Play TV will be able to broadcast full 3D content later this year, Sony has revealed.
but damn i wish it was also for non UK places too :(
Agreed. Here we don't even get many HD broadcasts let alone 3D. It sucks.
Theres one 3D channel right now on SKY, and Sky have announced thier bringing a whole bunch of 3D Sky channels later this year, including sky sports 3D channels, and you dont have to pay extra subscription it all comes in with your HD package.
ten years life span it is.
YES!!, woow 3D is getting alot of support already, theres already 3D channels in the UK, im starting to look for a decent 3DTV on the market, there not really that expensive compared to the upmarket HDTV's. I've seen a few 46" 3DTV's for about £1,500 - £1,600 and normal 46" HDTV's are about £700 £800 It still is expensive i know, but its not that much more.
Hang on how is this possible with this version of Play tv?
I can't wait for Sorcery!
Currently, unlike a blu-ray 3d, stereoscopic 3D broadcasting uses the same bandwidth as 2D. This allows broadcasters to use the same infrastructure. If you watch a 3D broadcast on a regular TV, you will see the frame split into 2 (left and right). This is the left and right eye. A 3DTV can split the frame and scale it to full-res and then combine into 3D. (that's right, you lose half the horizontal resolution! 3DTVs can handle this, as well as top/bottom split and line by line splits.) so Play Tv thinks it's just recording a normal 2d image.. For full bandwidth stereoscopic 3D, bluray is the answer.
I guess all Move and 3D were in mind when PS3 was being manufactured.
*sigh* Nothing for the U.S. Man, we don't even have McDonald's as an exclusive anymore. At least we have a black president... ...that's a complete moron.
Why is he>?
This guy can't get off of it! Every other comment is a blast at Obama on a gaming website! Alright we get it, you hate Black people. Take it to the KKK fansite! How does this even fit in with exclusives, there are like 40 African countries with black presidents! Talk about morons!!!
Now all i need is a 3dtv
This news just made my morning!! Thank Sony!! 3D FTW!! ^_^
