    Default If 3D is dead.....

    If 3D at home is dead, why is Rogue One sold out at all Best Buys and Targets?

    Because the studio only distributed a fraction of the number of copies to stores as the 2D edition.

    Exactly. Any fans of 3D grabbed up the few copies released immediately.

    If the move was released on HD DVD or LD I guarantee that those copies would be sold out within seconds. Heck, I'd buy it on HD DVD, assuming it was the same price as the BD.

    Why? Why not just buy it on BD if they were the same price?

    Star Wars on HD DVD? I wouldn't be able to resist. I'd probably buy two. One to keep sealed and on display, and the other to watch.

    3D is not dead as it is still on its development stage.

    Better to say that 3D is in hibernation . . . until such time that Autostereoscopic 3D (no glasses) becomes a reality. The wait time will probably coincide with the advent of 8K panels so that 4K resolution can be achieved. Doing Auto 3D with 4K panels results in HD resolution images which won't cut it.

    BTW . . . one of the last 3D equipped 4K UHD TVs is the LeEco uMax85 4K Ultra HDTV, an 85" TV that supports both HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR with an MSRP of $5,499.

    Went to visit perhaps the last dying patient in the native 3D hospital.
