Well, if 3D TV were here to stay, chances are I'd choose Passive 3D over Active-Shutter any day of the week. Sure, Active 3D is good for the hardcore 3D enthusiast, but even there, it could come down to whether you like recharging batteries in those glasses, whether you feel comfortable switching the glasses on and off all the time, and whether or not you like the "fake effect" of it.
This is why I feel Passive 3D will win out over Active-Shutter 3D. Anyone that goes for a 3D TV, Passive is not only more affordable, but it feels a lot less fake than active displays, too, which will no doubt make it better in the long run. Also, I don't complain of eye strain when I'm playing a console game or watching a Blu-ray movie in my PS3, and watching it on my Toshiba 32TL515U display.
