Sony has released version 3.50 of the software for PlayStation 3, and this enables the long-awaited support for 3D movies.

PlayStation 3 is now even more compatible with 3D, since support for 3D games was released earlier this spring. The update to version 3.50 makes the PS3 capable of playing Blu-ray movies in 3D as well.

Additional new features in the 3.50 update include:

  • Facebook Integration: Developers will be able to create PS3 games that have deep interaction with Facebook. Once compatible PS3 titles are available, PS3 users can choose to access their information on Facebook – including user name, profile, photos and friends list – to enhance their gameplay experience.
  • Grief Reporting Function: Users can send claim reports directly from the XMB for any inappropriate messages they receive from other PlayStation Network users. This feature is accessible from the option menu of the messages list in the FRIENDS category.

It is reported that 3D support is somewhat limited, since the audio formats DTS HD and Dolby TrueHD is not supported, and BD-Java to provide 3D effects in the menus does not work.
