100 Stereoscopic 3D PS3 Games Now Available

The release of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Super Hang-On, a Sega classic game now available on PSN, brings the total number of stereoscopic 3D games available for the PS3 to 100, a target that has taken almost 2 years to acheive.

There are 3D games in almost every genre, with the majority 3D console exclusive to the PS3. So how does the Xbox 360 compare? (PS3, Xbox 360)

It's a big gimmick that damages your eyes and cost the ps3 loads of ram that could have been used for decent firmware updates.

And yes, I do down a ps3 and that's all I have.
3dtested  +   876d ago
It doesn't work for some people (around 15% of people repotedly do not have good stereoscopic vision or suffer extreme nausea).

Passive 3D is easier to watch than active but passive on 3DTV's and single projector setups is half resolution.

RAM does not come into the firmware update equation. Sure, additional RAM is required for the larger framebuffer but this is easily workable as evident in the library of games.

I have passive on my tv and my friend has active on his. It's identical.

@MySwordIsHeavenly

It's not identical, passive 3D only has half the vertical or horizontal resolution, so unless you're running a 4k TV you can't get full 1080p in 3D on a passive 3D TV.

For most games the difference is small as most don't run at 1080p but for bluray movies it's a significant difference.

I thought Passive 3D had the whole resolution?
DA_SHREDDER  +   876d ago
Most of the 3D that's out is crap. The demos showing 3D in the stores is awesome, I bought the same tv they were using on display. An LG 56000 LED 120 hrz. I watch 3D shows on directv and its pretty good, but the only game so far that does 3D decent, is future soldier, and even then its only when you're cloaked and it's only in single player mode.

I at least feel like its not my tv's fault, it's just the limited hardware doesn't allow it. Hopefully everything is fixed next gen.

What ? no!!

Wipeout HD does 3d perfectly and that was one of the early titles
Larry L  +   876d ago
3-D is great for racing games. The two compliment each other perfectly. Gran Turismo 5 and Motorstorm are incredible in 3-D. And I'm only playing them on the small PlayStation 3-D display. It could only be better the bigger the TV.

I play Killzone in 3-D too. And I think 3-D works well with FPSs. But in terms of shooters I think 3-D works better with "rail shooters" like House of the Dead.

As of right now, those are the only game types I like with 3-D. A genre I'd like to see really good 3-D implemented in, just to see if it works or not is the isometric ARPG games like diablo. It may be pretty cool if done right with all the character/creature models and spell effects popping up off the map surface.

Stop spreading craps and lies fanboytrollz, uncharted 3, killzone 3 and many others have great 3D...

da shredder wrote (+ many other stupid things) : "Even ps3 exclusives like GOW, KZ3, and Motorstorm have slower frame rates. I didn't realize how bad things got this gen, till I seen it with my own eyes. #2"

lol...please, don't pretend you have a ps3
Finalfantasykid  +   876d ago
Super Stardust HD, and Ico/SOTC say otherwise.

Where as PC has over 400...
BrianG  +   876d ago
Because of course it's a competition..... /s
Pandamobile  +   875d ago
Pretty sure it's around 600+ now. Just about every game released in the last 6 years has the option to play in 3D, even if the game itself doesn't support it.

@DA_SHREDDER: There are many good 3D games on the PS3. Take a look at the list on the article site and try some of the higher rating games.

@Series_IIa: PC has over 500, but that's not the point of the news article. Some people prefer console gaming, not everyone has a 3D setup for their PC and not every 3D game is available on PC. There has to be a balance. If you're a PC guy then that's fine, no need to put down everyone else.

and what percentage of ps3 owners have 3d displays or tvs?
3dtested  +   876d ago
This study summarises the current trend:
https://www.npd.com/wps/por...

Currently there are around 35 million people with 3DTV's worldwide but of course that's only a small percentage of total TV's. In the US, on current numbers, the penetration is around 4-5%. Amongst PS3 owners this would be expected to be higher.

It's not a huge user base but the majority of those that have tried 3D gaming are positive about the experience. 3D gaming gets a rap mostly from people that haven't tried it and simply call it a gimmick.
Software_Lover  +   876d ago
I have it, its a gimmick. Black ops is crap in 3d. Halo Anniversary is better than black ops, but is still crap. The only games that deserve to be made into 3d games are the old school shooters.

Ikaruga
R-type
etc.

The best 3d game that I have played is a take on that old school shooting style called 3D INFINITY.
coojo  +   876d ago
3d is still a thing i thought it died.
Primal Rex  +   876d ago
And still no one cares !!!
seedaripper1973  +   876d ago
Er, i have a 55" 3d tv, and hopefully more games will support it (UC3 is ace)
ApolloAdams  +   876d ago
3D console gaming is a joke in my opinion as of now since 3D penetration is horrible right now.

3D for PC is a cheaper proposition and more games and cheaper overall.

Good start Sony I suppose but lower your TV set costs then I can take you seriously.
Pandamobile  +   875d ago
Yeah, I bought a 3D monitor around Christmas time and tried it out with a few of my PS3 games that support 3D and the experience was not very good at all.

Killzone 3's 3D was just awful in my opinion because it made the rest of the game look so crappy.

Wipeout was decent though.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   876d ago
I absolutely LOVE gaming in 3D. I don't care if you people don't like it. I'd love for it to stick around. You don't HAVE to use it, you know...

Sonic: Generations is the best 3D game out there, but many others use it very well. Many 3D movies look fantastic, also...especially the animated ones.
tweet75  +   876d ago
until 3d displays can be used without glasses and become standard lost cost options for tvs I dont care about 3d on consoles

BrianG  +   876d ago
You should be happy about this milestone then.

If it wasn't for us early adopters, 3D wouldn't ever become a "standard low cost option".
tweet75  +   876d ago
true i would have never guessed 3d would be even possible this generation when it began
kneon  +   876d ago
No matter what they do glasses free 3D will always be inferior to 3D using glasses. It will just be impossible to entirely eliminate crosstalk, unless you enjoy sitting perfectly still the entire time and never turning your head.

It will certainly get better but glasses free 3D TV has inherent limitations that cannot be overcome with any technology, that is unless we develop mind reading computers that know how you intend to move before you do :)
N311V  +   875d ago
UC3, AC3 and B:AC are all excellent in 3D.
YoungKingDoran  +   875d ago
Although I was always on the "3D is unnecessary" bandwagon (even whilst owning a 3D tv) I have to admit, after playing or watching something in 3D, 2D is so underwhelming.
Don't believe me? Watch the Avengers 3D then 2D and tell me which was more engrossing
baodeus  +   875d ago
Well I did and i didn't like 3d maybe u have different experience than i did. Although i did find something interesting about avenger 3d vs 2d showing was that there were alot of showing still available on 3d side when there were practically non available on 2d side when i was looking for tickets. Not sure if that applies to every area though but based on at least 6 places that i pick randomly, it is pretty consistent. Most consistent finding was that 2d imax version (enhance visual & sounds) seem to b the most popular version.
glennco  +   875d ago
not a fan, i choose to play in 2D even though i have 3D games and TV. and is far from perfect anyway unless you have 3D video glasses with zero crosstalk. it may add depth but you sacrifice moving image quality, especially when the action speeds up.

the problem is that one eye receives the image and then by the time the other eye receives the corresponding image it has moved ever so slightly... and no TVs can manage this despite anyone saying otherwise as they alternate images. glasses free has its own problems with limited viewing angles so that aint even close to replacing active shutters. video glasses are the only option for perfect 3D
black911  +   875d ago
Could someone help me. I have the Samsung PN51E8000 how is my 3D and the TV overall?
seedaripper1973  +   875d ago
It fairs quite well..here
http://reviews.cnet.com/fla...

P.s surely you can make your own mind up with regards to the quality?
IHateYouFanboys  +   875d ago
or in other words, 100 PS3 games that wouldve looked/performed better if they didnt have 3D.
seedaripper1973  +   875d ago
Don't be daft, you do have the option to turn it off you know?
