PS3 to go 3D in 2010, says Sony
Specs at the ready
Sony has formally announced plans to bring true 3D gaming to the PlayStation 3.
Five advantages of the PS3 over, presumably, the Xbox 360
In a presentation designed to outline the “five key advantages of PlayStation 3”, Sony stated: “All PS3 units will be firmware upgradeable to 3D.” The company also promised to “release 3D games”.
Sony has spoken about taking the PS3 3D before, even demoing a PS3 running 3D versions Gran Turismo Prologue and MotorStorm at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) back in January 2009. But this is thought to be the first time that the electronics giant has officially promised that the console will go 3D.
Rollout of “3D Gaming on PlayStation 3” will start next year, Sony’s presentation slides revealed.
Will PS3's appear in cinemas?
Beyond the PlayStation, Sony will support broadcasters beginning to transmit live events in 3D, while also persuading more cinemas to adopt digital projection equipment fitted with 3D kit. ®

From what I read in various tech articles is that your monitor must be able to
meet 18Mhz refresh or better.
The average LCD is still just 60Mhz and Mine just meets the 1800Mhz bare
minimum so I might assume that 180Mhz will lag a wee bit on graphic intense games.
do your research... they used (<--notice the past tense) to make a lose on every PS3, but as soon as they perfected the manufacturing techniques they started making profits.
It's not 3D.
It can't be three dimensional can it, it's presented on a flat or slightly curved display, it's an enhancement perhaps but claiming that it will be 'true 3D' takes the P@#!

"*** What's in it for SONY ***
Maybe more people will buy PS3s and cells if you support it better. More nerds would buy PS3s for sure. And surely you haven't forgotten the academic boffins who have used PS3's in small pocket supercomputer clusters. We believe better linux support will result in MORE profit for you, Sony, NOT less. "
You don't get it, do you? Sony loses money on every single PS3 sale. ALL OF THEM. The only way Sony makes their money back is through selling peripherals and games. If you buy PS3s for academia, clusters, linux or whatever else you deviants want to do with it you're not going to be buying games - are you? Sony actually loses money because of this. It's fair business sense for them to stop supporting it.
Now backwards compatibility... that's a shame, that one :(
3D porn. Come on, somebody had to say it, right?
Paris cause her next movie hopefully will be in 3D.
