We knew you were dying to know what Sony was planning with those stereoscopic multiplayer display patents
last year, so we took a look at Sony's new PlayStation-branded 3D display
, just for you. True to its schtick, the stereoscopic display simultaneously displays two separate full screen images, hidden behind the smoke and mirrors of active shutter 3D technology -- while suffering only a minimal
amount of ghosting. The dual-full-screen trick will only work with PlayStation 3 games specifically programmed to make use of the feature, and although none have been announced yet, we wouldn't be surprised if pack-in title Resistance 3
is compatible. Staff couldn't say if the games featured in the demo video, Motorstorm Apocalypse
, would be updated to support this feature. While the demo units we saw performed their trick reasonably well, visible ghosting and flat, muted colors give us some reservations about that competitive $499 price tag.
