Sony Commences Full 3D Onslaught

3D TVs have been in the forefront of the minds of PlayStation 3 owners everywhere, ever since Sony revealed that the PS3 would be receiving a firmware update that made the console capable of playing back 3D games, with a future update down the road that allows 3D Blu-Ray playback.

Sony, who has been one of the staunchest supporters of getting 3D into homes across the globe, has just unveiled it's full line-up of 3D capable home theater components, including the new 3D Bravia HDTVs.

Sony has also just revealed during their 3D press conference that 20 3D capable PS3 titles will be available by the end of the year. On top of that, SCEA will be offering a PlayStation Network voucher to download the first 4 3D capable games available for free, if you purchase one of the new Sony 3D Bravia HDTVs.

That's not all. PlayStation Move title, The Fight: Lights Out will also be in stereoscopic 3D when it launches.

man, that's a lot of 3D products. I thought Sony just had like 1 tv

I am still not sure I want a 3DTV. They sure do look nice though. And the PSN offer just sweetens the deal. One question though, with these 3DTV's do you have to wear the glasses constantly? I haven't done too much research on these new TV sets.

Oh I know I want one.. My wife on the other hand.. How do I convince her that this is worth the money, she doesn't care about games at all.

I care about games, in fact I LOVE them. But I'm not interested in 3DTVs at the moment. The buying price is absurd. I'm perfectly happy playing my games just the way they are. All I hope is that Sony doesn't make 3D a priority because they know damn well that the majority of PS3 owners aren't investing in a 3DTV...especially in this economy.

Btw, how many 3D Blu-ray movies/cable channels are there right now?? I rest my case. Its not worth it unless all you plan on using your tv for is 3D gaming.

I rest my case... btw can anybody tell me what pushed hdtv into homes- give up?? It was sports, namely ESPN HD, now we have ESPN 3D, ready to push all over again with 85 live 3D sporting events between now and the end of 2010...

hahaha! D4rknikon, tell me abt it maannn!!!

yeah you have to ware the glasses to get the 3D effect but if your not wearing them it will look just like regular TV,I'm not getting one yet I'm going to wait 2 or 3 years, that will give them time to get all the bugs out and become better tvs :P and most of all cheaper.

If 3D really kicks off, Sony is set to win big, and make a killing

sikbeta3111d ago

It's Already Begun...

3D is Here to Stay, Loads of Industries are Pushing and supporting it, it's like [HD] all over Again

Enjoy it Pals...

3D Gaming FTW!!!

doctorstrange3111d ago

I love 3D, as a poor person, I hate it

badz1493111d ago

I'm not poor but I still can't afford one. I hope the prices go down fast!

I hope this thing converts 2D images to 3D like the Samsung. You could have all of your games in 3D. No need to re-buy 3D enable blu-ray or games.

See here:

That is completely different. That TV only guesses as to what objects appear 3D and what doesn't. True 3D uses two cameras (film) and two points of view for games to give a true sense of 3D.

goodfellas273111d ago (Edited 3111d ago )

It's a good add-on to have and it looks just like the Real 3D. Please head to the Samsung store and see a demo of live TV and you'll be wow!
