I am hoping that with the 48fps technology as well as certain 3d technologies being experimented on by Douglas Trumbull it will keep 3d content flowing for the foreseeable future as I love me some 3d.
I just started watching 3D movies at home this week and love them. I think the slow adoption rate can be blamed on the set manufactures and how they sell the 3D equipment. The 3D displays in most stores (Best Buy, Frys) are awful. Usually they are displayed under bright lights, the glasses are dirty, or the demo is hogged by little kids. They should really set up small demonstration rooms that replicate watching in your living room and offer a disc out coupon on the first 3D purchase for those setting through a demo.
You really need to watch 3D in a living room setting to appreciate the format. I was one that thought the format was a gimmick, until I risk investing in the equipment and watching in my own home. Now I'm telling my friends to come watch a 3D movie at my house and you will be sold after watching just one movie.
