Sony Releases the 3D Firmware Update for Capable Blu-ray Players
The update is free, of course, and applies to both the BDP-S470 and BDP-S570 players. If you picked up the BDV-E570 or BDV-E770W home theater systems, you'll be able to update today as well.

I really don't see what all the fuss is about with 3D. Movies are not meant to be funfair rides for the most part and if I wanted to be transported into a movie, I'd play a decent videogame. 3D is just another stupid marketting gimmick, and is not something that even remotely interests me.

Why no 3D for the ES series Blu-ray players?

The PS3 can be upgraded because it doesn't use an SoC. It uses the Cell BE which is software based.
Plus you need a 2X speed BD drive, which the PS3 has and your player does not.

I've seen the 3D Blu-ray / 3D TV demos in TV showrooms etc. and they are very impressive, but... I can't see the wife and I and two kids (under 5 and under 2!) wearing the glasses in our living room.
We just watched Alice in Wonderland over the weekend on (2D) Blu-ray and I must say, it looks practically three dimensional without any glasses in sight!
If my TV dies, I'll buy a 3D compatible one to replace it, but in the meantime, I'm not changing!Kit: XBox 360 HD DVD Add-On Drive, Sony PS3, Sony HTPC with Blu-ray Drive.

We are still waiting for the PS3 firmware update that will make it 3D Blu-ray capable.
I monsieur's reaction is the consensus on 3D right now. Some will pay for it but most will wait.
