Sony PlayStation 3D TV Jitters As Plugs 'Special Bundle' $499?

By Oonagh Reidy | Monday | 29/08/2011

As interest in 3D slides, Sony have begun luring gamers to its forthcoming TV display with free titles.

Although Sony insist interest in the new 24" 3D LED display has been high, it is now flogging the gaming screen on pre order, throwing in 3D glasses, HDMI cable, Resistance 3 on Blu-ray and now also MotorStorm Apocalypse on Blu-ray for US$499. 

"The PlayStation 3D Display we unveiled at E3 has been getting plenty of buzz," writes Kim Nguyen, PlayStation 3 Marketing Manager on its US blog, but "If you pre-order the bundle - which includes the 24-inch 3D Display, one pair of universal PlayStation 3D glasses, MotorStorm Apocalypse on Blu-ray, and an HDMI cable - you'll also receive a copy of Resistance 3 on Blu-ray." 

However, orders for the "special offer" need to be placed with retailers by Sept. 30, to avail of the deal. The display is to be released first to US gamers this fall. 

Although Sony did say in June it would bundle the 3D display package, one can't help but wonder if the gamer getting anxious about the forthcoming release led it to throw in MotorStorm Apocalypse for good measure. 

This comes as Nintendo recently slashed price of 3D S "glasses free" console by over AU$100 here, which can now be bought for as little as $199 from some Aussie retailers - a massive $150 drop compared to its release price of $349 less than six months ago. 

"We are giving shoppers every incentive to pick up a Nintendo 3DS, from an amazing new price to a rapid-fire succession of great games," Nintendo said last month. 

The gamer also slashed income projections a whopping 80% as sales of the flagship 3D console appear to be on the slide. 

 Set to be released in Australia this Christmas and designed to accompany the new Vita handheld, the ultrathin, 24" gaming LED with 1080p resolution 3D Display is enhanced for gaming with SimulView technology, allows full HD screen action to each player in two-player mode, letting two people view different images on the screen at the same time. 

Other specs include 2 HDMI inputs allowing gamers attach PlayStation 3 or and PC and excellent audio sound via subwoofers. 

"Now is the time to jump into 3D gaming" Nguyen says, "with so many amazing titles coming to PS3 in 3D this holiday, like Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Ruin, ModNation Racers and Capcom's Street Fighter x Tekken are also set for release.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
