3D Display Pre-Order Offer includes Resistance 3

Kim Nguyen's Avatar + Posted by Kim Nguyen on Aug 29, 2011 // Marketing Manager, PlayStation 3

The PlayStation 3D Display we unveiled at E3 has been getting plenty of buzz, and I wanted to let you all know about a special pre-order offer that’s now available at retailers nationwide: If you pre-order the bundle – which includes the 24-inch 3D Display, one pair of universal PlayStation 3D glasses, MotorStorm Apocalypse on Blu-ray, and an HDMI cable – you’ll also receive a copy of Resistance 3 on Blu-ray. We’re excited to offer all of this for $499.99, and you’ll need to place your pre-orders by Sept. 30, 2011.

Check out the video below to learn all about the 3D Display that is launching in November.

The brilliant, ultrathin, 24” LED 3D Display is enhanced for gaming with SimulView technology, delivering individual full HD screen action to each player in two-player mode. Key product specs include:

  • Full HD 1080p resolution and 240hz refresh rate for ultra-smooth play
  • 3 HD inputs (2 HDMI and 1 component) so you can hook up your PS3, cable TV box, and PC
  • Built-in speakers and subwoofer for a more immersive audio experience.

With the 3D Display pre-order offer and so many amazing titles coming to PS3 in 3D this holiday, like Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection, and more, now is the time to jump into 3D gaming.

Since the 3D-Display does not ship until after Resistance 3 ships…if I pre-order now, when will I get Resistance 3?

hey #4 a 40 FOOT model indeed would be awesome. but i think the 2 games included might just push me over the line to get this. i need a tv for upstairs and this size would work awesomely.

I game on my projector w/ screen, 24″ is just too small for me to even consider. I imagine this would be perfect for college dorms and small-sized closet game rooms.

I am so excited for this I have watched it like 4 times now. 2 Free games, the 3D TV, 3D glasses that will work with other Sony 3D TV’s and possible others, NICE~!

Wished I could watch or play games in 3D, but unfortunately for me, I will not be able to. I am half blind with one good eye only. :-( But I am quite happy that you guys who have two good eyes can see them…

@13, Sorry to hear that, Maybe some day the tech companies will figure out a way to trick just one eye into seeing 3D images.

@13, your not alone, about 10% of the populace is stereoscopic blind, and another 30ish% get severe headaches when viewing the current 3D technology, not including children 6 and under that shouldn’t be using it to begin with. SO 40-45% of the buying population won’t use a technology that every company is constantly pushing… including myself.

That and 24″ is tiny for a TV.

Would actually love to have it as a PC monitor.

24″ is too small for me. I mean, I have a 40″ Sony Bravia and the only think I thought after I installed it was: “My god, I thought it was way bigger…”. So I’ll pass on the 24″ display, even if the multiplayer tech is WAY TOO COOL! lol. I’d love to have this tech on my current TV with a software patch and additionnal glasses, that would rock!!

Why is the screen so incredibly small? Standard HD televisions should be like 32 inches right?

@9 A couple months ago, they quietly changed the bundle. They took out Resistance and put in Motorstorm. Cause a bit of an uproar on Amazon. A lot of people (myself included) dropped their pre-orders cause really, it was only a good deal if you wanted the bundled game. Looks like they have corrected their error, and sweetened the deal a bit. I’m still out, though. I was on the fence about the size, and now that my pre-order has been canceled, I don’t think I could place it again.

I also agree with everyone who is talking about the screen size..its way too small..even to put in my bedroom..replacing my 32 in the bedroom with a 24 is going to be disappointing. I hope they are working on bigger sizes with the same great 3d features.I will be waiting :p

It’s not even a TV, it’s a “display”. Glad I bought a 32″ Sony HDTV last month for only $378. $500 for a 3D display? No thanks…..

Thanks in advance!

Hey, this simulview isnt anything new is it?

Is it the same as dual view?

Dont all 3DTV’s have dual view?

My 61″, RGB LED, 3DTV has dual view and its 4yr old already, LOL.

I thought the selling point was two full HD 3D screens.

Do any games even support Simulview? AKA dual view???

Always nice to have hardware technology that no software supports, good ol Sony.

Can anyone name a single game that can use this Simul/dual view?

So the two Image snd to the simulview glasses are on 2D? Then why is named PlayStation 3D? Te 3D mode is only for one player?

Now I think that 500$ for a two player display it isn’t so Cheap after all…(even with two games)


47

+ Phillyblunz on August 29th, 2011 at 11:19 am said:

Imagine two people squeezing together in front of this thing, I foresee some black eyes from flyin elbows.

So it looks like this Simulview just takes the split screen image and stretches it out to fill the whole screen, I imagine this would either require some massive cropping or severe aspect ratio errors.
Also that means the “full HD” each person see’s is only upscaled, couple that with the fact that these games arent even 1080p native resolution to begin with(most are 720p), and in split screen the resolution is generally half the native resolution(Standard definition everyone).

Combine this with the fact that no one wants to wear 3D glases to watch standard def 2D, and you truely have a winner.

Basically the Simulview is terribly gimmicky, and explains the super small size, due to blowing up a standard definition image to full screen.

So you are left with a small 240hz 3DTV, fit for a single person sitting within 5 feet.

I bet the 3D is fantastic and the screen wont lag much due to small size, but I hope they dont trick too many people with this “Simulview” tactic.


48

+ butcherknife on August 29th, 2011 at 11:24 am said:

TV size is relative to how close you are to the TV. For a 42-inch TV, sit ~10 feet away…for a 24-inch T, sit only a few feet away. The “apparent” size is the same.


49

+ Phillyblunz on August 29th, 2011 at 11:27 am said:

But I hope this means I can try out the “dual view” feature of my tv now.

If this simulview ever gets coded support by any games (Which it probably wont knowing Sony’s track record)

Remember the Guncon 3? Of course you dont, it was only supported by a single game, the game it came with.
It was actually a better gun configuration then the Sharpshooter, and has dual analogs allowing you to look right while aiming left(which you cant do with Move).

Any comment?

I just want to send a HUGE thank you to you guys for developing this product! I game at my desk and need to use my display for computer and other devices in addition to my PS3. I’ve been searching for a 24″ 3D display that would work for everything; and they are impossible to find.

This is EXACTLY the product I want. Plus I get two great games I would have bought anyway; which is like a $120 discount! I just placed my pre-order at Amazon.
