Sony releasing movies in 3D on Blu-ray

'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' coming soon

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment said Thursday that it will release 3D movies on Blu-ray Disc worldwide for the first time, beginning in the summer with the animated release "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs."

The launch is aimed to coincide with the summer arrival of Sony Electronics' 3D compatible Bravia LCD televisions and 3D compatible Blu-ray disc players.

"3D entertainment on Blu-ray is poised to revolutionize the home viewing experience in much the same way that high-definition televisions and Blu-ray Disc have over the past several years," said David Bishop, global president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
