Sony 3D TV kit, PS3 games released tomorrow

But bundles less than generous

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. ®
