Spread the love

With the Cinematic Mode offered by PlayStation VR, you can now get the chance to play non-VR games, watch films, browse the internet and use applications while wearing the headset. A recent PS4 firmware update also gives you the chance to watch stereoscopic 3D on your PSVR headset. This effectively turns the PlayStation VR into your personal 3D TV and without the need for expensive battery-powered glasses for viewing content. The following article will show you how to find and make 3D movie for PlayStation VR.

Where to find 3D movie for PlayStation VR viewing?

Although there are more and more VR Headsets that gives you the chance to view movies with 3D effect, the sad fact is that 3D movie source is so limited. You can’t rent 3D movies from Netflix, or your local Redbox kiosk, nor can you stream or download them from Amazon or iTunes. The good news is that there are a few source that can deliver 3D goodness to you either through the mail or over the Interwebs. Following are your options:
Comcast Xfinity 3D
Sony PlayStation Network

Unfortunately, many of the titles are available only for purchase, with prices typically set at $21.99. And a lot of the best 3D flicks aren’t there, including “Despicable Me” and “Hugo.”

Watch 3D Blu-ray on PlayStation VR

For those people who wish to get the best picture and sound quality, then renting or buying a 3D Blu-ray disc would be your best choice.

To successfully view 3D Blu-ray on PS VR, make sure to update your PlayStation 4 to System Version 4.5 and the PlayStation VR to System Version 2.5.
