Tomorrow Sony Launches First 3D PS3 Titles

Earlier today we reported on PlayStation Network maintenance having been scheduled for a 12-hour block, which made us wonder what Sony was up to. Now we know. Beginning tomorrow your PS3 will support stereoscopic 3D games (expensive 3D television sold separately).

As of tomorrow, the following 3D titles will be available free as listed by SCEA:

  • WipEout HD (full game): Experience the adrenaline rush of navigating the twists and turns of futuristic racetracks at breathtaking speeds like never before.
  • Super Stardust HD (full game): Experience asteroids fly past you as you navigate the deadly battleground — only a battle on a cosmic level will save the indigenous life below from destruction.
  • PAIN The stereoscopic 3D content will include the Downtown area and tutorial along with three modes, including two new modes created specifically with stereoscopic 3D in mind, Alien Toss and Ice Breaker.
  • MotorStorm Pacific Rift (demo): MotorStorm Pacific Rift in stereoscopic 3D puts you in the driver’s seat of a buggy for a one track, single player race around the deadly Kanaloa Bay for a dangerously real battle against ruthless opponents.

Again, to play these titles in 3D, you'll need a 3D television. With that said, sister company Sony Electronics also announced 3D compatible BRAVIA HDTVs currently available for pre-sale that will be available at retail later this month.

Finally, PlayStation Move title The Fight: Lights Out will be available in 3D as well. And finally finally, 3D Blu-ray movie playback is on its way to PS3 via firmware update.

Sony has dished out some pretty heavy announcements over the past few months. Why not save a few for next week?! Not sure what the company may have up its sleeve for E3, but Sony promises more 3D announcements soon, which will probably take place during its press conference on Tuesday.
