Sony Begin Promoting 3D Gaming – Initial 3D Titles Revealed

Throughout 2010 so far, Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) have become the standard bearer for 3D technology in home videogame systems. While it would be possible for any games system currently on the market to produce stereoscopic 3D games – as both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have done in the forms of Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao and James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game – it’s SCE that have taken-up the mantle and decided to become the standard bearer for the technology. Today, that agenda has become clearer than ever, as SCE has begun promoting the technology as part of a new consumer campaign for both PlayStation 3 and the recently launched BRAVIA 3D TV series. (Industry, Motorstorm:Pacific Rift, PAIN, PS3, Sony, Sony Computer Entertainment, Super Stardust HD, Tech, Wipeout HD)

Have a feeling I'll be getting 3D in the future :)

i agree
hopefully black friday brings some of these TV's within my price range id love a 3d Bravia.

Hmmmm.... Sony is adding features. Makes me wonder how many of those that griped when they took the other OS feature away will be here praising Sony for now adding a feature that was not included in the original purchase price...

Good point.....
Two or three years from now, when 3D is the norm, gamers will look back fondly at 2010 and remember how it all started. (Of course, that is assuming 2012 gets cancelled lol)

i watched some 3D content on a 1080P Pana plasma yesterday. DAYUM!!
but, i suppose this will only get better. The glasses are still a bit weird and your eyes really need to adjust.. it's kinda disorientating and you can see the flickering of the shutters.

but fuck yeah.. it looks awesome and it will add immersion

3D Gaming FTW!!!

I just want to hear a confirmation from Sony that 120hz TVs will be compatible with the PS3's 3D applications.
NastyLeftHook  +   1966d ago
me too
cant wait to see what the gaming/media giant will do with 3d.
kevco33  +   1966d ago
Those are some pretty decent titles to be pushing it with. Some big names there that'll attract not just dedicated gamers, but the more mainstream gamers that don't necessarily check out gaming mags or websites too.
nycredude  +   1966d ago
Hell yeah I have all of those titles!! Motorstorm Pacific Rift in 3D!!! Yummy! And Gt5!!!

sony really has alot of work ahead of it, and im positive they have what it takes to get it done, there sony.

When it comes to Technology Sony never disappoints, they are always among the top brands <Fact
E46M3  +   1966d ago
Playstation 3 had an obselete GPU when it launched.

Xbox 360 was atleast upto date in the GPU department when it launched.

Regardless both are really outdated now.
kevco33  +   1966d ago
Maybe in comparison to PCs, but in terms of the average gaming audience both the Xbox 360 and PS3 have still got a lot of juice left in them.

I find it difficult to swallow when people say Nintendo's recycled GameCube has reached it's limit - Mario Galaxy 2 looks better than aything that system has put out before, and 2011 will no doubt improve upon that as well.
YourFlyness  +   1966d ago
yea Technology is always surpassed as soon as it released.

Anyways I said never disappoints, obselete or not!

@kevco Agree, look at any console when they first are released the software isnt all that great, buit later in its years the graphics blow the early years out the water (oh you sunk my battleship, <lol random)

x360 can't do steroscopic 3d, what does this tell you, yes x360 is weak compared to ps3
DaTruth  +   1966d ago
Strange that the 360 looks so tired and old compared to the PS3! PS3 is outclassing it 2 or 3:1.
kharma45  +   1966d ago
@ Meryl
360 can do 3D



Though I can't see Microsoft pushing it as hard as Sony, at least until we see whether or not 3D becomes a success or not.
Pennywise  +   1966d ago
Its too early for this nonsense. You don't even have a 360 game that looks good enough to beat 2007's Uncharted ONE. WTF are you talking about?

Are people like you in denial? Are you just young? Or are you paid by a company that can't back their talk up with hardware... they have to pay people to spread false information.

The GPU was not the top of the line when it released, but to try to give an edge to the 360 with its GPU is just silly while the PS3 is wiping the floor with its graphics.
sikbeta  +   1966d ago
Idk about GPU "Paawaar", but for The PS3 is GPU+CBEA, cos CELL Is NOT a Simple CPU...
E46M3  +   1966d ago
Read my post before flaming.

I didnt compare the PS3 gpu to the 360 gpu.

I was comparing them to the timeline. When the 360 Launched the Radion gpu present within it was uptodate.

When the PS3 launched RSX was already out of date.

This doesnt mean the GPU within the 360 is vastly superior to the RSX. I Ment to say Microsoft did a better job for its time.

Inorder for PS3 to be uptodate for its time, it should have launched with a 8000 series gpu from nvidia, which it didnt. It launched with a gen older gpu, which is why its comparable in power to the Gpu in the Xbox.

And yea in comparison to each other i would take a PS3 over the xbox 360 anyday.

However both of them are vastly outdated in terms of current tech.

Killzone 2 would like to have a word with you...
outside. Plus many others! :-)
raztad  +   1966d ago

Thanks for the lecture, but what is your point? it's not like the PS3 is lacking good looking games or 3D gaming is not coming pretty soon, is it?
Narutone66  +   1966d ago
Take into consideration
that to match the graphics of the PS3, the PC rig should have a graphic card that cost as much or more than a PS3.
Chris_TC  +   1966d ago
So the PS3 costs less than $100 now?
E46M3  +   1966d ago
Lol where did you get that Narutone.

I could get ya a 75usd GPU that will run Circles around the PS3.

Yes in the PC world Tech actually does advance. RSX is so old now its not even funny.

Pennywise  +   1966d ago
Good thing you can get a GPU for $75 that runs without a processor, ram, motherboard, a case, and a power supply.

You guys are trying so hard... which makes your fail so much better.
Nathan Drake2  +   1966d ago
i think in the end ps3 will sell around 200 million. i mean 3D, move, blu ray discs of 66GB, cell 50% used,it can sell the next 10 years easily.
kharma45  +   1966d ago
Blu ray discs of 66GB?

For the PS3 they max out at 50GB, the PS3 is incompatible with BDXL.
YourFlyness  +   1966d ago
a simple firmware upgrade can fix that
kharma45  +   1966d ago
Sadly it won't.

The Blu-ray lens inside the PS3 is not compatible with the new BDXL. This is due to the BDXL having four layers rather than two, meaning you will need a more powerful lens thats currently available in the PS3. Sony’s Blu-ray lens is only capable of reading up to two layers deep.
Monk3y  +   1966d ago
yes it will
PS3 is actually compatible with any Bluray discs that will be in the market, they just need to be patched.
jack_burt0n  +   1966d ago
BDXL is not a consumer product its a RW format for the corporate market.

Standard BD will get a 65gb upgrade which will be backwards compatible by next year then the 120gb revision and 320gb will follow by 2012.

Batman: Arkham Asylum - GOTY: Edition is also 3D compatible, I think.
On a sidenote, kind of suprised that the media havn't started calling these games for PS3D-games, or something similary cheesy. :-/

Good to hear but I wonder when 3D is really going to catch on? I don't plan on buying another tv any time soon and I'm sure a lot of people haven't or just did up grade to HD. It's going to be interesting to see what kind of marketing approach they come up with. I just don't see affordable 3D tv's out right away.
Redempteur  +   1966d ago
WIPEOUT and star dust are waiting ..at least i'll have game to try as soon as the update takes place...
crapgamer  +   1966d ago
Sony thinks because they succeeded in DVD and Blu Ray that they will succeed here. They will fail, I will NEVER, EVER buy a TV that I have to wear glasses for. I wont play 3-D games and I don't watch 3-D movies, it's ridicules to think you'd have to actually wear something over your eyes to enjoy it.
The average person wont want to do that and this 3-D thing is just a "FAD" that will die out like all the other 3-D fads.
The market for HDTV and DVD players and Blu Ray players is something almost everyone can get into, I don't see my parents or aunts, uncles or anyone for that matter actually buying into this. Epic fail in 3, 2, 1.....
raztad  +   1966d ago
Nobody is forcing you to buy anything man. Chill-out.

There are people out there interested in the tech. Let them to lead the way. I doubt 3D is a fad, considering all the industry (this is not only Sony) is pushing 3D very hard.

Not a bad list of games that are decent in their own right. Glad to see Sony isn't forgetting all those who invested in these games already.
roguewarrior  +   1965d ago
I'm on my second HDTV now i got to upgrade again. 720P to 1080P, now 3D. I'm waiting a year or two before i even thing about going 3D.
