Question 3D Movies.... Here to stay, or just HYPE.

EDIT:
Please keep in mind the poll should not read:
Just Hype (like HD-DVD)

It should read:

Just Hype (Will fade like HD-DVD)

Just don't know how to edit it with my phone.

Well I rose the question for you the reader. Do you think the 3D movie technology hitting homes so quick is really going to stay, or just hype and will fade as fast as it hits.

I myself think that 3D is too much of a HYPE, it is ok the first time I saw it. It has some problems

1. It is too dark at some scenes (I took my glasses off once, and I was like damn I can see the picture better) the glasses makes some parts too dark to see all the detail.

2. At some scenes when they are not doing anything close up, it is a bit blurry. Well at least I think it is.

3. I just don't like wearing the glasses (as I don't wear glasses right now).

I know no one if forcing me to see the movies in 3d. But when a movies comes out ONLY in 3D (like Avatar), you have no other option but to watch it in 3D unless I want to wait for the bluray version. Plus when the girlfriend nags and wants to see a movie in 3D, well then you must tag along.

So what is your take on it, is 3D here to say or will it fade out like HDDVD.

I would have answered just hype until you wrote just like HD DVD which was not hype but a viable, completed and fully functional HD media format. Since you seem to hate innovation in technology or a fanboy of only one particular technology, I refuse to answer your poll. Please try to be a little less trite...

3D is here to stay - just like it is in theaters.

The entire industry is getting involved in 3D. Soon 3D will be available from optical disc, cable, SAT and Telco.

I'm sorry, I posted the topic and did not get a chance to review it. I ment to dsay Hype (Fade like HDIDVD), I know HDDVD is a good format, but I ment as far as HDDVD was how fast it came and went. Some people still use it, but bluray is the perfered format. My big reason why I see it fading is, (please correct me if I am wong). People just now bought hdtv's for their bluray movies, now they would be forced to buy another tv just to play this format. With just a very few selection of tv's right now that are 3d ready, they would not to be able to play them on their current model. Also does a special player needed to play 3d movies, or will the bluray players today be able to play them (if not then they would have to buy that as well).

Then it is not like bluray movies who they where able to release older movies in high def. Don't 3d movies have to be recorded at 2 different angles, so that means older movies won't be in 3d(that part I am not sure on)? I myslef just bought.a v10 so I won't be getting a 3d tv for at least 5years or so, how many people are in that same situation. Where they won't be buying te 3d tv anytime soon, which would drop sales of the discs, plus the production cost to make them. So if it don't mabang like bluray did, would it be able to stand the test of time.

I am on my cell phone now, will post more when I get out of work.

Thats cool.

I am just wondering how many people are going to rush out and buy a 3D HDTV when they hit the market? Too many people spent and bought a HDTV. On "Black Friday" I went to BestBuy and people where snatching up HDTV's left and right, they had a special line for checkout.

Do you think right now in the times like it is people are going to say "Oh who cares I spent 1000-3000 on this tv, lets go get another one".

I think the format would be a good option (if it did not need its own special tv to watch them).

It is not like when Bluray came out, all you really needed to start watching it was a Bluray player and not another tv. On-top of that not all Bluray players will support the 3d format (ps3 will by firmware update) so that means on-top of having to get another HDTV, you also have to buy a new Bluray player just to play the content.

I think that hardcore and people with money to spend on something so new, that it won't hit the average person for a few years (TV price, and new player being the biggest problem).

I on the other hand would love to see how games play in 3d, but as for watching movies... nah I would pass (maybe a few here and there) but not worth buying a new HDTV at the moment.

It does not matter if every station offers 3D, it is only going to be watched by who owns a 3D Ready TV

I am not a Fanboy in anyway, if 3D stays alive (when my V10 dies) then yeah I will be getting a 3D HDTV.

You may not be aware of this but HDTV has been available since 1998.

50% of USA Households don't have an HDTV yet.

Only way to deliver the highest quality 3D available - same as the 3D in commerical movie theaters.

No - you need an HDTV to appreciate the HD from Bluray or HD DVD.

Sports in 3D is going to be a BIG draw. Has already been a success - you go to a 3D theater and watch a sporting event live in 3D. Now you will be able to see it in your own home.

Keep in mind that a 3DTV will also be a top of the line HDTV.

I don't think it will get much use and maybe die off. Kinda like it did like 50+ years ago. Even if it becomes viable in a home setting there are a lot of people out there who just simply don't like it. You would also need a huge tv for it to work well.

yeah because right now you watch them at the theater how will it look going from 1000" screen, to a 56" screen at best. Plus you are not going to sit 1-2 feet from your TV, so you won't be surrounded by the picture like you are at the theater.

All the CE companies are very hot on 3D, but it will take some time to possibly catch on. I think we will find that we have to give up sharpness and detail to get 3D so it will not be the "be all end all" tech they are looking for it to be. I am basing this on seeing Avatar in 3D at IMAX.

I know what you mean about the sharpness, I noticed that Avatar was not as sharp as it could of been. It is not the fact of it catching on, it is the fact people will have to buy a new HDTV just to play the content. I will not be buying a new TV until my V10 dies, and I don't think people that already have a HDTV will want to buy another one right now. And for the people that don't have an HDTV they might not even considering buying a HDTV, as they would of had HDTV by now.

Plus the price tag for new tech is always high, so if it takes 2-3years for the price to come down on the 3D TV's, will companies still be interested in it at that time, or would it of faded by then?

Reason why I think it is popular at Theaters is the fact the screen is SO BIG. I just don't think 3D will be justified on a 40-65" TV.

Now if they made a front projector , that had long bulb life of 100,000 hours, that was 3Dready, then I would be all over that.

Personally I think it is good for cinemas but not for prolonged everyday use. 3D gives me headaches and my movies look bada** enough with blu ray. I'm really not interested in 3-D in the home.
