Who's Loading The Bigger Gun, Sony or Microsoft?

If Microsoft isn't ignoring the 3D revolution and they’re not going to create technology to work with special glasses, what are they hiding behind the development doors?

It`s no secret, everyone including Sony is working on a "no glasses" 3D. But like 3D w/ glasses, the tech will take time to perfect. "No glasses" 3D won`t be mainstream for a few years, so if you want 3D now or anytime soon buy the one`s w/ glasses.

I think Microsoft is (my opinion)

Because of KINECT as well as the half a billion dollar marketing campaign they are starting (much bigger than the coca cola campain for move) and not to mention that Microsoft already did the Halo Reach Mountain Dew campagin which kinda neutrals out sonys coca cola move thingy

plus the next Xbox is coming soon and its sure to be 3d enabled (glasses free) as well as be Kinect compatible, wow I cant wait for it!!

ps3 is going to be operating for more years to come, microsoft already wants a new console out. not much of a life span

Vicodin2526d ago (Edited 2526d ago )

Kinnetic?

You mean that old PS2 Eye Toy type motion controls that are so bad Microsoft had to fake their demos of it at E3 for the past two years and is desperately trying to keep the press from reviewing it just like SquareEnix is trying with their FFXIV fiasco?

A half a billion dollars isn't going to salvage Microsoft's Kinetic fiasco.

Compared to Sony and the PS3:

* 21 first party dev studios(MS only has 3)
* The insane graphical advantage the PS3 has over the weaker Xbox 360 - Uncharted 1&2,Killzone 2&3,Gran Turisom 5...
* Free online for everyone
* Standard dedicated servers for lagfree online play
* Support from all three major console regions - Asia,NA,Europe
* Blu-Ray 1080p movies standard
* 3D gaming
* Move - the only 1:1 motion controls available

Yeah, Kinetic and its shovelware has a chance against that.

Imperator2526d ago

After so much money on Kinect, do you think they really intend to release a new console soon? LMAO.

@GreenRingOfLife

Apparently you are quite clueless when it comes to 3D. The glasses free part is on the display side, not the video source. Any 3D source can be displayed on a glasses free 3D display, so the PS3 is already compatible with glasses free 3D. So you can go rush out and buy the crappy Toshiba ones that are coming out if you like.

1. first party studios dont mean as much when 99% of the best games on the console are third party multiplatform.
2. the PS3 has no graphical advantage over the 360. refer to any video of Gears of War 3 to prove this.
3. standard dedicated servers? so why doesnt Uncharted 2 have dedicated servers? i dont think you understand what youre trying to say. developers are free to use dedicated servers on both the PS3 and 360. pretty much the only ones that do on the PS3 are Sony owned companies, because sony provide the servers. even then, like in Uncharted 2s case, not all of them take the dedicated server route.
4. the 360 has support from the 3 main regions too. the japanese public give them very little support, but the developers are fully on board. and in the grand scheme of things, having the support of the japanese public means 2/10ths of f#$%-all.
5. the 360 offers numerous ways of watching 1080p videos, through streaming or download.
6. the 360 has 3D gaming.
7. Kinect offers 1:1 control as well. if you say it doesnt, you obviously dont know what 1:1 actually is, and you probably think that if theres a lag in the actions it means its not 1:1. this is incorrect - 1:1 has nothing to do with lag.

gcolley2526d ago

@IHateYouFanboys... why are you bothering. he obviously feels so strongly about his beloved console he doesn't mind coming off as a douchebag fanboy. this is one deluded idiot you are wasting your time with. it is like trying to talk a Jehovah's whitness out of their religion at your front door.

Keltik822526d ago

Are you seriously this delusional or do you intentionally say stupid things? The next Xbox is coming out soon?! Really, you honestly think that?

jessupj2526d ago

You've obviously never played or even seen a PS3 exclusive if you actually believe they have no graphical advantage and that 99% of multiplats are better than anything else out there. If you did you'd know how absolutely ridiculas that is. There's just so many things wrong with that statement I don't know where to begin...

IHateYouFanboys2526d ago (Edited 2526d ago )

@jessupj: "You've obviously never played or even seen a PS3 exclusive"

incorrect. the only games i own for my PS3 are exclusives, about 8 of them.

@Booch: "The underpowered and poorly designed Xbox 360 still can't even come up with a game that has Uncharted 1 level graphics..."

underpowered and poorly designed? how? its GPU is more powerful than the PS3s. its CPU has the same number of hardware threads (6) and runs at the same speed (3.2GHz). its design is actually fantastic, with incredible bus speeds and the eDRAM is brilliant for developers. the PS3 is the one with design problems.

Uncharted 1 didnt even look as good as Gears of War 1, let alone Gears 2. it had about 50% frame-tearing too.

"The PS2,GameCube, and Xbox were all similar in graphical power last gen."

wrong again. the xbox was MUCH more powerful graphically than the PS2. refer to the splinter cell games for the biggest evidence of this. this is not a debatable fact either.

" The PS2 destroyed the Dreamcast graphically."
also 100% incorrect. anyone that had both - myself included - can attest to this. the DC version of quake 3 was utterly beautiful and ran like a dream. the PS2 version, well the less said the better. same with games like UFC, Smackdown/royal rumble, Soul Calibur, etc.

"That's what happens when a company with zero console hardware experience rushes out a defective console "

so the xbox doesnt count as hardware experience? cause it came out before the 360 did.....wouldnt that mean that they DONT have zero hardware experience, on account of already having released hardware years earlier?

typical fanboy lol.

@FlatulentGhost below:

epic lolz! firstly, half of those 'screenshots' from Uncharted are actually from an unreleased build, not what we got at retail. now you might say that the retail game would look better, but thats not true. the unreleased build there was like the Killzone 2 'target render' - ie. it could not run on a PS3. those 'screenshots' of Uncharted are also supersampled, or did you not realise those images are MUCH bigger than the 1280x720 that is the games native resolution, since theres no way in the game to get character models up that close to take a screen capture? of course you didnt lol. putting a HUD on the top of the supersampled bullshot doesnt trick anyone whos got more than half a brain.

that ridiculously poor excuse for a website has also gone through and picked the very best possible situations for Uncharted and the worst for Gears to compare.

and also, none of that takes into account the fact that when youre PLAYING the game, Uncharted cant go 3 frames without tearing right in the middle of the screen lol.

FlatulentGhost2526d ago

A point by point breakdown using actual screen captures of Uncharted 1 humiliating Gears of War:

http://kineticninja.blogspo...

Mind boggling that Gears of War is the best the Xbox 360 can do and yet it is still destroyed by the first Uncharted.

ComboBreaker2525d ago (Edited 2525d ago )

We have PS3s and we have actually played Uncharted, and we can attest to you that, yes, those are in-game screen-shots of Uncharted, and yes, you can actually walk that close to Sully, and yes, Sully does actually look exactly like those screen-shots on our HDTVs.

I mean, come on dude, we've played it, we know what we're talking about. There's no point in trying to convince us to believe in your opinion.

It's the same as you're trying to convince us that a Civic is faster than a Lamborghini, but we have already raced and therefore already know for a fact that a Lamborghini is faster.

Sony is not only developing the 3DTVs with Glasses and without Glasses, also is developing a 360° 3D display:

Sony is developing more than this 3D Tech stuff.

darthv722526d ago

that is where they should be heading towards. This is a good step in that direction.

vsr2525d ago

Ms have timed exclusive dlc for COD only. next digital distribution xbox will be a failure and it won't interfere 3rd party PS3 exclusives like this gen.

Doctorofreality2526d ago

I read an article basically describing how THQ are in deep with some tech that can do the 3D without the specs, which may be pure rumour but anything is possible right?

kneon2526d ago (Edited 2526d ago )

There are lots of companies with the tech for glasses free 3D. The trick is to make it work for multiple viewers over a wide viewing angle and not have it cost more than a new car. We'll see who get's there first.

GCO Gamer2526d ago

Sony has the bigger guns.

metsgaming2526d ago

sony has a more accurate gun that for sure !

TheHip142526d ago

would you really wanna have to wear those big clunky glasses while gaming though

Parapraxis2526d ago

YEAH!
Next they'll be telling us to wear big ear-muffin headsets or stick stuff in our ears!

Thecraft19892526d ago

You really should try before you complain and really glasses are not the clunky well the ones I got with my sony are not they are fine while playing wipeout HD with my mates for few hours.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 3D Also is amazing I just wish some more blu rays would have 3d anyone with list of upcoming and ones that are out ?

Keltik822526d ago

I also have a 3D TV. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was so amazing and watching regular movies now suck lol. StarDust HD was really cool too.

ComboBreaker2525d ago (Edited 2525d ago )

"would you really wanna have to wear those big clunky glasses while gaming though"

Hmm...

Would you really wanna have to wear those big clunky headphone while listening to music though?

Would you really wanna have to wear those big clunky snowboards while snowboarding though?

Would you really wanna have to wear those big clunky football clits while playing football though?
