Sony has announced a new 3D display with multi-screen support, designed to complement the PS3, which will be available later this year for AU$699.95.

The PlayStation-branded TV is a 24-inch monitor that looks like a PSP and includes two pairs of 3D glasses. While the overseas version includes an HDMI cable and a copy of Insomniac's September-dated Resistance 3, no bundle has yet been announced locally. Prices for extra glasses will be outlined at a later date.

Sony filed a patent 12 months ago that enables two users to multi-screen game using 3D glasses on the same TV, and we finally see the fruits of this labour.

But, just in case you missed it, this monitor doesn't include either a PlayStation or an on-board tuner. Compatibility with PCs at this point is unknown.

What do you think about this? Will you be buying one? Let us know in the comments below.

doesnt sony thinks 24 inch is abit small for a gaming monitor,,, the point of this is to get rid of ur old big >40"< full hd tv and get a 24" monitor in ur living room. nthin to be seen from 3 metre distance

I would buy one, but wouldn't use it, so ultimately, it's pointless to me, however, I love the concept of the idea and it could come in useful when guests are over. I think it's reasonably priced to, but I don't understand why they chose the monitor to be so small. 32" TV was the smallest I could play on my own and with friends 40" was pushing it. Don't think I'd like it's microscopic size. I guess that's why they needed the whole each player can only see their screen.
on a 50" TV you'll practically see the same thing, just in a different ratio.
