3D Blu-Ray on PS3...

23 Replies 5,537 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! Smiley Happy

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.

if you know where to look you can find 3d blurays converted to side by side .....ooopss

 

and 2d-3d conversation is miles off . more so in films that in games

Re: 3D Blu-Ray on PS3...

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"
