Sony: 'All PS3 Units Will Be Firmware-Upgradeable To 3D'
Sony: 'All PS3 Units Will Be Firmware-Upgradeable To 3D' –
3D stereoscopic technology is a major component of Sony's strategy to achieve profitability for the PlayStation 3 -- and the company says the console's planning for a system-wide solution.
In a new presentation [PDF link] to investors about the company as a whole, Sony revealed plans to add 3D capability to PS3 games via a firmware update: "All PS3 units will be firmware-upgradeable to 3D," it says.
Sony says it's aiming to "lead the 3D market," and pointed to plans to offer 3D-specific tools to developers making games on its platform. (Some console games such as Blitz's PSN title Invincible Tiger have custom coded 3D stereoscopic modes, and Disney's G-Force has a less sophisticated red-blue 3D glasses version, but there's no system-wide solution.)
One thing I noticed in that PDF file, reading thru it is that it looks like Sony is going to be doing the same thing as M$ has.
Sony is building a network, and going to start charging for online network play, just like M$ does with right now with Live.
In the PDF it talks about a new source of money from subscriptions to their "Sony Online Service", and also diagrams on how this is going to interface with their current network. And that "Sony Online Service" is just a temp. name. -- I wonder what they are going to call it since M$ owns the rights to the word "Live".
Please say it aint so
how come every time M$ touches something they ruin it for everyone.
if sony follows suit and starts charging, it wont be long before the big N does the same.
It is so.

But I am sure slowly they will release games which only get the online features via their new paid network system.
you never know whats Sony is hiding
