Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao is now officially the brand ambassador of Sony Philippines’ much-awaited, state-of-the-art lineup of 3D home entertainment products. He is shown in the photo receiving a certificate from Sony Philippines president and managing director Takao Kuroda for being the country’s first owner of the Sony Bravia 3D TV and 3D Blu-Ray Player.
Prices aren’t known yet, but the advent of Sony 3D TV is expected to bring the excitement of playing 3D games and 3D movies right in the comfort of our own homes. The 3D TVs come complete with 3D glasses, and people from Sony are also saying that 3D will also be incorporated in their PlayStation 3 consoles and VAIO PCs soon after. It’s definitely worth watching out for! After the popularity of LCD TVs, I guess 3D is the next wave in TV technology (and everything else, besides!)
Pacquiao shows here how to watch 3D TV (with 3D glasses of course). In a press conference at New World Hotel in Makati City, he said he accepted the offer to endorse Sony because he has always patronized Sony products, from Betamax to the Walkman. The boxing champ will go back to the ring again onNov. 13 to fight a still-unnamed opponent. Will it be Floyd Mayweather or Antonio Margarito? Whoever he ends up with, I hope that the Sony people will come up with something to let us watch the fight in 3D to fully enjoy the experience. It was nice finally seeing the legendary Manny Pacquiao in person …. w00t! 😀
