Sony Google TV

The official Google TV team let us all know that Sony has an update in the works for their Google TV devices.  The update will bring a Chrome browser that "works faster" and enable 3D for Blu-ray discs.  Expect the update for your devices this week.  A better browser is something everyone loves, but no word if any updates are coming for the Logitech Revue, which has been discontinued.

Sony, on the other hand, is pushing forward with their commitment to Google TV.  We saw a new Bravia Blu-ray player as well as a stand alone set-top box from them in Las Vegas during CES 2012, and today's news is welcome for users of the first generation Google TV products.

so this update can make a non 3d blu-ray player into a 3d player i would have imagine that that would be more of a physical hardware upgrade than a software upgrade

No, Sony did the same thing with the PS3.

Shadowriver says:

BluRay players are more premitive hardware wise other then hardware video and audio codecs and device manufacture usually don't care about firmware updates of such devices.

Shadowriver says:

Until TV manufactures won't start use Google TV as main application platform, Google TV will be still chilling in the shadow of Android world.

I was under the impression they were updating the tv not the blu-ray player.

I'm really happy for the Sony people, but the Logitech Revue people (me) would like faster Chrome :/
