Sony denies confirming 3D for GT5

Qore made "erroneous inference".

Sony's said footage from Qore of PS3 games running in 3D was filmed for "demonstration purposes" and was not confirmation of feature support.

Official US web magazine Qore showed a video reel of various first-party games displayed in 3D. These included Killzone 2 and Gran Turismo 5 as well as LittleBigPlanet, Super Stardust HD and WipEout HD Fury.

"That last feature included interviews, footage from CES 2010, and a brief montage of SCEA titles intended as examples of what 3D gaming might encompass. It is hard to do justice to just how amazing 3D gaming looks in a 2D presentation—even in an HD product such as Qore," a Sony rep told IGN.

"Unfortunately, our feature did not make it clear that the 2D game footage was included for demonstration purposes only. We apologise for the erroneous inference that 3D versions of LBP, Wipeout HD, Killzone 2, Gran Turismo 5 or Super Stardust HD are in production."

Sony's 3D firmware update for PS3 is rumoured to be arriving in June.
