PS3 3D firmware "available shortly"

Includes new Trophy sorting options.

The next PlayStation 3 firmware will pave the way for 3D stereoscopic gaming ahead of the launch of new Bravia TVs, and will be "available shortly".

That's according to the PlayStation Blog. Last week Sony announced that new 3DTVs would go on sale in June and be preceded by 3D firmware for PS3. (Buyers also get three free 3D games - WipEout HD, Super Stardust HD and PAIN - and a 3D demo of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift.)

The upcoming 3.30 firmware will be mandatory and also introduces new sorting options for Trophies, which are detailed on the blog. (We'd recount them here but frankly can't make head nor tail of them.)
