Just seen some article about 3D TV

"The great experiment in 3D television is over. Effective this year, no more manufacturers are offering the 3D feature on their HDTV models, choosing instead to push for 4k Ultra HD without 3D (even though the two can easily co-exist).

Does this development upset you, or have been you cheering for the death of 3D?" 

Let's discuss  :thumbsup:

Well, I don't utilise my 3D TV as much as I would like to. That said i've lost all my local Video stores that i used to rent 3D movies from and now use netflix and apple TV (last gen) so my options are limited. It never really grabbed me as much as i would have thought it would.

I've had my 3D TV a few years and have used the feature about five times. So no loss as far as I'm concerned.

I sold my 3D TV after buying 4K UHD TV without 3D a couple of months ago. I have several blu-rays with 3D but I rarely watched the 3D versions of my movies, so I'm not going to miss them much.

Yeah I have watched every movie in 3D that I own and once is kinda enough, I mean it really doesnt add anything and not having seen them in 3D isn't much of a loss. There are only a handful that are worth checking out in 3D anyway.

Have a 3d TV for like the last 4 years, think I used the feature 3-4 times initially to play with it but have forgotten it even was a think till now. 
I did play Sly Cooper all in 3D on my PS3 in that initial time which was very cool but yeah if you dont have games in 3D , or Movies in 3D, Netflix or TV options in 3D you really arent going to be forced to use it or enjoy it.

I think with VR becoming the new thing , the 3D would be stupid to be kept esp as I said the media just wasn't there to use it enough.

Next up will be Curved screens... that'll be the next thing they'll stop doing lol

I still use it from time to time for gaming, just a shame the PS4 doesn't utilise many games. Still have heaps on the ps3 though.

It's interesting isn't it. 3DTV was the bees knees it was the future it was just a matter of time before the price came down and everyone bought it and 2d would be such old technology. Kinda feels like were in that same hype stage with vr doesn't it? Wonder if vr will manage to be more than just a cool distraction

I only have a 3D TV because when I was buying my new TV they were ALL 3D. If I could've got the same TV without 3D slightly cheaper I would've. That said I have since purchased some 3D Blurays and used it a handful of times.

Yeah, same here actually. Only found out it was 3D when I got it home and unpacked the glasses lol

Yeh 3d is cool but rarely used in my house. I would have loved it but couldn't get over the way the resolution was halved when i was playing gran turismo in 3d mode.

Went to browse around at JB, Noel's and H. Norman yesterday, none of new models are UHD + 3D.
My project of 75" has to wait.

I think the VR goggles will kill off not just 3D TV.. but TV in general!

You're right about that. No need to sit in a dedicated room to watch something anymore, now you can pop the screen in front of your eyes and take it around anywhere you go. It could effectively kill the cinema-going experience too. Large screens are only effective to the relative distance of our eyes. With VR taking up the entirety of your vision, it beats buying any large screen TV or going to the Big Screen for a cinematic experience.

 

Imagine having a PS4 built into one. It'd be great as a portable gaming/movie/media device.
