[QUOTE=Zod;2491465]lol @ the price point!
Why do people always assume something won’t catch on because it’s expensive.
people said the same thing about bluray and dvd when the came out (As well as hdtv’s).
price’s drop over time, as the technology gets cheaper to produce… look at how much cheaper bluray technology is today then it was 2 years ago… 3d might not catch on right away (or ever), but in the long run, I don’t think its the price point that would keep it from catch on. I imagine and some point the 3d tech will be included in all new hdtv’s.[/QUOTE]
… given that other vendors are offering 3D TV’s that don’t require $200US (per pair) glasses, but just the dodgy red/green coloured glasses that have been around since … the 1960’s
A basic family with 2 kids … pays $800US so the family can sit down & watch a 3D movie … given that the whole TV cost $800US.
It’s going to be a niche market (rich, cashed up youngsters without kids), at least the Active Shutter Glasses, for several years.
