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.
