Sony tech wizard Simon Benson has confirmed the first batch of 3D games for PlayStation 3 will be available this summer.

Speaking to Eurogamer at the Game Developers Conference, Benson said, "Basically, we're launching our TV range around June, I think, so it should be somewhere around then."

During his GDC session, Benson showed demos of WipEout HD, Super Stardust and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift. When asked if these games will be playable in 3D this summer, he replied, "I don't know if we've formally announced what we're doing for launch. But there is certainly going to be a good range of content - there probably won't be any unusual surprises, let's say."a

As reported back in January, Sony is planning to release two 3D system updates for PS3 - one for movies and one for games. You'll also need a special telly and magic glasses to get the benefit.

At least there's not long to wait. "I think certainly summer, it'll all be live, basically, in terms of the content out there," Benson confirmed.
