Hello,
I have a Sony Bravia 46w4100 which is a 120hz tv. Will it be compatible with new 3d stuff (blurays, games, etc) coming this year? :sarcastic:

If it does it should say something about being 3D ready.

^ Exactly. Just because a TV is 120Hz internally (upsampling or interpolating to reduce motion blur) doesn't mean that the 120Hz is available as an input. You probably do not want to be watching 3D on a 60Hz TV, since each eye will get just 30 frames per second using the LCD shutter glasses and you'll get a headache after a while.

No. It is not a 3D HDTV.

120Hz HDTV operates differently compared to 120Hz PC monitors. 120Hz (and 240Hz) simply refers to internal video processing to "improve" video quality.

well humans cant tell the difference anything over 30fps.... u may feel the difference in games because of its response, but humans cant really tell the difference anything avg. of 30.

You might not be able to distinguish between frames at 30fps, but you sure could detect the flicker. Esp. if that flicker is 180 degrees out of phase for each eye as it would be using 3D shutter glasses. I have an old ATI video card with the 3D shutter glasses, and can personally vouch for the fact that it causes headaches after a bit of use. Probably why it was never a big seller at the time..
