I genuinely hope 3D doesn’t take off in the home. It’s so much better suited for theaters, and if people stop going out to see 3D movies in the theater, it will disapear from the theaters. As the old saying goes, build it and they will come; well, if they don’t come, they will tear it down. I think it’s important for our society that people have affordable entertainment options outside the home, and to me, 3D movies in the theater is among the best of those options.

As if studios and electronics companies haven’t made enough enough off
blu-ray, now they want to roll out yet another new format that requires a new tv and a new player to be able to enjoy it? Sorry, no thanks.

Not to mention that they also want to charge ANOTHER premium for 3D Blu-ray movies, on top of the already higher Blu-ray premium.

I think’s that’s an invalid argument. I’d say the vast majority of people don’t go out and see a movie because it’s 3D. They see it because they’re interested in the movie. 3D is just a means of enhancing a movie. If I had a huge 3D TV setup in my house, I’d still go to the movies if something of interest came out.

It’s matter of what are the true long term effects of exposer to 3D.

Not all people are capable of watching 3D.

I still believe that this will stay a niche market, It’s there if you want it.
