It is a belated Christmas present from my mother. I always wanted a 3D TV (I know I'm foolish) and she was getting me an HD TV after I moved. I saw 3D versions of the TV for $250 more so I gave her the difference.
Thank you. I heard the Batman game was good. Did not hear about Avatar game (but I might get the 3D movie).

There are two types of 3D tvs, Passive and Active-Shutter.
Passive is the oldest and cheapest method, and is generally the method most people have tried. This method displays two-images on the same screen at the same time, which reduces the image clarity. This is why many claim to get headaches or eye strain when viewing. The glasses themselves are the cheaper kind, and are similar to what you might find in the movie theater. Again, this is the cheapest method, but is also the weakest 3D experience.
Active-Shutter is the new 3D type that was co developed by Sony, and involves displaying alternate images on-screen one after the other. Because only one image is shown at any one time, you get a much crisper picture, and with considerable less eye-strain. However, because the tv displays two-images, the glasses need to likewise alternate viewing angles at rapid succession, which means that the glasses need to be charged, and thus they are more expensive.
Depending on which model you have, your 3D experience will be somewhat different. Active-shutter is the best possible method and also reduces eye-strain, but is also more expensive. Passive is the cheapest method, but you get a somewhat blurrier image, which causes eye-strain and headaches in some individuals.
If you don't know which one your tv is, then simply inspect the glasses. If they require charging, then it is a Active-Shutter 3D tv....if they are just ordinary glasses that don't require charging, then it is a Passive 3D tv.
