Sony PS3 Games to Hit Next (3-D) Dimension

As more TV makers roll-out 3-D televisions this year, it highlights the electronics and content industries’ chicken-and-egg problem. Without 3-D content, why should consumers pay the extra money for a new 3-D set? Without a consumer base of 3-D-ready home electronics, why should content makers make 3-D content?

Sony Corp. (SNE) sees its 35 million-plus PlayStation 3 game consoles as one way around the problem. In April, Sony released a software update for the PS3 so it can start playing 3-D videogames. Starting June 10th when Sony’s 3-D televisions go on sale in Japan, the first four 3-D titles for the PS3 will be available for download from the PlayStation Store. The games will only be available in Japan at first with the U.S. and other markets expected to follow shortly.
