Although you won't have to wear glasses to play Nintendo's 3DS, you'll still have to sport the eyewear if you want to watch 3D TV. We knew this would be likely, but in Samsung's case, there's a twist -- you can only use Samsung 3D glasses to watch Samsung 3D TVs.

The stylish 3D glasses are compatible with all Samsung 3D TVs and are priced from $150 - $200. However, if you buy a Samsung 3D TV, you'll get two free pairs of glasses (and a 3D Blu-ray movie).

According to PC World, the glasses seem pretty easy to use and are more high-tech than the one-size-fits-all models you get at the theater. To power up the glasses, all you have to do is touch a button. Then to turn them off, simply fold the arms in. The battery-operated models can be used for around 400 hours, but viewers will have to charge up the rechargeable ones completely before watching an average movie.
The move to make brand-specific 3D glasses is not unique to Samsung -- other TV companies like Sharp, LG and Sony are expected to do the same thing. But with such hefty price tags, you'll either have to buy extras for your friends when they come over, or hope your friends' TV is the same brand as yours. Knowing this, are you still psyched about 3D TV? %Poll-43872%
