Once flicker glasses are gone and passive is the norm. It will be big.
Besides being cheaper and universal, passive technology is still infirior to active technology. The universal thing will end within the next year since Samsung, Sony and Panasonic, all announced the 3D alliance. It means all active 3D glasses made after a certain date will be universal. Right now, depending on what TV and glasses combo your using, you no longer see the flickering from the active glasses.
Just 2 nights ago, I watched parts of the movie Despicable Me in both active and passive. The active set produced better/brighter colors, more depth to the picture and less ghosting. The active set is also capable of 1080p 3D while the passive can only do 720p.
If I had a large family, I would definitely purchase a passive 3D set due to the cheaper price of the glasses. Hell, you can even get them for free. Right now its just my wife and I so spending $150 on 3D glasses to get a better looking 3D picture is worth it to me.
