Sony Personal 3D Viewer "No Longer Available" At Sony Store
If you didn't take the opportunity to pre-order Sony's new HMZ-T3W personal 3D visor, you've already missed out until Sony restocks.
As you can see over at the Sony Store, the nifty headset is "no longer available." Seems like a lot of people had the $1,000 required to pick it up.
This is the third version of the head-mounted display technology that debuted in 2012. The visor also features a "Game Mode" which is designed to "enhance shape details." Here's part of the description:
"It's the perfect way to enjoy favorite titles, from fast paced shooters to tire-burning racing. Plus, there is no fumbling for the right keys or buttons in mid-game--the ergonomic visor-style headset gives an unobstructed 'look-down' view of your keyboard or controller while you play."
The device is compatible with a Windows PC or the PlayStation 3, but it's not a dedicated gaming VR headset like the Oculus Rift. One upgrade from its predecessor is that the HMZ-T3W isn't connected to an AC power pocket, which lets users go wherever they wish. This one is also lighter, and features two 720p OLED displays and virtual 7.1 surround sound. It will be officially released next month, so maybe you want to add it to your holiday wish list. Got some generous friends...?
