Sony’s PlayStation 3D Display Starts Shipping This Weekend

November 11th, 2011 · 9 Comments · General 3D News

The wait for Sony’s PlayStation 3D Display is almost over as the monitor should start shipping this weekend and more precisely on November 13th in North America at least, but the availability should soon follow in other regions as well. The 24-inch LCD screen with full HD 1080p 3D support over HDMI 1.4 interface could be a nice addon for PlayStation 3 gamers, but unfortunately won’t be that attractive to PC gamers. Even if you are not into stereoscopic 3D gaming, the PlayStation 3D Display has another interesting feature called SimulView that will allow multiplayer gaming with each of the players seeing only his own gameplay – no more split-screen gaming. You can watch the latest introductory video from Sony about the PlayStation 3D Display’s features embedded above if you are still not familiar with the product.

The PlayStation 3D Display has been available for pre-order for a while already…

    The £400 price tag and lack of DL-DVI for 1080p/120Hz for PCs are both deal breakers for me. While a 24″ PC 3D monitor can’t deal with the split/half frame images used by the 360 over HDMI, they’re also £250 and can deal with full HD 3D via DL-DVI.

    “Lovely PS logo on the 3D display and the 3D glasses”

    I guess it make the extra £150 :P

    I think this a pretty good deal, not for everybody, but I am certainly inclined to purchase one. Sony has been ahead of the technology curve for years.

    Nice blog, by the way.

    Would love to see an official review. Any way to hack those dual HDMI 1.4a inputs into dual 1080p 3D inputs for PC games?

    Unfortunately there is no way to avoid this limitation…

    I just bought this display on Christmas. It is a whole new class above my ASUS 23 inch and ViewSonic 22 inch 3D vision monitors.

    True, it can’t game at 1080p FULLHD @ 60HZ 3D, but the 5000:1 static contrast ratio picture quality and the $299 price tag are well worth it.

    I’m using the monitor with 3DTV play over HDMI and a GeForce GTX460. The bundled glasses are much brighter than my 3D Vision ones and also don’t have their green tint.

    I’d also add that the black level of this monitor is simply excellent. I don’t know how Sony managed it, but it rivals my Panasonic Vierra Plasma in contrast ratio. There’s also zero backlight bleed.

    What about the level of crosstalk/ghosting in stereo 3D mode?

  • 9 MVH // Jan 10, 2012 at 23:09

    There is a little cross-talk, giving a slight purple spectrum. I have the Acer Gd235hz and bought this as a possible replacement as I found the back-light bleeding and desktop quality poor on the Gd235hz.

    I still cant decided which to keep. The GH235gz is slightly smoother being a true 120hz but the color, design and back light are so much better on the PS3 3d display.
