The PS3 only does everything, except good 3D

Gamer Limit writes: "A lot of people are skeptical about the future of 3D gaming on consoles, but until recently, I was not one of them. Actually, one of the highlights of E3 I was most looking forward to was finally getting my hands on some of the 3D games Sony announced for the PS3, like Killzone 3 and Wipeout HD.

Maybe I shouldn’t have had such high hopes though, because if there’s one thing life has taught me, it’s that few things ever live up to the hype. Now that I’ve played multiple PS3 games in 3D, I’m here to explain why the console isn’t quite ready to jump into the third dimension just yet."

Good quality article but come on, 3D is just starting out, give it a chance.

Shaman2889d ago

3D like KZ3s wont really work that well on this gens consoles,its a fact.Its simply needs more horsepower than those consoles have.Have you seen comparison between KZ3 2d and 3d?Its night and day...full of jaggies and its very low resolution.We will have to wait and see Cryteks solution,performance hit is only 1.5% and its 720p,its more pleasing on eye(as alot who saw it said) and it got alot of awards from E3 for its 3D.

I'm sorry to burst your bubble but the developer himself stated that it won't compromise the visuals.

You will worship anything that is Crytek knowing they can work with nearly limitless capacity on the PC and yet you will fail to give credit to 1st party studios simply because they are from Sony.

I really hope you remember the days of GOWIII's demo back when it was severely attacked by underwhelming graphics by many news sources.

-End statement

Rock Bottom2889d ago

So at the start of your comment you say 3D wont work with this gen's console and how they need more horsepower, then you go on to talk about how Crysis 2 got 3D right?

I like it when people make themselves look like idiots. :)

raztad2889d ago (Edited 2889d ago )

I LOL @ people thinking Crytek with its cheap trick will do better 3D than Sony and their team that are experts in 3D tech.

GT5 is 3D ready since almost 2 years ago. Game runs flawless at 60 fps 720prs in 3D. The way they do sounds awfully similar to Crytek recently discovered "magic" trick which render the 3D image inside the screen.

I dont doubt KZ3 will be 720p 30fps vsynced in real 3D. Guerrilla will prove the doubters wrong again.

I cant shake the feeling 3D on xbox vs 3D on PS3 will prove to be like upscaled dvd vs BD.

I like how the author includes a 3D movie which absolutely sucked as his Article Picture, just to subliminally make you agree with his biased opinion.
The truth is, 3D for gaming is in it's first generation, like a beta... You're telling me that's been out enough years to be developed at great standards? Besides I'm sure for most games it will just be an option to enable 3D or however that works out. Like FishCake said, give it a chance.

RedDevils2888d ago (Edited 2888d ago )

have just show us the proof that there is still lots of dumbass within this world we live in :D

zeeshan2888d ago

And when you can't find any. Shaman stands up and says "HERE I AM!"

Lich1202888d ago

The fact of the matter is, to produce 3d visuals you have to render the scene twice for every one frame we actually see. Because of this, its common sense that games which are presently taking full advantage of the platform they are on are going to have to take a hit in visuals to account for the double frame rendering.

You can't give it a chance, not when the console you support has slagged off on 3D. It's like Bluray, same fight all over again.

Legosz2889d ago

Wrong. 3D will never work unless someone actually has a big 80'' projection screen, that is when you can take full advantage of 3d technology. Have you ever played a 3d game on a 42'' TV? No you have not, and I have. I can tell you 3D will never work on todays small televisions.

Godmars2902889d ago

Since when was a 42" set considered "small?"

Would also like to know what contest you used 3D, since what's being talked about by Sony is something new.

Qui-Gon Jim2888d ago

The size of the TV/screen only matters in relation to how far away you sit. THX standards are that the distance between you and the screen should be 1.5 to 2 times the diagonal screen size (eg. my 40" is the recommended size since my couch is about 5 feet away from it). A 46" screen can seem small if you sit 10 ft away, and a 32" screen can seem huge if you're 2 ft away from it.

There is some personal preference involved, but if you're watching things on a 80" screen and you're less than 10 feet away from it, then you have to move your eyes or head around to see everything.

Long story short: you don't need a huge screen to enjoy 3D.

snp2888d ago (Edited 2888d ago )

Actually, Legosz i own a 50" Samsung Plasma 3dtv.

Watch it from about 3 meters away (intend on setting up lounge to watch from ~4.5/5 meters, but have to wait on getting rid of a piece of furniture).

Size isn't a problem; the effect comes through fine.

The article has some valid points - the darkness when glasses are on takes some getting used to and is a negative of the tech - but other areas it's just over the top. The Hud on Wipeout for example, doesn't bother me in the slightest and he's being histrionic there. Yes if you stare at it, it doesn't seem usefully placed, but if you are playing the game watching your track and vehicle (which is the way i play) it's much of a whatever.

The biggest problem with 3dtv, actually having a few hours experience of it now, is in ghosting/cross talk. But even this seems as much software as hardware. Wipeout will go for large chunks of having none, and then some will pop up right at the end (or the vehicles won't synch up properly right at the start, but then will be fine for the rest of the race etc.). The areas of cross-talk don't seem to occur in areas any more complex than those without it. Super Stardust is probably the prettiest 3d (although 3rd person Wipeout is most effective). It has virtually no cross-talk, and is a really pretty sort of stencil syle 3d.

Sometimes you'll get cross-talk on really simple movies (trailers), but then quite comparatively complex trailers (eg. a german 3d trailer for Avatar) and it works flawlessly, and there is none. So again, i'm wondering if that's a limitation of software/implementation at least some of the time.

But that is imo the biggest problem. For the most part this article is merely subjective nitpicking - which he is, of course entitle to do, but something that can be done with every piece of technology, and every aspect of every game for that matter.

Shameful biased ignorant hick author I would say (no offense).

This guy should try out to do 3D Animation since he can provide faster feedback than a camel on rollerskates.

"The PS3 only does everything...except full hd on most of its games

Toman852888d ago

But the exclusive to PS3 is better looking than the titles on MS side by a big rockslide ;)

i heard the dev say 3d in 1080p myself so it is confirmed.

evrfighter2888d ago


I was gaming at 1280x1024 before the ps3 even dropped lol

1920x1080 is what's commonly referred to as 1080p. Which GT5 does not play at.

Though still 1280x1024 I would consider HD on a non widescreen monitor. So it's bound to look better than your common 540p/720p console game.

1233602889d ago

hand held 3ds versus 60" 3d lcd thats whats happening a lot from all sites but mostly these one man band reveiwers,bottom line can,t afford it so knock it,it happened with bluray and even the ps3 as a console,now the price has come down every one wants it.3ds is of zero interest to me, why even mention it a 3" [email protected] screen and cookin mama crap

Apparently 1080p Bluray looks not much better than standard definition; or that's what they'd have us believe back in 2007. We all know that's not true now so we can assume many fanboy bloggers will say the same about 3D!

Edit @ a lot of you: Damn, you people argue too much! I can't believe some of you have kept this up since 2006!

You guys are ridiculous!
