TechRadar reports that Sony's new 3D HDTV, the Bravia HX803 which is set for a June launch, will be packed with 3D PlayStation Network games playable on the PS3 console. The company also said that it will bundle exclusive 3D Blu-ray disc movies with other Sony-based 3DTVs and Blu-ray players including the popular Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Deep Sea.

Sony said that its list of stereoscopic titles will include three episodes of PAIN, the full version of WipEout HD, a demo of Motorstorm Pacific Rift, and the full version of Super Stardust HD. Buyers of the new HDTV will receive vouchers used to unlock and download the specialized games from Sony's digital network.

The Sony Bravia HX803 serves as the company's official "launch model," and will be followed by LX903. According to Sony, the new HDTVs use the latest 200 Hz high frame rate technology that enables 3D in Full HD 1080p.

"The High Definition 3D image is further enhanced with the inclusion of 'High Speed Precision, 'LED Boost' and '3D up conversion', three technologies unique to Sony and designed to make the 3D image even clearer and brighter and the 3D experience even more exciting," the company said.

As reported earlier, Sony plans to update the PlayStation 3's firmware with support for 3D gaming this summer, slated to land on the console before the HX803 hits the market. Sony will release a second firmware update that will enable playback of 3D Blu-ray discs at a later date.
