Japanese Not Excited About Being Told To Buy 3D TVs

A survey of 8957 Japanese consumers found they're not thrilled about the entertainment industry demanding they upgrade TVs again, with nearly 70 per cent saying they have "no plans" to buy a 3D TV for their homes.

"Television makers' expectations for 3D are high but looking at the degree of interest among consumers, there is a big gap with the enthusiasm of manufacturers," said Tsuyoshi Kamada, from survey-taker Kakaku.com. The main reasons given for the negativity were the expense, the silly glasses, the expense of the silly glasses and the clear current lack of 3D content. [Reuters via VG247]
