PS3 3D Display Debuting in the Fall

PS3 3D Display Debuting in the Fall

by Charles PowersAugust 7, 2011

News came across the wire that the PlayStation 3-branded 3D display which was unveiled at E3 this year has been featured on Amazon as well as Target.

The 24″ 3D set displays in 1080p, 240 Hz, and has a backlit HD LED display. It will include a HDMI cable, a pair of 3D glasses, and a copy of MotorStorm Appocalpse.

Now, a lot of sites are reporting this to be an actual television, and they are blatantly wrong, as the display does not include a TV tuner.

“Turn any bedroom, den, or office into a 3D entertainment power suite with the best-in-class PlayStation® 3D Display. The brilliant 24” ultra-slim LED screen delivers all of your HD media by connecting to your PS3™ system, cable TV box, and PC, while built-in speakers and subwoofer fill out the audio experience. Specially enhanced for gaming, SimulView™ technology delivers individual full HD screen action to each player in two-player mode, putting players deeper in the game. Quicker refresh rates keep gameplay continuous and smooth. And with the universal* PlayStation® 3D Glasses and MotorStorm: Apocalypse Game included, true 3D immersion is ready right out of the box. Enter a new dimension of gaming with true PlayStation® 3D.”

[box_dark]What’s the primary difference between a display and TV? The primary difference between a display and a TV is that a TV has an integrated TV tuner. A TV tuner is needed when connecting directly to a TV antenna oranalog cable via a coaxial cable. When connecting to digital cable or satellite TV, a cable TV box is provided by your television service provider. With a display, you can watch TV by simply connecting your cable TV box via an HDMI or component input.[/box_dark]

No word of the relationship with the Resistance 3 3D TV bundle as of yet. The TV is slated to be on shelves on November 26th 2011.

Have you purchased a 3D TV yet and need a cable service to go with it? The latest Direct TV deals are a great service to add to your new 3D TV and what they have to offer for pricing is unbelievable.

    I have plugged in my pc to my Sony 3D Tv and I can’t seem to get the Side-by-side option to work. I have tried it via usb (with smaller media files) on my bluray player and tv, it works, but not when I hook up my PS3 or my desktop for larger files to the Tv. Can someone please help? Thank you.

    I am considering buying a 3d tv and I have an xbox. I know that some ps3 games can do two player full screen (where each player has a different pair of 3d glasses and sees their own full screen). Can xbox do this too?

    I have a 42 inch Vizio 3d tv. And everytime I want to play a 3d video game or watch a 3d movie, I am not able to turn on the game mode. It won’t even let me select it. With out it on, it make my 3d games lag and gives my 3d movies that soap opera effect that I hate. Any way to fix the problem? Thanks.
