Killzone 3 Makers Run Into Unexpected Challenges Going 3-D

At the PAX video game conference taking place in Seattle this weekend, MSNBC had a chance to play a bit of "Killzone 3" in 3-D as well as chat with Steven Ter Heide, senior producer at Guerrilla Games. (Killzone 3, PS3)

lets hope these challenges are fixed asap. i bought a 32' 3dtv for killzone 3 and i intend to use it.
HyperBear  +   1668d ago
do they even make 3D TVs that are 32". I thought the lowest screen size you could get for 3D TV was 40"?

Edit: I think in general, implementing 3D into this gen of video games is pretty useless and a waste of time. 3D is a very niche market, and the way Sony are telling their developers to create 3D processing for their games is kind of a waste of time, because it only appeal to those 5-10 thousand (or so) people who own 3D TVs. I think Sony should have spent more time integrating 3D into the homes and cable TV first, then by the time PS4 comes around, and millions of people own 3D sets, then push 3D like theres no tomorrow. I just think Guerrilla could spend way more time on creating a great shooter experience, then deal with 3D. Thats just my 2 cents..

Edit #2: Ahh, cool. I did not know they had AMOLED 3D tvs that range from 15"-32". Thanks for the link Poseidon.

KZ is the playstation's flagship title
And that means that GG is burdened with the humongous task of smashing boundaries every time. Before KZ2, there were plenty of fanboys claiming that ps3 could not outdo the Xbox (even if it had already). There were lots of talk that KZ2 would not match the target and yea GG shut up all the naysayers.

So yea with Sony pushing 3D and Move, how could it's flagship title not include these features? Watch how many KZ fans go out and buy a 3DTV just for the ultimate experience.

Is anyone genuinely surprised at this write up? There are a total of 3 sentences in the article which are not a direct part of either a negative comment or else describing the impossible challenges facing Guerrilla Games.

As I stated there is little shock at the overall tone of this piece. It is PMSNBC we are discussing. Their history of inventing issues with the PS3 and it's respective titles is no mystery, that much is sure. their only goal is to locate some small scrap of information which can be waved about in a negative light. I guess the continual hoisting of a white flag is killing their fashion sense.

They probably realised it looked like crap because they couldn't even do subpar HD, (PC the only true 1080P 3D platform)

KZ3 is gonna be epic. I really hope I have a 3D TV by then.
hakis86  +   1668d ago
I bought a 50" 3DTV
from Samsung - so yeah I hope they find a solution =)
TheBand1t  +   1668d ago
42 inch Panasonic plasma and I sure as hell ain't upgrading to 3D anytime soon
lonix  +   1668d ago
Give it 2-3 years
And you won't find a new tv that isn't 3d ready
militant07  +   1668d ago
1 year is enough
treereet  +   1668d ago
How about just doing what vanquish does. Get rid of the annoying blood splatter and just go into bullet time when low on health. The player knows they are in trouble and they are given help rather than being hindered by crap all over the screen.
kneon  +   1668d ago
That would be ok in single player but you can't use that method in multiplayer. Putting you in slow motion while everyone else isn't certainly would not be any help :)

cant wait to play this on my 65 3d tv i love killzone!!!
Kevin McCallister  +   1668d ago
Most of us only own an HDTV now (or bought one earlier than planned) so that we could fully utilize PS3 and 360's HD capabilities. Can't believe they're expecting folks to buy yet another TV within a 4 year timespan of the console's release.

Yup, I spent quite a crap load on my 46 incher plasma, and I don't expect another one for at least five more years.
claterz  +   1668d ago
Maybe Sony should have warned us when the PS3 was released that 3D was coming so we could start saving up lol.
OneSneakyMofo  +   1668d ago
It's okay. Even if this game doesn't have 3D, I'll still be Killzowned by it.
milohighclub  +   1668d ago
i reckon the stuff on screen like HUD n menu's n stuff should come right out screen so its a few inch from your eyes and they should incorporate some use of pseye example, with the menu near your face you touch the option you want to choose the the eye judges where your touching and matches in comparison to where the menu is and selects that one kinda like kinect think it would feel futuristic minority report style.

and the blood should splash from the screen going in the the kz world with bits flying out

@treereet yeah i like that idea its awesome on vanquish and should be used more often!!!
Bordel_1900  +   1668d ago
I really hope they don't waste time and resources on getting 3D to work, with Killzone 3, that should have been used on making the game better and more fun. If the implementation of 3D compromises Killzone 3 then I'm all against 3D in this title.

If they can implement 3D without compromising quality, design and playability then I'm for it.

I'm considering getting a 3D tv but managed to convince myself to hold back for at least 6 months because a) the price of them will drop b) i wanna see if it actually takes off or if it's just pushed by sony for some first party titles before fizzling out and c) I don't wanna spend a grand on a nice tv with glasses only to find 12 months later theres talk of better quality 3d tv's that don't need glasses.

I dunno how long it will be until we actually see 3d tv's that don't require glasses on the market for a reasonable price but i imagine in 6-12 months we'll have a better idea. I guess this is the toss up between being an early adopter and not
cliffbo  +   1668d ago
A) the price may come down
B)it is going to take off and it is not just sony it is all manufacturers so why say sony ?
C)no there will not be a 3DTV without glasses any time soon and if there is it isn't going to be anywhere near as good as the shutter glasses 3D
YoungKingDoran  +   1668d ago
lol, thank you MSN.com for another informative sony related article
DigitalAnalog  +   1668d ago
"Hype-Killing" articles like this is actually good if you think about it...
Hater's expectations will get lower and lower, which means the crow GETS BIGGER AND BIGGER. We can then savor all our laughter and mockery to the fools later on.

In 3D....

I'll get a 3DTV someday but for right now, I'm good with my 52 inch 120hz TV. It plays all my games with great color and sharpness. I'll have Killzone 3 by the time 3DTV is everywhere so I can check it out then because I never trade in my games. Feb 2011 cannot come soon enough!

I have a 72in Mitsubishi 3DTV so i own all 0.0 lol, regardless this game is going to be aesome in 3D hopefully, CANT WAIT!!!!!
