New Blu-ray 3D Disc Players From Sony Available in March

February 14th, 2010 · 3 Comments · General 3D News


It seems that Sony is constantly working on creating a full ecosystem of stereoscopic 3D-ready products and it will not just provide us with a new range of 3D-ready TVs (BRAVIA LX900 series) and the software update to add S3D support to their PlayStation 3 cConsole, there will be much more. The Sony BDP-S570 Blu-ray Disc Player, announced at CES, for example will be the first of the company’s devices capable of playing 3D Blu-ray Disc movies with no firmware upgrade. It should be available in March with a price of about $250 USD and Amazon is already taking pre-orders with a release date announced as March 9th. If you are looking for a new more affordable Blu-ray 3D Disc Player, you’ll have another choice with Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray Disc Player which will be ready to play Blu-ray 3D Disc movies on a 3D enabled TV after a firmware upgrade. This one is also expected in March with a price of about $200 USD and again it is already available for pre-order at Amazon with an expected release date of March 16th. Completing the “3D picture”, the range of Sony Home Cinema products recently announced at CES including the BDV-E370, BDV-E870, BDV-E970W, BDV-F500 and BDV-F700 will all also offer 3D-ready status, but they will require firmware update for the Blu-ray 3D support. With all that said, you should also not forget that the first Blu-ray 3D movie titles are not going to hit the market anytime before summer along with the compatible 3D TVs from Sony and other brands, so you should consider if you want to be prepared with a 3D-compatible player early…
