Today sees the release of what Sony calls a "stereoscopic 3D game experiences for PlayStation 3". We're calling it a "a selection of old games given the 3D treatment and costing €29.99 / £23.99 as a download. They are also free... if you buy a 3D Bravia TV.
The games are also available individually. So, what if you already own them? "...those who already own the games can upgrade their games to stereoscopic 3D via a free patch", says SCEE.
The games are:
WipEout HD - Racing in the future.
PAIN - throwing folk around the place.
SuperStardust HD - shooting aliens.
MotorStorm 3D Pacific Rift Demo - "Available exclusively as part of the stereoscopic 3D Collection", driving around the place like a psycho.
SCEE President Andrew House waffled, "PlayStation has always been about outstanding entertainment..." at which point we gave up.
