Sony has made available some additional information about their upcoming 24-inch PlayStation 3D monitor (CECH-ZED1), apparently it will not come in December as the pre-order page at Amazon has suggested, but will instead be available sometime in November. Aside from that Sony has announced that everyone who pre-orders the 3D display until September 30th will not only get the game MotorStorm Apocalypse that is bundled by default, but will also get a copy of the game Resistance 3. Aside from that, Sony has also published the above video of the PlayStation 3D monitor in action with some of it features explained and demonstrated, which apart from stereoscopic 3D support over HDMI 1.4 interface also supports the SimulView technology allowing two persons to play a game in multiplayer mode and see different images (in 2D).

Today Sony will be releasing MotorStorm 3D Rift to PSN with a price of $9.99 USD. This is the next stereoscopic 3D game available for the PlayStation 3 gamers that already have a 3D HDTV and are playing still just few of the stereo 3D-capable titles. The game MotorStorm 3D Rift includes 10 tracks from MotorStorm Pacific Rift like Kanaloa Bay or Caldera Ridge, and provides a selection of festival-favorite off-road vehicles including Bikes, Buggies, Racing Trucks, and Monster Trucks. In 3D Rift you’ll have 10 unique events to compete in (one for each track) with the full range of competitor difficulty levels through the races, so you can enjoy the brutal off-road racing at your leisure or take on the toughest and most competitive rivals.
And of course Sony plans to further expand the MotorStorm experience in 3D, but that will happen next year with the release of MotorStorm Apocalypse that is going to be complete game with stereoscopic 3D support unlike the kind of limited implementation that will be available in MotorStorm 3D Rift which is more like a 3D-capable demo of the game MotorStorm Pacific Rift. Anyway, if you already have the PS3 updated to the latest firmware with support for stereoscopic 3D gaming along with a 3D-capable HDTV, then you should go and get MotorStorm 3D Rift.
