Sony delays 3D PlayStation telly in Europe
Brit gamers must wait longer for dual-view telly
Sony's 3D PlayStation telly has been delayed in Europe, with a release date now expected some time in 2012.
Perhaps it's a question of ownership. Ask Sony's TV people about the telly and they say talk to the gaming division. The PlayStation team say, we don't sell TVs - speak to the Bravia team.
The 24in active-shutter gaming 3D TV, first announced at the E3 2011 show in June, allows users to see two separate stereoscopic images, effectively simultaneously, depending on which of two pairs of glasses they wear.
British gamers will now have to wait until next year to get their hands on one. The Sony PlayStation 3DTV is available for pre-order on Amazon for £410. ®
Like a ball.
Something for kiddy widdies.
£410 is a good price if you intend to stick with a 24" TV for the next 5 years. Maybe it has an HDMI output that can connect up to a bigger TV to increase its longevity?
I suppose it's ideal for a teenager's bedroom where you'd hope they wouldn't ever have a family size TV in there. Very unsociable - they should gather in the lounge with the rest of the family to watch a big TV where they can talk and have something called a "conversation" which doesn't involve pushing buttons. Crikey, I sound like someone's grandfather!
Perhaps they've realised that consumers really don't want to fork out obscene amounts of cash of lacklustre technologies that are neither innovative or desirable and the market clearly seems to back me up on this.
... Hang on ...
... Sony having business foresight ... vs ... Sony being inept ...
Silly me ... !
