First an article bad mouthing Jack Tretton, now another '3D is teh dooomez' article. Goozernation who are you and why should I read your hate.
Hate? Did you read the article perchance? It's just about my experiences with a couple of 3D games and my gripes with them. Basically, 3D is not great for gaming, at least now.
Well it seems you had a bad experience with nVIDIA and two games that werent designed to run in 3D. I think it is too early to be writing gloom articles. Before jumping to conclusions give some PS3 3D retrofited games a try. MS:Pacific 3D Rift is a good example. Of course games made from the ground up to run in 3D would be much better showcases.
The same assumptive and erred articles from trash sites like this have peppered this site for 2 years. Bluray is doomed. The PS3 is doomed. The PSP is doomed. Move is doomed. Sony is doomed. You're doomed. In reality the only thing doomed are worthless sites like goozernation and the diminishing intellect of it's 15 year old writer. Here is a sign certain sites aren't worth a breath of bad air. One person writes and submits their own articles. Then they go on the defense the minute you disagree. They love to sit in their room jabbering away by keyboard spewing articles, questioning craftsmen, and insulting our intelligence. But the minute the light is turned on them they have a temper tantrum. Ego alert. "Pay attention to me! I matter!" No, you don't. Really you don't. And neither do your attempts at hit inducing bombastic articles that are little more than mental sewage.
BS, everyone is saying otherwise, 3D is the future, but dont expect high sales because it still in early its adoption phase. Stop the hate Goozernation.com
who the hell is goozernation anyway?
Your opinion is noted. Not taken seriously but noted none the less. Mine differs. Unlike most people I actually give technology a chance before I pass judgement. I have yet to see 3D gaming that I did not like. I think it adds another level of immersion like nothing else I have experienced before. Every person I know that has witnessed 3D gaming first hand have all said the same thing as myself. It truly adds a level of depth and immersion like nothing else any of us have ever tried before. 3D gaming isn't going any where any time soon.
everyone's experience will differ. That is pretty much common sense. People who wear glasses or contacts will suffer more problems than those with 20/20 vision. Even those with perfect vision will have issues depending on the type of glasses and content. 3D is nice but it will kill itself if it keeps getting put on things that dont deserve it. Crap in 2d given the 3d treatment is just 3d crap. There is a market for it just like there is a market for streaming media/games. Is that market now...? I do know that each time 3d has made a come round, it has been better than before. The push by sony for 3d is somewhat questioning however. I dont know if they really think this is the time or if it is all they got left this gen. I do know that tv's with ultra definition resolutions are on the horizon. Will they too be 3D or have those companies invested to much in such a high resolution output?
3D gaming will be the future so why say its already DOA? Flamebait is what this article screams
Just like HDTV was DOA because not everyone bought it day one. /s
I only agree that it's a little expensive to get a 3D TV, at the moment. The rest, I disagree. I think you've based an opinion on 3D with games that were not even designed to be in 3D and then concocted your verdict as, meh. (or " Basically, 3D is not great for gaming, at least now") Moan, moan, moan, that's all people do about the glasses, get over it. All i know is, as soon a 3D tvs come down in price, i will get one. Not only that but, everyone who buys a new TV will get 3D included. Why? Because ALL new HD TVs will eventually get the feature added. (just like SD is being upgraded to HD) Therefore HOW IS IT DEAD?
why should we not to read? i want 3d without glasses. period. lol at sony and nvidia...both companies lossing ground in gaming. and 3d is a good move for them to sell more.
How is Sony "lossing ground" in gaming? *checks iMad's comment history" Never mind, clearly you are a troll.
Umad imad? Just cause your poo60 can't do this don't hate congratulate.
"i want 3d without glasses" Then enjoy having a TV with a 2 degree viewing angle and paying more for it, too.
Where's the article about Jack Tretton?
I think it failed approval, can't seem to find a link. My apologies I think I might have mixed sites up here :S The Jack Tretton thing was a different site, DOH!
Yes I read the article, it was just a perpetuation of a misinformed consensus, with little to no valid points made. You took it upon yourself to write this article with only two PC games worth of 3D experience and you think you can proclaim in your flame-bait title that 3D gaming is "dead on arrival"? To be quite honest I've seen more thought-out articles in The Sun (UK trashy newspaper for people who don't know). Now, please try harder next time, maybe you can earn yourself a little credibility. edit: Apologies for the Jack Tretton comment as that was someone else, my opinion of your article still stands though.
It's the same case for HDTVs in the market.
is a gimmick
everything after the joystick is a gimmick, there are useful gimmicks that will have a long life, and there are stupid gimmicks like the power pad.
your article is ''dead on arrival''.. I guess it is just an opinion but do people really want yours?
Um, yeah, I want to read his opinion. He's a real gamer and not some corporate schmuck trying to make deadline or sell something. I have no interest in 3D gaming if I have to wear glasses.
yea sure you want his opinion because you want to confirm your thoughts about 3d technology? Why need someone else to think for yourself when you already know what you think of it...
So was blu-ray and the Wii!!!
Blu-Ray was not DOA. It was in a heated competition with MS's HD and it wound up winning.
3D gaming I guess is good for some and not for others. When ever you can give me the 3D experience with out the glasses then I might jump on board. Its crazy to pay $180 bucks for a pair of 3D glasses, course they might be cheaper else where but not here. I guess if your rich then why not but not this guy. No glass or no deal!
I want 3d gaming to make a difference. Yeah, it's cool, but I want it to be worth something. Like the 3DS games I hear about where you have to turn the machine and look behind things. Other than that, I'd rather see gaming innovation than eye candy.
What I want to see is holographic gaming. Now that would be cool.
The technology to view 3D without glasses(large screen) is years away. The current technology is not practical. You have limited viewing angles and you have to remain stills so for now the only that works well is 3D with glasses.
While I'm excited about the 3DS, 3D gaming in general doesn't appeal to me.
Ya. I agree. 3D gaming is awesome. But eyewear cripples it. Before it's time.
This article will be like: 3D Gaming teh innovation, its a must buy!
Im with the guys above, 3D with no glasses or GTFO
Okay then I guess we will see you back here 2018 - 2020? Glass(less) 3D displays with acceptable viewing cones and reasonable pricing is a LONG way away. People really need to learn this reality.
Surveys say 80% of gamers feel differently! I'm sure Sony won't miss the 20% who are against or undecided on 3D glasses!
"Granted, Guild Wars isn't exactly a game designed for 3D, so I can only be so hard on the technology that was undoubtedly shoehorned onto the original game." Nuff said, the dude who wrote this is obviously just an attention whore. Making a statement like "3-D is teh doomz on arrival" being a gaming media site, knowing that Sony is gearing up for a huge 3-D overhaul, who hasn't even tried SSDHD (lol @ Dead Rising 2) or any other game that was actually meant for 3-D. I strongly suggest you change the way you do your research if you want us real gamers to take you and your noobish articles seriously.
I really don't understand so called gamers these days. They are all pretty much a bunch of spoiled kids that throw fits when they don't get what they want. Glasses are not a big deal and never really are. Most people that complain about them are those people that can not afford them in the first place so they talk trash. Those that do have real gripes about the glasses I respect that. You can not judge 3D games until a real one releases. A real 3D game will be built from day one with 3D not a game that just adds it in later. Until one releases you really can't make a justified statement that it is good or not. If you want real 3D at this time you NEED GLASSES if you don't want them then STFU and move on with your life.
I don't want sun protection for my eyes unless it is glasses-less! Until then, I will miss out on sunny days and driving east in the morning and west in the evening!
It looks amazing but after a while my brain hurts...
So was the PS3 /s
I think it's too soon for 3D. There was a huge push for 3D over the past summer, and I think it makes sense because it offered an experience that people couldn't get at home. It put people in the theaters. Blu-ray and HD are just now finally catching on with middle-America. I think it's too soon for 3D. I feel that it's really not that well thoughtout. With America's economy still being in the gutter, I can't imagine people have money to seriously throw at a $3-$6K television just to get a little depth in their TV enjoyment.
stop exaggerating 3d TVs can be bought for less than $2000 now and are coming down in price all the time and so are the glasses. also how is it too soon? if someone doesn't push the tech it will NEVER happen at all because nobody will dare to try.
3D is a new innovation in these recent years, and that at best to gaming. Games are built for dynamics and mechanics, story, and gameplay and to say 3D is dead is because it's such a new technological addon to add to games to immerse the user experience in a more in depth game to play. For one to claim that 3D is dead on arrival is a nostalgic biased opinion of yours, and you have to look at the bigger picture here, there's a market for everything, there's going to be a market for 3D games. So this article is bad, and baddy sites like this need to take both sides of the spectrum before preaching to the world that 3D sucks.
Once they are out. The Industry will change for the better! First up.. Black Ops!! ^_^
Read your fanboy manual. Any technology Sony pushes is wrong. Nintendo makes a handheld that you have tl stare at it directly to get 3D effects to give you eye and neck strain.Right. Sony comes up with 3D gaming that works in synch with Move and PS3. Wrong. See how that works?
What you resist, persists.
And a 60" Mitsubishi is $800. At hhgerg and 65" is $1,400 , a 73" and 80" exist and are cheaper than Sony bravias and are 3d ready. So quit being cheap, go get a cheap dlp so you don't have to pretend you don't like 3d gaming. You sound like dumbasses, I don't want cutting edge technology...why don't you throw out your 360's and ps3s and go play atari 2600 and why you're at it get a phone with a big wheel on it.
You're sitting there implying tech for the 70's is cutting edge.. Really? Really? 3d isn't NEW, it wasn't cool when they first did it and it isn't cool now. Stop being so ignorant.
Why are all of you fighting for this gimmick? Why? Because Sony said it's cool? It's a gimmick nothing more. How many companies BESIDES Sony have actually shown real interest? Oh that's right none. Not even EA cares, and EA cashes in on EVERY gimmick.
I'm gaming at 720P 3d projector 110" and no problems here. DLP optoma glasses that keep perfect synch via white light with my optoma projector, I still use nvidia 3d driver so still have the IR pyramid plugged in but I'm not using nvidia's glasses with it at all. Don't bash what you can't setup correctly you freakin fool you have to tweak stuff like anything if you want to play around with 3d It's comical to keep seeing people reference Sony with 3d when every manufacturer and his dog is on this gravy train.... I'm telling ya nba2k11 in 3d and you'll never bad mouth the tech again!!!
