Last we heard about 3D gaming on the PlayStation 3, it was “coming shortly”. That was back in April. But now it really is coming shortly. Sony just announced that Firmware update 3.20 will release June 10, and will provide 3D support to selected software.
The first games to benefit from that extra dimension will be WipEout HD, Pain, and the ace Super Stardust HD.
Current owners of these games will be able to update WipEout HD and Super Stardust for free, though Pain will require a separate ¥300 ($3.29) purchase in Japan to unlock its 3D mode (with ¥300 also added to the game’s price for prospective new owners). No word yet if a charge will apply outside Japan, though it seems likely. There’ll also be a 3D mode added to a demo of Motorstorm 2.
