Another thing people will vehemently want, and never admit that they get it for porn...

Yeah...unless they can get it to work for porn and gaming, doubt it will fly.

I'm guessing supporting 3D tvs that no one has will mean that the PS4 and Xbox 3 will cost at least $1000.

Wow you guys are out of the loop

Mitsubishi DLP TVs are 3D-ready right now. My wife's stepdad just bought a 60 inch DLP 3D-ready TV for $1200 at best buy. The only gimmick with DLP TVs is that they don't do dark levels as well as newer TVs, and the bulbs inside apparently burn out every 2 years and are a $100 to replace. Still, 60 inches 1080p on comparable tech runs you about $2k, and it wont be 3D-ready. You can buy the video game Avatar, hook it up to the TV with either a HDMI cable from your HDMI-capable Xbox (the newer ones) or your PS3, and play it in 3D (not that you would really want the game avatar based on the reviews... but still). You could also hook up your PC with a RGB -> HDMI connector and using something like e-dimensional 3d glasses or nvidia 3d vision you can play PC games (a lot of them) in 3d as well.

Vizio is coming out with a 72 inch 3D TV for a little over $3k. A 47 inch 3D TV from Vizio will be less than $2k. And yes, 3D tech will drive the prices down on everything else :)

All this talk of $12,000 TV's and $1000 PS4's is just pulling numbers out of thin air.

My 46" Samsung TV (that is over a year old) is already 3D ready.  I just need to buy the 3D add-on kit when it becomes available. There was talk at CES of a firmware upgrade that will make the PS3 able to play the 3D Blu Ray discs. (So no need to buy a new Blu Ray player.)  Dreamworks has already announced Monsters Vs Aliens as their first 3D Blu Ray due this year.  And you can bet that Avatar will also be released on 3D Blu Ray day and date with it's home video debut.

And these in home 3D set-ups will have liquid crystal shutter glasses which should allow for a richer 3D experience than what is in theaters now.

I'm very excited to see how this plays out this year.

I'm pretty sure that since Sony took an absolute bath on the PS3, they won't be charging a whole lot for the next one.

You know, there used to be this business plan nicknamed "The Columbia Record Club Plan" - where they gave you the player real, real cheap or for free....because they knew they'd make all their money on selling you stuff to play on it

well $1200 plus $100 every 2 years still sounds a little too much for a TV that doesn't have as good a picture.

I hate those Mitsubishi TVs no brightness what so ever... pretty terrible picture compared to everything else in my opinion. I had one for about a month (visa-vi a roomate). I think they should find a way to make LED TVs come with 3D, then at least there are multiple reasons to upgrade.

I'm not sure what you are talking about here, Doc.

I haven't seen anything to indicate that the picture quality will be lesser on these TV's.

Basically these TV's have to have a really fast refresh rate to switch between the left and right image that will sync up with your shutter glasses.  The picture will still be full HD.  And, because you are seeing each image separately, it won't have that washed out, like you are looking through sunglasses, color that you get at the theater.

My 3D ready TV has the port that will connect to the transmitter box.  This box will send the signal to the glasses that will enable the glasses to sync up with the program.   Sony announced at CES that the PS3 will get a firmware update to be able to do 3D Blu Ray and 3D PS3 games

The kit for my TV costs $200. (Includes transmitter and 2 pairs of glasses)  I have been holding off on buying it because there has been no reason to yet.  But with Monsters Vs. Aliens and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs already announced for Blu Ray 3D, and Avatar, and Toy Story 3 likely on the way.  Plus a lot of new games for the PS3 will have 3D modes.  I'll be getting one soon.

This technology is already available.  It is only now that we are starting to see companies make a push to release programming that takes advantage of the technology.

At least this is how I understand it to be.   Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.  ;D

I see.  He responded to my post by taking one line from a completely different post out of context.  No wonder I was confused. 

Yes, DLP TV's will need a bulb replacement at some point.  What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?   ???

Because it's $100 now while you're thinking of buying it.

Two years from now when you need it to keep your expensive TV working - watch it suddenly get more expensive.
