A quick article talking about how 3D is nothing to be too excited about.
It will be as big but just as much frowned upon at first.
3d is amazing and adds more immersion when experiencing a game. the nay-sayers who objects to 3d are fanboys, people who are blind to it or haters. the number one reason a person plays a video game is to be lost or totally immersed in the game theyre playing and 3d makes the process a step further towards that. let me explain this to a lot of people who dont.' XBOX 360 cant to true stereoscopic 3d'.i know some will be quick to oppose my statement but to those who have a ps3 and a xbox 360 with a 3d tv knows theres a big difference in the consoles 3d. while the ps3s 3d is amazing, the xbox 360 version of 3d requires the user to force their tv to go into 3d and looks worse than the 3d ps3 is capable of. its no wonder why this website opposes 3d. well done 3d is amazing and is like experiencing a scenery with 2 eyes as suppose to one eye open
¨3d is amazing and adds more immersion when experiencing a game.¨ Battery > immersion, thanks.
People who hate 3D are too poor to afford a 3D TV. All the mid and high end models of TV's have 3D. I bought my 50" 3D TV for 1300 euros. So far, I'm enjoying GT5, Killzone 3, WipEout HD and Super Stardust HD in 3D, looks amazing! Not to mention all the 3D movies I got! Stop hating something you can't afford!
I've been seeing in 3D my whole life and I kind of like it! I wouldn't choose to see real life in 2D, so given the opportunity, why wouldn't I want to see my games in 3D? I don't know what this cyclops's problem with it is!
I just see myself caring as much. I don't want any fandom rage. So don't be hating. I mean seriously when you think about it. Do you really care that much. As is right now with the line up of games included at launch. I just don't feel it. Its not making me giggity with anticipation. Just meh who cares.
While I agree that the 3DS's line up isn't exactly exciting so far, I remember thinking the same when the DS launched back in 2004. The only games I bought back then were Mario and Ridge Racers, and it took months before I got myself another game. The main reason I kept my DS was because of MP:H, which was supposed to launch soon after the DS, but came quite some time later in the end. I'd say that by a year from now, the 3DS should finally have gathered enough games to be worth a ourchase, but only time will tell.
Crytek has the best 3D so far based on the review I've read..
As it stands right now, having to wear glasses and leading to headaches after 10 minutes of gameplay, it's not something I'd pay to have. I have enough headaches as is. :)
Better than all viewers getting a different image, without glasses. Yeah developers will want that.
If 3D is this gen's rumble pack, then next gen it's standard and the gen after that, we all get pissed off when someone omits it.
In two gens, someone will say it is last gen; then everyone will get mad and they will have to backtrack and bring it back! Lets not fool ourselves, if you didn't have to purchase a new television for it and it was as easy as flipping a switch or enabling in a menu, we'd all be playing in 3D right now looking stupid as hell in those glasses and not caring! 3D is like HD. Every forum is lit up with people saying how much they hate it or don't care, even though it sells a ton and they don't even make HD-less televisions anymore. It will sell millions and become standard and we will wonder, who were all those jacka$$es! They are called "the very loud minority" and they are only so loud because they know they are wrong!
I think calling it "then gen's rumble pack" is giving it too much credit. Rumble has become mandatory for game consoles, and 3d... I can't see as something more than optional as it is right now. though I am interested to see how it works, I'm not wiling to invest in an idea that I'm not sure is worth it
Fair enough. I was just looking for something that might be seen as a "fad" but was not necessarily bad.
the Rumble Pac was so epic miss those days
I was watching the old school Star Fox 64 promo vid from back in the day...wow...that was the first mention of the rumble pack...made me giggle.
Rumble Pac FTW
"In all honesty, I think 3D is this generation’s “Rumble Function/Force Feedback”. When you first experience it, it’s kind of cool and you are surprised. Then after a few hours, it either becomes annoying or you find a way to ignore it." This guy must be the only person who thinks rumble is annoying. Not surprising coming from a 360 website.
Yeah, but every single gamer loved and loves the rumble pac. Not everyone likes 3D. Just go visit some movie message boards, and you will find plenty of hate for 3D. I'm not a fan of handhelds because the screens are to small and not immersive enough. But at least Nintendo went with glasses free 3D. Although the glasses free 3D still needs to be perfected, and is why every manufacturer is working on it right now.
@jim2wheels a fair point, a lot of people usually have problems with 3D over long periods and that doesn't just count for games. However let's remember you are recommended to take breaks from gaming every hour and that's even without 3D so as long as people follow the guidelines 3D shouldn't be such a big issue for gamers. I suppose that's one of the reasons why the 3DS could be successful, after all Handheld gaming isn't often intended for long haul sessions (aside from the likes of Pokemin and Dragon Quest).
I've got to say ive played 3d since the first 3d demos, ive played for up to 5 hours or more without breaks and have never had problems.
I really like the idea of playing a game in 3D, but I find it really hard to do so on my Samsung 3D tv. Played Black Ops and Killzone 3, found it hard to get used to, might be because of how fast everything is happening. Have also played Gran Turismo 5 in 3D which was a lot easier to do, but I still found myself reverting back to 2D. I do really like the new 3DS tech and not having to wear glasses, that is a major plus.
i have a samsung 3d tv also, you have to go in and adjust the settings.
I'll be honest...this writer isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. You would think he would choose something negative to compare 3D too when he's writing a negative article. Instead he chooses the rumble pack, which started the force feedback rumble on the controller which is now standard on every controller for every system and caused massive uproar when the ps3 six axis didn't have it. I mean, if I were to just see the title of this article, I would assume he was trying to say that soon all companies will have their own 3D and it will be standard for every game as early as next gen.
there are 94 games in development even the guys that did castlevania on the 360 are hard at work team ninja are making ninja gaiden ect retro and facto5 are hard at work crytek is porting crysis maybe he said its possible nintendo have super mario and kid icarus as well as lots more capcom said MVC will hit the 3ds and they said it can have lost planet if nintendo want it there is so much the 2 exclusive RE titles the MGS3 3D game that makes mgs4 look dated i think gameplay wise lots
Nintendo is the king of gimmicks.
Like inventing the d-pad, rumble pak, analogue and digital on the same controller, shoulder buttons, first party wireless support (Wavebird). You are confusing the word gimmick with innovation.
Whoever disagreed with me, explain your point please.
What a load of shit! Killzone plays just as well in 3d as it does in 2d and still looks and runs like a beast. Stop whinning, nob!
It is really not an article saying I don't like 3D. It is just talking about how 3D is NOT going to change the face of gaming forever like a lot of people are saying. It will augment our games, not drive their design. I happen to like 3D just fine, it just does not impress me into a erection-popping frenzy.
And say what you want, but there is no questioning the 3D does take away from time, resources and horsepower. That is a hard fact that cannot be disputed. Although I welcome anyone willing to prove me wrong.
More importantly it cuts into the dev's budget that could go to better weapons or a bigger map or something along those lines. 3D features are fie, but as long as the devs don't have the game suffer because they want to push new technology
