131w ago - Sony Hardware Marketing Director John Koller has announced news of a new 3D TV display and PS3 accessories at E3 2011 tonight.
To quote: PlayStation has long been synonymous with technology and innovation and with the upcoming launch of PlayStation Vita, this year is no different.
In addition to delivering an unparalleled gaming experience with PS Vita, we're expanding the PlayStation 3 offering with a number of new products that will bring you some of the most immersive gaming experiences on the market.
Among the new technology unveiled at E3 is the 3D Display , which features a 24" LCD screen with full HD 1080p 3D presentation. Available at retailers nationwide starting this fall, the 3D Display is uniquely enhanced for gaming with a special two-player feature, offering best-in-class visuals in both 2D and 3D.
The 3D Display utilizes an exclusive feature that optimizes two-player mode by delivering individual full HD screens, giving each person their own full screen view of the action on the same display while playing co-op or head-to-head.
With an ultra-slim PlayStation inspired bezel design and built-in speakers and subwoofer, the 3D Display is big on image quality and sound and delivers all of your HD media simply by connecting to PS3, PC or cable TV box. It's perfect for bedrooms, dorm rooms or wherever you want to play the best 3D console games.
We also announced official 3D Glasses, which are optimized for gaming with comfortable stylish design and built-in rechargeable battery - a perfect match for the 3D Display. You'll get a pair of these with the 3D Display, but you can also purchase them separately for $69.99 (MSRP) - and you'll probably want to, given the new exclusive feature on the 3D Display.
In addition, the 3D Glasses will work with a variety of active shutter type of 3D TVs and displays.
Each 3D Display will include one pair of 3D Glasses as well as an HDMI cable and a copy of Resistance 3 on Blu-ray disc-all of $499.99 (MSRP)
Resistance 3, The Doomsday Edition is without a question the best way to experience the upcoming title from Insomniac Games. The bundle, which includes a copy of the game on Blu-ray disc, a PlayStation Move motion controller, navigation controller, PlayStation Eye, and PlayStation Move sharp shooter, will be available at retailers nationwide on September 6, 2011, for $149.99 (MSRP). Taking advantage of the sharp shooter's authentic, ergonomic design and pinpoint precision with the PlayStation Move locked in, the Chimeran menace will have nowhere to hide.
Not long ago, we announced the official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset , and we're very happy to see the positive response you've all had. With unparalleled virtual surround sound, the Wireless Stereo Headset is a great way to completely wrap yourself into your favorite games.
As we've mentioned before, we here at PlayStation are always looking for new ways to enhance and expand your gaming experience. Marrying the best software lineup in PlayStation history with offerings designed to fully immerse you into the gameplay, there's never been a better time to be a PlayStation 3 owner. I can't wait to use these in my home too!

well the idea behind the two player stuff is that instead of getting 1/2 a screen in 3D each both players would get the whole screen in 2D (with 2 pairs of active shutter glasses) that way player 1 can't see what player 2 is up to and vice versa but I just don't see anyone going for it, especially since anyone else in the room not wearing glasses will most certainly be headed for migraine city.
Here in the UK I've no doubt they'll go for a straight $500 = £500 conversion so no chance I'm spending that kind of cash on a 24 inch monitor that's as ugly as sin. I mean seriously why have the speakers at the side? Didn't people stop doing that in the 90's.
