A Sony 3D TV, Blu-ray, PS3 and Move
We got a sweet two weeks with the whole gang from Sony (a 40-inch 3D LED TV, PS3, PlayStation Move and Blue-ray) and though I’ve only used it less half that time, I’ve really enjoyed every minute of it.
I already have a Sony PS3 for over a year now but haven’t played much with it except for watching Blu-ray movies.
So when Sony Philippines brought in and installed what they called the complete set of their Sony 3D World, I thought I’d be burning hours and hours of game time on the couch.
We didn’t have a lot of titles to start with but there’s enough DVDs here to be able to test out every single item on the set.
Little Big Planet and Grand Tourismo 5 on the PS3, Monsters vs. Aliens on the 3D TV, and Heavy Rain for the Playstation Move (which I could not make to work for some reason).
And since the PS3 can also play Blu-ray movies, I rarely used the dedicated Blu-ray player in the 2 weeks we had it.
The LED TV is only 40-inches across (not the biggest we’ve tested) but considering it can play 3D titles and also connect to the internet for you to watch YouTube HD straight on the gorgeous display, that certainly made up for it.
My personal preference though is leaned towards bigger 2D screens than wearing 3D glasses.
If you look at the back panel, you’ll see how slim this LED TV is (Full HD 1080p with 3D, Dynamic Edge LED backlight, Motionflow PRO 240Hz refresh rate, BRAVIA Engine 3, BRAVIA Internet Video, USB port, DLNA Certified). There’s also a dedicated USB port for the WiFi dongle. Those 5.1 speaker system did not come with the set.
You have to give it to Sony for being the only one who can offer a full suite of gaming and entertainment options for your living room. The whole set rounds up to about Php200,000 — not that affordable but you’re getting a top of the line entertainment set here.
They pull this out last week and I’m already missing playing Grand Turismo 5 (so I did the next best thing — take out my Lancer EX for a spin).
