At this year's E3 expo, Sony unveiled the PlayStation 3's "official 3D Display", a stereoscopic 3D package that packed in one monitor, one copy of Insomniac Games' Resistance 3, one HDMI cable and one pair of 3D glasses for $US500. Things have changed.
Sony's 3D Display bundle now officially includes a copy of Evolution Studios' disaster racer Motorstorm Apocalypse as part of the package instead of Resistance 3. Why? Well, in a statement to Gamespot, Sony offered no clear reason, but did mention that new Motorstorm's "split-screen racing mode is perfect for the 3D Display's special two-player feature, which allows both players to see individual, unique, full-screen images of gameplay."
We saw that feature in action at E3 2011 and came away impressed.
The good news for Resistance fans is that it appears that retailers — notably Amazon and Gamestop — will still honour the original deal, tossing in a copy of Resistance 3 if you pre-order the 3D Display bundle, which is expected to ship this Australian spring.
