As the only company on the market which makes Blu-ray players, HDTVs and games consoles Sony's obsession with 3D is unequalled and this week it's providing proof...
Today sees the company's first 3D TV, the 'KDL-HX803' hit shop shelves. It comes in 40in and 46in sizes, packs a 1080p native resolution (dual 1080p to each eye when showing 3D), LED backlighting and Sony's own Motionflow 200Hz anti-blur technology.
Prices will start from around £1,400, but bizarrely it doesn't bundle active shutter glasses which means an extra circa £100 outlay per pair. Sony's first 3D Blu-ray players (the BD-S470 and BD-S570) also launch today with higher end 'HX903' and 'LX903' 3D TVs to follow before the end of the month.
On top of this Sony has also released its first stereoscopic 3D games for the PS3: Wipeout HD, Super Stardust HD, Pain and a rather limited one track 3D demo of MotorStorm Pacific Rift. Each will be made available exclusively through the PlayStation Network.
Does Sony's end-to-end portfolio of 3D products make adding a third dimension in time for the World Cup more attractive or is 2D the new 3D?
