Sony 3D Display To Launch November 13
 
 

Sony's cool 3D "TV" that also allows multiplayer gamers to see different images on the same screen, will be available in the US next month.

It is arguably the best value for anyone who's looking to move into the 3D revolution.

The 24-inch 3D Display is not an actual TV; it has no built-in TV tuner. But since no one actually watches TV with an antenna anymore, it's kind of a moot point.

So for $500, consumers will get the 24-inch flat-panel display, a pair of 3D glasses, an HDMI cable, and a copy of the 3D-optimized game Motorstorm Apocalypse.

In addition, the coolest feature of the 3D Display is its "SimulView" feature, which requires gamers to buy an extra pair of 3D glasses. Then, if you get together with a friend and each put on a pair of glasses, the display will be different for each player.

It works by replacing the traditional function of 3D glasses from taking two simultaneous images and mapping them on top of each other, to instead creating two completely separate images and emitting each one to one pair of glasses at a time.

Currently, Motorstorm Apocalypse along with Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 3, and Super Stardust HD support Simulview mode.

If you're still unsure as to whether or not a 3D display is worth it, Sony has kept a list of 3D-compatible PS3 games here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
