    No.

    I might be a bit slipper damaged but I don't look anything like Fearless Fly, with or without glasses.

    They keep padding the box with more USELESS shite to try and tempt us, but snow is snow, and I'm not blinded by it. Tho it's a crying shame, I remain totally unimpressed nor tempted by recent or future CoD franchises.

    Well I know the guys here haven't sold many 3D TV's at all, we do have some 3D monitors now and also a Notebook with a 3D display, which I played a racing game on and it was a lot of fun! But I wouldn't go out of my way to get one of course.

    I've got several at work, but no interest in having one at home because it's not really 3D, it's stereo - which isn't the same thing. Fine for what I do at work, not fine for gaming.

    I got the Samsung 55" 3d LCD, used the 3D side of it about 3 times and not been used after.. even sold the glasses on ebay :) was nice for a gimmik, would never sit through a whole movie in 3D though.. erk ! was just timing that they came out at the same time I was upgrading the old 46" Samsung. As for a monitor though, Id prob use that more once more games start using it.

    Our son keeps talking about upgrading our LCD TV to a 3D one, which isn't going to happen. I'm with you Darkness, I don't want to sit watcing TV with rediculous glasses on.

    I think this might be like the music mini disc's that when we were looking for a new CD player quite some years ago we were told this was the thing to buy & was the greatest thing since sliced bread. We didn't buy one & thank god we didn't, anyone seen them since? No ;)

    lol yea you do feel a little strange wearing those things.. but it wasnt that so much as it just felt wrong.. it does look damn nice, the 3d effect is brilliant.. but the "wrongness" of it didnt work for me, even the wife wasnt really into it.. I dunno, hard to explain :) I found myself spending more time watching the "effect" of it than the movie/show itself.. haha

    In the shop its WOW look at that ! at home its meh, gotta find the glasses, make sure they are charged, hope they dont go flat half way through a movie etc.. meh

    And yes I remember those sony mini disc's.. lol MP3 killed that idea pretty quick :)

    The Nitendo 3DS might do the same to the TV's.. 3D without any glasses ! :)

    How long till it hits TV's ? :)

    Won't be long Darkness as a couple of the companies are already on to it and have been since about a month after the first ones were released, I think Samsung is one of the companies already gearing to this.
