“We see 3D as a pillar of our strategy,” said Hiroshi Yoshioka, a senior Sony executive during a briefing at the firm’s headquarters at Shinagawa, Tokyo.
At the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, Sony demonstrated their 3D technology with WipEout HD, which involved putting on a pair of black glasses. Sony Computer Entertainment president and CEO Kaz Hirai confirmed at the briefing in Tokyo that this 3D functionality would be introduced to all existing PS3s via a firmware update and also made mention of the special lenses that were used to demonstrate the effect.
A summary of the briefing sent out by Sony states that the company plans to introduce 3D functionality for TVs, blu-ray players / recorders and the Playstation 3 in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011. Remastered Shadow of the Colossus for PSN in 3D, anyone?
