Sony sweetens PlayStation 3D Display pre-orders with Resistance 3

You may remember when Sony unveiled its new PlayStation 3D Display at E3 2011, which lets two players play on the same monitor with no split screen. Since then, the PS3-friendly set has received a variety of bundle deals, but Sony’s latest special offer for the 24” 3D monitor will include a copy of MotorStorm: Apocalypse – and a copy of Resistance 3 for those who pre-order.

In addition to MotorStorm: Apocalypse, the $499 bundle includes the display, an HDMI cable, and a pair of PlayStation 3D glasses. Place a pre-order with your favorite participating retailer before Sept 30 and you'll also get Resistance 3. If you were already planning on buying the FPS, that's a saving of $59, making the set a mite more reasonable.

Of course, if you were planning on buying Resistance 3 anyway, you might prefer to have the game on its Sept 6 launch, rather than in November when the display ships. Online buyers will have to wait for the display itself before receiving Resistance 3 to play on it, whereas retailers such as GameStop are offering the bonus in-store as soon as the game becomes available.

    The primary issue still stands, though: 3D TVs just aren't very good. That's why they're not selling.

    My current display is 23.6" but can't do 3D, is a 24" 3D display worth the upgrade? I mean for that price I could get a 40" Bravia, it won't be 3D but it will be nearly twice the size.

    I've been really wanting to upgrade my tv, and this seems like a really good deal. I just have one question though. Does anyone know if the whole "split screen" being thing works with any game, or will it be just games programmed to work like that (Motorstorm, Resistance 3, and future titles)? So would I be able to play something that already came out with 3D like Black Ops?

    I am thinking about the same thing too. I hope it all games...If not, MW3, battlefield 3, and any other good game must have it.

    When you say that the bundle includes a pair of PlayStation 3D glasses, does that mean just one pair or...wait, I think I just answered my own question.

    @RandyChimp, i completely agree with you. i have a terrible old flat screen, and i could really use a monitor. unfortunately finding a job on a small campus is kinda difficult. lmao also, what is with these captchas? im getting calc expressions.

    Sort of tempted and wishing it'd come out sooner. Just got an apartment at university, and i dont watch much tv. I'd rather just have a moniter.

    that thing looks really nice. i kind of wish i didnt already have an HD tv so i could get this. but alas, i do. this would be nice for a desk though. i wonder when we'll see some KB ads
