The PlayStation Network is now offering a Stereoscopic 3D Game Pack online for £23.99 that will surely usher in a new era of enhanced stereo 3D gaming on PS3.
Gamers who have a suitable 3D TV can now purchase the 3D starter pack from PSN Europe. The game pack includes full 3D versions of WipEout 3D and Super Stardust HD, plus bonus S3d add ons for Pain and a demo of MotorStorm Pacific Rift 3D.
“We’re extremely excited to be at the helm of a whole new gaming experience unlike anything offered before,” SCEA’s hardware marketing director John Koller stated.
“Starting today, games and demos will be available in stereoscopic 3D for anyone who owns a PS3 system and 3D television. With new gaming experiences coming this year in the form of stereoscopic 3D gaming and PlayStation Move, as well as an expansive software line-up, the PS3 system truly does everything and continues to be at the forefront of innovation.”
“In addition, Stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray movie playback is coming to the PS3 this year via firmware update. Stay tuned for even more 3D news and announcements coming in the near future.”
UPDATE: It appears as of 13th June that although the pack is listed in PSN it errors when attempts are made to purchase. It is possible this shouldn’t have been made available in Europe yet. More news will follow.
