    At $700?

    A new computer is worth that much.

    Seems a little steep.

    First they make stupid 3D tv's that need ugly glasses to watch, and now instead of progressing they're going backwards? the glasses are getting bigger and uglier, until eventually we'll all wear motor cycle helmets to watch movies -_-
  6. How is this backwards? Id love one of these, would be nice to be 1080p though, and with headtracking! I wouldnt buy this for movies, Id buy this for GAMES! games would be so emersive. Ive been waiting for this for years.

    hello ...

    Welcome back Glasstron ... in 3D :p

    Said so, would love one .. the problems are with 720p videos & the price ...

    well we can't have it all ... it if works just fine ... will certainly get 1 instead of 3D TV until the perfect 3D TV comes out.

    No that was a VR simulation XD
  12. A sad time to be poor... I want this thing. It is Halo they playing on it...cause the gadget is not exclusive to any particular device.

    :eek: A contradiction lol...
  14. I wear glasses. Can they be used for people that wear glasses?
  15. Monitors are bad enough for your eyes, imagine what these things will do. I knew I should have gone into optometry...

    It's a luxury guys. It is not marketed to the average gaming market. I am sure Sony is aware of this and treats this as a simple field test for some next gen technology. I think it looks ok, but the technology still needs further refining to make it more appealing to me.(including of course, an affordable price range)
  17. I don't care that it's $700. I've been waiting for this since I was a kid--absolutely buying this!!
  18. I want one. So bad.
    I will connect it to my gaming rig and enter the Matrix.
