E3 2011: 24" branded monitor released with the intention of lowering cost of 3D gaming

A 24” PlayStation branded 3D monitor was unveiled at the Sony E3 press conference last night by company boss Jack Tretton.

Sony has said that it hopes the monitor, which will be released in a bundle with a pair of glasses, Resistance 3  and a HDMI cable for $499 (£305), will lower the expense of 3D gaming.

The glasses, which are required to view the 3D effect, will cost around $69.99 (£42) separately.

The monitor will also be able to display two distinct full screen images for individual players, allowing splitscreen 3D play.
