Looking to drive sales of their new “PlayStation 3D Display” in Europe, Sony is bundling the Platinum edition of Gran Turismo 5 (and Killzone 3) with the monitor in the UK and Europe.
Their strategy appears to be working, with initial shipments of the bundle having reportedly sold out at most UK retailers. The display first became available in North America last fall, where it was (and continues to be) bundled with a copy of Motorstorm: Apocalypse.
The most notable feature of the 24” monitor is its patented “SimulView” technology, which GT5 became fully compatible with in the Spec II update.
As you can see in the video above, SimulView allows two players (wearing 3D glasses) to look at the screen at the same time, with each person seeing a unique and completely different image. This is, obviously, quite a revolutionary feature for anyone who’s tried to race with a friend while squinting at a split-screen.
