Can 3D TV really make it big?;contentBody for more information on this topic.

Wouldn't it be awesome to live the experience of a show by watching it in 3D on your in home television? We are all aware that we've steered away from the old school red and blue 3D glasses cut out of cardboard and handed out as promotional tools at Wal-Mart, but what is the future?  Our TVs display pictures in a 2D format; what does it require to make it "pop?"

Six major TV makers have already developed 3D-displaying TVs, and while still very expensive they are available.  But there is still the question of, how does it work?

Yes, you still have to wear glasses.  However, the glasses are battery operated and work in a specific way so that your eyes see in a 3D format.  These glasses allegedly create less of the "3D headache" that the old glasses did.  You won't be able to enjoy your 3D TV without these glasses, either.  So make sure you have enough for that football party you're planning!

Current HDTVs do not have the technology to be upgraded.  You would need to purchase a new TV regardless.  That is, of course, if you have any interest in the 3D programming.

Will this idea stick?  Or will it be like Nintendo's Virtual Boy-an overpriced gimmick that fails extremely quickly?  In my opinion, there will be a day when technology becomes more advanced, but right now 3D TV sounds sort of like the Riddler's invention in Batman Forever.  But, instead of transferring (and stealing) data directly to and from your brain, you have to wear the ruddy glasses and look like a fool watching your television.  3D TV (the current design) seems simply like a tech novelty.

The NES Still Reigns as Best 8-Bit System

How much would you be willing to pay for a rare, collectible NES game?
$50? $1,000?
How about $41,300?  Well, that is how much this wonderful eBay buyer payed for this sealed Stadium Events NES game, which was originally going to be sent to Good Will as a donation, but upon seeing one purchased on eBay for $13,000, Dave from Kansas decided to throw it on to eBay, a game that was part of a 185+ collection of NES games.

According to, Stadium Events has these values:
Stadium Events Bandai 1987
New In Box $38,000.00
Comes In Box $12,000.00
Loose $2,200.00

Looks kind of like this guy lost out by a couple thousand...
