Looks like the June, 2010 PS3 firmware update and 3D HDTV release date isn’t Sony’s choice…at least, not directly.
On condition of anonymity, a Sony representative explained that everything is on standby. Bravia 3D HDTVs, PS3 firmware updates, a complete line of S-3D video games – everything is ready to go!
Sony has been putting its traditional 2D HDTV units on clearance to make room for its stereoscopic 3D future, and these final product sales are all that stand in the way of their retail launch.
The good news is that the rumoured June release is somewhat restrained. If enough traditional 2D units can be sold off, we might see Bravia 3D displays on store shelves as early as April, 2010.
Isn’t it ironic that in Sony’s world, their 3D product releases are dependent on 2D customers? Media spin or sincere launch date excitement, Sony’s 3D future should unfold soon enough!
