Sony's PlayStation 3D Display Shipping Nov. 13th For $500

Remember that PlayStation 3D display that was unveiled way back at E3? It hasn't vanished. In fact, it's shipping soon. Very soon. Sony just announced via their own blog that PS3 owners can hunt one down in the U.S. (and a few other, unspecified places) starting November 13th. The 3D Display will cost $499.99, which includes the screen itself, one pair of 3D Glasses, MotorStorm Apocalypse Blu-ray game, and an HDMI cable. All you need to do is hook up your PS3 system and you’re ready to go. It'll support both 2D and 3D content, and with active 3D, you can get Full HD 3D playback; with passive 3D, you will get half the resolution. Active 3D displays require active 3D glasses and passive 3D displays require polarized passive 3D glasses. The 3D Display supports active 3D and the highest resolution.

As for specs? It'll feature two HDMI 1.4 ports, one component cable input, plus a stereo headphone output. It's a 240Hz panel, and there's an integrated subwoofer as well. This special two-player feature is unique to the 3D Display in that it significantly enhances two-player mode in select games. Ordinarily, two-player mode is played in split-screen format. With this unique two-player feature, each player gets their own full (2D) HD screen while wearing the 3D Glasses for the 3D Display. At this time, the 3D Display is the only display on the market that supports the SimulView two-player gaming feature. At launch, you’ll be able to play MotorStorm Apocalypse, Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 3, and Super Stardust HD, and more titles are on the way.

So, you buying in?
