The show stealer at Sony’s E3 event was undoubtedly the PlayStation Vita. However, the Japanese entertainment behemoth had quite a few other neat surprises in store for us. One of them was the PlayStation 3D display bundle.
3D TVs are nothing new, and have been quite the rage for the past couple of years. However, one thing that has been keeping them from going mainstream is affordability, or the lack of it. The new 24 inch PlayStation 3D TV is Sony’s attempt at tackling this problem. It’s mainly targeted at gamers who want to experience the benefits of 3D, but can’t afford the high end displays with bigger screens.
It also has a unique 2D multiplayer mode. When enabled, the active shutter glasses will present two entirely different images to two different players, thus eliminating the need for split-screen view in multiplayer games. The glasses will feature a button for toggling between ‘Player 1’ and ‘Player 2’ views.
The PlayStation 3D TV bundle will include a pair of active shutter 3D glasses, HDMI cable, and a copy of the 3D game Resistance 3. The whole bundle will be available for a very decent $499, with the bundled freebies alone costing in excess of $150.
