3D can only
make an already awesome game simply incredible. Thank GOD the PS3 will soon have this tech after I nice firmware upgrade.

All I need now is to hear GoW III is 3D ready so I can start doing backflips now!
Hitman0769  +   1672d ago
I absolutely agree! I keep seeing 3D HD TV prices drop too, its truly an exciting time to be a gamer once again as our industry is on the forefront of innovation (right behind porn of course).

It's the natural next step in gaming. Anyone who refutes this is in denial.

Man, I Dreaming with that day, I can't wait any longer...

3D Gaming = EPICNESS

Gaming FTW!!!

I really don't see how
Most console games don't even seem to be HD, let alone Full HD, let alone Full HD 3Dg. 3D will half frames rates, so the consoles would ahve to render 60FPS normal, just to get 30 FPS 3D...

honest question...if 3d gaming requires glasses, how do ppl who already wear glasses (ie myself) experience this? i mean i would guess wearing them over your glasses, but i would also think that that would be uncomfortable
FamilyGuy  +   1672d ago
In order:
Over your glasses
Get contacts
Get laser eye surgery
No 3D gaming for you!
SixZeroFour  +   1672d ago
over glasses - hopefully they atleast make a comfortable way to put them on that way

get contacts - i already do have them, but i sure as hell know im not putting them on every time i want to play a game, i only use them when im going out

laser eye surgery - how much does that typically cost?

3d gaming not for me...what i already think with regards to 3d gaming, which is why i dont think 3d tvs and etc is going to become mainstream because it really is abandoning quite a few ppl unless they fix these issues

Hell Yeah!

the gamers community will certainly be divided between 2d and 3d, but i support 3d and i wish it will become an option in video games. i could imagine myself playing me2 with all the gorgeous enviroment in 3d.
iiprotocolii  +   1672d ago
Hehe
Funny thing about that video is that the Bad Company 2 game being played wasn't running on it's highest settings. In fact, as per the visual director, the game was running on it's lowest setting and it looked amazing. What will the game look like on its highest settings? Close to Crysis. Not exactly Crysis, but amazingly close to it.
jdktech2010  +   1672d ago
It may be the next step but it's not one I support. 3D to me seems like a gimmick that a movie or game would need only if it's of bad quality. It reminds me of an amusement park ride but it's not something I want in video games.

Maybe I'll think differently if I try it but it just seems like it would draw me out of the story and game because of things jumping out of the screen at me. To those who enjoy and want it, it's coming whether people like it or not.

But I don't see the point in it quite frankly. If anyone can convince me, I would love to hear why you love it
Letros  +   1672d ago
Well on PC you can enable any game in 3D, some don't quite make the transition well. So really those great games already being made, 3D just pushes it over the top. I agree with what you are saying though, I can't help but feel this Clash of the Titan film is just using 3D to make up for it being a baddie.

I've played L4D in 3D and its fun as hell, it brought me back over and over again.

interesting how mcuh and where would be able buy of sonys 3d tv i have had to save for car and insurance but have been left with £1500 was going upgrade by computer but i think that can wait as i can run most games 1080p at about 50fps
DiLeCtioN  +   1672d ago
pause @ 2:12 - 2:14
he confirms that the game is better than MW2 ;)
chak_  +   1672d ago
guys you realize you need 120fps to get 3D right?

PS3 or xbox absolutly can't produce 120 frames on game such a halo or killzone

I think i'll more be for next generation.
dreamtheater87  +   1672d ago
It's 120hz that is required for 3D, 60hz for each eye so there is no flickering. However you're correct in suggesting that more hardware is needed to make games steroscopic, and I just don't see how consoles can handle it this gen. I have Nvidia 3D Vision on my pc, and games that normally run at a smooth 60fps see a big perfomance hit when you enable 3D. If games like Uncharted 2 or GoW 3 are even remotely straining the PS3, you can guarantee that 3D will bring the console to it's knees.
jjesso1993  +   1672d ago
chak from what a got is you need 120hz tv not have games running at 120fps all it needs to do is half them so 60fps you have 30fps in one eye yes this problem but sure as we progress devs will have more games running at 60fps. Killzone engine took so long to make now they have engine so they have good two three years of making next one with how the first one looked iam positve they can make that 60fp.

Great video guys. 3D is so underrated.
thrust  +   1672d ago
3dtv will not be that big for consoles for a long time, HDTV is only just taking off (still lots of people with out them) so give 3dtv like 4 to 5 years before it is main steam i.e like on consoles.
taz8080  +   1672d ago
I think the time line may be a year or so shorter just because the technology for 3D has really been pushed this year. Fuji has a 3D camera for under $500 and it is very good. 3D is becoming less of a gimmick and more main stream now, because of movies like Avatar. I would think that maybe in 2 to 3 years we will see much more 3D media and definitely in the next generation of consoles.

@MrAnonymous -- You can get Auto-stereoscopic which do not require glasses and have the added bonus of allowing everyone in the room to experience 3D at the same time.
