Sony PlayStation 3 Officially Supports Blu-ray 3D Playback

When it first came out, Sony's PlayStation 3 game console was the easiest way to have a Blu-ray disc (BD) player, because the console uses BD as its primary media. With a new firmware update from Sony, users can add Blu-ray 3D support. It is especially interesting because not every older standalone Blu-ray player supports the latest 3D format. Firmware update 3.50 applies to all versions of the PlayStation 3 (that's Slim and the original design). The move to let the PS3 have Blu-ray 3D support was backed by an announcement that upcoming game titles on the PS3, such as Gran Turismo 5 and Killzone 3 will come in stereoscopic 3D.

Read an article on Joystiq that says that with 1080P 3D the audio output is limited to DTS or DD, no lossless formats. Don't know if its a hardware limitation (HDMI 1.3 vs 1.4) or what, but that is a little bit of a bummer, since the difference between them is actually quite noticeable.

that's disappointing. They make it sound like it's just a FW thing and not an actual hardware limitation. It will be interesting to see what develops from this....

Nevermind me going 3D with the PS3 then, that's way to much for some ugly ass glasses that are supposed make things pop out at me.
My 50in samsung came with a free 3d bluray player and a set of glasses.;)
