With summer shaping up to be the flashpoint for 3DTV, Sony is going official with its ‘best value’ 40in HX803 set. That value? Around £1,400 – a good dint less than the two grand we were expecting the 3D Bravia range to start at.
And there’s a bonus for early adopters, too, with Sony promising four free 3D games (Wipeout HD, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, PAIN and Super Stardust HD) for PS3 to anyone who buys a Bravia 3DTV.
Spec details on the HX803 show up a 200Hz frame rate, 1080p, LED backlighting and 2D-to-3D conversion.
The company has announced that the PS3 will get its 3D update before the HX803 goes on sale in June. Other models in the range – the LX903 and HX903 – will hit shelves later.
‘Selected 3D products’ will be bundled with 3D Blu-ray discs, either Deep Sea or Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. (The CWACOM BD will be in shops on June 14).
So, there you have it. 3DTV, plus four 3D games and the possibility of a free 3D movie – yours for a ton under £1,500.
