3D technology has finally made the jump to the Xbox 360, and will go live in the next firmware update coming in a few days time. It will bring stereoscopic 3D support to a few big titles, the first of them being Halo Anniversary.
I have been looking for a reason to buy a 3D TV! Can anyone recommend a good one?

I just got a Panasonic TC-P55ST30 and the picture is awesome. Colors are rich and blacks inky. Great set. IMO (and many others) Panasonic is the best in Plasmas. I would highly recommend a Plasma over a LCD TV any day of the week. You cant go wrong with this set and any of the higher GT and VT models.
Do not buy a vizio, probably a PS3 fanboy, that doesn't do any research before buying. Panasonic leads in LCD, Samsung in Plasma and LED.
why so mean? http://farm2.static.flickr....
panasonic does not make lcd's. so much for telling yourself that you are smarter than a ps3 fanboy.
Why would you buy a 3DTV for a 360? That's silly.
Nothing wrong with vizio tv's stop being brand slave!
Good now that all the platform giants are behind 3D the future looks even brighter for 3D entertainment!
Except that 3D is a gimmick. As soon as everyone stops pushing for 3D integration then we can get into bigger better things like OLED and higher resolution. Everyone is so infatuated with 3D for some reason.
I don't think 3D is a gimmick, but each to their own I suppose and I can see why people have been sceptical as 3D has been thrown in to the entertainment sector many times in the past and not always in a good way!
Ultra HD (UHD) is already here mind, in next few years and next Gen or possibly the one after I would expect we will be seeing it as given that 3D is selling well comparatively to HD I would expect a slow release of ultra high HD (UHD) TV's by then. Everywhere tends to be three + years behind Far East (Japan / China) tech wise imo!

@toaster If you think about it a little 3D is paving the way for those in both pushing the threshold of price and pushing for a need for higher resolution. So I wouldn't really look at it as gimmicky.
This is a load of crap. Xbox 360 already supports 3D gaming. Microsoft said this a long time ago but they do not plaster it all over their advertisements. My Xbox 360 has this option already so it isint coming in an update it is already in the Xbox 360.
Douch they put a 3d logo on anything that supported it just like microsoft and ps3 put online multiplayer as a feature on their games. Luckily for them they were not as strong at denying their support for 3D as they were with blueray.
360 had 3D a long time ago this is just an option / switch in the dashboard as far as I'm aware.
Not sure if this is anything other than an option as I doubt that this sidesteps the HDMI requirements for 3D thus the 360 will still be doing 3D as it was in an 'inferior' fashion to that of the PS3* due to HDMI specifications and SPU's!
*That's not to say I think PS3 can do 3D as it should as Rez still needs to be dropped there even. I would expect (early) next gen we will see 3D games on par with what is seen in current Gen 'non-3D' first party games.
I swear some people are completely oblivious to the future of technology lol!
Where are the haters saying that the 360 couldn't do 3D?
The 360's tiny eDRAM will make 3D rendering on it a pain for all but the simplest games... You know what, I take that back. Most 3D games forego anti-aliasing anyhow, so maybe it'll be okay. SOCOM 4 uses MLAA with 3D and full 720p, which is a neat trick, but its not necessary for functional 3D. KZ3 and CoD:BO, to my recollection were sub-720p with no AA (in 3D mode), which is probably how most 3D games on the 360 would end up. Honestly, the platform which would probably benefit most from 3D support is the Wii U. I wonder if the Wii U tablet controller has a fast enough refresh rate to support such a thing, and a place for some sorta sync transmitter add-on?
