    Viewsonic really one-ups Sony with the Nvidia 3d support. Now my choice of a 3d monitor to purchase has been complicated two-fold [​IMG].

    I don't really think it's competition. Sony has the PS TV bundled.

    all these screens are too tiny (viewsconic is going after the pc market though)

    I have a ViewSonic monitor and I'm pretty happy with it, if these guys compete toe-to-toe with Sony it would be interesting. This is more for PC gamers like Joe88 says but I think there could be some indirect competition. Look how much Just Cause 2, the 3D gamer game, costs on Steam vs PSN. I could see PC gamers that don't need a big display jumping on this.

    I thought the Playstation TV wasn't 3D? I've yet to find a retailer near me that sells one, nor an international retailer that won't charge half the price in shipping. I'd love to have one of those in my room. I wonder what model PS2 it is - built in modified PS2 would be awesome.

    As for this though, the more the merrier, I suppose.

    Actually, they're aiming for the general gaming market. PC/PS3/Xbox 360. All that good stuff.

    But 3D is how it works. The glasses work so that when playing multiplayer, it separates the screen so that Player 1 only sees the left-eye image, while Player 2 only sees the right-eye image (both in 2D), while in singleplayer the player sees each image in each eye (for the 3D effect).

    Still not worth the money just for 3D, in my opinion...

    The only reason why I was considering the Sony monitor is because I wanted to play my Wii and PS3 through the monitor instead of the TV... but there are many cheaper ways to do that.

    For a computer screen it's slightly above the average size and is plenty sufficient for most users. The average monitor size today and what is considered the standard is a 22 inch screen. Unfortunately most of the other 3D capable screens available for computers are very expensive, 350 dollars isn't bad in the grand scheme of things. As for me, I wouldn't consider getting it since I don't really care about 3D gaming on my computer and I use AMD graphics anyway.
