So I just bought a new TV that has 3D capability and got a new 3D HDMI cable as well.Do I need to set my ps3 up for 3 D as well.
Is there a setting that I need to turn on within my PS3 because when I put in my 3D disc its saying my blu ray player does not support 3 D.
Also I dont have the lastest update which is 4.31...Do I need that??

There is no setting to enable Blu-ray 3D support. You don't need to be running the absolute latest System update, but you have to have updated in the last couple of years. The PS3 didn't originally support 3D disks because it is older than they are. Basic support for Blu-ray 3D was added in the System 3.5 update, but some features of Blu-ray 3D were added as late as System 3.7. Unless the TV, and any AV receiver or other device between the PS3 and the TV, supports HDMI 1.4; then the TV will not be able to identify itself as 3D capable to the PS3 automatically. Also, pre-Slim PS3s only support HDMI 1.3a, so you may have to set the TV in 3D mode manually with those. Technically 3D support is in the HDMI 1.4 specification, but Sony was able to work around that for the most part. All currently shipping PS3s support HDMI 1.4, and are fully 3D-capable.
