The Blu-ray 3D movies are true 1080p and you can view other videos at 1080p resolution on a 3D TV (24 fps per eye), but for comfortable gaming you need higher framerate than you usually have in a video... and the current generation of 3D HDTVs are just designed to support only 720p resolution input with 100/120Hz (50/60 frames per eye).

Hmmm. When you say I can view "other videos at 1080p resolution on a 3D TV (24 fps per eye)" - Does that mean I can create my own videos within these parameters and view them on one of the new 3D TVs? Is there software that is currently available that would allow me to do this? I am a 3D artist (3ds max) so I can create videos at whatever resolution/frame rate is needed. I would most likely render two separate 1920x1080 videos. (one for each eye) I could then use Adobe Premiere to combine these two videos side by side into a single 3840x1080 video. Would this be the most common "3D" format for playing on these TV's? Or would there be a better way?

Yes, you should be able to by directly plugging a USB flash or HDD with the video in the TV and playing it, but you should check as it may vary with different 3D TV sets. Currently if you play the video from a PC it will be displayed with 1080p, but with half horizontal resolution because of not being sent with frame packaging (but in Side by Side format instead) as it is required by the HDMI 1.4(a) specs. However by playing it directly from the TV this should be possible to be avoided, also check what video formats the specific 3D TV supports. Maybe people that already have a Samsung, Panasonic or a Sony 3D HDTV can report if it really works for them or it is still being displayed in squashed 1080p format...

I've seen a Sony HX800 demo with a 1080p video being played from a USB stick and the guys from Sony said that it is a true 1080p video, not squashed, but I could not tell for sure... and I cannot yet check as I do not yet own a 3D HDTV. But as I said a lot of things can be specific for each brand's 3D products, so you should not assume that if something works on Samsung for example it will work on a Panasonic or Sony the same way.
