Remember the 24″ PlayStation-branded 3D display that Sony announced at E3 last year? Well, you can finally pick one up at retail stores here in Singapore starting next Thursday, February 16, for the recommended retail price of $699. Price includes one pair of 3D glasses and an HDMI cable. Additional pairs of 3D glasses are priced at $89.

Positioned as a relatively inexpensive way for gamers to experience stereoscopic 3D content in PS3 games and Blu-ray movies, this LED-backlit display will also support SimulView, which eliminates the need for “split-screens” during, say, a co-op run through Killzone 3 by letting two players see completely different, full-screen images (through the aid of those 3D glasses) on the same display.

Games that currently support SimulView include Gran Turismo 5 Spec II, Motorstorm 3: Apocalypse, Killzone 3, and Star Strike HD. The following PS3 games do not support SimulView, but are 3D-enabled:  Tekken Hybrid, Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, NBA2K12, God of War: Origins Eollection, and EyePet & Friends.

Although the display is PlayStation branded, you can connect any device – other gaming consoles, your laptop – through any of its two HDMI connectors or one component port.

The PlayStation 3D display is 35mm thin (at its thickest part), features a high image contrast of 5000:1, wide viewing angle at 176-degrees and a 4ms grey-to-grey average response time. Audio-wise, the display is outfitted with two stereo channels and one subwoofer.
