During a recent presentation on 3D technology, Sony’s Mick Hocking has revealed that the company’s very pleased Nintendo has decided to launch the 3DS.

With Sony itself being a supporter of 3D and with Nintendo doing likewise, Sony hopes it will help raise the technology’s profile.

“We are very pleased that Nintendo is launching in the field of 3D with its Nintendo 3DS, as this will give the general public a better understanding of 3D and thus democratizing this technology in some way,” said  Hocking.

“It’s certainly a good thing for our products, screens, and PlayStation 3 compatible 3D. ”

Sony used its E3 conference to promote 3D in a big way.

Big hitters such as Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo 5 will both support the tech at launch, and other titles will no doubt follow soon after, if not before.
