The price of the TV is yet to be announced, but expect there to be a premium for the 3D element.

Meanwhile the company is also gearing up to make its PS3 consoles 3D. The company plans to release two firmware updates that will enable games to enjoy their games in 3D.

The first update will come before June so that consoles will be able to play 3D-enabled games via an appropriate 3D TV.

Another update, scheduled for some time later in the year, will allow the console to play 3D Blu-ray movies.
