Tomorrow, prepare to go red and blue, as Sony’s officially rolling out stereoscopic 3D functionality for PlayStation 3. Technically, it’s already there, but tomorrow’s the day you’ll actually get to begin utilizing its functionality.
Alongside the announcement of Sony Electronics’ new 3D capable BRAVIA HDTVs, Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced that, starting tomorrow, the following games and demos will be available in stereoscopic 3D for those who own a PS3 and a 3D TV.
- WipEout HD (full game): Experience the adrenalin 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.
Sony’s giving away free PlayStation Network vouchers to anybody who buys a new 3D BRAVIA television set that will allow them free downloads of these four titles over their PS3.
Additionally, SCEA’s announced that their upcoming PlayStation Move game The Fight: Lights Out will be available in 3D. The firm also promises that “3D Blu-ray movie playback is coming to the PS3 this year via firmware update.”
