Japan's PS3 3D game updates next week

SSHD, WipEout and PAIN. PAIN's to cost.

Sony has announced that the first 3D updates to PlayStation 3 titles will be released in Japan next week.

Patches for Super Stardust HD, WipEout HD and PAIN will be released on 10th June according to the Japanese press release.

While the 3D-specific updates to Super Stardust HD and WipEout HD will be free, gamers will need to pay 300 yen to grab the PAIN 3D update.

There's no immediate word on European release timing or pricing for the 3D patches.

Sony is not expected to release a firmware update relating to the 3D functionality, having already covered that off with April's 3.30 release.

The company is also shipping new Bravia 3D TVs this month and has promised to provide four games free to people who buy them: full 3D-enabled versions of the three mentioned above, along with a single-level 3D demo of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift.
