I was curious too.

Clearly I was not there. From what I heard, the ice-level views looked the best. But overhead shots were nothing to jump up and down over.

If this works, I could see this being pretty cool in the future for hockey

I was there, and as said above, it was all about the behind the net cameras, ice level views, and the shots from the holes in the glass to the sides of the nets. The "standard" view wasn't that different from the 2D camera it seemed.

At times it was hard to follow the puck because of the polarization, but all in all, it was a pretty cool experience. I'm sure once the tweaks are made, it'll make for a great way to watch hockey.

Reviews sound promising.... Here's a write up for The Record:

http://www.northjersey.com/sports/sp...dimension.html

The athletes they interviewed said the fight was awesome in 3D and one commented on seeing the checking up close against the glass.

I loved it, everytime some1 stood up in the crowd in the Garden it looked like someone was standing right in front of u. I was about to yell get out the way. I met up with Gabevh3 from these boards and had a great time! The crowd went nuts when they brought out Messier.

So costs aside and speaking strictly from a viewer enjoyment perspective, do you think fans in the future will strive to see/enjoy 3D broadcasts of the games?

I imagine they will reduce the costs of the broadcasts and figure out the best camera angles to maximize the effects of the technology.

If Cablevision/Dolan is involved this early in the 3D game it can't be that cost/prohibitive. I don't see people running out to buy the 3D displays in numbers that will make a difference yet anyway. Alot of people have dropped some nice coin on displays within the past few years. Asking them to do so for 3D in this current economic climate may be asking a bit much.

Apparently these new sets that were just released are selling like hotcakes... Granted I think it's unwise to jump in this early in the game but I'd imagine it won't be very long until the sets are more cost effective and the technology has become more widespread and adopted....

Just like plasmas, LCD, and LED, once they are produced for a longer period of time and the manufacturers make up their costs in R&D and be able to produce them cheaper, we will see the prices drop. In 3-4 years it will be time for me to get a new TV and i will def consider a 3d if they're any good. I have a 46" Lg right now and i absolutely love it.

I hope they do another one of these games soon, I would like to attend one. The only thing that would deter me from buying one of these 3D TV's is that I would not wanna have to wear the glasses all the time. Hopefully they can figure away around that.
