Peerless peerAir Wireless HDMI Streaming System Impressions

Sometimes it's amazing to just sit back and realize how far we've come with televisions, consoles, and display technology. It wasn't long ago we had to buy something called an RF Adapter just to hook up the latest console to our television. Now?

The first Sony TV with the much lauded SimulView technology will be available for purchase on November 13th worldwide.  The 24 inch 3D TV utilizes a set of 3D glasses for each player to create two distinct 2D images - thereby eliminating an actual split-screen setup and allowing both players to look at the full screen.  We had some eyes on time with the TV back at E3 and came away pretty impressed - but one thing has changed since then - the bundled game.
