Playstation 3 3d System Update
The PlayStation 3 certainly is the premier video game console that is 3D-ready. The Xbox 360 Elite does have 3d compatibility, but Microsoft is not planning to develop many video games that support 3-d graphics. The PS3 now has lots of 3d video game titles to choose from, and even more are expected to be sold in 2011. However, before you can begin playing 3-d video games (or watch 3d Blu-rays) on your Ps3, you may need to up-date your system firmware.
The 3d firmware updates to your Ps3 were introduced in 2010, so if you haven’t performed an update in a while, you should do one to confirm 3d compatibility. Normally, it is a good idea to test for updates every month or so. To perform the update, stick to these instructions:
1: Start up your PlayStation 3 and proceed to the “Settings” menu, choose System Update. Choose to update via the internet (you have to be connected to the internet to download and install firmware updates). If the PS3’s system firmware is NOT up to date, it will prompt you to download the newest update. Begin the download.
2: After completing the download, you’ll be asked to install the update, doing this will first restart the PlayStation 3 and you will need to connect your Ps3 controller to the gaming system with the USB cable.
3: After the restart, you’ll have to accept the terms and conditions and start the firmware install. After the install is finished, you will have to reboot your PlayStation 3 one last time. Now you’re done!
With your updated Ps3 firmware, your console will now have 3d gaming and 3d Blu-ray capabilities. This is a great advantage of the Ps3 because it enables you to eliminate the need for a Blu-ray or DVD player.
