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.
