Sony's 3D PlayStation Display Now Available In Europe

Bedroom sized panel out now!

Remember the 3D monitor that Sony showed off at last year’s E3? It’s been out in the US for a while now but I’ve been keeping an eye out for a European release and have been disappointed… until now!

The press release came through this morning to let us know that the 24 inch, 1080P 3D Display is now available in Europe, although I’ve checked and it’s still not showing up on Amazon just yet. For its European release, the display is bundled with a couple of games – Platinum versions of Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo 5 as well as an HDMI cable and two pairs of rechargable 3D glasses.

Those 3D glasses will also allow you to use the display’s SimulView feature, showing a totally different 2D image to two different players, allowing a kind of split screen 2-player mode without having to split the screen!

There are two HDMI ports as well as a component port, which the press release says is for a PS2 or PSP connection but we assume it will accept DVD players, freeview boxes and the like too.

The bundle is priced at £449.99, hopefully retailers will start updating their listings soon.

      Why? There’s far better alternatives for a lot less.

      Also if your going to buy a 3d tv the best one under £500 is probably the Panasonic st30 (42″ version)

      Sorry, didn’t see your reply when I posted that but there’s still better small 3d monitor/tv’s for around £300. Some are even 2k ( 2x 1080p)

      You can get this: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/logik-l423ed11-full-hd-42-led-3d-tv-299-currys-co-uk-1196588 for £299, so plenty of change left over compared to the £450 asking price and it’s also a bigger screen. Not the best brand but for the money it’ll do for a dedicated gaming monitor etc.

      That $393 price doesn’t include tax, tax would be added depending what state it’s been delivered to and who (Native Americans wouldn’t have to pay tax in most states).

    Out of interest, how many games support this SimulView feature? I assume it wouldnt be automatic.

      Gt5, uncharted, motorstorm and killzone do for sure, probably quite a few more though.

    Sounds pricey – Surely you can get a larger 3D TV for that sort of money? (I don’t know for certain as I hate 3D with a passion)

    If you press a button, the screen slides up revealing a giant joypad for this supersize PSPgo

    I think it’s a bit expensive as 24″ is a bit small. On the other hand it’s bound to deliver a cracking picture, perhaps suitable for a bedroom?

    At first glance it seems too expensive, but remember it’s got two pairs of glasses. In some setups you’d be looking at £100-150 extra for the glasses. Knock that off the price and maybe it’s not so bad.

    It’s too late for me though, I went down the line of 3D projectors. Unchartered 3/Crysis 2 on a 80″ screen in 3D! I couldn’t go back to 24″.
