Is movie industry to blame for 3D TV woes?

An official from consumer electronics company Panasonic is blaming lackluster sales of 3D TVs on the movie industry oversaturating its own market with crappy 3D theatrical releases. By extension, that means the 3D TV market will be flooded with crappy content, since TV studios aren't making a lot of their own 3D content for TV.

The implication is that movie studios have been greedy and thinking about quantity over quality. However, the same might be said about some 3D TV manufacturers charging well over $100 for a pair of 3D glasses.

The quantity-over-quality accusation also might be a thin one, given that TV makers seem to want the movie industry to come up with another "Avatar" to revive excitement. They don't want quality; they just want a blockbuster.
