And a receiver thats HDMI 1.4 compliant.
If 3D requires HDMI 1.4 what would be the point of a firmware upgrade for all the existing PS3's that are V 1.3?

Just another reason I love my PS3. Sony put a ton of thought into the future of the product.

Re: 3D for PS3 in June?

Which I don't get. If they went to the trouble of having the hardware in place for HDMI 1.4 and it is a simple software upgrade to 3D, why can't the phat versions bitstream? Maybe they can but don't see it as a priority and aren't putting any resources towards that. Same reason I can't search through 5000 songs but have to scroll. I love it, but its not without its flaws.

Re: 3D for PS3 in June?

My theory is Sony would rather everyone upgrade to a Slim and will eventually phase out the Fat all together, as it stands repairs to the PS3 Fat is $180 plus shipping out of warranty which means it will be eventually cheaper to buy new than to repair. There is not one part that a Slim and a Fat have in common even within the Fat models parts are not interchangeable unless you have the exact same model #. Sorry guys this may sound like a rant but what makes me a little upset with Sony is that all this future-proofing of the console and they couldn't take the time to use decent thermal paste sorry this still rubs me wrong. I just worked on a Slim a couple days ago suffering from overheating it was out of warranty. To Dan's point I to will wait till the 2nd or maybe 3rd generation of 3D TVs to see how all this plays out and to Corock's point Sony can do this with simply firmware upgrade but like I mention before it's a matter of wanting you to upgrade to a Slim. I have listened to both PCM and Bitstream and to be honest I couldn't hear a difference between the two.

They'll have to take my backward compatible, SACD playing, 4 USB & media slot touting, touch sensitive button FAT from my stiff dead hands. LOL

Don't tempt them. LOL, But seriously this seems to be the way that this is going. I love the Fat as well but the day for me to get a Slim might happen within this year or next.
