Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 will support 3D movies and games thanks to a firmware update

As Sony hinted at CES 2010 earlier this year, the PlayStation 3 will be 3D compatible thanks to a firmware update due to be launched imminently.

Sony's American gaming boss, John Koller, has revealed that separate upgrades would enable stereoscopic gaming and 3D movies, according to our sister site Stuff.tv.

On the arrival of 3D on the PS3 Koller says: "All PS3 units that exist in homes and markets will be able to play 3D stereoscopic games as well as 3D BD movies through separate firmware upgrades."

And about those games? "We'll be announcing actual game titles separately later," says Koller, keeping us all guessing.

As we reported yesterday, Sony has announced a whole host of 3D-compatible products for release, while some existing players will also be upgradeable to support 3D via a firmware update.
