It's one thing to buy a new TV, you know what you're in for with a new TV.
Buying a new Blu Ray player and 4x 3D glasses (even if they are 3rd party) will cost me $150+250. So another $400 and that's before I buy a new disc. There's no guarantee that I'll consider 3D movies at home viable for me/family especially given the lack of availability.

Realistically, when my old Blu Ray player craps out I'll replace it with a 3D version but to me it's all about content, perhaps even more than price.

I imagine that the PS3 is still the most popular Bluray player on the market, and it upgrades to 3D support at no additional cost. I expect that 3D support will become standard on mid range TVs as time goes on. So the only cost factor will be the glasses. Depending on how much the prices come down on that, I can easily see a large number of homes 3D enabled at some point in the future.

Having said that, I still expect it to be a novelty, with most viewers preferring to watch most content in 2D. My expectation is that we will see a smaller percentage of movies released in 2012 with 3D support.

Panasonic Study Finds Enthusiasm For 3DTV

Quote:
Los Angeles - A recent consumer study by Frank N. Magid Associates found that a majority of consumers believe 3D significantly improves their television viewing experience.

The study, which was conducted by the market research firm for Panasonic at the recent Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif., last month, queried more than 500 attendees and found that 99 percent of those surveyed who have seen 3DTV perceive it to be at least "somewhat better" than standard HDTV or "2D" TV.

Of those surveyed, 71 percent said that 3DTV is "much better" or "dramatically better" than 2DTV.

Keep in mind there is a decent % of the population that either can't see 3D (Stereo Blind) or 3D invokes side affects like nausea, dizzyness and vertigo due to eye issues

This is how 2012 is shaping up for 3D movies. You also have historical data for 2010 and 2011

As I said before let me know if and when the present home 3D model passes Laserdisc in terms of adoption. Chances are it won't

LOL - that will happen this year. LD only had about 2 million households for adoption. 3DTV will surpass 5 million this year.

Now now. You're always one about inflating numbers. Virtually all new major brand HDTVs sold in the last several months have been 3D equipped. That doesn't mean they are being used for 3D. I don't even know anyone that is using 3D. Most people I know just consider a big joke. Adoption means actually using the feature, which most are not. Nice try yet again Lee.

Really Goofnut? Because YOU don't know anyone using 3D means ALL aren't? They continue to add 3D content. If no one was using the feature, why would they do that?

Did you know that The Lion King had 92% of it's $30M revenue come from 3D tickets?

Your personal opinion is based on your negative attitude towards 3D. But the reality of the situation does jive with it. Like ALL new television formats, growth in the beginning is always small. Both Color TV and HDTV were like that. 3DTV is no different. It takes time. 3DTV is only 16 months old.

Don't you mean your reality of the situation?

The survey you posted was done by a company that is trying to sell 3D products, no?

Growth in the beginning is always small and sometimes it just doesn't get to take root and grow much bigger.

Yet they are still selling 3DTVs and still creating more 3D content.

So how do you explain that?

You want to know how I explain it? This industry is trying to make money from it. Movie studios, theatres, electronics manufacturers and retailers. They are all making money by selling at exaggerated prices. Why wouldn't they be hyping the technology in every way that they can. The economy dictates that the majority are not buying like they used too and this industry found a way to make more money for what they are selling.

The way I see it is, it is what it is.
If you are a fan of 3D great. They are trying to make it better and I hope everyone gets what they want. I'm always skeptical though and have a hard time believing that a large industry like this hasn't manipulated people to get what they want. eg. Panasonic survey at a Disney convention.
