I believe that supports HDMI 1.4a, so console games should work. At least PS3 games will, some Xbox games use side-by-side, and that won't work.

Some games also support HDMI 1.4a frame-packing on the Xbox 360, the last Batman game was the first to support this.

But I'm not sure you'll have the best results with this monitor on a console, its native resolution is 1920x1080 but current 3D games on console use 1280x720 per image. This means that the image will be upscaled to the native resolution and then halved for entrelacing. I'm not sure the resulting image will be very sharp.

You can play 3D Blu-Rays, and I believe other media files, with the PS3 directly into the monitor. PowerDVD is a computer program, and doesn't run on a PS3.

You always need to use the glasses that came with the monitor (or compatible replacements).

Not all graphics cards will support 3D over HDMI 1.4a. You will need to check either Nvidia or AMDs compatibility list:
