Sony 3D TV kit, PS3 games released tomorrow

But bundles less than generous

Boost IT visibility and business value

Sony will release its first four stereoscopic 3D games for the PlayStation 3 tomorrow.

The titles - Wipeout HD, Super Stardust HD, Pain and a one-vehicle, one-track demo of MotorStorm Pacific Rift - will be delivered to PS3s through the PlayStation Network, but only to gamers who buy a 3D-enabled Sony Bravia TV.

Right now, that means a KDL-HX803 in either its 40in or 46in size. Sony describes the HX803 as "3D capable for future use" which means that the telly doesn't come with active-shutter glasses or the transmitter used to synchronise screen and specs.

That also goes for the BDP-S470 and BDP-S570 Blu-ray Disc players that, like the HX803, go on sale tomorrow. Likewise, the BDV-E370 and BDV-E870 home theatre sets.

Sony won't be bundling all this stuff until it releases the top-of-the-line LX903 3D TV in July. It has a built-in transmitter and comes with a two pairs of specs. ®
