Did Sony Just Confirm They Are NOT Releasing Anymore BluRay 3D's?!


I have no idea if this means anything, but Sony Pictures has announced that "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter" is coming to BluRay and 4K UltraHD.  No DVD was announced, but also no BluRay 3D was announced.  The movie was obviously released in 3D.  Sony was the company who decided to start packing the 3D disks with their 4K disks to get the best of both worlds, and they are not doing that with this release.  Obviously this is very concerning.  Since Sony has currently halted production of 3D TV's, they might now be backing out on BluRay 3D.  Or this movie simply wasn't a big enough hit for them to bother with the 3D release on home video.  I've reached out to Sony for comment and I'll let you know if they get back to me.  For the time being, keep buying BluRay 3D's.  "Sing" and "Passengers" are the latest to be released in 3D (and the first one is actually pretty good), so there's a couple ideas right there.

  1. Resident Evil Final Chapter is definitely being released on 3D blu-ray in Japan, but I don't know where else. I think the Passengers blu-ray has excellent 3D (at least on a 4K OLED it is stunning).

  2. Sony has added 3D blu-ray playback capability to the PlayStation VR, so one can only hope that will encourage Sony to continue to release movies on 3D blu-ray. Article here:

    1. Kinda crazy that you have a 3D blu ray site and seem to not know about the 3D market in Europe.
      (Avoid the kirchen sink 3D Discs from Germany though)
