Like we said before…start saving your pennies.
Sony's incredible new 84-inch XBR-84X90 high-definition TV has super high definition, registering at 3840 x 2160 resolution, which is four full times the pixels of what we call "full HD" now (1080p). It also boasts 3D, a virtual 5.1 surround sound field and online connectivity via the Sony Entertainment Network.
So what's the retail price? Did you guess? Are you about right? According to a new CVG report , this wicked piece of technology can be pre-ordered now; it's scheduled to arrive in the US in November. It seems obvious to many that Sony will utilize the new PlayStation to help bring this ridiculous tech into the homes of more people but to start, the price tag is a tad…prohibitive: $25,000.
Oh come on, it's not that bad. I remember some time ago, wandering into a TV store and seeing one of the first high-definition TVs for $30,000. I remember thinking, "yeah, can't get much better than that." And you know, we all have to stop saying things like that.
