If it requires glasses it's not true 3D. All it is, is a cheap way to fake 3D. True 3D involves tracking the position of the viewer's head with infrared. This type of stuff Acer and nVidia are pushing are gimmicky garbage that's been around technology wise for decades.

Maybe at the moment. Don't forget this is a rather new product segment, the early versions are bound to be on the not-so-great side. In the future I bet the will drastically improve on the quality.

Although very true, it is not possible to allow more than one viewer with a head tracking system. I do expect that in a few years we will start to see head tracking for individual users. That probably won't be until after the current systems gather much greater popularity and companies see reason to develop products like that.
too early to spend that much money on not quite developed technology. better to wait a year or two before they get it right. i'm not really sold to the idea of too realistic 3D games anyway. you're gonna shoot that darn alien immediately and not admire it. if the frame rates suck, the game sucks. 3D videos? the current ones look quite acceptable to me. HD videos do look a lot nicer but the file is too big and requires more cpu power to play.

I'm pretty sure it's illegal to blow people apart with overpowered guns in real life. Besides, have you ever used them??? I had a set of shutter ones about 4 years back, and games like Doom III looked AWESOME!!!!
Odd that this is talking about applying some sort of silly 3D effect to 2D video files rather than some more "serious" application like AutoCAD. Do we really need to see silly kittens on YouTube in fake 3D?
