77w ago - Today Sony Senior Vice President of Sales Tim Bender has shared a new video featuring spokesman Kevin Butler introducing an exclusive Best Buy PlayStation 3D Display offer this holiday season.
To quote: We hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and are excited for what's in store this holiday season.
As you know, the PlayStation 3D Display officially launched last week and our friends at Best Buy are offering a new promotion to celebrate. While supplies last, customers who purchase a 3D Display will be able to purchase a PS3 for only $100.
A fantastic offer for those wanting to experience 3D gaming and entertainment right out of the box.
Just in case you missed it on Sunday, the new promotion was announced in a new TV commercial that aired for the first time nationally during the Falcons/Viking football game and it features everyone's favorite executive Kevin Butler.

It's an LCD screen. Simulview does not excuse such a price difference with other models. I also sold TV's (LCD, computer screens or whatever you wanna call it) for over 2 years in a big chain of stores.
Sony's are most expensive, and their quality are getting worse. To the point where they had to make a deal with Samsung to let them build the screens for them.
This is another piece of crap they couldn't sell in the "TV" department so they threw it to the Sony Computer Entertainment branch.
In terms of display and LCD/LED technology Sony is outdated and expensive compared to the concurrence. DO NOT BUY THIS.
Whatever you wanna call it, its not worth the price.
Err - this is NOT TV - it's instead (semi-computer) screen with 2 HDMIs and Component inputs more or less dedicated to PS3 / PSP / Vita - so anyone heer yaping about Sony "TV" is barking at a wrong tree. Also - you can't compare it to any other TV - Sony, Samsung or any other - this has different (more PC monitor than TV) technology and also some unique features not available on TVs - one of them is specifically the decreased crosstalk and other the is the quite interresting SimulView.
Also - not everyone has the space to fit in 42"+ screen - students or someone having 2nd playstation in bedroom or another location - there is always market for "small" screens like that.
It pays to KNOW something about the stuff you're trying to criticize first
Do not feel bad that you're missing out on this offer because it's pretty weak in my opinion simply based on the quality of the display.
I hope I can save some people some heartache by saying at the very least, MAKE SURE YOU CAN WATCH THIS TV AND IN 3D MODE BEFORE YOU BUY IT. Sony's 3D is terrible. I've sold tv's for about 6 years (I have ZERO brand loyalty) and I got a screaming deal on the best Sony 3D LED without going to the (at the time) $3000 XBR series.
Let me tell you that Sony's 3D is really really bad. There is not very good depth, which may not necessarily be a HUGE deal, but the cross talk on it is terrible. Cross talk is when you get like a faint double vision outline of something on the screen that you're watching.
I saw Avatar in 3D in the theatres to see what all the hype was about, then got the chance to watch it again on my Sony at home. The cross talk and the trouble that the TV/glasses had keeping up with scenes with lots of action/motion made it almost unwatchable, and might make you sick if you're motion sensitive.
Simply put, unless Sony has seriously upgraded their displays and this TV is a different generation, do not waste your money.
