- The PS3™ system can now play 3D content on Blu-ray 3D™ discs.

- Limitations on Blu-ray 3D™ disc playback
- The 3D display of some elements such as menus and subtitles may be different on the PS3™ system than on other 3D playback devices.
- Depending on the content, some BD-J (Blu-ray Disc™ Java*) features such as BONUSVIEW™ and BD-Live™ may not play in 3D or may not function properly on the PS3™ system.
- When Dolby TrueHD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in Dolby Digital during playback of Blu-ray 3D™ content.
- When DTS-HD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in DTS during playback of Blu-ray 3D™ content.
- *Blu-ray Disc Java provides enhanced bonus content, including network access, picture-in-picture (PIP) functionality and expanded local storage.
