Sony announced the 3D TV LX900, HX900 and HX800 series at the CES 2010. Today, Sony UK announced that the Sony 3D TVs will be shipping in June in time for the first 3D broadcasts of the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
If the June release date also is also true for the United States is not confirmed.
Sony is betting big on PS3 owners to adopt 3D TVs. Sony will release in June also a firmware update for the PS3 to enable 3D gaming on 3D TVs and later another update to play 3D Blu-ray titles.
With the launch of Sony 3D TVs, Sony PS3 users are in for a treat as 3D stereoscopic gaming really comes of age. Timed to complement the launch of the HX800, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe will release four 3D stereoscopic PS3 game experiences through the PlayStation Network, available as a free collection to purchasers of BRAVIA 3D TVs.
The promotional 3D stereoscopic game experiences include something for all the family, from the visceral excitement of WipEout HD and Motorstorm Pacific Rift to the wry humor of PAIN, through to the family friendly fun of Super Stardust HD6.
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Deep Sea Blu-ray 3D discs will be bundled with select Sony 3D products. Additionally, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Blu-ray 3D will be sold separately at participating retailers.
In Germany, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs will be the first new release Blu-ray 3D title in the marketplace, coinciding with the film’s 2D Blu-ray Disc debut there on June 1st. Release dates in other markets around the world will be announced shortly.
The Sony BDP-S570 and BDP-S470 3D Blu-ray Players are already shipping.
