CVG has learned that several PlayStation 3 titles will be getting free patches to upgrade them to 3D. The 3D patch launches this summer – rumored for a June release, and four games will be update to support 3D from launch. The four titles, WipEout HD, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, SuperStardust HD and PAIN, will also come free with Sony’s 3D Bravia televisions.
Owners of the 2D versions will be able to “upgrade” to 3D for free by downloading a patch from the PlayStation Network. It’s been reported that any games receiving retrospective 3D adaptations will likely see resolution and textures downgrades in order to maintain a smooth framerate, which is fair enough really.
