Sony offers cheap PlayStation Display to ease gamers into the world of 3D

Sony is launching a relatively inexpensive 24" full high-definition stereoscopic display (CECH-ZED1) in the hope of boosting its PS3 3D gaming empire.

The display will be launched under Sony's PlayStation brand and will be bundled with a pair of active shutter LCD glasses, a HDMI cable and a copy of sci-fi first person shooter Resistance 3 from Insomniac Games for PlayStation 3.

"Designed to deliver the ultimate gaming experience only possible on the 3D Display, it utilizes new, proprietary technology, that allows two players playing a multi-player game to see individual, unique, full-screen images of gameplay using the bundled 3D Glasses and supported software title," explained Sony while launching the product at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.

Sony Computer Entertainment president and group CEO Kazuo Hirai also revealed the name of Sony’s next-generation PlayStation Portable - PlayStation Vita - during the company’s E3 keynote presentation.

Sony's 3D display bundle is priced at $499.99 and will be available in Japan, North America, Europe/PAL territories and Asia in fall. Additional 3D glasses are priced at $69.99 per pair.
