I can't see myself investing in this tech anytime in the near future but I have to admit, I'm very curious to see what you have to say about it SKY, somehow I think the word "headaches" says alot but is it because of playing games in 3D or because of "issues"....hmmm, looking forward to your review

This "tech" seems to come up for computers with the same frequency as it does for movies. (Ask me about "metalstorm 3D" sometime..... :) ).

Metalstorm 3D?...I sort of remember that....but then again I remember being in Disney World back in the '80's when I was blown away with Micheal Jackson's 3D 22 minute film that frankly gave me a new meaning of LSD!...I felt stoned when I left but to quote Tom Petty?..."comin' down...is the hardest thing"

Metalstorm 3D was one of the first movies I took my wife-to-be to while dating. There is absolutely no word in the english language to describe how bad it was........ :)

Yeah, from what I recall it was one of those movies that I went back and asked for my money back and the guy said "are you serious?...this is a GREAT movie!"...I think I said something like "Great, you go watch it again and I'll cover for ya" and ya know?...the SOB almost went for it!...funny, I can remember it was at the Uptown Theatre at Yonge & Bloor in T.O.....Wow!...another '80's flashback!!...just what I needed!...thanks Steve!!...LOL!!

Simply because you won't get as many customers if you have to buy two separate (and overpriced) things in order to get it to work. I say if you are a company that attracts punks with more money than brains, maybe you're in the right business and you can go ahead with that. But for the rest of us...
