3D Blu-Ray Now Available for Home Viewing

Just got an e-mail from Sony (a mass e-mail, not just to me) about how Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs has become the first release to feature high definition 3D, not the old-fashioned 3D where all the colors pretty much become grey. I believe the only way it works is to get a new 3D-capable Blu-Ray player. Oh, wait, its Amazon page says, "This Blu-ray disc will display only in 2D without special hardware. To watch this movie in Blu-ray 3D, you will need a 3D-capable television that comes with active-shutter glasses and a 3D-capable Blu-ray player. See 3D 101 for full details."

Other animated Sony titles coming soon to 3D Blu-Ray include Monster House and Open Season, and not animated but I suppose most animation fans will welcome the late July release of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
