Much as it has taken over the realm of top-tier action movies, 3D technology may be poised to take over gaming as well. Sony has said that the first HDTVs to support PS3 3D gaming will likely hit the market next year, but also dropped some tantalizing hints of 3D tech to be included with all PlayStation 3 consoles.
At Berlin's IFA show, Sony was proudly showing off a 3D version of WipEout, played on a specially modded Bravia TV that allows for PlayStation 3 games to be played in 3D. The idea is that the special LCD set will make every PlayStation 3 game 3-Dimensional, so you won't have to buy new games to get that in-your-face effect. The Bravia TV with the special tech is set to go on sale in 2010.
Not only that: Apparently, Sony would like to bring the 3D tech to all PlayStation 3s, so you will just need a special PS3 and not a new TV to enjoy 3D games. The technology won't work with movies or TV shows, sadly, and you still have to wear dorky-looking glasses to get it to work.
