Sony is all about 3D, not just in the PlayStation 3, but in its TVs, as well. If you plan on getting a 3D TV, or already have one, you shouldn’t worry that Sony is the only company working on 3D games.

In a recent interview with, Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida said, “Almost all WWS developers are researching how they can incorporate stereoscopic 3D technology into their games.”

He went on to say, “With regards to adding 3D technology to existing titles, it is much more difficult to do as the game engine has already been developed, and in most cases the development team has moved on to new titles.
“It is always better to adopt new technology into new titles, as the content can be created with stereoscopic 3D effects in mind.”

So, he’s basically telling us that more new 3D games are coming, but older games won’t get a patch or update to make them 3D. There are some pretty big titles getting 3D treatment, including Gran Turismo 5, MotorStorm: Apocalypse, LittleBigPlanet 2, Killzone 3, and The Sly Collection.
