Best Buy offers PlayStation 3D Display, throws in cheap PS3 to boot

I would suppose that there is a very good reason for calling Best Buy what it is, considering how the retailer has put up the PlayStation 3D Display on sale from last week onwards, and will keep that offer company with a spanking new promotion.
