Default What happens if you play a 3D disk on a non-3D player?

I see this one has a BD packaged along with the 3D, but what happens if you attempt to play the 3D on a standard player?

Never tried it, but I assume it would just say incompatible disc.

some discs have 2d copies on disc, some do not. those that don't won't let you get to the menu.

stay tuned, i'm helping on something to make this process a bit more understandable.

It will not play, it will bring say that either a 3D Blu-ray player or 3DTV is not connected and to check your HDMI plug, etc. This is for Disney 3D titles and select WB titles which do not share the disc. Despicable Me includes the 2D version, because it won't always include the 2D disc (which includes the limited time mini-movies). Resident Evil: Afterlife as well as all other Sony titles (aside from FIFA 2010) include the 2D version on the disc and your setup may auto-detect which version to start up with.
