I am one of those guys that prefer buying games on discs instead of getting them "virtually" from online stores.

Thus I wanted to buy Wipeout HD Fury on disc, but found some forums that complained about the disc version not supporting 3D. Apparently 3D only would work with the downloaded version.

My TV and PS3 are 3D-capable, and the Wipeout HD Demo also works in 3D already. But what about the disc version? Has anyone tried this?

I have the same problem, I hope in one update for the disc version to enable 3D. It's very irritating. – vitto Apr 11 '11 at 11:02

I'm only finding the same information online that you're probably seeing - forums with complaints about the disc version not supporting 3D. But I'm finding it from enough different sources that it looks like you're correct - the disc-based version doesn't support 3D.

I've had the PSN version for quite a while and it's a fantastic game even without 3D support. (I don't have a 3D-capable TV anyway.) So either way you'll have fun with it.

You could buy the disc-based version and hope for a patch, but if you really have to have the 3D I'd recommend getting the PSN version. I understand your preference for a physical copy though - I'd have bought the disc version if it were available at the time.

Hm... I already thought about getting the disc from some game rental store to just try it out. But I figured a SE question might be quicker and for free :) – BennyInc Jan 24 '11 at 15:36
