Sony PS3 3D Blu-ray update due in v3.50 on Sept 21

Sony has confirmed that the PS3 Blu-ray 3D update is on track for release on September 21, as part of the upcoming v3.50 firmware upgrade.  Although stereoscopic 3D gaming is already supported on the PS3 – and indeed has been since v3.30 – the console has so far been unable to play stereoscopic film content from discs.

Sony is also promising "a few additional features" as part of v3.50, though they're keeping those close to their chest until next Monday, on the even of the firmware's release.  They're likely to include bugfixes, though PS3 owners might still be wary: the last time the company updated the PS3 they blocked a system of hacks that allowed pirated games to be played.
