I tought it was a hoax.

nassour1650d ago

seems like its not, and the pics prove it

lashes2ashes1650d 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.

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.

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!

kneon1650d 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.

This 3D craze is really doing it for me.

gemugurl1650d ago

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

kupomogli1650d ago

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

grailly1650d ago

AC3 is also 3D on other platforms

profgerbik1649d ago

Everything is practically 3D on PC.

hum_bug1650d ago

Whhoooaaaa trippy 3D-ness

Thepcz1650d ago (Edited 1650d 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

" 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.


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

metroid321650d ago

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