I'm now suspecting that the 1950's film makers that produced 3D content back in that era were systematically killed off to keep 3D under wraps until the transistor could be developed, which would in turn allow the current crop of TV sets and disc players.
No wonder we stopped seeing 3D content.
Need to sign off now to put the aluminum foil over the windows. They can read your thoughts you know, and I don't want a Sony truck pulling up outside my house anytime soon.
Look, this isn't a Roswell conspiracy or anything like that. This is Sony doing what Sony does. Sony isn't going to do anything that doesn't specifically benefit them. Right now, they are holding back the 3D Blu Ray firmware update from the PS3 for "some" specific reason, that we aren't privy to. There are a number of possibilities as to why they are doing this.
The most logical, is that they know that idiots like myself, are too impatient to wait all the way until November to get 3D Blu Ray support. They also know, that idiots like me, who already own a "potential" 3D Blu Ray player, aren't going to run out and spend $450 on the Panasonic or $400 on the Samsung or whatever. We are going to look for the cheapest option, as a stop-gap solution, just to hold us over till November.
If this is indeed their strategy, then it's working, because it's going to get me to run out and buy one of their $169.99 or $179.99 players, just because I'm too darned impatient to wait around for November or December, for this firmware update to come down the pipe.
Their strategy might have nothing to do with what I'm suggesting, but whatever it is, they are holding it back deliberately, because it benefits them in some way. Maybe they will be releasing a certain 3DTV model, that will be bundled with a PS3 system, and some 3D Blu Ray movies, and they aren't going to push that firmware thru, until the bundle is ready to be sold? Who knows.
