TheSixthAxis reports that WipEout 3D is all ready for 3D - pop in the game and you'll get the patch.
Why sonyyyyy damnit
... or expect to buy one eventually. I just got my 1080p flatscreen, and I will not spend more money on a new TV for some time now. My last TV, an RCA, lasted me 10 years ... an if I can take care of this one (and it is solid enough) I hope it last me just as long.
I got my HDTV a year or two ago. I dont plan on upgrading for a LONG time. Sorry sony :( I will have to miss out on 3D gaming.. i'll regret it, but it's not financially possible. Speaking of which, did the 3d firmware update for games already come? I thought it was this month? or is that 3d movie fw update coming this month? >.< I'm soo confused
... also some games already had it built into them (a la Lengend of Han Tao). the fw update should be out soon but some games have been updated already I believe.
Ah thanks for the clarification +bubs
I can only imagine how awesome this would look.
Got a HD tv have to save for a 3D tv but what's next a diddledeD tv. Have Wipeout HD now I know that hiding in my PS3 is the 3D version but I can't play it. :(
Warhawk would look pretty crazy in 3D. I still need to buy the wipeout fury pack, that looks amazing.
Warhawk I loved that game so much. Bad Company 2 in 3D would be really very epic also.
...for the 20 PS3 owners with 3DTVs. :o
21 PS3 owners :)
Sorry guys....I got my #s from NPD. ;)
Wipeout HD is insane looking without 3D. With 3D, it would probably make someone go insane lol I need to pick me up a 3D TV. I'm waiting for the Sony 3D TVs to come out and also to see if there are issues with it. If it's buggy, I'll just wait till they work out the bugs and pick one up later.
arent i right? :)
So do you need the glasses to play or don't you? I am a little behind on the 3D thing :)
You do. Sorry, man. :(
In that case I'll wait till I don't need glasses. Thanks for the info..bubbles
I was CTIA (conference in US) earlier this year and there was a TV on dislpay showing 3D video without the need for glasses. There was no name on it though. The TV was a little thicker than a 'normal' LCD/Plasma TV but the effect worked really well. No idea if such a tv would work with the PS3 though or whether you absolutely need the glasses ... anyone know?
Don't know if it's the same one you're referring to, but they had some of these - various brands/developers - at CES this year. Very early tech, though, by the sound of it. Lot's of tricks to hide problems (software developed esp for demonstrations) and even then had an unusable viewing angle for consumer level needs (and many of the large models required the viewer to be distanced very precisely to/from the tele for it to work - was basically a 'sweet spot'). It's definitely the next step imo, but what i've read suggests it's a way off. Large screen 3d with glasses should be at least 4 maybe 5 years before the glasses start to be done away with (and i'd imagine that'll be pretty pricey tech first year or two). I'd say it'll go a)glasses 3dtv Plasma/led, b)Oled Glasses 3dtv (sometime in 2012), and c)Oled 3dtv sans glasses (probably 2014/15?). Depending how long you keep a tv for - and how recently you bought one - i suspect now is actually a pretty good time to buy in for the glasses 3d. It'll probably get somewhat better (though the Plasma models already work pretty much as you'd expect - almost no crosstalk). Imagine it'll be even more irritating buying in one or two years time with the next two obvious steps getting closer and closer to your purchase (if you're someone who is inclined to look at the green grass over the fence.)
