I just have this confusion about my PS3 being able to play movies in 3D on Blu-Ray. Apparently, Blu-Ray can't play films in 3D (please correct me if I'm wrong) and Avatar, which is to be released in a couple weeks now, isn't in 3D on Blu-Ray. According to the production company a 3D version should be around later this year, but the thing is, even when that happens I don't know if the PlayStation 3 (or any Blu-ray player for that matter) is compatible with that kind of format. Please let me know.

There's going to be a firmware update later in the year that will let the PS3 play 3D Blu-rays.

I think you'll just need 3D glasses like my bloody valentine did, which should come with the blu ray.

So as far as I can tell blu rays aremorethen capable of 3D.

3D tv's are to come out b4 the years end but they'll more then likely cost a fortune.

Once the PS3 gets the firmware update for it they will be able to do 3D. However, if your television isn't 3D ready (there are some out now protaganist) you still won't get 3D.

Yes, the PS3 can play 3D Blu Ray movies. Im not sure what kind of problem you are having, unless you dont have the proper hdmi cable.
