Sony PS3 gets 3D BluRay Movies

The most affordable BluRay player/ gaming console is now starting to get Entertainment upgrade as Sony upgrades Play Station 3 firmware that will allow the consoles to play 3D Blu-ray Disc titles.

Of course, you would still need a 3D TV to get immersive 3D content, that doesn’t change. The strategy is mixed – Sony estimates that it could sell  2.5 million 3D TVs this year and would eventually expand the technology from high-end to mid-market sets, making it more affordable.

PS3 firmware version 3.50 is now available for PS3 users and can be installed through the PS3’s “settings” menu.

Talking about numbers, Sony has sold more than 35 million PlayStation 3 consoles worldwide, which now exceeds the number of 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc players sold, by all other vendors all together.

The 3D content won’t be just limited to Movies, videos, but also PlayStation 3, but also in Gaming. Sony had announced 3D gaming back in June, now they would be adding more 3D Game titles.

V3.50 also brings two of other features which includes better integration between games and Facebook. This of course has an advantage — Developers will now be able to create games that have greater interaction with the popular social networking site. For example, users could be able to access Facebook and pull in user names, uploaded photos and friends lists from the site.

The second feature makes it easier for users to report spam/inappropriate messages send to them via the PS3’s PlayStation Network messaging system. The options menu in the friends category will now include an option to report a message.
