This is incorrect, although I wish it wasn't.
In the case of certain games which have 3D that released before the PS3 3D patch, 3D can be enabled from the game itself. Essentially "forcing" 3D output. However, in the case of the games which appear under the Playstation Store's 3D category, you will need the PS3 itself to enable 3D modes. The good news is that once you set your display settings on the PS3 to enable 3D, it will continue to work no matter what. It won't re-check EDID's constantly, like D* will. The bad news is that getting it to recognize 3D the first time can be a pain.
You will need the Mits 3DA-1 for these types of games, as they only output in SBS. The order you need to hook up your system is PS3>3DA-1>TV. If you have a Samsung DLP you'll also need a Gefen HDMI Detective between the 3DA-1 and the TV. Once your setup is good, turn on the TV and the PS3, then in the XMB go to Settings>Display Settings>Output Settings. Choose HDMI for your source (obviously) then hit Automatic. It should say that your output is 1080p and give you a message about 3D. If it asks for your display size (in diagonal inches) then 3D is on. If not, you'll have to try again. The exact order in which HDMIs need to be plugged in and devices turned on is still a mystery, but fiddle with it long enough and eventually it will work. Once it works, you can unplug stuff and put it in an order you want (and put an AVR in the loop) and it will still work in 3D.
Motorstorm is awesome in 3D, and Super Stardust HD is one of the best games on PSN, and even better in 3D! Happy gaming!
