    The set actually has half decent reviews but a lot did say it was too expensive.

    this could be a good idea for telly watching. guys could watch the football whilst women watch eastenders and coronation street, sitting on the same sofa. you would just look like a couple of prats with the glasses on though

    Or maybe Call of Duty and Eastenders... I'd buy it just for the chance to shoot the Eastenders characters.

    For 450 quid I expect at the very VERY least a 37 inch tele with a decent pair of 2.1 speakers. Even then they'll have to throw in, I don't know, Kaz Hirai's signature or something..

    Wait... not sure why I wanted Kaz's signature... but a photograph of him would be great for practicing archery I guess

    For that price I'd just buy 2 screens.

    Good idea in theory, but once again sony strikes and makes a good idea a damp squib.

    Got a 47" LG passive 3d TV for £600, now being a cleaver boy I can run a split screen game on a full screen each after modding some 80p glasses.

    Re: News - Sony PlayStation 3D display now available in UK

    I think this is a rip-off.

    I bought my son a 22" LG 3D TV for £220. It's got lighter passive 3D glasses and works with ones from the cinema.
    I also bought him Logitech speakers.... so I guess I still saved £150 and got smaller, sharper pixels and better sound!

    Re: News - Sony PlayStation 3D display now available in UK

    Had a look at the LG model in the PC World just up the road from where I work, 2 player without splitting the screen is interesting but I could still see a faint ghosting of the 2nd player screen with the glasses on.

    I still hate wearing glasses over my glasses (sounds like a "Yo Dawg" meme)

    Or one can have the subtitles on, without annoying the other...
