MLB The Show– IN 3D!!! (pic from CNET)
Natal who? If your a PS3 owner this has got to be awesome news that is sure to make your Labor Day weekend. Sony said today that come sometime next year, the PS3 will be receiving a ? software update: play games in 3D. While it the Sony’s demo used the PS3 Slim, presumably the 3D support would include all PS3 models (they have nearly identical specifications). Better yet, its said that all existing PS3 games will take full use of the PS3’s new 3D playing capabilities. AWESOME!
However, you will need a new 3D-capable TV to play the PS3 games in 3D, but don’t worry: this is all part of Sony’s new mission to bring 3D to the home– with new Bravia LCD TV’s, Vaio PC’s, Blu-ray players, and CyberShot digital cameras all said to be going 3D next year. Yeah, pretty awesome. You’ll also need to wear some 3D glasses, though their design is unknown for now.
Engadget has the full scoop with some video of the PS3 playing Wipeout HD in 3D on a software updated PS3 Slim. But wow, 3D PS3 or an Xbox 360 with Project Natal? The decision just got a whole lot tougher, but which one would you go with?
Walmart ad for this weekend sale
Wanted an 80 GB PS3 but the price was keeping you away? Run down to your local Walmart and pick one up this weekend, because although the PS3 won’t receive a price cut this holiday season (Sony already said no to the idea), you can get a $100 gift card when your purchase the 80 GB system for $399 over the weekend.
One major catch you should be aware of: this offer is in-store only (or so we know) and starts on Saturday at 8 am (yup for those of you who really– and we mean really — want this, you’ll need to get up pretty early).
$100 off a HD video game system which doubles as a Blu-Ray player is pretty good deal, but remember: for those who don’t want to give up their weekend to wait in line for this deal, I’m pretty sure there will be many other price cuts for all of the video game systems (including the Xbox 360 and Wii) in the very near future as Black Friday– the major sales day following Thanksgiving– and the holiday season approaches.
What you think- are you going out this weekend to pick up for yourself a PS3, or more interested in going for a Xbox 360 or a Wii? Oh, and feel free to check out the other weekend deals in the ad and let us know if your interested in any of ’em.
