Im not sure who this is aimed at but Super HD at least has been available for some time here in the UK. Havnt got a 3D TV so no idea about that.

Sooooo, 3D support... Would this mean that Netflix on the 3DS is 100% 3D?

I don't think 3D has been much of a hit on the home entertainment market to really justify this. The titles will be too limited for this to really keep customers intrigued over time. And they make it sound fancy by calling it Super HD, but it's 1080p: that's pretty much just HD. I understand years ago there were big categories of 720p, 1080i and 1080p TV's, but 1080p has pretty much become the big player in TV's, so I'm surprised Netflix hasn't been in that resolution already. What has it been at?

i think 3D wont be as enjoyable at home entertainment as long as we keep using glasses... is uncomfortable to be at home and have these ones... ok for HD but dont get excited bout 3D

Just means 3D tech has now embedded into media flawlessly and has become mainstream.. so there goes the pessimists' to this technology.

We are still seeing a lot of films being produced in 3D and some old classics re-mastered and re-released for 3D.

I don't feel uncomfortable at all wearing active 3D glasses over my prescriptions. If there is something to gripe over for it's the price to which some are a bit expensive.
I also have passive 3D glasses for use on my PC, but they are clip-ons so I don't even know it's there and prices on passive glasses are dirt cheap.

Nice, 4KTV's are around the corner and with the release of the PS4 hopefully this year, this will be a great thing to have.
