Get Free 3D Games With Your 3D-Enabled TV Purchase
Okay, so the prospect of nabbing a 3D-enabled HDTV is an expensive one, but Sony wants to put that new technology on display for free. You know, provided you pony up the cash first.
Sony has already confirmed that the first Bravia HDTVs with full 3D functionality will be in stores this June (which leads us to believe the necessary firmware update for our PS3s will be available that same month). But according to TheSixthAxis, Sony will sweeten the deal by offering free 3D Blu-Ray movies and 3D PS3 games with the purchase of these TVs. For instance, if you decide to buy the first 3D HDTV, the HX800 model, it will come with no less than four 3D stereoscopic titles, which will be available on the PlayStation Network. Just bear in mind that you might not be getting the full game; here are the details:
- Wipeout HD: full 3D game (not including WipEout HD Fury)
- PAIN: 3 x 3D episodes + 1 x 2D tutorial
- Super Stardust HD: full 3D game (not including DLC)
- MotorStorm Pacific Rift: single level 3D demo
Okay, so two are only demos, but hell, the entire Wipeout HD in 3D has gotta be worth a look. By the way, a couple of the free 3D Blu-Ray movies that will come bundled with certain HDTVs will be "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" and "Deep Sea." So if you're willing to shell out for a Sony 3D HDTV come June, you should be able to snag some free goodies to go along with it, simply for the sake of testing out this new fancy technology.
