In a live discussion with Tim Page, Sony Electronics, Sony says 3D wouldn't "work well" with a 3D TV as small as 20 inch. But they're "looking into" making TVs smaller than 40 inches.
So no bedroom 3D then? Thats a major downer for gamers :(
he is right. i played some 3D crap on monitor, it was pain. 3D is supposed to be played at least on 35-40" TV. let's wait little longer and then you can buy 42" 3DTV almost for free
Works well on 20" monitors in 1080P! Oh but that's on PC never mind....
@conloles glad you only have one comment, that wasn't even clever.
They said LESS than 40". 40" is a bedroom size HDTV so your comment makes no sense Zir0.
wouldn't expect anyone to buy a 3DTV that small for gaming or even 3D bluray play back [as it would be highly expensive compared to similar no 3D sets and as with all tvs the price per inch goes down as size increase]
Who games on a 20" HDTV in their bedroom? You can get 26" PC monitors for $200. Why game on a 20"? I have a 52" in mine and my teen boys have 40" in each of theirs (all 1080p). I hope they come out with a 32" that will work for my arcade cabinet. 40" would be too big when you are only 18 to 24" from the monitor. I plan on picking up a 3D display when GT5 is released. I just have to turn laps in 3D. I have the wheel, racing chair, sound system, tactile transducers and room shaking sub. The only thing missing is a decent 3D display to get the full immersion.
Who the hell is going to want to watch 3D in bed, let alone game in 3D in bed? I'm sure there are some people who want everything without limitations, but damn. I'm happy with HD gaming the bedroom and 3D in the family room.
What if you wear glasses? Are you supposed to wear the 3D glasses on top of your regular glasses then?
Yes. This also came up in discussion and he tests 3D for a living and says it works perfectly well. I can vouch for this too as I am short-sighted and when I watched a 3D movie the 3D works with AND without perscription glasses (except without glasses everything is blurry -- damn eyeballs!)
Straws you grasp at. EDIT: @ Lovable LOL @ sensitive. If you were familiar with any of Soda's comments and viewpoints, you would've kept quiet. Now, you wouldn't know that simply b/c you've been a member 1 day, so take a break from playing defense attorney.
He's just asking...no need to get sensitive geez
Fair question being that people who play games and watch movies wear glasses. Not every thing has to be a jab at Sony.
Yeah, that'd suck.
Makes perfect sense, HD doesn't work well on TVs that small so there's no reason why 3D would work better.
wait a minute my phones got a bigger screen. I didnt really think it made sense to have a 20" 3d screen just like i dont see the point of a 20" 1080p screen...why bother. I understand people who will have an issue with pc monitors kinda but for me its gotta be 42 minimum for your primary next gen gaming.
"my phones got a bigger screen." Are you serious!? Your phone must be huge!! An iPad is 9", a laptop is 13" and your phone has a bigger screen than that!? What do you carry it in? A car? Wow lol. But seriously the average bedroom screen is from 16"-26". So this won't be a major problem for film 3D which you will likely watch in your living room, but for gaming 3D, which most do in their bedroom this will be automatic fail. It really is starting to look like Sony just wants to sell its big 3DTV. I really can't see 3D gaming ever taking off for the average gamer.
at those who really took that seriously what i was serious about was the size for 1080p and 3d tvs to be worth it. I think 20" is too small.
It would stand to reason that if you have the money to buy a 3DTV then you have the money to buy a big 3DTV.
i went into best buy and saw a 3DTV i really don't like it compare to the fancy HDTV's i saw and plus i do not want to wear glasses while playing videogames it will make me feel like a idiot if i had loads of cash i would get a nice 42 inch HDTV with 1080p support and thats really all ill need but the 3DS is another story though you don't need 3D glasses with that device infact they said it will look better with the 3D effect off.
This is actually one of the reasons why I will not have a 3DTV, my room is only big enough realistically for a 32" HDTV, 42" is just too big for my room, so untill there are 32" 3DTVs around, I can't really get one. And if it isn't going to work aswell on a 32" then it's not worth getting anyway
hmm works well on the 3DS
PlayStation Boys will settle for nothing less than Huge TV's
20 inches? Word has it 2D looks rather small on 20 inch TVs, even though it works.
the worse those sub-hd resolutions look.....so sony, how about making a new console.....xbox, you too, cause your most recent release, kane and lynch whatever it's subtitle is runs in 1024x600....that a lower resolution than one of these...... http://www.topmic.com/m781s... thats what sony should be telling people to game on...xbox too....cause that's the type of quality you get from them..... this monitor above is actually a little too good for lot's of console releases, so sony, stfu, make some aaa games that actually do 1080p
Ridiculous, most of us are playing on 40" or more, but not like nerds playing pc monitors the nose on the screen !
well am ok i have nothin smaller then 27" :D
32inch please? that's the perfect size tv for my room,I hope they make them soon.
I second that. mate.
