I still enjoy 3D. I bought a little 32" 3D LCD to watch YouTube 3D vids (and as a computer monitor) so I wouldn't waste the projector bulb. For 3D the larger the screen the better the 3D effect. If not for gaming in 3D I wouldn't bother with it. I seldom watch movie and only 3D (no cartoons) because I already had it for gaming. Game Devs could make all games Native 3D so there wouldn't be any technology killing patent wars or monopoly grabs. As far as Sports in 3D, it has to be something closeup to work that's why only the swimming/diving were in 3D at last summer Olympics (which were FREE OTA for England and Australia). The other outdoor winter Olympics looked good enough almost if not better than 3D. Pop-Out is for 1st timers, a gimmick to get you past the flat 3D.
