Microsoft is considering adding support for 3D Blu-ray playback for Xbox One, PS4 to launch with it 

If you are one of the few people who still care about 3D and own a 3D television, this should interest you. Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox One will not ship with support for 3D Blu-ray playback. Sony however did confirm that PlayStation 4 will support the ability at launch.

3D Blu-ray playback ability is hardly game-related, but it's certainly interesting considering both consoles are going for a Blu-ray future. While Microsoft has confirmed to Cnet that the ability will not be there at launch, the firm is considering adding it down the line.

PlayStation 4 will support the feature on launch after applying the 1.50 firmware update, which is available on day one, Sony has confirmed.

On the 4K front, we already know that Xbox One will support 4K output for videos and still images, PlayStation 4 however will not support 4K output at launch, though the firm is considering adding it in a later firmware update.

Do you care about 3D or 4K? Let us know below.

Thanks, Engadget.
