Aussies spending up big on 3D TVs


Australians are buying thousands of 3D TVs a week and they are expected to be a hot item this Christmas as studios and game publishers prepare to release a slew of new 3D content.


Video games are also expected to be a major driver of 3D, led by the Sony PlayStation 3. PS3 owners received two firmware upgrades earlier this year enabling 3D games and 3D movie playback.


Sony Australia said the following 3D titles were "coming soon": The Fight, The Sly Collection, Gran Turismo 5, MotorStorm Apocalypse, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Killzone 3, Tron Evolution, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Solider, Mortal Kombat, Crysis 2 and Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection.


Buyers of Sony 3D TVs receive a PlayStation 3, two 3D movies, four 3D games and 3D glasses.

The story is too old to be commented.

I remember reading an article in the 90s that said Australians were always progressive when it came to new technology.

Weird random fact: I'm pretty sure Australia was the only english speaking nation to get the Sega SG-1000 back in the early 80s.

They're one step ahead! Glass-less 3d will be a long time coming, the quality of the 3d image is poor and the screens are tiny at the moment.
Already got mine its beautiful and looking forward to more PS3 games and
Nvidia 3dTVplay which will provide me with limitless 3d pc gaming :D

After seeing the 3D TV's myself several times now it is still no where near the quality for me to spend that kind of money.

They are already talking glass-less 3D coming in a year and when the max size is 47" it's more like looking out a 3D window. Unless it fills your entire field of view for me it just makes it weird. Nothing like watching the 3D and then have the edges cut off because the TV is so small. That kills the effect for me.

I love the idea of 3D however.
