PS3 to support 3D gaming, Blu-ray
PS3 was mentioned only in passing during Sony's CES keynote, relegated to a quick mention by CEO Sir Howard Stringer that the console will receive a firmware update adding support for 3D games and Blu-ray movies.
Not much in the way of details, but we know that the update will allow you to play 3D games and watch 3D movies through your PS3. Naturally, you need to use special glasses which will be made available for purchase.
Along with the 3D update, Sony reconfirmed plans to expand PlayStation Network beyond PS3 and PSP. Bravia televisions and Vaio laptops will be integrated with PSN, allowing you to access content from either using your PSN ID.
No mention of specific dates for the release of the 3D firmware for PS3 or the PSN update were provided.
