Sony Computer Entertainment said that it did not have plans to add any kind of stereoscopic 3D technology to its PlayStation Portable game console. Moreover, Sony said that it did not expect Nintendo 3DS, which was surprisingly unveiled on Tuesday, to become successful. Instead, Sony will enable stereo 3D experience on PlayStation 3 later this year.

“Our focus on 3D right now is on the console. There is a tremendous amount of opportunity on PlayStation 3 with 3D. The amount of interest in 3D from the retail side and game publishers is off the charts. We know we have a hit with 3D on PS3 and we are going to concentrate our efforts there,” said John Koller, director of hardware and marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, in an interview with IGN web-site.

In a completely unexpected move, Nintendo on Tuesday said it would release Nintendo 3DS game console with stereo 3D screen, which does not require special glasses, that will also be compatible with existing games. Although this will be the first ever portable game console with stereo 3D support and will also inherit all the games designed for Nintendo DS (which was sold in 125 million quantity), Sony does not believe it would become any popular.

“I think it remains to be seen where Nintendo goes with 3D on a portable. Having been in the portable space for quite awhile, I think it's an interesting move but one I'd like to see where they go from a demographic standpoint. 8 and 9 year-olds playing 3D is a little bit of a stretch given where some of our research is right now,” added Mr. Koller.

Sony needs to make plans to release PsP games that don't suck. It's been awhile.
