LOS ANGELES--Today at Sony's 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo media briefing, the technology giant announced its latest effort in the gamer-fueled 3D push.

A first look at Sony's just-announced 3D TV.

Due out sometime this holiday season, the new $499 SKU includes a 24-inch PlayStation-branded 3D display, a pair of 3D glasses, an HDMI cable, and a copy of Insomniac's September-dated Resistance 3. Glasses will be available a la carte for $69.99.

Of note, Sony's Jack Tretton said the system will allow two players to see two entirely different things on the same screen, effectively changing split-screen multiplayer as gamers know it.

In addition to announcing the new 3D TV, Sony used its media briefing today to show off a new Resistance 3 bundle. Dubbed the "Doomsday" edition, this $150 bundle will include a Sharpshooter peripheral, a PlayStation Move motion controller, navigation controller, PlayStation Eye camera, and a copy of the game.
