Sony today casually mentioned at E3 something that all those early adopters of 3D TVs might want to take note of: more than 10 PS3 titles will ship this year with support of 3D technology, including Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
During its E3 press conference, Sony said some its biggest titles of the year — both first-party and third-party — will be available in stereoscopic 3D. The first-party titles to feature 3D will be MLB 10 The Show, MotorStorm: Apocalypse and The Sly Collection, with the heavy-hitters being Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo 5. As if fans needed one more thing to tip the realism scales in Gran Turismo 5’s favor….
Other third-party PS3 publishers will support stereoscopic 3D on the PlayStation 3 as well, including EA with Crysis 2, Warner Bros. with Mortal Kombat, Ubisoft with both Shaun White Skateboarding and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Disney with Tron Evolution the Video Game, and 2K Sports with NBA 2K11.
For those of you keeping score at home, that’s 11 3D titles for the PS3 by year’s end.
Unlike the other consoles currently available on the market, all 35.7 million PS3 units globally are capable of playing stereoscopic 3D games via the April firmware update. In fact, four PS3 titles currently on PSN offer stereoscopic experiences: PAIN, MotorStorm Pacific Rift, Super Stardust HD and WipEout HD.
And just as a reminder, the PS3 will make 3D Blu-ray Disc movie support available later this year.
