8K is one reason 3D as a process is out. That doesn't mean 3D as an effect is out but that it is implicit in further display advancement. I read one reviewer say that the native 8K he saw on Sony's Z9G is 3-dimensional, because distant objects are now able to be resolved, while near objects have tremendous immediacy. He said the subjective effect is like looking out a window instead of at a screen. At the show Sony is using the buzzword, "realness".
It's not just a numbers game. Greater pixel density is necessary to scale up the visual impact of larger, 85-inch-and-over screens at close viewing distances, towards the total visual field which goggles achieved at the cost of brain damage. Even discounting the hype factor, it suggests the direction TV makers are going to achieve glasses-free 3D. Just something else to consider about 8K and beyond.
