Delving a little deeper
Multiplayer out due to fractured community concerns
Remember when Sony wanted the world to wear 3D glasses? Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception was one of its big Bravia pushes, but now that we live in an age where stereoscopic sets are frowned upon, the forgotten functionality won't be making a return in the just-announced Uncharted: The Nathan Drake...
Finally, a new feature
That boring PlayStation 4 software stability update wasn’t the one that Sony teased after all, as 3D Blu-ray support is coming to the black behemoth next week. The platform holder revealed the snippet in a tweet overnight, proudly declaring that the eye-popping functionality will be made available
Guerrilla Games flattens hopes
Cast your mind back to the three-dimensional days of 2011 and you may recall Killzone 3 comprising a sizeable portion of platform holder Sony’s stereoscopic push on the PlayStation 3.

Delving a little deeper
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe executive Jim Ryan has confirmed that the company is still backing 3D, even if it rarely touches upon the technology these days.

Back to basics
For the first time in several years, attendees at Sony's E3 press conference this week weren’t forced to put on 3D glasses. In fact, host Jack Tretton didn’t even spend a single second talking about the technology on stage. But what has caused the company’s sudden change in attitude? According to SCEA's Scott Rohde, it’s just...

We all knew Child Of Eden was getting PlayStation Move and 3D support many months ago, but it's taken this long for Ubisoft to confirm things
Still, at least the word is out now — and with a September release date pledged, we've not got long to wait until we get out hands-on it. Child Of Eden — the spiritual successor to Rez — released on XBOX 360 with Kinect support earlier in the year. The..
EA's CEO John Riccitiello isn't hot on 3D gaming in the slightest
The company executive told shareholders overnight that it'd rather invest in social gaming than 3D technology at the moment. Frankly, we have not seen a big uptake for 3D gaming, he told Gamasutra. We havent seen a big uptake for 3D televisions in the home, at least not yet. And were not here trying to drive the market,..
With Sony so heavily invested in 3D content, you'd think they'd be pushing every visual media outlet to develop content in the extra dimension

When we say "purrrdy", we also mean "a bit gross"

Yes — there are zombies dressed as clowns. We told you this game was..

Microsoft did not money-hat Child Of Eden
That's the message of Q-Entertainment's James Mielke in the latest 8-4 Play podcast [a really good podcast by the way, give it a shot - Ed]. According to Mielke, the delay is simply down to Q Entertainment's small studio, with the 30-strong team switching their attention to the PS3 version now the XBOX 360 edition is on store shelves. Were doing..
Konami's released a double-barrel of information regarding its upcoming survival horror title, Silent Hill: Downpur
The first is not so offensive; Downpour will include full support for stereoscopic 3D televisions, potentially enhancing the game's gloomy, psychological experience. The second announcement is pretty disappointing for Silent Hill fans though. Korn's releasing a song for the game's..

Insomniac Game's going all out with Resistance 3, confirming support for the PlayStation Move, Sharpshooter and 3D televisions at a community event over night
To be honest, after Killzone 3's fantastic implementation of both technologies, we'd be disappointed if they weren't in the game. It just makes sense to give players as many options as possible, and there are a lot of players that prefer..
Stereoscopic 3D support is like the new multiplayer
Sometimes it's not necessary, but if you've got the resources to do it — may as well have that tick on the back of your box, right? Anything those Marvel games can do, the DC ones can copy.

Irrational Games' Ken Levine has ruled out any PlayStation Move support for the upcoming Bioshock Infinite, stating that gamers would feel "cheated" by it

Y'know, you can't really say that there's a "lack" of stereoscopic 3D content out there anymore
It was a common criticism last year, but seriously, it seems like virtually every game supports the additional dimension these days. Take SEGA's Marvel tie-in games for Captain America and Thor. You'd assume that both games would just be cheap cash-ins, right? Well they probably are, but still, they're..
Joystiq's reporting that Insomniac's platforming co-op title, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, will support stereoscopic 3D visuals when it launches later in the year

For a limited time, copies of Killzone 3 will contain access to the beta, which will be made...
For a company pushing 3D so hard, many people are bemused at the NGP's lack of three-dimensional technology, particularly with Nintendo pushing the feature so hard on 3DS
Sony's admitted that they dabbled with 3D technology for NGP, but SCEE president Andrew House has concluded that the "shared experience" didn't translate to portable devices. "We view 3D as having the greatest..
We've said it once and we'll say it again: MotorStorm: Apocalypse is the best looking example of 3D in video games we've seen to date
It's incredible. To celebrate the game's stupidly good technology, SCEE's released a 3D trailer for the game. Unfortunately, as very few of us actually have access to 3D tech, the 2D trailer embedded is the one we'll all be watching. Sony promises that a 3D version..
If anyone can justify stereoscopic 3D technology, it's Naughty Dog
While that might not be a fair assessment on other developer's capabilities (MotorStorm: Apocalypse and Killzone 3 both look stunning in 3D), it's a thought that none-the-less crossed our mind after this afternoon's Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception announcement. Following the game's announcement this afternoon, Naughty Dog's Arne..
THQ's revealed plans to announce two "core" PlayStation Move titles soon
THQ's core games boss Danny Bilson revealed on Twitter, "Two core games coming on Move. One is a hybrid with Move and 3D." THQ has been on somewhat of a charge lately, making plenty of exciting announcements. Looks like the refreshed publisher's got one more title up its sleev

Auditorium is all about "transforming light into a symphony of sound"
Nope, we don't get it either, but the game's executive producer assures us we'll have an "a-ha" moment after a couple of levels. Good, because judging the game purely on its aesthetics it looks amazing. Like something we'd want to play anyway. The PlayStation Network...
If there's one game that's certain to convince you 3D technology is the future, MotorStorm: Apocalypse is that game
It looks absolutely breath-taking in the third dimension; almost like developers Evolution Studios have worked some kind of magic on the PlayStation 3. Speaking with Eurogamer, the team's rubbished claims that the added dimension eats up processing power - describing the comments as..
The big feature of Sony's latest firmware update was to allow 3D Blu-ray playback on the PlayStation 3
Despite working like a charm, it does have some issues - as pointed out by Blu-ray.com. The site notes that while viewing movies in full 1080p 3D on the PlayStation 3, viewers will have to sacrifice lossless audio. The report on Blu-ray.com states: "I can confirm that with the PS3 3.50..
You know, we remember at time when PlayStation firmware updates included massive features
So big were the features, that Sony accompanied the announcements with walkthrough demonstrations of all the new goodies. Those days seem to have faded. Sure, firmware 3.50 patches in a pretty big feature for those with expensive televisions - 3D Blu-Ray...
inFamous 2 is going to be amazing based on the small snippets of the game we've seen
It doesn't need any extras to enhance that. However, one of the best things about the PlayStation 3 right now is the way it can support additional technologies - like PlayStation Move and 3D - that can enhance the experience for those who want it. According to an interview with the HipHopGamer, Sucker Punch are..
Sony's confirmed that they'll be patching 3D Blu-Ray support into the PlayStation 3 from next week, when firmware update 3

Sony's confirmed that Metal Gear Solid: Rising will be playable in full stereoscopic 3D on the PlayStation 3
It should make the art of melon slicing every inch more exciting with the added dimension. Now all we need is a PlayStation Move announcement. How about it Kojima?
One of the best things about the PlayStation Move is that is can be paired with another of Sony's unique new tech properties - 3D
Beatshaper's PlayStation Network title, StarDrone, is the latest title to take advantage of both of Sony's cutting edge extras; offering support for both the Move and 3D to deliver a new level of immersion. StarDrone's...
We've always imagined that VooFoo's already-quite-good pool simulation title, Hustle Kings, would be better with added PlayStation Move stabbing motions
Turns out, we might have been right. Maybe? Nah, in all honesty, the Move implementation looks kinda wonky; going by the po0r fools in the above trailer anyway. But whatever, it's a free update...
What's the one thing you've always wanted in Metal Gear Solid 4? Trophies, right
Yeah, us too. 3D support would just be the icing on the cake, right? Totally. Well it nearly happened. In fact, agonisingly Kojima's revealed that he "wanted" to release a "Complete" version of the title. Sadly, he just doesn't have the time. We know. I wanted to make a Complete Version with..
If you've already splashed out on a 3D TV for video games, you may be wondering when your PlayStation 3 will be able to deal with 3D movies too
After all, you want the most bang for your buck right, and those 3D Blu-Ray players are pretty expensive. Well now we've finally got a date for 3D Blu-Ray support on PlayStation 3: October. That copy of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs will just have to..

Inspired by the likes of Castle Crashers and DOTA, Trendy describes Dungeon Defenders as a "cooperative tower defense and online role-playing action bonanza!" Exciting. The game...
MotorStorm: Apocalypse in 3D is the future
It looks incredible. The kind of incredible that makes skint blog editors like us cry ourselves to sleep knowing we can't afford a compatible television. Those of you who've already splashed out on a new television are in luck though. Following on from the one track demo in the PSN 3D pack, Sony's decided...
We've seen MotorStorm: Apocalypse in 3D and we have to say that it is pretty incredible
The depth adds to your ability to judge corners, but the effect brings so much more to the image. There was one moment during our hands-on where we intuitively ducked to the side as a large piece of debris flew out of the screen. Along with Killzone 3, Apocalypse is absolutely the game that will convince you to..
If there's one genre we love, it's the tennis game genre
Seriously, we just can't get enough of games involving racquets and balls. We know it sounds absurd (you probably like your shooting and killing), but ever since we first tried Virtua Tennis in an arcade we've been in love with the genre. So it's with massive announcement we can confirm that Virtua Tennis 4 is coming to the PS3 with..
Naughty Dog's community strategist, Arne Meyer, has told PSUniversity that the studio will only utilise motion control and 3D if it "fits into the story" of their future projects

Have you ever disagreed with someone else in the house over who gets to watch what on the television? Sony's kinda got the problem sorted, with a new multiperson stereoscopic TV system that could essentially allow different people to watch different content on the same TV
Mad, right? You'd need glasses to do it - we're not going to get into the actual ins and outs of how it works ('cos we don't..
You can count the number of games that fully utilise the full 1080p resolution on a couple of hands
Gran Turismo 5, Wipeout HD... Erm... Exactly. So it's no surprise to hear Sony's senior development manager, Simon Benson, declare that the company are capping 3D gaming on PS3 at a screen resolution of 720p. According to Benson, who spoke at the Develop conference in Brighton last week, even games..
We were behind the curve a little with 3D but we finally got our first taste of the tech earlier this week
We'll say this much — don't believe the hate and scepticism and try it for yourself. Our demo honestly blew us away. It's incredible. We're not sure what's shaping people's dislike for the movement, but whatever. We went into our demo expecting very little (because everyone hates it, right?)..
Sony loves 3D
They're pushing it so hard it's almost startling. They've made a bet on this technology, and they're determined to lead with it. While other electronics manufacturers are pushing the tech too, nobody is pushing it quite as hard as Sony. There is risked attached — 3D is clearly in its infancy and Sony are aware of that. But there has to be adoption of the tech in order for it to..
There was a mildly comical moment during Nintendo's E3 press conference when exec Reggie Fils-Aime had a good bash 3D glasses
He was building up to the announcement of his company's 3DS, a glasses-less portable device which uses clever screen technology to create a three-dimensional effect. Sony's Worldwide Studios boss, Shuhei Yoshida, reckons Nintendo and Sony should stop hating, and start..
We were quite surprised by the sheer amount of content announced for Sony's new 3D enabled PlayStation 3 during E3
Seems like there are currently a lot of developers on-board, and that means more incentive to pick-up the technology. One sub-set of studios you'd expect to adopt the new tech are Sony's in-house development teams. Speaking in an interview with PlayStation.com, Sony Worldwide Studios..
The God Of War Collection came with two games and, as such, two platinum trophies
The Sly Cooper Collection, due later this year, will launch with three games and, yes, you guessed it, three platinum trophies.

You can't beat a good re-release -- and with 3D and HD upscaling, the Sly Cooper Collection looks to be exactly that

Grilled today by EDGE at a 3D conference, Sony UK's boss Ray Maguire has said he's "not fussed" about what competitor's have to say about Sony's first-party titles

No word on a date or anymore details on the utilisation of the 3D, but hey, Sony's just practically announced virtual reality (in kind). Nice. Apparently other PlayStation Move titles will be compatible with 3D too, and there'll be a total of 20 3D games..
Honestly, we feel like we're the only publication on the Internet in support of the 3D movement
Every other publication out there seems to be grappling with the "why" and "how" rather than the base-line concept. Look, we understand as well as everyone else that 3D is going to be expensive, and many (us included) will not be looking to upgrade for some years. That's absolutely..
We daresay it is, Mr
Sony. You know, you develop your game in high definition and then you have to render it twice. Difficult. Still, speaking to OPM magazine, Sony's Simon Benson was keen not to rule-out any future updates. Im sure we will [retrofit more games with 3D], as adding 3D to a game can make it a whole new experience, he said. " retrofitting 3D is actually harder than..
Sony's announced over-night in Japan that, hey, 3D is coming to your Playstation 3
It's coming June 10th to be precise, alongside a slew of updated content. Games supporting the service out of the gates include PAIN, Wipeout HD and Super Stardust HD, the former of which we posted about yesterday. PAIN will require a ¥300 update in Japan, which we assume will translate here in the West too..
Unofficial Playstation Store blog, PSNStores, are suggesting that the 3D update for PAIN will land this week
They note that the pack's due for Hong Kong next week and assume that it'll be coming to the UK and US too. The pack includes two new game modes: Alien Toss and Ice Breaker, the latter of which has you tossing explosives at an ice fortress. Presumably it all looks eye-meltingly gorgeous too..
Speaking on the Playstation website, SCEE's president Andrew House has claimed that "games are a perfect fit with 3D" and expects them to "lead the way in consumer understanding of how 3D enhances the entertainment experience"
This follows the announcement of Killzone 3 earlier in the week which is set to implement stunning 3D visuals. "Games can be adapted into 3D relatively easily and with..
If you didn't hear yet, Nintendo announced a 3D successor to the Nintendo DS yesterday, entitled the 3DS
Apparently the portable can deliver 3D gaming without the need for glasses. SCEA's marketing boss John Koller has spoken to IGN about Nintendo's announcement, and why Sony are focusing their 3D efforts on the Playstation 3 only.Our focus on 3D right now is on the console. Theres a tremendous..
VG247's nabbed some shots of a debug PS3 option for outputting 3D video
The shots come after last night saw various outlets speculating that Firmware 3.20 is now released on debug kits, and in the hands of developers. That 3.20 update is apparently just "months away" for consumers. Alas, if you've not got a 3D capable TV, don't get your...
The big news coming out of CES this year was without a doubt 3D technology in the home
Now, I'm not a tech guy, so I don't really want to get bogged down with semantics and core-duo processing, but what I'd like to talk about in today's opinionator is the effect 3D may have on the Playstation 3s hardware. As PushSquare readers will know, Sony have...
