Sony Releases the 3D Firmware Update for Capable Blu-ray Players

Of course, you won't have anything to watch on them until 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' hits later this month.

If you picked up a 3D capable Sony Blu-ray player then today is the day that it finally does what it was meant to do. Thanks to the latest firmware update from Sony, you'll be able to drop the word "capable" and just call it a 3D Blu-ray player.

The update is free, of course, and applies to both the BDP-S470 and BDP-S570 players. If you picked up the BDV-E570 or BDV-E770W home theater systems, you'll be able to update today as well.

There's nothing to watch on those players quite yet, but 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' is coming on June 22nd, with 'Monster House' and 'Open Season' following close behind.

PS3 owners will still have to wait a bit for compatibility. A 3D update for games is out now, but 3D Blu-rays are still somewhere in the future.
