Sony will release FIFA 2010 World Cup on 3D Blu-ray Sony has announced it will be producing the 2010 FIFA World Cup in 3D for Blu-ray, after it covers the event using Sony 3D cameras.
The company will then release the "Official 3D Film" of the event on Blu-ray, so far without a timetable or price.

Finalized 3D Blu-ray specifications should be released by the Blu-ray Disc Association before the start of the new year.

The World Cup starts in June in South Africa and is expected to be watched by hundreds of millions.

“The transition to 3D is underway, and we at Sony intend to be leaders in every aspect. Our sponsorship of the FIFA World Cup allows us to leverage our cutting-edge 3D technology and premier products with dazzling content to produce a unique and totally compelling viewing experience,”
adds Sony chairman/CEO Howard Stringer. “3D viewers around the world will feel as though they are inside the stadiums in South Africa, watching the games in person.”

Maybe if they had broadcasted the qualifiers in 3d the refs would have been able to see that Ireland was screwed by Thierry Henry's handball...

Don't count on this resolving such disputes. Just think of the riot that would be caused if they got different results from the 2D and 3D recordings!

if this is the new 3D standard and not another anaglyph release then yes you will need a new television to receive the 3D effect. But all 3D releases are backwards compatible with 2D systems just not in 3D.
