If you're sick—literally or figuratively—of 3D now, just wait until the end of the month. HD Guru has Best Buy's schedule for rolling out 3D capable HDTVs and Blu-ray players from Samsung and Panasonic, and they're coming soon.

The Guru claims that sales and demonstrations of 3D gear will commence at 200 Best Buy locations on March 10—as in, like, Wednesday. According to his sources, that initial blast will feature Panasonic's 50" TC-P50VT20 plasma 3D HDTV—we've heard it will retail for around $3500—in tandem with their DMP-BD350 3D Blu-ray player.


On March 21, Samsung will apparently join the fray, showing and schilling their LED 3D HDTVs—the 46" UN-46C7000 and the 55" UN-55C7000—along with the awesome-looking BD-C6900 3D Blu-ray player at 900 Best Buy locations. TechRadar checked out this package earlier this week and said that if you decide to take the plunge, you won't be sorry you did.

We've heard for a while now that Monsters vs. Aliens will be the first 3D Blu-ray movie available, and HD Guru reports that it will be available as part of a promotional package with Samsung's gear on the 21st. [HD Guru]

Can't a plasma already display the blue/red type and the polarized lens type?

I'd only use 3D for video games.

Why do you need a special TV for it? Doesn't it just need the frame rate? I mean Nvidia has their shutter glasses system for the pc.
