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
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.
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.
@Vicodin: "* 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 " 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.
@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.
Are you seriously this delusional or do you intentionally say stupid things? The next Xbox is coming out soon?! Really, you honestly think that?
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...
@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.
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.
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: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Sony is developing more than this 3D Tech stuff.
that is where they should be heading towards. This is a good step in that direction.
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.
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?
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.
Sony has the bigger guns.
sure they do.
That's what she said.
sony has a more accurate gun that for sure !
would you really wanna have to wear those big clunky glasses while gaming though
YEAH! Next they'll be telling us to wear big ear-muffin headsets or stick stuff in our ears!
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 ?
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.
"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?
If all the new tech is the "big guns", then the games are the ammunition. Better question: Who has more ammunition for their big guns in this shootout?
for me it depends who you ask the hardcore gamers will say sony the casuals will say MS the sales fanboys will say MS personally i say sony because i want games
Actually you like waiting for games if that's the case.
Well it's better than waiting for NPD...
haha bubbles dude.... i will reply that from now on everytime someone says something related to delaystation...
Didn't Gears 3 get pushed back? What about Alan Wake, SCC? Too Human? All consoles have delays, but he point is that PS3 owners will actually be getting games. You, on the other hand, will have to put up with shovelware crap on Kinect.
That's better than waiting for NPD each month and playing 'count the sales'. But of course you're acting as if games on the 360 have never been pushed back before.
Honestly, when i got my PS3 back in July I thought I'd be playing all these amazing games. I was oh so very wrong. None of the games were fun! Yes they all were BEAUTIFUL but for some reason only one game (Heavy Rain) really made me feel like I got my moneys worth.. I'm just hoping Gran Turismo 5 or Resistance 3 are interesting because I'm currently about to trade it in.
In gaming history 90% of advancements in technology have all occurred on the PC, before making its way down to consoles. The biggest exception for this is obviously the wii with its motion gaming. Having said so, I think that if 3D can be accomplished successfully on the PC, then sure, the PS3 could do it.
u goons approved this crap without a image ffs
glasses free 3d is not going to happen maybe 3d where all you use is the same as the glasses at a movie theater currently ok there is an execption to this there will be small screens capable of glasses free 3d but you are never gonna have 40" + screen sizes without glasses of some sort ( well untill they have some sort of hologram display)
How about 180" Just don't ask how much it would cost http://techon.nikkeibp.co.j...
ok well your still not gonna get the same type of experience you got from watching avatar in 3d without glasses basically it will look like you have a box of space behind the pannel of the screen ( honestly if you have watched any sports on a current 3dtv thats what it looks like anyhow) the gimmick of good 3d is things that reach beyond the screen avatar did this well in the theater oh and fyi sega had 3d glasses for the sega master system when I was a kid for the time it actually worked decent and it used the same lcd shuttering effect that they are using now but it was wired to the system
by the time microsoft loads their damn gun, itll jam.
There needs to be a new xbox not another repackaging of the same old teck but with a motion sensing camera.
dude youre a fkn fanboy. a ps3 fanboy. youre the worst kind of fanboy. kiss my 360 havin ass,,, and to hell with the bubble
you have it all wrong buddy, ihateyoufanboys is a 360fanboy, read his freaking comments. so both of you can kiss each others arsses
I just saw my first 3-D movie..."jackass 3D" it was cool and all...but I don't think I want to be in front of my tv with glasses on and a head set playing games.
very different from the kind of 3D used for PS3 games.
"Phil Spencer from Microsoft Studios was saying earlier this week that the glasses based 3D technology is not quite realistic for the mainstream gamer. He explained that the Xbox 360 is not ignoring the progress and concept of 3D gaming altogether, but commented that when it comes down to it, gamers are not very likely to fork out the cash (some 100 odd dollars/ 80 ish pounds) for several pairs of glasses required to enjoy the 3D experience like the PS3 is already supporting and pushing for." Boy he has some nerve talking about the customers spending extra money on 3d for the ps3 considering that the xbox 360 business structure is a nickle and dime console, and in fact if the average customer were to have all of the features that come with the ps3 on the 360 that customer would be shelling out a lot more cash for the xbox 360 in which the ps3 would be and is the better value. The pay to play online structure that microshaft charges(and has recently raised the annual yearly fee) alone costs more than the cost of the ps3 in the long run. If anyone that believes this microshaft propaganda garbage they deserve to be ripped off and brainwashed, because I don't know who in their right mind would accept that. And would'nt you know that toshiba is going to release a glasses free 3d tv this year or soon: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1... . See this is what I mean by microshaft trying to pull the wool over unsuspecting people/customers, and it is a perfect example of one of the reasons why I don't like microshaft. I mean can you blame me?
so after being on here & readin comments about which system is better & how dumb u r 4 owning 1 or the other ive finally decided i wanna become a hardcore fan & giv up my extra system...only problem is i dont kno which 2 go wit can ne1 help me choose which ever i giv up u can hav.
Let the battle begin, lol.(+bubble)
