Itís ridiculous we have 3D & non-3D Blu-Ray players, HDTVís & BD 3D movies. At the most, I forsee this being only for the very small niche market.
Yep, you got it.

Only time will tell the future of 3d. It has had a few failed runs already. Will THIS time be different? And I bet the proponents on each previous attempt were saying it was "here to stay" just as they are now...

I do not recall THIS much support across the electronics industry nor the studio industry either. Will it come out of niche status? I don't know, but I read recently that there is already over 4 million 3DTVs sold, and I think that is better than I expected this soon (around 5 months) after having them for sale given their high price and the cost of the 3D glasses right now.

My guess is that the 3D tech will trickle down to the lower priced models more each year until it becomes available for at least most mid priced models within two years. Remember that they are pushing this tech hard and they are all doing it, so I think this is easily different from past half-hearted attempts from the past.

If someone owns 1080p sets already why would they want to downgrade?

Who said it was for someone who already owns a 1080P HDTV? Almost 50% of the USA doesn't own ANY HDTV.

Actually, you wouldn't be downgrading, you would be essentially adding the 3D feature to the already HD capability of the HDTV.

I don't understand, is this 1080p or 768p? If it is 768p then it loses a lot of it's sparkle in my eyes.

I'm not saying 3D is viewed in 1080P. I'm saying when you buy a 3D capable 1080P HDTV, then you still can enjoy any and all the HD you previously watched. However, you now have the option to view 3D material.

It would cost nearly nothing to add 3d capablity to every HD TV sold. It would then open the aftersale market for glasses, HDMI cables and 3D players. This is exactly the thing that retailers like Best Buy live for.

I can't see the numbers being that impressive. Not enough that the manufacturers would want to brag about it anyway!
