Gadgets Galore: 3D will be a gimmick, but a great 'showroom' feature for PS3

DFCINT writes: "We all knew that the 2010 E3 was going to be about 3D and motion control. In this regard we definitely were not disappointed. Our heads were spinning with all the new accessories designed to enhance the game experience. Now the big issue is figuring out whether consumers will bite. Overall, we must say we remain a little skeptical about some of the approaches.

DFC Intelligence just released its latest forecast of the worldwide video game, PC game and online game markets through 2015 where we forecasted a gradual slowdown in sales for the Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox 360, with a pickup in sales for the Sony PlayStation 3 in 2010 and 2011. Our forecasts vary significantly by country with the Xbox 360 stronger in the U.S. and U.K., while the PlayStation 3 is stronger in continental Europe and Japan. However, we continue to believe that the Wii will have the highest overall sales, even as the system faces a year-over-year sales decline."

The story is too old to be commented.

Define Gimmick: a drawback or difficulty that is not readily evident; "it sounds good but what's the catch?"

Hmmm Kinect is definitely a gimmick.

3D isnt a gimmick
