You think Walmart is to blame, for the tech, failing.
Without the support of what is, likely, the largest in-store retailer of televisions, the technology isn't going to go anywhere. The inflated price from producers, as killer_roach mentioned, was likely a large reason for the lack of their support behind the technology.
I don't feel like the usage was the issue. Plenty of people are still watching 3d movies at the cinema (Dr. Strange was freaking amazing in 3d). If it wasn't selling there, they'd stop wasting money on it.
A fourth major problem, one that I forgot, was early exclusivity issues. Avatar 3d was, if I remember correctly, a Panasonic exclusive title for awhile. How to Train Your Dragon 3d was a Best Buy exclusive title. If you're trying to sell people on a major technology, it is, imo, a stupid idea to limit the tech's 'killer apps'.
