Are the 3D TVs worth playing videogames and watching movies on? Will amazon sell them on bf?


It's a cool feature. There are some movies that make watching them in 3D really cool (sanctum, Tangled, Avatar) but majority of movies have gimmick 3D which really doesn't add much at all.

Now for games I have seen a lot of useful aspects of 3d, especially in shooters. It makes it more natural on gauging distance and sighting for myself as I shoot in real life. The 3d if done right makes it feel more natural in game and as such judging distance is easier. Just like movies it helps encompass you in the game.

After the positives for games here is the negative that doesn't justify using 3d. The current HDMI firmware CAPS at 24.4 fps at 1080p 3d. The hardware is capable of a stable 30 fps 3d 1080p, but they need a revision of the software side. To get close to 30 fps in 3d they have to drop the graphics to 720p. Since the game was written for 1080p and gets dropped down, it causes other unwanted effects that most developers skim over because 3d is just more of a side effect or a bonus right now.

If/when we can get a stable 30fps (baseline for games) in 3d at 1080p that will be a large step. 720p 3d wouldn't be all that bad IF they designed the game around it, but I don't think a game company will do that. However I do believe there will be a company that designs a game around the 3d aspect if we get a steady 30 fps 3d 1080p.

I kind of liken it to Rise of Nightmares. While the game wasn't that great. It's starting to show what can be done in games with the kinect besides just gimmicks. All movements are basically reactionary, besides having to walk around (which they even knew they couldn't do properly since they added an auto walk to next destination).

Guys, just go to any of the sources for ad scans. You have missed nothing so far.

^Yeah, only one of them has it. Not really impressed, until prices show. Those should be regular black friday sale items.

Seriously guys, do you need to "save" spots in the thread? Once this thread gets to be 60+ pages long like it always does, no one is going to read pages 2-55 anyways.

I'm really looking forward to getting a new HDTV this BF. My current 56" TV has the light engine going bad. Fortunately it was still under warranty, so they paid me a grand to buy a new one instead of fixing it! Not really interested in fighting the crowds though.

Here is a thought. How about giving the first post the wiki treatment. After all, alot of information will be coming out in the next month so why not let everyone chip in to this thread? Just my two cents.

P.S- Hoping for some deals on PC hardware. Time to build a new rig and I need a sexy graphics card (6950 or 6970 :D)

I need a new signature.

Nope, better off having one person control the flow of info. Too many chefs spoil the stew.

The TGT ad is already in the ETL's & STL's hands although I caught a glimpse of it the items don't have the sales prices on them. I expect the real ad with prices should be coming in soon! I'll keep my fellow CAG member updated.

Is there any chance of Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3 going on sale? I don't think Black Ops went on sale last year so I'm guessing the chances are pretty low.

I just want the best deal on 360 hardware, preferably a console with a HDD (could not care less about having a kinect).

The holiday bundle is very lame, too. *sigh*

battlefield 3 might, since its EA and last year most EA games were $35, Madden, and other sports games, medal of honor and need for speed hot pursuit.

so we might have a chance :D


MW3 not really, maybe $50, but did best buy do $35 for black ops last christmas? they usually have $35 the week before christmas for all call of duty games.

Thanks for the post. However, I found that your section about most deals not being available online was not accurate, so I changed it. Almost all the deals, except doorbusters, are indeed available online.

Can we get some clarification on rules for ads Cheapy? Last year there was no issue just linking to ads so long as we didn't actually host the image. Shrike deleted links so I'm confused what is allowed now.
