Aliens don’t stand a chance

The first Plays­ta­tion screen lets play­ers see dou­ble in the best way, writes Jen­nifer Dud­leyNi­chol­son

But it is the dual-screen mode, called Simul­view, that is the real high­light of this TV.

Us­ing the same 3D tech­nol­ogy that de­liv­ers a dif­fer­ent im­age to each of the user’s eyes, this TV de­liv­ers dif­fer­ent images to each pair of glasses in­stead. Play­ers must wear the 3D glasses for it to work, but they can sit side by side and watch two to­tally dif­fer­ent images on the same screen.

Gamers will have to reg­u­larly en­gage in co-op­er­a­tive bat­tles to re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate this ad­di­tion, but it’s an in­no­va­tive and im­pres­sive use of ex­ist­ing TV tech­nol­ogy.

Given the size of the PlayS­ta­tion 3D Dis­play, it’s likely to be use­ful for games alone and won’t re­place any­one’s main tele­vi­sion.

If you can af­ford a game­only screen, this one could be a smart in­vest­ment.
