If you're as bored of PS3 Slim and price cut 'reporting' as we are, it's refreshing to hear that Sony is actually talking about something concrete in relation to PS3 related tech. At a recent briefing in Australia, Sony's Yoshinami Takahashi (deputy senior general manager, Home Entertainment Group... phew), said that he expected the 3D Blu-ray format to be ratified this year, with players available in 2010.Cnet
reports that "When asked what he thought studios were planning for 3D Blu-ray content, Takahashi conceded that shorter-length content was more suited to the technology. As many viewers suffer from headaches and nausea watching full length movies in 3D, documentaries and animated shorts would probably be in greater demand."
Sony then clarified Takahashi's line by stating, "If the 3D Blu-ray format, which is currently being tested, is confirmed and goes into production, we would be hoping to see 3D Blu-ray players by the end of next year, however, nothing has been confirmed as yet."
So, does this mean a new PS3 with 3D Blu-ray or will PS3 owners be using outdated tech in 2010? We've got no idea, but someone is bound to run a story saying that a source has told them that this is definitely happening for sure.
