Sony to test out their 3D tech by recording World Cup games

Sony is using just about the most-viewed event on Earth (the FIFA World Cup) to test out and promote their 3-D technology. Sony is going to record up to 25 of the soccer games in 3-D. Unfortunately, the end result is only going to be visible at special FIFA events in June and July during the World Cup next year (2010), and then for highlights when Sony starts selling their 3-D TVs and video cameras.

As much as the gadget and soccer geeks in me is drooling at the thought of 3-D footie, the realistic part of me is saying that this is really 1st gen tech, and home 3-D very well may be pricey and not live up to the probably hype.
