Sony’s announced it’s releasing Firmware 3.50 for PlayStation 3 next Tuesday, September 21.

The update will add in the 3D Blu-ray functionality.

No details on other features were announced, but that will come on Monday, according to Sony.

“We know that many consumers have purchased 3D TVs already and more of you will be purchasing them as the holidays approach – so we’re excited to offer this firmware update that makes all 38 million PS3s worldwide compatible with Blu-ray 3D discs,” said SCEA’S Eric Lempel.

Sony added support for stereoscopic 3D to PS3 with the release of Firmware 3.30 back in April, allowing games to operate in 3D.
