Sony who are trying to use their PS3 gaming console as a weapon in their 3D fight with vendors like Samsung and Panasonic have been forced to admit that its current 3D firmware updates will not make the PS3 compatible with upcoming 3D Blu-rays.
Instead owners are going to have to wait 12 months for the update. What they will get with the current firmware update is access to four movies that have been stepped up from 2D to 3D. They include Wipeout HD, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, PAIN and Super Stardust HD.
The move will force Sony customers who were banking on using their PS3 as a Blu ray player to have to invest in a separate Blu ray player if they want to watch 3D movies.
Sony announced this week that it will be offering bundle deals with its 3D Blu-ray player range.
The company also unveiled its first 3D Blu-ray release Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, will be coming to Australia later this year.
