GamerFitNation's BlackBible got a chance to Interview Abby Senior PR specialist for Playstation hardware about PlayStation's 3D display.
No sound on the video...sucks
the sound is good, but something about the video, is that a whore?
HHG gained some LBS?
lol Racist much? haha j/k Anyway, this display does look nice. I do wish it was around the 32" inch size instead of a mere 24" though.
I think he has a point. HHG always says the same thing and kisses the people arse that he is interviewing just to get free swag.
@blumatt i would also prefer a 32"+ display, but ithink they are trying to introduce 3D to those who dont have thousands of pounds (dollars for you yanks =P) and lots of space to place a huge TV. There are already Bravia TV's along with pretty much every other big TV manufacturer fighting in the 32"+ 3D department. Was a very clever idea actually, they literally have no competition in that display size catagory for 3D.
How was his comment racist?
@TheFaceless And that's the problem. I'm not really poor, but sure as hell I'm not rich, HDTVs cost a lot of money in Brazil (for reference, today a 42" 3DTV with passive shutters runs around R$4500, that's around 2800US$) and I live on a small apartment right now. So I probably apply to the demographics Sony is aiming for. Making a cheaper 3D TV to get people into 3D is a great idea and one I'm looking for. But if you are making it to people with limited budget they sure as hell are not going to have multiple high quality HDTVs laying around their house... If they are going to spend that kind of money, they want it to shine on their living room. The bedroom can do with a SDTV in order to save for the living room. My first HDTV was a 32" 720p LCD without the digital TV sintonizer in 2007. I could had bought a smaller TV with better features but I didn't wanted a TV smaller for a room where I entertain friends. Now I just bought a new TV, a 32" non-3D 1080p LED with plenty of features, I could have waited for the incoming smaller 3DTVs that may come at similar price, but I decided to just stick to my TV for sometime, awaiting for living room sized 3DTVs to further come down in price. Now we could argue about space and what each individual likes in his room. Personally I'm kind of methodic, even if it could fit my budget, I'm avoiding a 42" right now because it's too big for my living room. Obviously I'm just as methodic for a smaller TV, 32" is just the right size for my sofa sitting 7~8ft apart from the TV. But don't really matter how small someone's apartment is or what's his taste, I'm yet to see people using 24" HDTVs on their main TV room. As I said, I'll try to hold my current TV... But I'm about to move out for a bigger house and I really want to play Team Ico Collection and The Last Guardian in 3D, so I don't know for how long I'll hold myself, but one thing I know for sure, I'm not investing on a small 3DTV before I get a big 3DTV.
this guy is actually funny and not like HHG acting all 'gangster' and stuff
My mind will be blown when other parts of my body can be blown.
You're exactly 2 hours late dude, Derek-Flint beat you to the joke. Sorry.
Yeah, too bad there's not a bubble down option for "Late to the Party" or "Unoriginal Joke". lol
You expect me to read comments not directed to me? Sorry...I typically read articles.
He's was trying so hard to not look at her boobs lol
Yes you are correct Sir
As would any man in the same situation, that is involuntary... we can't help it, so women should just take it as a compliment, you can bet they would be more pissed off if we didn't check them out! ....I also think he failed in trying not to look a few times as well.... but hey, it's the thought that counts! ;)
it would.....if it wasn't so tiny, ill stick with my normal tv
Personally for someone like me this is just this just the right price for me.
Na get a 3d projector or a 32-42in 3dtv for 500, this is WAY expensive and WAY too small.
i want atleast a 32 inch or bigger tv n this bundle
Im getting this next year.
Yeah right, I can get a bigger 3d TV for about $700, a 42" to be exact
That does multiple 3D outputs simultaneously to different viewers at the same time? No? Didn't think so.
HUMMMM, A 42" OR HAVE SOME ASS NEXT TO ME HAVING MULTIPLE 3D ON A 24" 42", 24" 42",24" DO MATH THE SMART GUY, QUALITY VS. QUANTITY.
Yes, the QUALITY is a monitor giving out TWO FULL-SCREEN IMAGES to TWO DIFFERENT VIEWERS at once. And how freaking ignorant can you be? How many times do people have to state that it's for places a 42" wouldn't fit?
Sorry, I'm gonna have to agree with L6RD7BLU3 on this one. I'd much rather have a 42" 3D LED HDTV at 1080p than some 24" 3D HDTV that gives two 3D pictures so someone else can play. That really doesn't constitute owning such a tiny screen (large computer monitor sized at most) for a $500 pricetag and a game that might not even be that great. Also, it only comes with a single pair of glasses, so add another $50-$70 or so to that just to justify owning that thing. Also, this isn't even a freaking TV! Which really hurts it's pricetag. It's simply a 3D display, which should make it a lot cheaper than what it is currently.
It doesn't provide separate 3D video to multiple viewers, when showing different views for each viewer it's in 2D. This just provides a better "split screen" than actually splitting the screen. It's a great idea but as it's only a 24" screen it's no bigger than traditional split screen on my 50" tv. The one advantage is that you can't see each others screen so you can't see what the other player is doing.
UM the ps 3dtv cant output 3d to different people. It can do full screen NON-3d to different people but not 3d.
split screen is cool. perfect for your children that game. i cant spoil my kid with a big screen,,,,just sayin. but there is definetly a market for this tv, and i can see the screen size getting bigger and cheaper over the years
For all you people hating on this and saying 42 inch blah blah for $700. You do know this comes with a game, hdmi cable AND a glasses right? Also if you play a coop game splitscreen on a 42 inch tv what size is the screen for each person becomes? 21"? And what if it is not top down and its side to side? Then it is not even widescreen! Just stop hating before you sound like fools. For me I already have a 52 inch XBR 3d tv so this would go well for my computer.
WTF...The huge selling feature of this they kept talking about was the split screeen co op play and they only include 1 set of glasses. I sometimes wonder who in the hell makes the decisions around there sometimes. A 32 tv would be acceptable in a bedroom perhaps a small living room, the 26 inch is a computer monitor. I think a lot more people would be coaxed into that deal if the tv was bigger. No way I can convince the wife into getting this to sample it, not at that price at least Drop it another hundred and we will talk.
I agree about the 1 set of glasses as well, I even told her off camera if they were going to do that, might as well called priced it at $570. You know you're going to need at least 2 glasses. As for the size understand the decision from a business stand point. It's about risk... Think about this you invest creating a larger Montoir you'll have to pay a ton to produce and if no one buys it that a major lost. Also take note that if you can't use the monitor for something other then a PS3 pretty much you bought a giant paper weight taking up living room space. With the current display size of this monitor and it's functionality, it's perfect. See the problem with 3D tv's is that they are expensive. on top of that you may already own a HDTV. having this smaller montier is good for that one 3D Bluray movie you want to watch on PS3.
Guys This so far is not only the cheapest thing to a 3d TV but it allows you to play on the same screen with out slipt screen. Plus this is perfect if you have a small room. Also truth be told this is perfect for College students and children. Still I personally would stick to a 40" but if I had the money I'd by this on the side to keep if I wanted to watch something in 3d.
http://www.walmart.com/ip/V... Vizio 32"LCD 3d tv...its got 2 hdmi outs, multiple hookups, cable jack, wi fi, ethernet port, 2 glasses and web apps...its $478.00 add 50-60 for resistance 3. 528 bucks before any sort of amazon type deals for a 32" Like I said, it wouldnt be bad for a hundred bucks cheaper but you still have to buy another pair of glasses.
"it allows you to play on the same screen with out slipt screen." PAY ATTENTION. Additionally, I don't know if you were listening, but this is apparently not a TV, but an HD Display.
no shit sherlock...which is why I put the link up to a better value of an actual tv, not just a freaking monitor. The TV is a HD display as well. Side by side viewing of different images during co-op. Didn't realize I had to point out the obvious. Is that better? If you are gonna be a douchebag and talk slick pay attention to what you write as well, and learn how to spell.....numb nuts. (SPLIT)
Heck, I got a 51" Samsung 3D Plasma the other day on sale for 1000 bucks with 2 glasses....There's better deals out there as I just think that display is too small of a size for 3D to really be effective. I could be wrong I guess
You are wrong. :P As I have 24" 3D display (best money could buy) with NVIDIA 3D Vision, and everybody who has tested this set says its better than the effect movie theater can give and our movie theater was just recently built and it has XpanD 3D equipment. Anyway 24" is great experience. I actually even play more PlayStation 3 on the monitor than I do on my 42" plasma.
I am happy with a 55" LG 3dtv, sadly I rarely use the feature though.
I don't like active shutterglasses so when i upgrade it's probably gonna be to a tv with passive glasses. That also allows my mates to view the 3d alongside me :p.. But I really like the idea of this. I hope they integrate the "full screen split screen" into more 3d tvs :P and ones with passive glasses.
Yeah. I think they'll start with this. And then, in the future, bring out bigger tv models of this with this feature. As Sony have said they are aiming this at college people or poeple in bedrooms who can't have the luxury off big tv's. This is great for me for example!
I will be getting one on day one . Anybody know of UK release date ? . I see the display as a great introductory step into the world of 3d . It's a bit of a mine field with 3d tv's at the moment . Which do you get , active , passive , plasma or lcd ? . It should have come with two pairs of glasses though . No doubt us in UK will get stiffed on price again . So 499 usd works out at 305 pounds but I bet they will round it upto 399 English pounds . If you do Sony , make sure it comes with two pairs of glasses !! .
please tell me this is releasing in europe??????/
Sony- please release a bigger TV that does multiple 3D outputs. This tech is genius and I would gladly spend £1k+ on a bigger TV (preferably 42").
Lame. It's not even a real TV. Only works with Sony products and nothing else. I'm waiting for glasses free 3DTVs to come out at an affordable price then I'll consider upgrading. :)
No, It's a monitor yes but you're wrong about it only working with Sony products. You could hook up you'r cable box for cable tv and it will work fine, same with any pc's, ANY. I don't see what's wrong with it being not a tv.... I don't know one person who doesn't own a cable box set... I will connect my virign box to this. And it will work fine.
You should do some research on glasses free 3D, then come back. There is a reason why glasses free 3D ain't as popular as with glasses. Let me make few points why it aren't as good: Viewing angles can be so bad that only one person can see the 3D effect, 3D effect doesn't pop out of the screen as it only goes inside, even that is minor effect.
bet it cost thrice the amount in uk , we always get*uck*in ripped off!
Nice, but too small. They need to make a 42" model.
42'' is too small 150'' 3d projector is only true way to enjoy 3d gaming to its max.
True but a projector won't be able to replicate the technology embedded in this TV. Personally, a projector is what I use in my entertainment room and a smaller 32" LED-LCD display in my bedroom. Now I can't imagine gaming on a tiny 24inch display even if wearing two glasses for two players means an individual display. 42 simply makes more sense when buying an HD display.
More like BLOWING OUT MY ASS!
SONY make.believe babe!!! psn: cedaridge /xbl: cedaridge
They need a 55"
its a small tv
I would like this as a replacement for my 22" once the price drops. A decent monitor to see 3D boobs and blockbuster movies right at the desk.
