Sony delays PS3 3D Blu-ray update

Firmware changes pushed back to October at IFA press event

Sony has delayed the European firmware update to its PlayStation 3 console, intended to support playback of 3D Blu-ray movies.

The new release date is now slated for October 1.

The change in date, which was announced at Sony's IAF2010 press event yesterday, means an extra month's wait until early 3DTV adopters can watch any 3D films, as the firmware had originally been touted for September.

Some observers have speculated that the firmware delay may be in order to also build in preventative measures for the recent PSJailbreak piracy-enabling device.
