Why To Buy Sony PlayStation 3D Display

July 7

Not prepared to spend big on a 3DTV? The Sony PlayStation 3D display could be a cheaper solution to embracing the visual innovation. It’s not the only reason you will want to spend your money though…

In a bid to get more PS3 owners to embrace the 3D gaming revolution, Sony unveiled its PlayStation branded 24-inch 3D-ready display at E3 earlier this year. Aside from its stereoscopic prowess, we give you ten reasons why you should be parting with your cash to grab the Sony PlayStation 3D display.

  • Slick Screen

A 24-inch, full-HD 1080p resolution screen and edge LED lighting technology ensure crisp visuals and an impressive contrast ratio.

  • 3D to the max

Active shutter tech and an integrated 3D transmitter deliver a devastatingly stereoscopic experience.

  • Two-player action

On compatible games, SimulView enables two specs-wearing players to see their own individual, full-screen, feeds in 2D.

  • Not just for gaming

Connect it to a set-top box and you can watch TV and movies in 3D or 2D.

  • The hook up

With two HDMIS, a component port and compatibility with the PS3, 3D-ready PCs and other 3D consoles, it’s a multi-dimensional hub.

  • Sweet sound

Built-in speakers and 5W subwoofer give games and movies audio clout.

  • Lag-free action

A 240Hz refresh rate means smooth gameplay and blur-free images.

  • PlayStation 3D glasses

These use active shutter technology. One set of specs is included, extras cost $69 each (UK £TBC).

  • Gaming out of the box

It ships with a copy of MotorStorm: Apocalypse for instant 3D action.

  • Money talks

Despite the specs, it’s the cheapest route into 3D viewing to date.
