E3 2011 - Sony Still Believes Strongly in 3D with New Glasses and a 3D Bundle

With a lack of slideshow presentations (and Kevin Butler) and an organizational approach to the event, Sony showed off some interesting new products and games at this year's E3. Of course, along with those games came the hardware to support it and a strong, ongoing push for 3D, as Sony is pretty much the creator of the technology.

This year, Sony was proud to announce a new set of 3D games to add to more than 100 3D titles already on the PlayStation Network. That says a lot for a device that just recently got the upgrade for 3D. Also, 3D comes with a price, and that price exists with the hardware that you need to make 3D work. You need a pair of 3D glasses, which usually run at a price of $200 a pair, so to fix that sting, Sony will be releasing a pair of PlayStation branded 3D glasses for only $69.

However, that's not the only thing that is preventing more users to get down with the triple D. Customers are demanding a more affordable solution to fight the $1,000 3DTVs out there. Sony hears you on this, so they are offering a pretty sweet bundle. You can pick up a PlayStation branded 24" 3DTV that is capable of displaying two simultaneous images in 3D to individual pairs of 3D glasses. This is perfect for co-op or competitive multiplayer gameplay with two people in the same room. We can't figure out how this technology works, though, and would love to get our hands on it! Along with the TV you will be getting a pair of the $69 3D glasses, a six-foot HDMI cable, a Move controller and Resistance 3. All of that will only run you $499, and we hope to see the package pieced out so we can buy the TV!
