A 3D collection of games including Super Stardust HD, WipEout HD, Pain and part of Motorstorm: Pacific Rift will be released to coincide with this. Those who already own these games will have an option to upgrade them for FREE.
I still don't own any of those games, but did they not jack up the price on Stardust HD because it had trophy support. I wonder if they are going to jack the price again for the 3D part.
... this is a great word. Yet, I feel like this article, and Sony, are stating an obvious. It's an update for the game if you have it, I guess the developers could charge for it but if they want people to like 3D, they would have to give them the experience for free first I guess. Don't think my flat screen can handle 3D anyways so yea ... and I'm not upgrading, I just got that thing.
SSHD cost me $10 months before trophies, and as far as I know it's still $10 today, so I dunno where you get this idea of raising the price when trophies were patched in.
actually i got stardust hd & the expansion pack for 7$ total ... BUT that during limited ( christmas ) sales when the price was lower .. the price hasn't changed since the start otherwise i think ..
Hah, I got all of them :) Only thing missing is a 3D TV.
same here *checking electronics store folder* €3000 for 3DTV ? I think I'm gonna wait till they are a bit cheaper
I may not want to upgrade if I cant keep the original game at the current resolution. Dont mine playing Wipeout in 3D however I may want to go back and play it in 1080p. I heard the 3D versions of those games lost some resolution. Is that true?
Even if they lost resolution you won't notice it. Remember if the picture is being rendered two times, one time for each eye. The combined 3d effects will make up for it.
Um, yeah you do notice it. I've played on 3D monitors on PCs, and I can honestly say the jaggies are just as obvious in 3D as out of it on lower resolutions. I'm sure consoles will be no different, and in case you didn't read the magazine feature on Killzone 3, the author even said himself that there is a noticeable quality drop, especially regarding resolution. Now something like WipEout HD is already running at 60fps 1080p 99% of the time (it switches resolutions mid-game to keep the framerate but it's really hard to notice), so probably will have nearly no quality drop at all in 3D, besides being dropped to 30fps.
hey but if i get the 3D upgrade, and want to play it back in just 1080p, will it still affect it or let me switch back? you probably dont know do you? edit: oh wait nevermind i dont care about this because i still dont have a 3Dtv and wont have one for a while.
Remember the fbi agent in Heavy Rain and his glasses? Remember how he got addicted to it so badly the tanks started shooting at him with the glasses off? Yea.... play too much SSHD3D and you'll start seeing asteroids attacking you as soon as you turn off the game and take off the glasses.
it will have an option in the game to play in 3D or regular
Gotta wait another year until KZ3. I have to save $200 a month.
If you ask me, I think 3D will be standard next-gen. Like this gen, a lot of people bought HDTVs. I think next-gen, a lot of people will be 3DTVs. I just want 3D without having to wear glasses.
I don't think that is possible. You could try to emulate the feeling by having the PSEye track your head, which should happen with all 3D games imo, but real 3D isn't possible without glasses.
Kigmal, your comment is rampant among consumer electronics producers' corporate offices. The idea in the CE trade industry was to make 3D necessary again by the next generation of games, movies, etc. in order to sell new expensive TV's to people that didn't need them. That's fine, but let's hope "next-gen" occurs five years from now if what you're saying is true. That's about enough time for the price of these TV's to get low enough to be affordable, and enough time for a "best-case scenario" slow/minimal full-time job market recovery in the States. Not to mention hopefully a recovery in Europe considering the debt crisis that will result in large budget cuts, which always seem to result in losses of jobs. Right now, I'm a little peeved that HDTV's rolled out not too long ago, and already they're looking to have us buy a set that's at least $2000 (as far as Bravia is concerned) for gaming. I know that gaming pushes tech along some times, and this PS3 3D stuff is probably intended to be a "Rich People Exclusive!" for a while, but right now this is just plain gouging the consumer. There's no reason for prices to be that insane. But your prediction, "...a lot of people will be 3DTVs" is pretty awesome. Like, if we were the TV's themselves. Maybe they ate our brains and we became TV-headed zombies in 2015. I'd just play Doctor Who marathons. The old ones, remade in 33333DDDDD!!!!
Hi Guys I know this is off topic but can anyone log onto the playstation store tonight?
it's under maintenance, try tomorrow.
thanks mate have a bubble got this message "this service is not available in your country/region" My little girl has been messin with my PS3 so thought she may have done something Sorry for off topic guys
no go apologise to your little girl....I bet you were cussing;)
its down for maintenance getting getting redy for 3d,supposed tu b up round 8:30
Eastern time pacific time?
Zydake, it's always Pacific Time! The US is nothing but California to most tech companies, especially if their home base is in Japan. Or California. Well, I guess if that 8:30 time is meant for just gtsentry and not the official announcement, that makes sense.
Sony you are going to charge me more to play these games in 3D if I buy them now? Do I get an option to buy it 3Dless now? I just got a PS3 not so long ago and while i dont own any of the games in question i may want to pick one or two up... but not liking the thought of having to pay extra for tech i wont use.
Where did you read that the games will cost more now that they are offered in 3D? The article only mentions that those who already have the game get a free optional upgrade to a 3D version. Nothing more, nothing less
maybe you should read the article before posting.
maybe he's not a reader O_O
If I bought the games already...and I am getting a "free" upgrade to to make them 3D .... It implies that Sony is doing the first adopters of the game a solid and giving them a free upgrade... i.e. its going to cost someone $ for the upgrade... Otherwise this is just a flippin PATCH and shouldn't be called a "free upgrade".
"It implies that Sony is doing the first adopters of the game a solid and giving them a free upgrade... i.e. its going to cost someone $ for the upgrade... Otherwise this is just a flippin PATCH and shouldn't be called a "free upgrade"." And what new-world-order anti-marketing-scheme laws stop Sony from calling it a free upgrade? It's free. To 3D TV holders (see my comments above), it's an upgrade. Sony can call their freebie-for-now whatever they want, aside from maybe "Baby in a Blender." Maybe that wouldn't work for them. Sony is trying to make their new move to 3D and their preorder-ready Bravias look as good as possible. They're rewarding early 3D adopters, and they figure many of them will get Sony TV's too. Even if not, even if they're only rewarding Samsung guys, they're moving the market for 3D forward and saying "Look! Told you this made sense!" to company stakeholders. Why are all my comments on this thing about business today? I'm boring myself to tears.
I have wipeout hd and Pain! :D but no 3d tv :/
Great News for Early Adopters, I'll wait cos my money is in another thing right now, but I want a 3DTV before the Day of GT5 Release, It'll be Totally Awesome...
I preordered my 46' Samsung 3DTV from Best Buy. I have been using it for like a month and a half now. Its pretty sweet. It converts to 3D now, but does not look 'great'. Im hoping full 3D supported games and movies look better, otherwise it was a waste of 2 grand.
I hope gamimg looks better for you. Wasting two grand in times like this is not cool.
It's allready a waste of money you have, Samsung is always rush those 3D TV's if a another company just introduce. Even Sony is the first who introduce those 3D TV, and yet Sony take their time for more quality. So, cancel is the only option you have. You need a better 3D TV and Samsung don't give a better 3D TV like Sony will do next month. I allready order those 3D TV from Sony.
Great news for the five people on the planet that own a 3d tv.
That's Sony for ya. The consumer always comes first.
I'm gonna sue Sony! This is an outrage! I bought my PS3 without these features and I'm being forced to download them for free? NO!
3d tvs need to be cheeper!
that'd be nice but at least make a way for people to save money if they all can't be a free trade.
Does anybody else notice that the kid in the picture is holding a 360 controller
I have a feeling it will be like, Original Copy of Game = $20 3D version = $50 Sony isn't that nice =)
