    The only way you'll be able to get the DVD of the film Avatar 3D is if you buy certain models of Panasonic's 3D televisions. Panasonic has a 1 year contract with the film maker. I suppose the only other way you'll be able to get a 3D copy is, perhaps, on eBay and probably at a premium price! :mad:

    One hour later added note: On eBay, factory sealed 3D DVD's of Avatar are being auctioned off anywhere from $88.00 to $435.00. Where the sellers are getting them from is anyone's guess.

    There will inevitably be some promotional tie-ins between Hollywood and the TV manufacturers. However, this can't last for long. If this format is going to become a regular "thing", there will have to be some industry standards which everyone will adopt. We can't have several systems competing like this; one of them will eventually win out.
