Sony prices up PlayStation telly for UK
One screen, multiple pictures
Sony has put a price to its PlayStation TV and confirmed it will come to Blighty this autumn.
The 24in active-shutter gaming 3D TV, first announced at E3 2011, brings with it a technology called "SimulView", allowing gamers to see two separate stereoscopic images, depending on which glasses they wear.
We reported recently how Amazon US was taking preorders and had the set down for a 31 December launch.
However, Sony dismissed this date, insisting the PSTV will hit stores in Europe during Q3.
The Sony PlayStation television will cost £499 and comes with two sets of 3D glasses, as well as a bundled game. ®
Sounds a good idea in theory, two people playing the same game, without being able to see what the other person is doing, also allowing full screen view rather than split-screen.
But, 24 inches? Seems a little small to me, unless it's intended for a bedroom.
this is for spoilt teenagers in their bedrooms. no good in a lounge.
and the same one at home, that 'im looking after for them :)'
even 32" in a lounge seems small. i have a 42" in the lounge and now it feels small too!
