Cnet - CES: Hands-on with PS3 in 3D

Cnet: After spending 20 minutes playing Wipeout in 3D at Sony's CES 2010 booth, I'm officially a believer in gaming in the third dimension. It was only after I was made aware of the fine print did I become grounded in reality. But before we get into the gory details about what you'll need to get this working, let's discuss how it played.

Sony had a few games playable in 3D including Super Stardust HD, Avatar, and Wipeout. The experience playing Wipeout in 3D is truly immersive, with layered graphics giving you a surreal sensation of being in the cockpit of a futuristic racing ship. The HUD (heads-up-display) felt almost touchable, and its subtle shake was very realistic. (PS3, Tech)

I found this part very interesting:
'The HUD (heads-up-display) felt almost touchable'

Now bear with me here. You know in Dead Space, the HUD is like active and dynamic.

Now take a FPS like Killzone and add the 3D effect to where the HUD is similar as explained in the article about Wipeout in 3D. Now add the Playstation Eye and developers could make it appear as if the 'almost touchable' HUD can in fact be touched to manipulate settings for the character.

That would be absolutely amazing.

i'm actually hoping they can pull that off.
i expect that GDC will have some interesting developments when it comes to pseye,the wand and 3D.

i can do one better though but sort of off topic....sort of.see this:

OLD sony concept video where one company (i won't mention who) is patterning their new peripheral after.anyway,pseye can do hand gestures too.as seen in eyepet,eye of judgment and PSN eyetoy games.i believe sony will add navigation of either the XMB or PSN but the cool effect will be 3D added.

not only that,but as you see here:
and here:

sony will have voice recognition and avatars that pop out the screen and talk to you.either NPC or the person you are playing against.or how about video conferencing but the avatars are in your face and your friends look like some demon monster or anime character.or something silly like this(crazy hair):

sony is following a set pattern.the concept video has the avatars,pets you interact with and touch with your hands out right now.3D will just add to what you see as it pops out at you.

but we'll see soon enough.can't wait for a FATAL FRAME game as the ghosts pop out the screen at you.or even the new RE6.....interesting though if they can.....

Thats a neat idea dude! I think someone should send that idea to SCEA. And trust me, when its a good idea, devs listen to it. For example, the dagger tail idea in prince of persia: sands of time was sent in from a fan that the devs just couldn't resist but add.

i REALLY want to check this out in person.

and i hope the industry is serious about supporting it for games/movies
or else there will be some seriously pissed off people who spent thousands of dollars on the gear o_O

Sinncross, good call.
I'm very excited about the possibilities 3D bring. I realize the cool thing to do nowadays is hate on 3D, but when done properly, it's quite amazing, and it lends itself perfectly to gaming. This will be an amazing decade for gamers. 3D is just the beginning.

Holy Heck, the Eye is so awesome. I really hope the NATAL announcement sparked Sony to really use the technology, cause this is some of the coolest stuff. And I think between the 3D and the Motion Controller(PSEye of course will have controllerless gaming too) will really bring gaming into the future. It's the beginning of the holodeck right here with Playstation.
Microsoft Xbox 360  +   2029d ago
This 3d tech and the use of the PS Eye for headtracking can make a pretty damn amazing 3d experience.
Saaking  +   2029d ago
3D + PSeye + Wands = TRUE innovation. It certainly beats just a camera. I really hope Sony takes advantage of it and shows why the PS3 is the only TRULY next generation console .

In other news Nvidia has 3d enable on many games for Windows.

This is not going to sell anytime soon
To expensive. People will not adapt to 3DHD just to play games in 3D. HD-OLED TV's are now coming to market and are expensive. 3D TV's are years away form popularity. No developer (Except 1st party) is going to waste they time with a few exclusives for the 100 people who buy in the first 2 years if Sony tries to push this now. They need to get the TV's out there first. They are trying to use gamers to sell everything they make.

I hope it's only an option and not mandatory. I dont wanna wear those crappy glasses to play.
Nineball2112  +   2029d ago
That sounds interesting Sinncross. That's something that seems reasonable and I'd hope that developers would be thinking along those lines.

Actually, that sounds like something made for Natal too, so I'm not sure why Microsoft seems to be downplaying 3D tech at this point.

when these tv's are like a 1000 they will be selling faster than bottled water
people just upgraded but many will upgrade again because tech is getting better and i for sure dont want to miss anything
Noob  +   2029d ago
What's crazy is the fact that these games that Sony is demonstrating 3D with were never built from the ground up for the tech but still works so well. I could only imagine how much better it would be if a game was developed from the ground up with 3D in mind. I think PS4 is guaranteed to have 3D support for all games.

yeah, i agree, a game made from the ground up for 3D might be even better than just adding it in at the end
thesummerofgeorge  +   2029d ago
Agreed. When games start getting built from the ground up in 3D
It will be a lot better. And then once the top developers get their hands on the tech and implement it in new and artistic ways, the possibilities are endless.
Dev8 ing  +   2029d ago
Woah. Look at all the hate for 3D. None of the commenters at Cnet had anything possitive to say about 3D. Is it because their box isn't capable of doing it so they drag down the whole industry?
TruEve  +   2029d ago
it seems the high majority of the hate and skepticism for 3D gaming are those who haven't actually had hands-on with the stuff these tech editors are previewing! It sounds mostly good and I'd take their word for it (and my own) over some haters'/ skeptics'. I've seen Avatar in 3D, and if that's what we're in for then sign me up :).

The best news from that article for me is that Sony 3D sets will come with 2 shutter glasses. I plan on getting a new HDTV, and Sony Bravias are looking good right now.
CrippleH  +   2029d ago
Face it or not gaming will evolve to use 3D. If we are going to make the Matrix a reality 3D technology will have to evolve and 3D is just the start.

Next is smells and sense of touch. But those will also be gimmicks am I right?
kneon  +   2029d ago
What of this claim that it requires specific Sony TV models to work
That's the first time I've heard any such claim, it sounds fishy to me as most explanations of the tech have said it should work with any 120hz or better HDTV. If it's true that only new Sony TVs made specifically for 3D will work with the PS3 then Sony are shooting themselves in both feet with a double barreled shotgun.
hoops  +   2029d ago
If that is the case then it wont be successful then if it works only with Sony TV on the PS3...
Which would mean Sony is doing this in the hardware to prevent this. Why?
Because Nvidia has been doing 3D game since last year and it works on ANY MONITOR over 120HZ.
Hopefully this is false.

The Simple Truth  +   2029d ago
I don't know about that
I think a lot of people have just brought HDTV's, now they are being asked to buy yet another set???

I can see the mass market being pissed at this.
The hardcore will buy, but the rest will wait.
