One of the best home theater systems coming out from Sony this year is the Sony BDV-E770W. This 5.1 channel system with 3D Blu-Ray would definitely transform any room into a home theater. Its amplifier delivers an output power of 1000 watts which is perfect in recreating a theater like atmosphere in any medium or large sized room. You can even stream Internet content from providers like Netflix and YouTube with the included USB Wi-Fi dongle.

What makes this system great is that its Blu-Ray player is already 3D capable. This means that you can now view 3D movies as long as you also use a compatible 3D TV. Setting the system up is pretty easy since there are automatic settings which you can activate. If you are an advanced user you can also tweak the system through its manual controls.

Here are some of its most notable features

  • Full HD1080p playback from the 3D Blu-Ray

3d ps3

Sony have revealed that the 3D Blu-ray update, allowing playback of 3D Blu-ray movies, for the PlayStation 3 console should be available at some point in September. The release was originally dated as available “in the fall” of this year. There will also be a further update to come after that to add compatibility for 3D photographs on the PS3.

SCEE are keen to add 3D gaming to the PlayStation format as soon as they can because they see the gaming side of 3D as the front runner in the 3D revolution. As SCEE director Mick Hocking announced “We think games are going to be the killer content for 3D. In general, we find that 3D enhances all types of games. There are no types that it doesn’t bring a benefit to. We think the games this year are going to do the same [as Avatar did for movies] for the gaming community”.

Four gaming titles have been released already on the PSN that support the upcoming 3D technology – Wipeout, Motorstorm (demo), Super Stardust and PAIN and there are more to come including top titles such as Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo 5.

The full interview with CVG shows that Sony are taking 3D technology very seriously and the future of 3D in their hands is very exciting indeed!
