    Sounds cool enough, I guess. Although, I don't know if I'm gonna get a 3D television.

    PfffftBWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! They must be one some good shit, because unless it's the 3DS, or some other form of portable 3D, Most of anybody is going to pass it up.

    I won't be getting a 3D TV, becuase I just bought a 42 inch flat screen LAST year. Goddammit, i'm not made out of money, and gaming is expensive as it is!

    That's a great idea, let's halve the resolution or frame rate of all games so they can be displayed in 3D. No thanks.

    If they want 3D, they'll have to bring out an refreshed console with twice the power.

    If it weren't for the damn glasses I'd be in on getting a 3DTV. I wear glasses myself and I've read that you can were the 3D ones over a pair of eye glasses, but come on how comfortable can that be after a couple hours of gaming or movie watching? The moment they come up with a way of doing it with out having to wear them damn glasses then ill get one, unless of course they make a really cool game then I suppose I'll prolly take the leap then.

    and what the hell does Sony know about the current gaming trend?

    Did they seriously think that we would LOOOOOVE to pay full price for a Digital Download of a PSP game, that you can't resell, and can't transfer to a new account? Or did they thing that it would be so incredibly AWESOME to base the latest PSP model solely on Digital Distribution?

    please, Sony is so out of touch with the average consumer it's ridiculous.

    Put it like this, the Samsung 3D TV's come with a health warning.

    It's because of the flicker.

    I dunno about it just being for "kids". Plenty of people in the UK seem to be interested in 3DTV, price is dropping rapidly and I know quite a few people who are planning on buying a set this year/early next year.

    It's not for me, but to dismiss it as "for kids only" is silly and immature.

    Who are Sony to say what another company should be doing? I guess they're back to the arrogant route of talking out of their asses... personally I hope it carries over to E3. I'd really enjoy another laughable Sony E3 presentation in the spirit of the 599 US dollars/Ridge Racer/Massive damage/giant enemy crab debacle.

    Good 3DTVs are still too expensive for most people. Mediocre sets that aren't really worth buying are affordable, but I don't see why anyone would want to bother. A couple years down the road, they'll just have to pay another $2000-$5000 for quad HDTVs (or 4KTVs, as I call them) and so on. The whole thing is really starting to become quite dull.
