Sony’s 3D PlayStation Monitor to be released in December

Posted on Aug 3 2011 - 12:05pm by Thomas Sharp

The Sony 3D PlayStation Monitor was a big hit when it was announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) last month, and it looks like it could be available to buy before the end of 2011.

Sony’s 3D PlayStation monitor has appeared on online shopping site with a release date of December 31st. Consumers can now pre-order it at the Amazon’s U.S. website for $499. The good thing about it is it will be released just in time for the Christmas season.

The new 3D monitor, which was designed to be used for gaming, comes bundled with a PlayStation 3 title MotorStorm Apocalypse (although Sony announced earlier that the 3D monitor will come with the Resistance 3) and a pair of 3D glasses that can be charged via USB.

The 3D PlayStation Monitor is a 24-inch active-shutter LED backlit LCD display with full HD 1080p 3D presentation. Its display adopts the “quad-speed frame sequential display technology,” which is capable of minimizing crosstalk distortion, delivering a realistic 3D viewing experience. It also features two HDMI inputs, built-in speakers and subwoofer.

It has been designed to provide the ultimate gaming experience as it utilizes proprietary technology called SimulView, which enables two players playing a co-op or head-to-head multiplayer game to see full screen images of gameplay using the included 3D Glasses.

The 3D display delivers high-definition media simply by connecting it to a PlatStation 3, PC or a capable TV box.

When we checked out the Amazon’s U.K. site, no 3D PlayStation Monitors were posted yet, so we’ll have to wait for an announcement from Sony. Hopefully they will showcase it at IFA 2011 in a months time, if so we’ll be sure to snap it for you ;-).
