So, OK, all things being equal (GO PASSIVE, I say), this is my conclusion:
1. All special Blu-ray presentations, whenever applicable, SHOULD INCLUDE THE 3D AS AN EXTRA OPTION. What's one more disc in a bundle/combo package anyway? Consider Princess And The Frog (not 3D): as of today, the 3-disc combo is OVER 30 dollars on amazon! The 2-disc is ALMOST 30 dollars! Prometheus collector's 4-disc edition is well worth including a 3D disc for UNDER 30 dollars IN CASE YOU NEED IT SOME DAY!!! $24.97 amazon price today, BTW.
All those against having that 3D disc will someday be happy to own it, since their TV, BD player etc will soon be 3D capable (ALSO MORE INCLUSIVE AS TIME MARCHES ON). I mean, c'mon! SOMEBODY in their homes is BOUND to want to see ANY MOVIE in 3D eventually!
2. If I could have my way, I would make Blu-ray 3D EXCLUSIVELY for passive set-ups: that extra Full HD image (one for each eye
) information takes up the space of AN ENTIRE SECOND MOVIE -- image-wise anyway. Correct me if I'm wrong, but a PASSIVE Blu-ray 3D disc would contain only the information (contained in single-movie storage) for a divided constant image filling the 1080 lines without the need for your devices to be skipping from left-eye to right-eye and back a jizillion times per sec LOL, leaving space for extra goods -- and thus making 3D much more affordable?
Of course that has other serious implications into the actual market (let alone SONY/SAMSUNG/PANNY/etc consumers) and probly would never happen, but one indeed can dream! Boy, ACTIVE should NEVER HAVE EVEN EXISTED in the first place! It gives people headaches even when not using it!
3. The way I see it, 3D quality is ever improving upon itself, so 3D shall live on!!!
