Sony To Roll Out 3D Firmware For PS3 Console

The popular PlayStation 3 gaming console will receive an update that will allow it to play 3D content and games ahead of the normally busy holiday season.

Sony has announced that its engineering team has finished work on 3D upgrade for its PS3, which will be released by the end of October.

Sony’s chief executive officer Howard Stringer made the announcement in his keynote speech ahead of the IFA trade show, to be held between September 3 and 8 in Berlin, Germany.

The upgrade is a part of a long awaited firmware update for the gaming console enabling users to play Blu-ray movies in 3D.

The system will be able to play movies like James Cameron's worldwide blockbuster “Avatar", "The Green Hornet" and the next "Spider-Man" and many others.

Stringer also hinted at a device as part of Google's TV project but he did not reveal particular dates and deadline for any of the upcoming service or device.
