No not really.... My CRT Sony Television won't give it any glory.
But I'm glad they are trying new things for games.

Hmm, high-end graphics card, 200Hz HDTV, new games console and still you need shutter glasses?

I'll pay attention when 3DTV doesn't need me to wear a clattering contraption on my head.

3D isn't difficult to do on a computer, it just requires a lot of processing power. The basic premise is that the card renders a left view and a right view into two buffers, and flips between the two buffers.

It does mean that frame rates drop by half or less. It also means the graphics card MUST be synchronised to the frame rate in order to communicate that data to the display at the right time.

Yup, there was a 3D mode for Gloom 2 on the Amiga... a long time ago. Still required shutter glasses. It's those I don't like.
