Hi..
No, any player today that do not have 3d capacity will not have it in the future either.
We are demanded to buy new players.
Not completely true.

SONY provided a FW update for BDP-S470 after initial release to upgrade it to a 3D player.

But than they are 3D Ready from the beginning, so only new firmware is needed.

Re: would OPPO Blue ray play 3d blue ray

Just remember that some so called 3D ready BluRay players that have been updated to play 3D movies will not truly play 3D movies at full resolution. HDMI can not be updated by firmware so if the player was only HDMI1.3 it wont be even with the update.
HDMI 1.3 can not handle the higher bitrate of the new 3D

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20

Yes, it is the hardware in the players that is needed to be able to process and output via the HDMI lead to enable the 3D images to the 3D ready HDTV's, and some manufacturers like Sony are already ahead of the game.

The PS3 thanks to the GPU has the power to output 3D BD via HDMI and that will be a firmware update so the PS3 seems like a bargain to me and I am seriously considering one of the new slim ones because of this as I may take the plunge and get a 3D HDTV eventually.

All the searching I have done has said that the PS3 wont to the full 3D it will be lower resolution.

Really Tony, I may have to re-think my plans then if that is the case.

Re: would OPPO Blue ray play 3d blue ray

The PS3 will have full resolution support for 3D movies. 3D movies have a frame rate of 24fps and doubling that for 3D is only 48fps which is less than the 60fps that the PS3 already supports. All HDMI 1.4 3d Displays are required to support 3D at 1080P 24FPS, so you will get full resolution 3D movie support from the PS3.

HDMI 1.3 and 1.4 have the same interface bandwidth but HDMI 1.4 certified cables are tested at a higher bandwidth at greater distances. The only HW differences for HDMI 1.4 are Ethernet and audio return support in the interface and cable.

Here is good information on PS3 3D: http://boardsus.playstation.com/t5/P...3/m-p/45086549

Re: would OPPO Blue ray play 3d blue ray

The Ps3 will support full resolution on 3D movies. But you'd have to choose between 3D video or High resolution audio, you can't have both at the same time.
It's one or the other, for me Higher quality audio is much more important then 3D.
Anyway I think 3D Home Theater is still far from maturity. Still a long way to go. At least that's how I see it.

Re: would OPPO Blue ray play 3d blue ray

How timely this thread is.
Oppo discontinued the BDP 83 & the BDP 80 and announced that the "3D capable" BDP 93 - will be released in November.
Great timing for those of us who are ready to spring for a new Oppo player.
