The lights are on
Sony hopes to make 3D gaming more accessible to the masses with its affordable PlayStation 3D Display, a 24-inch 3D television aimed at the college crowd. To sweeten the deal, the company just announced that those who pre-order the unit will receive an added bonus -- a copy of Insomniac's Resistance 3.The unit retails for $499.99, and includes a pair of universal PlayStation 3D glasses, MotorStorm Apocalypse on Blu-ray, and an HDMI cable, meaning you'll have all the accessories you need to start 3D gaming right out of the box. Another interesting feature of the unit is its ability to display two full-screen (2D) HD images at once. Basically, if you and a friend are both wearing PlayStation 3D glasses (an extra pair retails separately for $69.99), you can both see completely different images on the same screen -- a definite step up from traditional splitscreen.Interestingly, Resistance 3 was initially planned to be the pack-in game (as revealed when the TV was first announced at E3), but it was then replaced with MotorStorm Apocalypse. Now, to get Resistance 3 as a bonus, you'll have to pre-order the 3D Display by September 30, 2011. This new video details all the features of the PlayStation 3D display.

Matt this is 3d tech to get excited about. This is worthwhile where as 3ds, eh, not so much. But yeah I saw that video and it screamed instant buy. Finally found a TV worthy to take up the mantle of my legendary Samsung GXtv.
I could use another TV... If I had the money I would definitely be considering this now. But I'm not sure I care about 3D or if I can even see it with my messed up eyes..
3d seems cool in theory, but other than a couple of games, i'd never use 3d for anything. Mainly because the 3d movies they make now are just really bad, and i have a feeling killed the 3d craze
You're kinda slow with the gaming news:
now i know what i gonna buy for holydays yeahh
Couldn't care less about all this 3D stuff, just a bunch of gimmick to me. That being said I'm definitly grabbing Resistance 3. No bundle for me though, already have 2 PS3's (fixed one i thought was broken).
