Sony Introduces a PlayStation Branded 3D Monitor for $499

Posted Wed Jun 8, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The 24 inch set offers 1080p resolution, LED backlighting, and more.

This may come as a bit of a surprise, but serious gamers - the guys racking up the highest scores and competing professionally - aren't playing on massive 70 inch sets. Instead, they prefer a sweet spot between 22 and 24 inches.

Sony's new PlayStation branded monitor comes in at 24 inches and is made specifically for gamers. It's LED backlit, 3D capable, and comes with a pair of 3D glasses as well as a copy of 'Resistance 3,' which will be coming out right around the same time as this set.

Perhaps the coolest feature of the PlayStation TV is the special two-player split screen mode. When playing a game that would normally divide the screen in two, you can use the TV's unique split-screen mode and 3D glasses to send one image to player one and the other to player two.

The set will run $499 when it releases this fall.
