Re: Active shutter specs? Bye then.
I tried out active tech at a Sony showroom sometimes back. There was noticeable flickering from the lighting in background. And oh, the test specs' batteries died halfway through. However, I later tried out LG's Passive TV. I liked how the specs doesn't cause the lighting around to flicker.
But the thing that sold me on the LG TV was the price of the set- it cost only half of Sony's Active 3D equivalent.
So yeah. Nevermind that Sony's 3D is somewhat flickery (and had not only demonstrated to the very embarrassed salesman what happens when you forget to charge the glasses before handing it to a potential buyer for testing, but also demonstrated to me what happens if I forget to charge the glasses before a movie or gaming session), but the price also needs to be much more competitive...
As for two player simultaneous gaming, I typically don't fancy having visitors in my hacker cave. So It's a non-feature for me anyway.
