Early adopters USUALLY get screwed really hard so stay away for a while. Don't pay for something that might not even have all the features from the start. Remember almost any device in the past 10 years and youll know what I mean. Right now it comes to mind those huge HDTV sets that only had component in, no hdmi no nothing, and before those they werent even HD just the big size screen dang.

Ok, so the ps3 needs to send the signal to the tv so it can tell the glasses how the signal is to match the tv with the glasses.

Well the PS3 needs to pass a proper "3d" signal to the TV, which is either side by side or top and bottom (one half for each eye which is the easiest, though you loose resolution). There is also the checkerboard format, interleaved format, and quite a few others. The attached image that I found may help explain it better.

But, once the TV gets the signal, it will be able to interpret it properly, and signal the glasses for what image goes to which eye.

Luckily for all of us, its not anaglyphic - hate those red/blue glasses, terrible they are. Depending on the technology, either by using polarized lenses, or shutter based glasses it will be accomplished (the 3d) - really depends on the TV manufacturer.

I've dig some other interesting info. Apparantly, if you buy Bravia 3D TV, you'll get four 3D-ready PS3 games for free: WipEout HD, MotorStorm Pacific Rift, PAIN, and Super Stardust HD.

But, oh, the glasses are 100 GBP, too expensive, if you ask me

Hey good stuff, yea they are expensive however if you buy Sony's 3D tv then you get from what I've heard 2 free glasses, but yes they are extremely expensive and the glasses are not universal so it is right now a huge money scheme.

I refuse to buy a new tv and need the glasses if I can do it on my tv with the glasses I'll get the glasses but I will not buy a new tv for 3d unless I do not need to wear the glasses. And on a side note 200 dollars for a pair of 3d glasses is ridiculous.
