I'm not a fan of 3d either, but keep in mind the more they push it, the cheaper regular HDTV's get alongside other things, so while I'm not a fan (at this point at least, and many films aren't actually made for 3d), I hope they milk it. I might be looking for a higher end tv in the future because of it.
