Sony has officially confirmed that PS3 will receive a separate firmware update to support new 3D Blu-ray discs. Sony says (via Andriasang) that the new firmware update will be released ‘by the end of the year’. Firmware 3.30, which was released in April, added 3D game support to the console.
The vagueness of the update’s release suggests that it’s likely to arrive later than the first 3D Blu-ray movies, which are expected out in the summer starting with a 3D release of animated movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. If you already have yourself a 3D TV, you will have to wait a little longer before you can watch 3D movies.
