Sony's 3D gaming TV pushed into 2012

The chances of Sony’s PS3 ready 3D games monitor arriving in the UK this side of Christmas have effectively been ruled out.

The unit was first announced at this year’s E3 in June.

"We have been informed by our supplier that there will be a delay in obtaining stock for this item and it will no longer be released in Europe in 2011," Amazon’s listing for the device now reads.

"If you have ordered this item from us at Amazon.co.uk your order will take longer to fulfill than originally estimated. We are expecting an update in the new year."

The retailer expects to sell the TV for £499. That includes the 24” screen and two pairs of active shutter glasses. One of its key features is the ability for two viewers to watch different 2D content on a single screen at the same time.

Sony had best get a move on – after all, chief executive Howard Stringer reckons that 3D TVs will be in every home by the end of 2012.

Its pointless anyway, you can pick up a 42" lg 3d tv with four pairs of glasses for £480 at the momentf, why do sony think anyone wants to pay close to £500 a 24" with only two pairs of glasses......after Christmas?

Also why the delay? Upon a recent visit to USA there are piles of them in Best Buy, why delay in UK?

The idea of two players on one screen seeing two different images is a great idea, shame they couldn't get it to work with a standard set instead of requiring this custom Sony one.
