For people who are big PS3 fans, I'm sure you are aware of the new simulview display Sony released for the PS3. It allows 2 people to play a game both in full screen and have 2 different views.
This can be done with just about any 3D projector that uses a external 3D sync emitter and supports 3D frame-packed, side by side, and top/bottom.
I have a Titan Reference 3D projector and originally had purchased the Xpand 3D glasses. I was never happy with them. I then bought the RealD CE4 glasses. What a huge difference in quality. Not knowing at the time, but those glasses have a really awesome feature. They can display not only in 3D mode, but they also have a 2D left eye mode, and a 2D right eye mode. Originally I saw the benefits for this when lots of family wanted to watch a 3D movie, but then one or two people did not like the 3D effects. Their glasses could just be put in 2D so that both eyes were synced with either the left eye picture only or right eye picture only. This helped everyone in the family be able to enjoy a movie together regardless if someone didn't like 3D.
Then i learned about the PS3 Simulview display, and it dawned on me that the RealD CE4 glasses were basically the same thing that came with that display. Either they synced normally for a 3D image, or both eyes would sync only to the left image or right image.
So anyone that has a PS3 and a 3D projector that has an external 3D emitter, you should consider the RealD CE4 glasses and emitter. That will allow you not only to enjoy 3D movies and games, but allows you and a friend to both game in full screen on the same screen simultaneously.
