Sony: PS3 3D Blu-ray update delayed until October

No reason given for delay, and no official release date

Sony’s CEO Howard Stringer revealed the rather disappointing news yesterday during the company’s IFA press conference. While announcing a raft of new products and showing off some of its best 3D gubbins, Stringer said that the necessary firmware update will be hitting the PS3 in October.

There was no official release date or reason given, but this delay is a month further on from Sony’s original projection of September. While delays of any kind are usually disappointing, it’s fair to say that this isn’t the end of the world, due to the current lack of 3D Blu-ray titles available in the UK.

The format has had relatively poor support as yet, but James Cameron’s Avatar is set to be the movie to boost its popularity. You’ll still need a 3D TV, mind.
