Sony is getting set to push 3D gaming to PlayStation 3 gamers this year. Yesterday, the company’s plans became clearer with the announcement that three popular PSN downloadable titles will be receiving updates that allow them to be played in 3D.

Sony Japan revealed that Wipeout HD, Star Strike HD, and Pain will get updates on June 10th that allow the games to be played in 3D. While the 3D updates for Wipeout and Star Strike will be free for owners, Pain users will have to pay a one-time 300 yen (approximately $3.30 USD) surcharge to download the new 3D functionality.

Sony has also announced a Bravia TV promotion in Japan where consumers who buy a new 3D compatible set will received a code that gives them Wipeout HD, Star Strike HD, and Pain for free, as well as an exclusive 3D Motorstorm 2 demo.
