Recently announced was that the 3D display would include Motorstorm apocalypse rather than Resistance 3. Now, Amazon is offering Resistance 3 for free if you pre order the display.

Also Valid at gamestop: http://www.gamestop....9#bonusFeatures

Guys - They are including Resistance 3 as Sony basically will send off shovelware to make profit (Motorstorm ain't shovelware but not AAA..)
AMAZON is still including Resistance 3 though as it was a promise initially...so yeah stop flaming.

Still undecided on this. Would be cool to watch some 3D moves I guess, and does anyone know if it would work with the 360 as well?

Cmon.


24" 3DTV with 1 AAA game that isn't out yet and one game that hasn't been under $30 yet***

Hence why I said undecided but good job being a pretentious cock against someone who actually will help some college students who have small dorms.

Once more - thanks OP for the heads up.

The deal Is that its Amazon and gs are still going to include resistance 3 even though Sony replaced it with motor storm. Resistance 3 is obviously the better game and other places carrying the 3dtv bundle with not have Resistance 3, therefor you are getting a deal (unless you prefer motorstorm over resistance 3) when you order from amazon and gs. It wouldn't be a deal if you just bought it with motor storm.

Lots of ignorance in this thread. Thank you OP for pointing out the deal!

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

Gonna pre order this. 24" is perfect for gaming in my dorm. I already have a 40" LCD back at home, so there really is no point in buying another large TV which I'll never use compared to this one since it's going to be used exclusively for gaming. Also, if the 3D really is gimmicky or it doesn't turn out to be all that great for me, I'll just return it or resell it and keep the games (maybe saving some money that way too).

Also, Active 3D. Don't see this much in TV's anymore as they are all passive. It's the more expensive, better quality version.

It comes with resistance 3, it's not a bonus.



IT IS a bonus. The 3DTV comes with Motorstorm Apocalypse. Sony changed it. Now Amazon is giving Resistance 3 for free along with Motorstorm Apocalypse.

If this is the 3d tv that Sony showcased at E3 then I'm somewhat intrigued. Yes it has 3d like other sets but what sets it apart from the others is that it can display a separate 3d image to each pair of glasses. Two people can view full screen 3d gameplay instead of splitscreen.

If I can play games while my wife watches sitcoms at the same time I'm all for it. Just needs to be at least 32"

Is the 3D similar to the real3D in theaters? If so, wouldn't that naturally entail a higher price for the size offered, or am I missing something here?

This won't display two 3D screens in split screen, it just displays 2D splitscreen in fullscreen. In fact this technology isn't anything new. I am not sure how wide-spread it is, but it is not new.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Thank you for the video, that splitscreen thing is really awesome, now I'm definitely preordering this!

The split screen feature is cool. But still think a bit expensive for 24".

Are you talking about this: (or something along these lines?) http://www.bestbuy.c...6&skuId=2135072


Your comparing a 51" 720P Samsung Plasma (that is outdated and very low end) passive 3d display.

The 24" is 1080p ACTIVE 3D Display WITH active 3D glasses (which will retail for $70), includes TWO games (which will probably be retail $80 - 100 around the release of this TV), and an HDMI cable.

So lets say:

Playstation 3D Display 24" - $330 - $350ish
Resistance 3 - $50 or $60
Motorstorm - $20 or $30
3D Glasses - $70
HDMI Cable - $10

For those unfamiliar with the difference between active and passive:

Passive 3D essentially splits the resolution of the 3d images in half, and uses two different lenses.

Active 3D, on the other hand, has technology in the glasses, and keeps full resolution of the 3D image on screen. The glasses repeatedly blink back and forth (very very fast) to give you a full resolution 3D image.

More tv's now a days are using Passive since it's cheaper, but Active is truly the best for quality.

I personally have no intentions on buying a 3D TV, although i cannot deny this a a great deal for an active 3d television.

Not comparing at all. Guy was asking if u can get a 3d tv for $400. Im not interested in 3d, nver used it for that. And it was the PN50C490. Bought it maybe 6 months ago, I thought it was outdated back then, so no surprise it's outdated now haha
