There just aren't enough people out there with 3D TV's.

      Let alone people with 3D TV's _and_ a PS3.

        I agree. This is pretty new stuff here and if they're already planning to release 3D software, Sony aren't going to see results for awhile yet. Atleast, they won't see my money, I won't be having a 3D TV for awhile yet.

      People aren't going to adopt technology if no one is supporting it.

    You don't need HDMI 1.4 to do 3D, all 1.4 does is make a standard for how to send the images.

    ATM TV's do it a whole bunch of ways.

    I thought that the PS3 was going to be HDMI 1.4 after the upgrade, or am I wrong on that one?

    I don't know that this will fizzle, the retailers are pushing 3D TVs pretty hard, it takes a complete ecosystem to make a new technology get taken up. We have 3D Blurays coming out now, the PS3 going 3D is another piece of the ecosystem, it all leads to giving more reasons to make the jump to 3D.

    Until they have 3D without glasses (which I believe is in development) I'm not going anywhere near this technology.
    Its always a bad idea to buy first generation.

      I'm with this guy..
