Go into your local Best Buy and they have 3D sets on display. They look like shit. Then you put the glasses on ... Oh, btw, you generally get one pair of glasses with it, and extras are $150 per pair.
Why would one need to buy new glasses. My local Best Buy has the same kind of 3-D glasses they give out at the theatres with their 3-D TV display. So really, all you'd need to do is just keep the 3-D glasses next time you go to the theatre to see a 3-D movie.
But yeah, I'm not too thrilled with this news myself. I've given up on 3-D movies and have no interest in 3-D TV shows.
