The race to get 3D into our homes took massive steps forward this week as Sony announced that PlayStation 3 users will soon be able to watch 3D Blu-ray movies, 3D YouTube videos and view 3D pictures.

The technology will be available as a series of free, firmware upgrades which will be downloadable from the PlayStation Network. The first firmware upgrade will be to support Blu-ray 3D movies and will be available from September 12th. The support for 3D pictures is due later this year with the YouTube update set to follow within the next 12 months.

A firmware upgrade last month enabled 3D on the system for gaming and so far Wipeout HD, Super Stardust, PAIN and Motorstorm all support the feature. Sony also recently unveiled a pair of new 3D digital still cameras and with its line of 3D TVs growing more and more popular, it seems that the 3D revolution is well underway.
