Sony will build 3D tech into PS3 over the “following two or three year,” CNET’s reporting.

The revelation’s come out of tech show IFA, where the site was shown PS3 working with a 3D Bravia, due for release in 2010.

From the piece:

Today, our experience involved a standard PS3. All the three-dimensional horsepower comes not from a modified PlayStation, or even special versions of its games — it’s all down to some ingenious picture-processing technology inside a new Bravia TV (currently a prototype). This means it should work with all existing PlayStation 3 games. At least, that’s the intention.

At the end of 2010, Sony plans to release this 3D Bravia for use with its games console. But over the following two or three years, we were told, it wants to build the picture-processing technology into the PlayStation itself. That way, gamers will be able to enjoy 3D gaming on any hi-def telly. Plans to incorporate the system into Blu-ray players, and even Vaio laptops, also exist.

Be warned: this may be a little confused. We’ll ask Sony for comment.
