New PS3 Firmware Targeted For June

May 19, 2010 Written by Mike Hartnett

It was roughly 6 months ago when Sony vaguely announced that they would be bringing 3D compatibility to the PlayStation 3sans Blu-ray support — via a firmware update scheduled for sometime this summer. What they forgot to mention was which of the three summer months it would be available. Well, according to a recent interview in the current issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine, we don’t have to wait much longer.

In the interview it was mentioned that the newest PS3 firmware update would be hitting next month (June), more than likely to coincide with E3. The newest update will add 3D gaming capabilities to the PS3 with 3D Blu-ray support hitting at a later date.

Let’s hope that 3D gaming isn’t the only thing we get, as there have even been rumors of an XMB redesign floating around, as well as other added features which would be a nice change of pace.

Stay tuned to PlayStation LifeStyle, as we’ll be sure to let you know once this firmware hits PS3’s around the world next month. Oh, and in case you forgot what 3D gaming looks like, treat yourself to a short demonstration of WipEout HD below.
