According to Keepa, they were both $22.99 from December 19th-January 19th. Today the 3D price went up and the 2D price dropped. The tracker isn't flawless, but I trust it to an extent.

If there's still too much ghosting at the default 3D Depth, make sure the depth is 0 on your player as well, if available. It might be under a different name.
