Sony Announces PlayStation-brand 3D Monitor


Sony last night unveiled a 24-inch (1920x1080) 3D display that it plans to launch later in the year. Measuring in at 35mm thick, this monitor packs stereo 2ch+subwoofer speakers, a 176-degree viewing angle, and allows two gamers playing on multiplayer to see individual, unique, full-screen images. Sony also claims the monitor is the first of its size to incorporate "quad speed frame sequential display technology.”

Buyers will get a pair of glasses with the panel when they purchase. The glasses are rechargeable and while 45 minutes provides 30 hours of play, a quick three-minute charge will get you three hours of use.

The monitor is at $499.99 for a bundle that includes Resistance 3 for PS3, an HDMI cable and a pair of 3D glasses. Extra pairs of glasses can be purchased separately for $69 a pop. Pricing for other regions has yet to be announced but we’ll keep you posted.

  • "two gamers playing on multiplayer to see individual, unique, full-screen images", that will be nice....finally the other player won't look at your screen to figure out where you are during a FPS match.

    It'll be interesting to see how well that feature works in operation.

  • A 1080p panel is nice, but HDMI 1.4 still limits you to 720p60 in 3D mode, same for this new multiplayer dual-view concept.
    I hope there is absolutely no crosstalk. It's bothersome in 3d, but it would be even more serious in mutiplayer dual-view.
