Xbox One Will Not Play 3-D Blu-Ray at Launch

The Xbox One is Microsoft's first game console to have a built-in Blu-ray player. But if you're among the small portion of the population who's interested in playing back 3D Blu-rays on their game consoles, you won't be able to do it on the Xbox One -- at least initially. (Xbox One)

Ah well, They can't get everything right right?

Even though I hate XBOX, They could at least enjoy Blu-Ray movies in 3D, I have nothing against that.

lol.. Omg Why is it called THE "ONE" If it can't do "ONE" thing right!
timotim  +   245d ago
Well...considering the PS4 cant even play BDs out of the box... I'd say they at least have a one up.
OrangePowerz  +   245d ago
Timo you do realize that the X1 can't do anything without the day one update right?
nerdeu  +   245d ago
@Zuperman

Because it's called "XBOX ONE ... MORE CHANGE"
timotim  +   245d ago
That is true Orange.

@orange

But there is a blatantly obvious and necessary reason for the x1 needing the update.. The changes everyone just had to have, and now are complaning about the patch that makes it happen..

Its certainly a more reasonablr question to ask why sony (not a stranger to BD are they?) Didnt include bd support from thr get go.. They werent forced to start over less then 6 months ago

Multi-media console?
Get a PS3. It's the best.

CD/DVD/Blu-Ray & 3D.
Free Media Apps.
It does your MP3, AAC music and DNLA.

It does everything.

lets not pretend Hollywood is even making 3D movies yet alone the game industry making 3D games.
GreenRanger  +   245d ago
The 150 people who wasted their money on 3D TVs will just have to wait for the update that enables 3D Blu-Ray playback.
bleedsoe9mm  +   245d ago
thank sony for that push
Scatpants  +   245d ago
I like 3d movies
chito1016d  +   245d ago
Me too. I bought avatar in 3rd the same day I got my TV and blue ray and it was amazing. Can't go back after watching that
darkride66  +   245d ago
I haven't bought in yet as it hasn't been in my budget, but I fully intend to purchase a 3d projector when my current home theater projector lamp needs to be replaced. I've tried watching Pacific Rim in 2d, but it's just not the same. I'm still sorry I've missed out on some of the 3d games out there. I understand that even though the graphics were notched down a touch, the 3d in Uncharted 3 was absolutely stunning and totally worth while.

I felt that the 3d in uncharted made the resolution too blurry and gave me a headache. The best game for 3D on PS3 in my opinion is Wipeout. On PC my favorite games in 3D are Trine 2 which is coming on PS4 and I will buy again just because the 3D looks so awesome, and Skyrim also looked really good.
Really looking forward to seeing AC4 in 3D. That's probably the first thing I'm going to check out when I hook up my PS4.

@Scatpants

Super Stardust looks AMAZING in 3D. If you haven't tried it, you must.
yanikins111  +   245d ago
Me too....

Really, at this point, hating on 3D because it was "forced" on us is like hating 1080P, or Dolby 5.1

Stop being ignant....

Home 3d movies are nice. Avengers looks fantastic.

3d games are even better. I play almost everything in 3d if possible (except competive fps, as aiming crosshairs can be... off).
darkride66  +   244d ago
@Scatpants. Do you often get headaches from 3D or was it just that one title? The reviewers I read were all raving about Uncharted's 3d. I know headaches from 3d viewing isn't considered normal and the American Optometrist Association issued a warning about 3d that headaches from 3d may be a sign of an undiagnosed vision problem, that it's not normal to get headaches from 3d viewing.

Just a heads up that if you're having this happen regularly you should probably mention it to your doctor.
Baka-akaB  +   245d ago
Arent you guys tired with that crap ? Most new tv sets comes with 3d included by default .

It already there and staying

Yeah 3D TV's have 3D by default these days...i have noticed that...
OrangePowerz  +   245d ago
I have a 3D TV and enjoy watching movies in 3D or play games if they are well done.
n4rc  +   245d ago
Haha.. Nice one

I viewed it as a passing fad from the beginning.. Zero interest in 3d

But granted.. My vision is weaker in one eye slightly so that messes up 3d viewing a bit..

Wouldn't those 150 people already have a Sony Blu-Ray player that can already play 3D Blu-Rays? I mean those players only cost like $60 bucks now.
yanikins111  +   245d ago
By "wasted", you mean "got a better tv than you"?
JediDiah  +   245d ago
3D? Oculus rift!
joseph1111  +   245d ago
I am excited about this but I am worried about the vertigo.. I purchased the Sony 3D video viewer and it gave me major vertigo....
joseph1111  +   245d ago
Omg! You people have no clue what you are missing...3D movies and games are amazing!!! I have a collection of movies and can't wait for the next generation!!
Scatpants  +   245d ago
I agree. Looking forward to Ac4 in 3D on my 60" tv
forcefullpower  +   245d ago
Uncharted in 3d in pretty cool. I do find games much better than movies for 3d
MatrixxGT  +   245d ago
Who cares? 3D is, was, probably always will be a fad. It comes and goes and why I never bought into it. Only thing that changes is the tech and when new tech is applied to 3d imaging it comes out swinging and then slowly goes away to come back in another 10 years.
Secondly, just seems like another blatant attempt to make x1 look worse than it already is. What's next? PS4 won't play 8 track at launch?
christocolus  +   245d ago
who cares?....just give me ryse ,dr3, ki then titanfal and halo5 and i will be good.
badkolo  +   245d ago
3d will make a roaring comeback when it becomes glassless which it already is but its to expensive, when the prices drop on glassless 3d , then it will be huge
ElementX  +   245d ago
Both consoles have features coming out after launch.

I have to agree with dark,just watch pacific rim on my 3d tv it was so cool.
wish more games were in 3d but it's good to know ACBF is 3d.

To the guy with the projector,i had an optima 3D projector and it was cool but t.v's show a way better picture. picture quality vs size is the trade off.
level 360  +   245d ago
For sure they the moment XBox ONE and PS4 are in stores most likely the very first system upgrades/updates they will have is 3D content enable.

I have 2 different 60" 3d tvs and Batman Arkham City in 3D was the shit. Ridge racer 3d edition was cool also.
