3D is still popular and requested? I thought that was through being a "Thing" like in the 80's when nobody cared then and a small portion of brick heads bought $5,000 dollar T.V's with those insanely expensive glasses after Avatar! Everyone remembers that, right?

.


Lol, for the past year or so, stores around here couldn't give away 3-D televisions. That fad died off quick!


Really? Do you work in all those stores in the TV department? Or are you just talking out of your ass?

I have a question for the people saying it doesn't play 3D Bluray movies. I don't have a 3D TV or the glasses or any of that. Does the PS4 not run those movies in 3D for use with 3D TV's and glasses, and instead runs it like a regular movie? Or does it completely not play them at all? I assume the former, but want to be sure.

3D is effectively dead in gaming (outside of the 3DS) but still has life in movies. I'd expect to see it patched in later possibly along with media server support.

It doesn't matter because any time you buy a 3D movie it comes with a non-3D version. But I am assuming that it doesn't play the 3D discs at all, because if it could we wouldn't need non-3D versions of blu rays.

For the same reason it doesn't play 5.1 through HDMI? They rushed it, perhaps?

F***ing what??

I see. Thanks for that. I've never seen what comes in a 3D blu ray case, as nobody in my peer group has the glasses to watch 3D movies. I didn't know they come with an additional disc for non-3D.

Only poor people who haven't been exposed to 3d in the home actually want it.

It's trash.

It's better at home than in theaters. Are you too poor to get a good set up?
