Wii U Gamepad 3D Output Confirmed

At Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed III Launch Party here in Montreal, a Product Manager shared with IMGMR.com that the Gamepad is actually 3D enabled and will be usable in games like Assassin's Creed III. Now, comes the confirmation.

The story is too old to be commented.

I tought it was a hoax.

nassour1677d ago

seems like its not, and the pics prove it

lashes2ashes1677d ago

How do the pics prove it. When the 3ds came out we all learned you can't see the 3d effect in photos or vids.

inveni01676d ago (Edited 1676d ago )

It's not interlaced 3D. It's anaglyph, side-by-side, or top/bottom. There is no parallax technique as we see with the 3DS.

Tired1676d ago (Edited 1676d ago )

Gamepad 3D? I don't think so.

The fact the settings state anaglyph, SBS and TNB are the givaway. These are settings for various 3D tv's. All this does is confirm that the WiiU plays AC3 in 3D with compatible tv's. Or all screens via anaglyph.

Under the 3D settings is the option to play on the gamepad itself. There are no pictures of the gamepad running anaglyph pictures. Why not?

I call BS!

*edit* Even if anaglyph stereoscopy can be viewed on the gamepad that doesn't make it 3D enabled. Because in that case EVERY SINGLE COLOUR tv/phone/lap-top/computer EVER is 3d enabled.

quote from article "The green and magenta 3D glasses needed to experience this visual sensation come from Inficolor.". Its anaglyph 3D any TV can do this form of 3D you can even get this 3D method from books/magazines.

So did I at first, but Jesus Christ! Who would've known?! Thanks imgmr, this definitely gives me another excuse to pick up the Wii U!

kneon1677d ago

It said it can do 3D with the use of the colored glasses. That doesn't require any special screen, any screen can do it so long as it's in color.

I play this gam on my LG 50inch 3Dtv on my ps3 big whoop

This 3D craze is really doing it for me.

gemugurl1677d ago

That makes AC3 worth trying on the WiiU since the gameplay will be a bit different

kupomogli1677d ago

It won't make the gameplay different one bit. Disappointing game also.

grailly1676d ago

AC3 is also 3D on other platforms

profgerbik1676d ago

Everything is practically 3D on PC.

hum_bug1677d ago

Whhoooaaaa trippy 3D-ness

Thepcz1677d ago (Edited 1677d ago )

if true, this feature will add value to wiiu

no need to splash out on £1000 tv sets for 3d gaming. heck, maybe you could even watch 3d movies and other 3d content on the screen via netflix etc.

great move from nintendo. genius really

ChickeyCantor1677d ago

" The green and magenta 3D glasses needed to experience this visual sensation come from Inficolor. "

Any screen can do this? They aren't clear on how the 3D is rendered.

USEYOURFIST1677d ago

yea your right its not "proper" 3d like a 3ds sceen, just the one any colour tv can do..was excited for a minute untill i saw that lol

metroid321677d ago

Well its when all games support 3d the gampad needs to support it also for off TV Play ? Have a nice day.
