Sony’s 24-inch PlayStation 3D Display Now Available in Europe

April 19th, 2012 · 4 Comments · General 3D News

Sony has finally made available their 24-inch PlayStation 3D Display in Europe after first releasing it a couple of months ago in the US (back in November last year). The European version of the 3D display comes bundled with the Platinum versions of Gran Turismo 5 and Killzone 3, two top game titles supporting stereo 3D on the PlayStation 3 and two pairs of 3D glasses, while the US version came bundled only with MotorStorm: Apocalypse and just one pair of 3D glasses. The recommended end user price of the Sony PlayStation 3D Display for Europe is 499 Euro and that is actually a bit high, considering that at the moment you can get the display in the US for less than $400 USD. Not to mention that you can also find some bigger size 3D HDTVs for the price of the PlayStation 3D Display, though with it you also get the SimulView feature for playing multiplayer games with separate views for each player. You’d however need to play games that support that features as not all multiplayer games would be able to take advantage from that feature. Just as a reminder, the PlayStation 3D Display uses HDMI 1.4 interface for the stereoscopic 3D support, meaning that you can use the display not only with the PS3 console for 3D, but also with other 3D capable devices using HDMI 1.4.

    Be sure to read all the user reviews at places like Amazon. These Displays had/have problems that may or may not have been rectified in subsequent production runs.

    Keep in mind, this Display only accepts a 60Hz signal, meaning it will not accept a 120Hz signal.

    I have had this display for about 3 months now. I have previously purchased a viewsonic DLP projector and Samsung LCD.
    Bought it from Bestbuy and got 2 glasses for it. I thought the crosstalk was pretty poor when I first fired it up, but after using for some time realized that you gotta run the thing in 3D mode for about 1.5hours until the 3D crosstalk nearly disappears. So I turn my glasses on and put them on my seat and turn on Gran Turismo 5 and let the demo mode play and come back in a while. Setting the monitor to Warm in the monitor menu helps too. I would recommend this monitor to anyone. Picture is superb.

    All today “3D” screen’s and Tv’s are just 3D Ready (because it not finish product) the real 3D Native screens didn’t need any 3d glasses to see in 3d directly with your eyes .

    Big 55-inch 3D Native Free Glasses are already for selling Toshiba’s 55ZL2 55-inch
