3D gaming for the PS3 coming tomorrow Sony has announced today that 3D games will be available for the PlayStation 3 starting tomorrow. Anybody with the latest firmware will have the ability to play them, but you will need a 3D-capable HDTV, as well, and stereoscopic glasses.
At the same time, the company announced its first line of 3D-capable BRAVIA HDTVs, each of which will come bundled with a pack of 3D games.

The first four games available are Wipeout HD 3D, Super Stardust HD 3D, PAIN 3D and MotorStorm Pacific Rift 3D.

MotorStorm is just a demo, and for PAIN "the stereoscopic 3D content will include the Downtown area and tutorial along with three modes, including two new modes created specifically with stereoscopic 3D in mind, Alien Toss and Ice Breaker."

The other two are full games.

Finally, Sony introduced "The Fight: Lights Out" in stereoscopic 3D, which will use the upcoming PlayStation Move motion control system.

So? This isn't going to much, sure not to me or anybody I've met. Also, there's no way the ps3 has the capability to render 2160p.

I didn't think you needed 2160? I thought it worked by sending 1080 to each eye consequitively, not simultaneously?
