3D Blu-Ray on PS3...

23 Replies 5,731 Views Created 01-09-2010

Hey everyone.

 

Just looking for a bit of advice with 3D Blu-rays on the PS3. I can play them on my Samsung 3D TV but only in 2D - 3D Conversion. When I try and play 'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' in 3D it says "3D Experience Requires 3D Enabled TV and Player".

 

Also, when playing 'Monsters vs Aliens' it only allows me to watch it in 2D - 3D Conversion. However, when playing the game Motorstorm 3D Rift from PSN it allows me to play it in actual 3D without the need for the conversion.

 

Why is this? Does PS3 not yet support 3D Blu-rays fully? Are we waiting on an update? If you could let me know or give me any advice on this it would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance! :)

Yet another month to wait, yes there is only one film available, it had a sticker on front saying compatible with 3d bluray players and sony ps3 systems
I can keep watching the demo I suppose! I could have got a compatible bluray player with the tv but opted for a surround sound system instead thinking that I wouldn't have to wait long to play 3d movies,never mind.

Hey Mate, it all depends what you are watching, Some things like Avatar are quite Passable, but things like Sky look sub standard,  And it NEVER looks as good as normal 3D.

I'm having no luck with it at all right now.

 

PS3 (original 60G version w/ hardware PS2 support)  updated to 3.50 firmware.

 

Samsung 50" Plasma 'C490' with shutter glasses

 

HDMI 1.4a cable from Vizeo

 

Monster House 3D -- no matter what I try to do, it keeps saying "3d experience requires 3d enabled tv and player"

I tried Cludy with a Chance of Meatballs, and it .. just worked. I didn't have to do anything special, I just inserted the movie, and played it.

 

HDMI 1.4 cable, btw? I didn't know the PS3 supported HDMI 1.4 cables (I didn't think they were pin-compatible).

 

I assume that 3D games are working?

The HDMI 1.4 spec is pin-compatible with all prior versions,  it just has a few more of the pins 'in use' .  And yes,  I don't have any actual 3d games but the demo for things like MotorStorm 3D work beautifully!

 

I don't have the 3d version of Cloudy,  just Monster House 3D

I tried to google around a little, and found - among other things - this:

 

http://www.cnet.com.au/sony-ps3-3d-update-problematic-on-old-consoles-339306164.htm

 

When reading that, I get the sense that not all 3D movies will work on all players. "most" "should work", etc. :(

 

And I found your US board post on the subject. :)

 

This could be one of those "call support" issues, and report back what they say. I plan on buying 3D movies, and I would like to know what kind of problems to expect.

It works at last!

 

I didnt have much time to tinker with it yesterday but this morning I went in to 'Settings->Display' and reset it for HDMI, whereupon it immediately stated that I was attached to a 3d-compatible TV.  Popped Monster House in, and it allowed me to start viewing it!

 

(I looked through the Settings->VIdeo before, but it was Settings->Display that made the difference.  Apparently auto-recognizing an HDMI cable /isn't/ good enough!  You have to manually set it to HDMI too)

Just a heads up, Alice in Wonderland and Bolt 3D, are now available to Pre Order on play.com, However they are £27.99 each, which is frankly absurd.

Apart from what seems to be some compatibility issues with 3d and the extra cost of a 3D blu-ray disc is there any reason not to buy the 3D version especialy if your planning on getting a 3D TV at some point?

Resident Evil is only about £2 more for the 3D copy, so as long as it plays as normal on my 2D I will get that version.
