PS3 System Software Update v3.70 With New Stereo 3D Features

August 10th, 2011 · 1 Comment · General 3D News

Sony is expected to make available their next system software update version 3.70 today for the PlayStation 3 console that will introduces some new stereoscopic 3D related features among other things. The first one is the addition of support for 3D digital photos in MPO (Multi-Picture) format that can now be viewed in 3D on the XMB and in the Photo Gallery application. So if you have a 3D-capable camera that uses this format, you will be able to preview your 3D photos on the PS3 console if you have it connected to a 3D HDTV. The other interesting updates cover the Blu-ray 3D movie playback functionality of the PS3 console. After applying the 3.70 software update you wuill be getting support for playback of Blu-ray Java (BD-J) content recorded on Blu-ray 3D discs as well as support for DTS-HD MA and DTS-HD HR decoding/bit stream output (lossless audio) while playing Blu-ray 3D movies. So you can say that the PS3 is now finally becoming just like a dedicated Blu-ray 3D-capable player, supporting all the extra features you’d expect from such a device, but that on top of the gaming functionality of the console.

What else to expect from the PS3 System Software Update v3.70…

    It’s much easier on my wife’s eyes when she views 3D images through the XMB (as of 3.70) as opposed through PlayMemories photo viewer. I didn’t notice much of a difference, but I didn’t have a problem to begin with.
