built-in speakers and subwoofer fill out the audio experience.

Because 500 USD for a 3D TV is kind of a nice price/bullet point...you just need to have it be 24 inches.

Too small, but a cool idea, especially for 2 players. Although 500 bucks is too much even with the glasses and game. (HDMI cables are 1 buck on amazon)

Not really, if anything it's a huge help for split screen gaming on a smaller display. Though I definitely want to see that type of tech move into larger screens eventually.

I think they were trying to target a $499 price point to get it in as many homes as they could. Although they could have made a secondary one.

I don't understand, does Sony think there's a large number of people with PS3s that don't have HDtv already? If there were, it would make a lot more sense for them to spend that $499 towards a non3D 42" plasma, than it would to buy this.

Also, why is it so chubby. It needs to work out and slim down.

It's seriously ugly, Sony should take a few notes from Apples, and specifically the iMac's display.

Plus for 24" it seems overpriced. It should be $399 and without Resistence 3 bundled in.
Or it should be 32" and $499 without Resistence 3 bundled in it.

Or $799 with both Resistence 3 and a PS3 bundled with it. Or $999 for a 42 inch display with a PS3 and Resistence 3.

I was hyped for this earlier... but $69 for glasses is still way too much, and 24" is pretty small (my current flat is 32"). I guess I spoke too soon when I saw the $499 price tag.

I guess it makes for a good small game room TV.

Okay, so it's NOT a television.

It's a "display". As in, no TV Tuner built in. That's part of why it's so cheap. Okay then.


I look forward to seeing how this sells, since you're damn near reaching IPS monitor prices.

2 player mode sounds pretty neat.

i sometimes play my ps3 on my 24" computer display and the size is fine (when i'm close). i guess for a secondary solution this would be okay, bedroom or dorm room maybe..

I am tempted to buy this, simply because of all the gadgets/games etc I am buying this year may not make room for the 3DTV I am eying in time for all the great PS3 3D games. This would be nice to have in the meantime, especially because I was already eying a new monitor for my PC.

Well, okay then Sony. Now I seem to recall Sir Howard Stringer preaching about "Sony United" ever since he took over the company, how's about SCE share this technology with Sony Electronics so they can integrate the cool stuff into their regular 3DTVs? I'm planning to upgrade my current HDTV, a non-3D 52" Sony model I picked up about 3 years ago, to a 3DTV sometime in the next few years. If you want my money for another TV Sony, put these Playstation TV things into your regular TVs, especially the one where it feeds the alternate frames of a 2-player mode to each person's glasses because THAT IS FUCKING GENIOUS.

Their Bravia Oled Tvs were small and expensive, and didn't sells, I think this will meet the same fate

The 2 players mode is fantastic idea, if they put it into some 32” or 37” Bravias it will be sweet.

The dual individual screen setup should be doable on any 3d tv, shouldn't it?

It's the ps3 that's handling it, the display shouldn't care what it's displaying alternatively.

This is not a television. Not sure if you realized that or not, so I thought I'd point it out. It's a monitor. It's priced as high as a high-quality IPS monitor.

Since it doesn't say otherwise, I'm going to assume this is a standard-backlit (non-led) baclit monitor and some unique features. If you primarily game on your monitor, it's worth considering.

Nvidia's cards all support it with "3DTV Play" but your resolution is limited to 720p due to HDMI's limitations. No idea if Sony will try to get this thing Nvidia 3D Vision certified for full 1080p 3D PC gaming.
