PlayStation’s 3D Display Hits This Weekend, Watch the Full Tour

Abby Reyes's Avatar + Posted by Abby Reyes on Nov 11, 2011 // Sr. PR Specialist, Hardware

Hi everyone! It’s officially dark at 6pm and the crisp, woodsy smell in the air lets me know that the holidays are just around the corner. With so many great 3D-compatible titles, such as UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception, Batman Arkham City, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations, recently launched and coming, there’s no shortage of 3D entertainment on the PS3 system this holiday season. That being said, the 3D Display is sure to be a hit under the tree, so we thought we’d give you all a personalized tour of the product.

Featuring a luminous 24” LCD screen with full HD 1080p 3D presentation, the 3D Display delivers an incredible high-definition stereoscopic 3D experience, offering best-in-class visuals in both 2D and 3D for all of you gamers. As our first official gaming display, the 3D Display is enhanced for gaming with SimulView, a special feature that allows you to view individual, unique, full-screen images of gameplay in two-player mode.

We’re very excited to be able to deliver a comprehensive 3D package at an affordable price. We firmly believe that 3D games will lead the charge into 3D adoption and this bundle arrives when great 3D games are launching. The 3D Display bundle is available at a retailer near you for $499.99 (MSRP). It includes the 3D Display, a copy of MotorStorm Apocalypse, one pair of PlayStation 3D Glasses, and an HDMI cable. The 3D Glasses will also be available separately for $69.99 MSRP.

What 3D titles have you played? Are you excited about SimulView? Let us know!

I was wondering if SimulView split-screen mode is supported by Uncharted 3?

I was just looking up to see if I can find a Black Friday Deal, my birthday is tomorrow and I’d like this but not do-able this week. it’s a good deal though.

lol WalMart has a 42″ Vizio 3DTV for $598 on black friday, that comes with 4 glasses. And you want people to spend $500 for a 24″? What a joke.

I wonder if the SimulView support is the cause of the excessive ghosting in Uncharted 3.

Introducing: THE ONLINE PASS! and other such features! it a revoloutionary way to mess with people who dont have the money to buy every single game brand new! how it works is, all the average joes buy a game used, and then… THEY DONT GET THE FULL CONTENT! woo! how epic is that! only… it isnt… its just a way to spong more money off of people who dont have it… i recently got all 4 one and was excited to play online with my friends, beat it on singleplayer to find…. i couldnt go online… WHAT?! the biggest and only feature of the game, locked because i didnt buy new.

Wait What happened to Resistance 3? I totally pre-ordered this because I was under the impression that I would be able to get that game as a bonus? This is total BS, Yes, I am still going to purchase the TV. Seems to me there was some false advertising here. _I’m Not Happy Sony_

+ NeoHumpty on November 11th, 2011 at 10:28 am said:

I don’t know about the Vizio, but LG’s Cinama 3D looks fantastic in person. I thought it would look bad like in theaters, too, until I looked at one at Best Buy. No way am I going for a set up with shutter glasses after sampling that. The effects looked great.

And, yeah, this display is far too small for a console.

THE 3D T IS SUPER TEMPTING..BUT THE SIZE IS WHATS HOLDING ME BACK.I WOULD BE EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED IF THEY DECIDE TO RELEASE A 3D TV WITH A BIGGER SCREEN A FEW MONTHS LATER.SO I WILL DO WHAT IVE BIN DOING LATELY WITH SONY AND THIER PRODUCTS..AND PLAY THE WAITING GAME..AND IF THEY DONT RELEASE A 32 INCH SIZE OR BIGGER THEN I WILL JUST GET THIS ONE AT A LOW PRICE ..ITS A WIN WIN SITUATION FOR ME :)

+ LordIncubus on November 11th, 2011 at 10:36 am said:

@angel78556 It is not a developers fault that companies like Gamestop, and bestbuy are taking advantage of game developers by not shareing the profits they recoup from selling their used games. There are two major arguments here.

1. Developers need to create games with continues content releases in order to insure consumers will continue to enjoy a game they shell out $60 big ones for. (more in other countries)

2. Developers need to come up with a contract with games distributes like Gamestop and Best buy that holds them accountable to sharing their profits on used games with the developers. When you see articles on how Gamestop is stating revenue growth of 30% YoY its because of all the used games they sell to you guys without having to pay a dime other than their own employees who restock the game.

It’s a hard subject because eventually if a contract is reached that mean Gamestop will most likely start giving us less for the games we give them back.

Abby, I had to go whole hog & get the best, the Bravia Hx929. I played some ICO & U3 on it, & really, so beautiful, so popping off the screen. I am looking forward to more games, such as next week’s AC:Rev. I haven’t watched a 3d movie on it, yet.

i bought a 46″ Sony Bravia tv NX711 series (full 1080p 3D) last year. It came with two 2 glasses, sync, playstation 3 160gb, controller, 3 games and 2 movies.. I spent a little over $2,000 with the insurance. It was a pretty sweet bundle but they didnt offer the simulview yet which I think is pretty cool considering the fact that playing two player split screen on the same tv always sucked lol.
My only regret was not getting a 50″ =)

thats the most dissapointing thing ive heard yet in 3d… my XBR cant support something a $500 display can….

Hey Abby, is there any news to distribute this outside of EEUU?
I’m currently living outside of the country and I was planing to get a Bravia 3D soon to replace my current LCD, but with this, I can focus this monitor to gaming only and the other to watch movies with my fiancee (she plays too also, lucky me).

Hope you can answer me.

Thanks for the news.

Hey abby, will there be any larger PS 3D tv’s in the future. 24 inch is rather small for my room


33

+ SpecDotSign on November 11th, 2011 at 1:35 pm said:

The size doesn’t bug me at all. It’s ideal for gaming. Just look at the tv’s they use for tournaments. With that being said, what’s the lag time on this display? I’m currently looking for a 2ms lag (maximum) for games like Battlefield, SSF4 and Ultimate MvC 3. Anyone know if this is a good set for that kind of gaming, or should I just go with an Asus monitor?

+ Buchi1324 on November 11th, 2011 at 1:46 pm said:

this would be nice but id rather have bigger come out with at least a 40 inch with simulview and ill be happy and will buy

+ ASSHAT222 on November 11th, 2011 at 2:11 pm said:

Will there a larger model out in the near future. I currently have a 32″ HD (not 3D), that I want to upgrade but a 24″ seems like a downgrade. I would totally purchase if it will be 40″ or above. Also is the HDMI cable different than the HDMI cable I use currently? How do I know which HDMI is the best fit for when I upgrade to 3D?


36

+ BuchNasty on November 11th, 2011 at 2:16 pm said:

@34 Asus sucks.. they should stick to MOBOs and thats all. You sound like you should be a pc gamer if you care about minute junk like that. There’s not any real latency in a tv…. it’s not like a wireless mouse were it will affect the gameplay. Just get a tv with a good picture and keep the nerd core stuff for the pc gamers… i beg you. (PC gaming is the worst community for gaming hands down.)

I hope this sells well, I would like to see a 50″ or maybe even 55″ that takes advantage of SimulView.

Sony should look into making it a feature for their future 3D Bravia TV’s. It could be a nice perk and used as a way to market the Sony and PlayStation family brand and whatnot.

+ Windxtravelerx on November 11th, 2011 at 7:17 pm said:

@12 You didn’t know that All 4 One needed Online Pass? You should search for more info before “buying” your games. And what’s the difference between a brand new game and a used one like, for example, Uncharted 3, that just got released? 15-20 dollars? I mean, it’s not a big deal. If you have the $$$ then support the developers and buy a new copy. Maybe you should stop subscribing the Playstation Plus service for some time and save money to buy new games.
