As some of you will certainly remember, a week or so ago, we were talking about the fact that the first 3D titles for Sony's PlayStation 3 gaming console
had already been announced in Japan, and we were wondering just how soon the manufacturer would make the same announcement for gamers from all over the world. And sure enough, we didn't have to wait too much for this moment to arrive, since Sony
Computer Entertainment has just announced that the first stereoscopic 3D titles will be available for gamers from other parts of the world as well.
So, according to a post on the Playstation Blog
by John Koller, Director, Hardware Marketing for SCE, the following games and demos will be available in stereoscopic 3D for anyone who owns a PS3 system and 3D television: WipEout HD (full game), Super Stardust HD (full game), PAIN (only parts of the game) and MotorStorm Pacific Rift (yeah, no major surprises here, these are the same titles announced for Japan).
Moreover, the company's reps also revealed the fact that The Fight: Lights Out will be available in stereoscopic 3D, combining PlayStation Move with 3D to deliver an immersive and realistic gaming experience. Naturally, in order to enjoy all of these stereoscopic 3D goodies, users will require both a Bravia 3D-capable TV set and a PS3 running the 3D-enabling firmware update, released back in April.
It's very interesting to notice that Sony's going all out with the promotion of its 3D solutions. I mean, they've synchronized their production deadlines and in-store availability with the 3D games availability and the 2010 FIFA World Cup, practically giving those consumers who were not really decided on whether to purchase a 3D-capable display or not some pretty good reasons to do so, whether we're talking about gaming or sports.
