PS3 3D Blu-ray firmware update to arrive in Sept.

PS3 owners and movie buffs should be happy today to hear that in September, a firmware update will arrive giving users the ability to watch 3D Blu-ray movies on the popular console. The update will allow full 1080p 3D video to be played via Blu-ray disc over HDMI, in conjunction with compatible 3D HDTVs and glasses. It comes on the heels of 3D support for games, which became available in an update this June.

The news was announced last week at a press event in London by senior director of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Mick Hocking. Hocking also said that future 3D updates would give the console 3D YouTube and 3D Photo support, which should be a big plus as more 3D digital cameras and YouTube videos arrive. There’s no word yet on whether 3D movies would be delivered via download on the PSN, but that would be an easy way to bring more users to the medium.

The 3D Blu-ray Firmware Update arrives this September. Shop for discounted Sony 3D HDTVs.
