Well, with 3D, you actually want to get closer to your screen. The more it takes up part of your peripheral vision, the better. I don't have a DLP, but my Samsung legacy 3D plasma does Checkerboard, and it would be an even lower true resolution than the 1080p DLP's (1360 x 768, and then checkerboard). The thing is, when I was playing the Avatar game on the Xbox 360, I honestly didn't notice any kind of dramatic reduction in resolution while playing the game in 3D. I played the game both in 2D and 3D, and you'd think the huge drop in resolution would be more noticeable, but it really wasn't. It seemed pretty much the same. I know that doesn't make sense, but that was my impression.
