Anyone picking this up ?? I also found this for 3D fans
The Blu-ray Disc Association has been wrestling with this one for a while, but now it's official. The much awaited 3D specification for Blu-ray discs has been decided on. Most of the information to come out of the announcement is what we expected, but there are a few surprises in there.
The codec being used for 3D video is MVC, an extension of the AVC codec that we're already familiar with. 3D file sizes are about 50% larger on average, which shouldn't be much of a problem for Blu-ray. Thankfully, multiple versions of the same movie won't have to go out, since the MVC encoding is fully backwards compatible to a 2D picture.
3D movies will play without any quality loss in full 1080p. Graphical menus will be fully 3D which is to be expected, but the announcement of 3D subtitles raises a few questions. It will be interesting to see exactly how readable the subtitles are and whether they compliment or hinder the 3D effect.
Playstation 3 owners will be happy to hear that 3D playback will be possible on their game consoles. It's fairly safe to assume that this will be coming in the form of a firmware update in the next few months. There's no word on other older players getting updates at the moment.
The Blu-ray Disc Association also points out that 3D on Blu-ray is 'display agnostic'. That is to say that whether you're watching on an LCD or Plasma, you're going to get the full 3D experience.
the 3D tvs are a waste of money at the moment because there still isnt alot of products yet that are compatible with it. and plus to get the 3D image on your tv you gotta wear the glasses just like at the theater
It's not £34.99 at least, it's £24.99 for the blu ray steelbook.
As I'm not bothered about special features/extras on most films, I'll be getting the limited edition steelbook with t-shirt/book/art cards/dvd version and so on. Decided to get it even if no 3D, pointless getting 3D now for this film.
