    You won't be getting a full HD 3D experience, but Sony says you won't know the difference.

    If the difference isn't noticeable, what's the point of 1080p in the first place?

    You won't notice the difference in 3D perhaps?

    Or just management spin

    Something like that

    Just read else where that there are only a few games that actually output 1080p anyway, virtually all are 720p60fps anyway.

    Ignoring all this, is anyone surprised? The PS3 is going to need to do more work to output a 3D image (twice as much, I don't know how this tech works) so why would you expect to get full resolution and frame rate gaming in 3D from a console that originally wasn't designed for it? The fact that 3D gaming will actually work on this in the first place, to me is testament to the power and flexibility of the system. I say well done to Sony on the PS3*

    its a waste anyway, why would someone spend so much on a 3d tv to play on a cheap console, rather than a pc

    Hasn't Killzone 3 already been outed as sub 720p ?

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    And when you take off your 'SDF' tinted glasses you'll see that Crytek have been using the 360 as their demo units, not the PS3.

    I do like the idea of 3D, but its the glasses (queue stuck record) that put me off. Does any manufacturer currently have prototypes out of lens-less 3D at the minute on a scaled larger than the 3DS ?

    I think its possible but currently the viewing angles would be so small it would be a commercial flop AFAIK
