This is not much of an answer but I assume it will handle 3D content in the same way all other 3D players will (including bitrate).

It's good to see that my PS3 will support 3D Blu-ray soon. So, what else I should buy? The 3D Blu-ray title, 3D TV, and 3D Glasses? It would make sense that the Sony PS3 should support Sony 3D TV, but if I am not buying the Sony 3D TV, whether it would have compatibility issue?

The Playstation 3 has already been updated to play games in 3D.
In September a 3D update is coming that will allow 3D Blu-ray movie playback.
In late 2010-early 2011 another update adding 3-D photo playback will also be added. 3-D video playback from consumer video camcorders will also be likely added sometime in late 2011 once camcorders become more prevalent.

Cool

The ps3 is going to work with all 3d (steroscopic) displays ... I own the sammy c7000 and when they did the 3d game update a few months back after I installed the firmware u had to awnser questions like do u own a 3d display, what screen size it was clearly a marketing research ploy .... they even had all the major brands In pull down menus for easy selection....

Sony would really cut themselfs short if the ps3 only sent 3d to sony tvs.

United Kingdom Fool PS3 into outputting 3D

I can not get my PS3 to enter the 3D setup because it won't belive that it's connected to a 3D screen.
My sky box is great as it doesn't care about checking and is happy to output a side by side picture anytime.
The problem is that my screens are both lg 47ld920's, supplied by sky for my pub. I want to add Blu Ray & PS3 but my screens are not loaded with a 1.4 hdmi port & so the software is not loaded to be 3D compatible & does not give the correct responce so I can only do 2D.
This is stupid really because if the player put out a 3d image I could select the compatible version on the tv & everything would be great.
Does anyone know if I could fool the player & / or PS3 if I added one of the new 1.4 a/v amps? (Onkyo TX-SR608)
Any other ideas or guesses welcome.

Default interesting...

hi,

I just bought a new Sammy 3D LED and was looking into 3D contents, and have read up on few posts from various hi-def forums and PS3 forum on it. I came across this post on the official US PS3 forum:

http://boardsus.playstation.com/t5/P...3/m-p/45086549

but there are many none-believers that PS3 will able to handle it, do you guys really think a software emulation is all it needs for PS3 instead of a hardware upgrade?

Yes see the reasons stated above. The PS3 has the hardware needed to do full 1080p 3D.

FWIW: I have Monsters vs Aliens, Coraline and Ice Age 3 all in 3D .VOB files saved on my PS3 (1st gen) HDD and they play in real 3d on my Mitsu with the emitter/glasses. In fact, just about any media player that plays MKV or VOB files can run 3D movies as long as your files are side by side. Then you just tell your 3D box (or TV) to run in side by side mode.

I couldn't believe that my 3D game playing PS3 would NOT play my 3D blurays. And now to find out that I don't even need the actual BluRays

Default Will 3D Blu-rays work on the PS3 right now?

I know that the 3D firmware update for the PS3 comes out in October, but I wanna know if I can pop in a copy of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs or Monster House 3D in my PS3 and watch it in 2D. I don't have a 3DTV yet, but I figured that since I don't own these movies yet, I might as well get the 3D versions.

Any 3D Blu-Ray will play in 2D in ANY Blu-Ray player.

Nuff said.

Recent word confirms that the Playstation 3 will not be able to handle both 1080p 3D playback and BD-Java at the same time. Something had to give. The Playstation 3s arcitecture has allowed to be upgraded to support picture in picture and 1080p 3D video, both features not avalible at launch. Unfortunitly and likely due to the limits of HDMI 1.3 it can't handle both at the same time. Which means you will have to turn the 3D off in order to access picture in picture supplements or other BD-J interactive features.

This is a relatively small limitation but worth noting none the less

I think proponents of 3D would agree having the PS3 on board as completely 3D compliant would be a very important step in securing some staying power and immediate market penetration.

Just get some code monkeys working on it, and they'll figure something out. The only way I see this not working is if the PS4 is close enough to release (2 or 3 years) that Sony will just put its efforts into making the PS3 'get by' for now in regards to 3D. I didn't even know you could 'fake' 3D either. A nice, brief thought article their Paul. What are your thoughts on it since you posted it?
