Playstation 3 Blu Ray 3D support

Sep 20, 2010

Sony is releasing a long awaited firmware update for Playstation 3 allowing playback of the Blu Ray 3D media. Firmware version is marked as 3.50, and will be available on September 21. While resolution of stereoscopic games is restricted to 720p, Blue ray 3d movies will be played at full 1080p HD 3D resolution. Isn’t that awesome? Unlike games, movies are requiring only 24 fps, which greatly reduces bitrates and allows Playstation to push the stereoscopic picture through the bottleneck of the HDMI 1.3 cable.

Engadget has a video of a working Playstation running Blu Ray 3D.
