Sony’s push for 3D entertainment on the PS3 doesn’t end with just games. Youtube’s jumping on the 3D bandwagon with plans to feature 3D videos soon. Mick Hocking, the man in charge of SCE Worldwide Studios’ 3D content, has confirmed that YouTube’s 3D videos will work on the PS3.
“Crucially for us, PlayStation 3 will be able to store all types of 3D content. And we can do this through properly upgrading the Firmware on the platform.”
“So you’ll see 3D games in the next 12 months, you’ll see Blu-ray movies in 3D, and as soon as the broadcasts start through our PlayTV services, you’re going to watch 3D content [via that].
“YouTube will be supporting 3D content over the next 12 months as well – and you’ll be able to watch that on the PlayStation 3. And as you start taking 3D pictures of your family or 3D camcorder movies, you can play those back on PS3, too.”
