I first should say that I dont know how true this is but im sure that some of you guys/girls will know if its true.

Sorry if its i the wrong place too, I put it here because it is a deal but is bank holiday monday only (if it is indeed true)

Today I was told that on bank holiday monday between 10am and 12pm, richersounds will be selling the samsung 63" 3D plasma tv for £2000, these terms apply, You must pre order it instore between 10am and 12pm (delivery will be beginning of may), you must also purchase a wall bracket and bly ray player in the same transaction, Thats all.

Simply buy any blu ray player and wall bracket and get the tv for £2000. I think that the tv is normally about £2700.

£2000 is a bit to much for me to spend but maybe some of you are looking for a new tv.

no probs, just seems cheep for a massive tv and its 3d, i dont know what you want a 3d tv for but im guessing its the future. It was one on them annoying expanding adverts on a website that i clicked bu accident, lead me to this deal announcment.

Its a shame its £2000 because I can not afford £2000, My car was only £2400 so I could not justify spending 2k on a tv.

Mmm MW 2 in 3D :)

Good deal by the way if you have to have the latest technology... Viewed Avatar in 3D on this Samsung in a Currys megastore, very nice, assuming you are happy to wear 3D glasses... Not for me, will stick with my plasma (& save £2k of course).

Yeah, it's the emperor's new clothes all over again. Those with money to burn / waste (aka early adopters) can pay this silly sum of cash.

Infinity Ward are still going.

As for games in 3D they just don't work very well as it's hard to orientate yourself around a 3D environment. Also they cant create a crisp enough 3D image to provide efficient control fidelity.

I don't think 3D TV will take off but it's always better to have a TV that does it than one that doesn't.

Inifinity Ward, the people who make Modern Warefare have gone through some big changes since the release of Modern Warefare 2, the 2 heads of the company, fired, followed by 10+ staff who resigned, these were mostly leads within infinity ward. Their is not a good feeling within the office apparently, they will struggle to produce a game that matches the quality of MW 1 + 2. They might live up to the pressure, but the general feeling within the gaming community is that Infinity Ward is dieing a slow death, thanks to the money hungry Activision.

But good news, the people who have left have formed 'Respawn Entertainment', signed a publishing deal with EA, and now fully control any IP they make. In other words, EA cant milk them like they did with the original Medal Of Honors, and Activision cant milk them like they did with COD.

Anyway,

Hot deal, but 2000!? I have like 300 in the bank :'(

steer clear of 3d for the moment - going to be several different types of 3d tv available - a bit of a format war on the horizon which could leave your type outdated

"steer clear of 3d for the moment "


yeah right .. 4D is coming out :w00t::w00t::w00t:

Wonder how many square inches this is and how much per square inch it works out... bet it is quite cheap when you look at it like that...???
#16
Regardless of 3D isn't this just a great price for a 63" screen anyway? I reckon it is.

There is no format war, the constant is Blu-ray 3D which delivers the picture. Samsung's glasses may not work with LG's or Sony's but they are basically all doing the same thing with their TVs.

WTF IS DIS REAL?

This is just a prank- I heard the universe was either 10D or 22D anyway so I'm going to wait this one out. :)
#19
To clarify on that MW2 comment.

About 30 employees have quit Infinity ward, And IW are suing Activision for not paying them their due's.

And further to the MW2 3D comment, this will only play in 3D if they patch it to be 3D which is only cape-able on the PS3.

So i think making MW2 in 3D is the last thing that Activision/IW are concerned about.


lol.

Just worked out square inches using http://www.cavecreations.com/tv2.cgi:

32" TV = 438.03 square inches
37" TV = 582.82 square inches (+33.1%)
40" TV (most common size) = 684.04 square inches (+17.4%)
52" TV (my current size) = 1155.15 square inches (+68.9%)
63" TV (biggest commonly available) = 1696.41 square inches (+ 46.9%)

so at £2000 the 63" one works out at just £1.18 per square inch which I think is brilliant value for money!!!! Not much different to a decent 40" for probably £600 odd which would be maybe 90p per inch...

Yes 3D porn has been around for at least 50 years or at least softporn has. Porn studios are busy filming in 3D already.

Actually it will end up with a format war as it is an emerging range of technologies. There are versions with and without glasses, but put simply it is worth sitting back and seeing how things are going to go heading forward.

At the moment there has been no final decision as to which route is going to be taken as the standard for 3d TVs and entertainment.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3D_television#Standardization_efforts

So it will be several standards just like bluray and HDdvd, or VHS and betamax, though not as sided as those format wars were but there are quite a range of different technologies vying to be the one that is the dominant choice for the consumer as each type has their own advantages so worth waiting to see what one wins out and which works out the best. Good deal though for latest tech and for the size of the thing. That said its £2000+ all the other stuff you have to buy and likely will be T&Cs that mean its vastly overpriced!

For about the millionth time, it does not matter what type of 3D TV you get, THERE WILL NOT BE A FORMAT WAR. All 3D sources (e.g. Sky 3D HD, BluRay 3D etc.) will play on ANY 3D TV.

It is true one type of 3D TV may become favoured or dominant but that DOES NOT mean you cannot watch your 3D films and/or sport or whatever on it. The choices are active shutters 3D glasses, passive 3D glasses (polarised) or glassless 3D. Of the three types glassless is the weakest at the moment as no manufacturer has yet got a decent prototype of good enough picture quality.

Having said all that, I wouldn't be an early adopted of 3D TV just yet, there simply isn't enough programming out there to justify spending big money on a 3D TV.

There will be a format war as each manufacturer will try to lure you into using their specific licenced technology as no one format has been agreed, just that bluray will support all main versions of 3d TV. Plus with the glasses and what not its likely going to be like the way of HDdvds where they become more and more difficult to get replacements and parts. As with all emerging tech as I said earlier steer clear and let the rich kids waste the money for now and wait to see what tech works the best overall for the type of use you plan to conduct.

Par example; HDdvd player drives for the xbox, when was the last time you saw one of those readily for sale on the high street as new.

It's actually something like 25+ staff, on one site I read 37 staff I think. Infinity Ward is basically dead, too many of the key members have left, they are no longer Infinity Ward really, except for the name.

Disconcerting that somebody knows that porn has been around in 3D for 50 years!!..........well soft porn anyhow.......could get messy in 3D on a 63 incher.............:w00t:

Well for a Plasma TV of this size the price premium isn't so great for a TV in 3D. Even a cheap normal (non-3D) 63" TV will set you back some £1,500. Will take ages before a 63" 3D will fall in the under £1000 bracket.

This is a hot deal if true, but it ain't really a £2000 deal because you have to buy other stuff to get it at this price. Don't you also have to buy the 3D glasses separately on this set?

I kind of frown upon Plasmas now, mostly because of their energy waste, you end up paying the initial price difference from plasma to lcd in 1-2 years.

That doesn't make sense because Plasma's tend to be more expensive then LCD anyway. It'll be more accurate to say you'd pay extra Twice for the privilege of a plasmas screen. Worth it though in my opinion when it comes to 50"+ sizes.

Its not in the VIP email, if it were a real deal they would be pushing it a little harder you would think.

Infinity Ward is not "dead".

Activision pushed IW hard for a November release. IW released an unfinished product they weren't happy with (and didnt get paid that much with everything being bonused on royalties). Vince and Zampella got tapped up by EA (Activisions biggest competitor sensing a talent steal), Activision found out, got ****** (understandably), sacked them (so they didnt get their royalties), turns out many of IW's leads were annoyed by this and left to Respawn (funded by EA), the head of recruitment has also left for Respawn.

However Activision are extremely wealthy, there is an abundance of talent out there in video games and many people who'd want to make their careers out of a surefire success like Call of Duty.

The video games industry is ruthless, very long hours and not fantastically paid. But hey, life's like that.

TV is good though

This is nothing like the HD-DVD and BluRay war or indeed the Betamax and VHS Wars. You couldn't watch a HD-DVD in a BluRay player or vice-versa. The 3D TV situation is entirely different, the way the signal is delivered by the source, whether this is Sky+ HD 3D or BluRay 3D is IDENTICAL. How this signal is processed is dependant upon your TV. At the moment Panasonic, Samsung, LG and Sony have thrown their hats into the ring. Each have their own propriety hardware but it doesn't matter which one you buy, you will still be able to watch your 3D source.

To say BluRay is supporting the main 3D formats is totally false. It will only encode its BluRay disc with one 3D codec same as Sky+HD 3D. There is no way Sky will be transmitting THREE different signals to cater for three different types of 3D codecs; they simply could not do that on the same channel, the bandwidth does not exist to do that.

Most people will buy based on a variety of factors including brand loyalty, reviews, plasma or lcd/led, family and friends etc. The only 'lure' will be same as now which TV delivers the best picture quality for the £, which technology you prefer (lcd, lcd/led or plasma). Ultimately there does not have to be one winner because they all can live side by side. You can watch your 1080p HD movies regardless of whether your screen is a LCD or LCD/LED or Plasma; the same will apply to 3D TVs.

The is a great description. I tend to be an early adopter because I want to support technology advances and I'm fortunate enough to be able to afford it. I've been a bit worried about jumping to 3d though because I've found the reviews confusing with regard to the description of the formats.

Rep added. Big Thanks

Maybe on consoles, on the PC the game developers don't need to do it, the drivers do it, the nvidia ones atleast can make most games 3D.


I was going to say exactly the same thing. If you want to play games in proper 3D now, don't go for a big TV, buy one of the Nvidia 3D capable graphics cards. All first person games use 3D algorithms for generating the images, Nvidia just go one further and keep the depth of the image. I believe it works well, although the 3d cards are slightly lower performing than the 'top end' cards you can buy (they have to work twice as hard for the same resolution and framerate), and there is the normal 3d-induced headaches.

So if you want MW2 in 3D, go get a PC! :-D
