The Sony press conference at E3 is going on at the moment (or wrapping up; it's hard to keep track!) and the information is starting to dribble in. We'll have more comprehensive information soon once Dan and Steve are back, but in the meantime if you can't wait, here's the official press release. It's clear that Sony are betting heavily on the current consumer interest in 3D technologies as their Big Deal for the show appears to be stereoscopic 3D:
SCEE today announced that some of the companyís biggest titles will be available to consumers this year in stereoscopic 3D, including MotorStormģ: Apocalypse, Killzoneģ3, The Sly Raccoon Collection and Gran Turismoģ5. Popular franchises from the publishing community will also make their way into consumer homes in stereoscopic 3D on PlayStation 3, such as Crysis 2 from Electronic Arts, Mortal Kombat 9 from Warner Brothers, Ubisoftís Shaun White Skateboarding and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, as well as Tron 2: Evolution The Game from Disney. Unlike any other console on the market today, all 35.7 million PS3 units globally are capable of playing stereoscopic 3D games as a result of a recent firmware update. Four PS3 titles offering stereoscopic gaming experiences are currently available for download from the PlayStation Network including PAIN, MotorStormģ Pacific Rift, Super Stardustô HD and WipEoutģ HD. The PS3 system will make stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray Disc movie support available later this year.
The Australian release date for the PlayStation Move has also been confirmed as September 16th.

Most playstation 3 games don't run at 1080p already because the graphics chip doesn't have the grunt. The addition of 3D will effectively double the resolution.

So basically you will only see games in 3D that are PSN games, ie games like wipeout HD that already run at a super smooth frame rate at 1080p.

They are gonna need more grunt before they bring 3D gaming to the mainstream.

Not sure what the new crop of games are getting released in, but most of the big budget games I have played run at a max of 720p.

I would be impressed if they pulled off a game like killzone 3 or GT5 in 3D at a reasonable resolution. In fact, I would be impressed if they got 1080p not in 3D. I don't actually know the specs for GT5 or killzone 3 so they could prove me wrong.

Yeah, I noticed that most games are 720. I saw some option to upscale games to your res would that put it to 1080p? (PS3 noob here)

All the new 3D sets can process full HD 3D- its only the PS3 and live tv(for now) that don't do full HD 3D... All 3D bluray players(bar PS3) and down loadable 3d content played via USB can be at 1080p...!


As for 3D content it can all be played back in 2d so ppl with non 3D sets aren't really that disadvantaged its just not as cool/good! its kinda like HD/SD v Full HD... Its the new 'premium' to the AV market and at the rate its going its most certainly here to stay.........

not if the consumers dont get behind it, i mean its cool, but spending 3k + on a new tv just to use it ....

They are getting behind it, that's why it's succeeding... For the most part the difference in price is marginal:. Eg.. Panasonic THP50U20( 2D panasonic neo plasma) rrp $2499... Panasonic THP50VT25 $2799 and the samsung ps50c7000 is $2499 + ATM u score 4 pairs of glasses a 3d movie and the 3d player... It's not as expencive as everyone expected it to be..
