I'll care about 3D the next time I need a TV.

feelintheflow2686d ago

I purchased a 55 inch led tv about 6 months ago. I don't see me, or any other person who bought an hdtv in the last two years, upgrading just for 3d. Before HDTV, people didn't go out and buy a new tv every two years, so why does everyone think that they will do that now?

Xbox 360, Jump IN the banwagon. Just bothers me that they dissed 3D before and now that they realize that it will be the next step for gaming now they are on board. Greenburg said he didn't like the idea of 3D in the home because there are distractions like his cell phone in the living room lol

@below, Just give it a rest...

You forgot the "D" which actually stands for "Darkoniondumbass".. .

M$ already announced to the world back in April a 3D bundle package with LG...3D is a gimmick and a cash grab...3D tech without the glasses already exists...may not be cost effective but it's here...They all 2-3 yrs, you will need to buy a new TV again..and a new console...Sony didn't invent 3D...get a grip...

HDMI 1.2 can't do 3D, unless you mean RED/BLUE 3D

notmushroom2686d ago

Unless the new 360 will have a different spec HDMI. But then you'd be alienating the people with older machines. Guess we'll soon find out.

fr0sty2686d ago

^that's what i'm thinking. the new 360 has hdmi 1.4

NecrumSlavery2686d ago (Edited 2686d ago )

Is that a question or a confirmation? HDMI 1.4 is used with an HD format. Does DVD even do Real D technology?

Mista T2686d ago

it won't be as good as 3d from hdmi 1.3 and 1.4

Pandamobile2686d ago (Edited 2686d ago )

I really don't think HDMI has anything to do with it. You can run a stereoscopic 3D signal through a VGA cable into an ancient CRT monitor on PC if you really wanted to.

The Great Melon2686d ago (Edited 2686d ago )

It has to probably do with the amount bandwidth required. You can do 3D on a low bandwidth cable, but you will likely have to sacrifice resolution. As with your example, there is a maximum resolution that you can output through a VGA cable. You need some of the newer hdmi cables to do 1080p 3D video along with the necessary image refresh rates.

Pandamobile2686d ago

Yeah, but how many 360 games are going to be in 1080p at 60 FPS AND 3D?

I've played games in stereoscopic 3D over a VGA cable at 1280 x 1024 at the monitor's full refresh rate of 100 hz and I didn't encounter any problems.

Accouncement: "Kinect has lenses that shoot 3D directly into your eyes."

Result: Everyone in the audience dies


Bellcross2686d ago (Edited 2686d ago )

I rather Sony handle 3D thank you very much, after all they know what they're doing they make 3D TVs.

Now wait for 360 fanboys to say 3D is the future after the catastrophic fail, of dare I say. "KINECT"

Hypocrisy look it up.

Silver3602686d ago

Sony wants MS to go 3D so sony can sell more televisions. It isn't always about competition.

GiggMan2686d ago (Edited 2686d ago )

I'm sure that Sony (and other 3D TV manufactures) would love this. Potentially more 3D TV's sold.

Also that's just great... I'll have two 3D capable systems and no TV to play them on. Hopefully there will be a pretty good deal in time for the holidays.
