Interview with Sony about the Stereoscopic 3D Support for PlayStation 3

January 8th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Other S3D Tech

Neil Schneider from MTBS3D.com did another great interview at CES 2010 with Don Mesa, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Sony Computer Entertainment America about Sony’s plans for stereoscopic 3D (S-3D) gaming related to the PS3 of course. As it become clear in the previous interview Neil did with Steve Venuti, the President of HDMI Licensing the firmware upgrade for PlayStation 3 will update the HDMI to 1.4, or at least most of the specifications of the new version that do not require additional hardware to work with. And of course the new Sony Bravia 3D HDTVs will be using full blown HDMI 1.4 hardware, so the stereoscopic 3D support will be based on the new version of the specifications as expected. But you should watch the whole video for all the details and some other interesting things regarding stereoscopic 3D and Sony…

    So this isn’t going to work with existing 3d ready displays? WTF sony?

    I wouldn’t listen to this video as confirmation on whether certain displays will work with the PS3. The questions posed in this video are very vague so I would not be surprised if the answers given were misinformed.

    DLP HDTVs using the checkerboard method will only need an adapter that Mitsubishi has announced that converts frame-sequential to checkerboard.

    120Hz Monitors (Samsung, Acer, etc) made for 3D Vision probably won’t work without new glasses anyway because the current Nvidia 3D Vision kit uses USB transmitter synced with the PC.

    If you have the Nvidia 3D Vision kit I would recommend just purchasing a Blu-ray drive for your PC and purchasing Arcsoft Total Media Theatre when the 3D version is available. They have already committed to supporting 3D Vision.

    I’d love to know the minimum PC specs for Arcsoft and Cyberlink
    for 3d. I’ll probably need a new PC I’ve already got a Bluray drive.

    To Peter

    I don’t care all that much about watching blurays in 3d but I am very interested in playing ps3 games in 3d on the Mitsubishi I plan on buying.
