We're sure Sony will shed some more light on the company's stereoscopic 3D offerings at next week's E3 gaming expo, but PS3 owners with a 3D HDTV can get in on the action early.

According to CNET sister site Gamespot, Sony will release three full titles on the PlayStation Network with 3D support on Thursday. Wipeout HD and Super Stardust HD will offer a full 3D experience, while PAIN will only support 3D in two of the game's levels. Those who already own Wipeout HD and Super Stardust HD can update for free, while the PAIN update will go for a small fee.

In addition, a 3D demo of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift will be available though there's no indication that the title will ultimately receive a full retail 3D makeover down the road. Sony has also announced one of the first PlayStation Move titles to support 3D called The Fight: Lights Out.

For those in the market for a 3D HDTV, Sony is offering the trio of 3D PSN titles for free with the purchase of a Bravia 3D HDTV.

We've already had some hands-on time with Super Stardust HD and Wipeout HD in 3D , but we'll be sure to update our impressions with the final versions of these games soon.
