Console is the "home for all things 3D"
30 in a year sounds good range of variety for people with 3D TV, at first i was quite worried about 3d support but this looks to draw me into getting a proper 3d for myself ; )
I'm glad 3D content is becoming more abundant. It was slim picking for me personally when I first upgraded.
for about 3 people to play...lol I kidd I kidd :)
If you was about to buy a TV today would you buy the one with 3D or the one without? @Below So you bought a TV without 3D? The thing is about Glasses, everyone in the room gets the same image. To a developer that is up most of importance. So we will be seeing glasses for a while. It's a shame you are now left out.
actually I did just buy a TV today, without 3D. Sony 55" LED...and I was joking above. Myself I would rather wait, don't like wearing glasses to play my games. ...or watch tv or movies
I am waiting for holographic 3D. That is gonna be truly awesome^^ But will probably invest in a 3D in a couple of years once its really cheap meanwhile :)
that depends...i dont have 20/20 vision...so its pointless to spend all that money on a 3D TV when i wouldnt even get close to the effect that the TV would give me i would buy what gives me best value, buying something with a feature that i cant enjoy would only make me sad knowing all i need is good vision in both eyes
I manage an electronic store and 90% of all next years tvs from the major manufacturers will be 3d. Hit a switch and your back to to 2d. Making a new investment, then I'd go with 3d as opposed to without.
Well I'm all for 3D and improving the viewing quality with shutter glasses. If I was bothered about putting something on my body I wouldn't wear clothes.
@zootang Actually one of the really cool things about the glasses is that everyone in the room doesn't have to see the same image. This means full screen local coop is possible. I think I read that Sony even have a patent on it. @Boon Tarkas It was only a matter of time but that's about a year earlier than I expected. The cost of adding 3D to a TV is minimal now that most TVs are 200Hz+. The cost is in the glasses and I expect those will likely be sold separately on low to mid range TVs.
@a08andan I am waiting for holographic 3D, too. In the meantime I have no choice but to wear glasses. It's not perfect, but it's pretty good.
I'm about to buy a TV but I don't think 3D is such a big deal...even less when the technology is still at the very begining with glasses-free tvs just around the corner. I don't think I'll buy a 3DTV...at least right now.
Smart move, I don't plan on getting one until I see what the new ones that don't need glasses are like. I could have got a 85inch 3D TV but I don't want to buy the glasses.
That is the way it is with all technology. I know a friend of mine who stills has a Nokia feature phone because he keeps hearing about the next big thing. Every time he goes to pull the trigger on buying a new phone he hears about some new phone releasing in the near future off of engadget or something. It doesn't look like he will ever upgrade... lol
You will always get a crappy viewing angle with the technology we have today, thats just the way light behaves. Separating images just before they enter the eyes will always yield the best results.
Glasses free is about 4 years away for a tv that works with multiple people in the room.
Is that affordable aswell, do you think? Or is that when they will first hit the market? I'll be getting a new TV either later this year or early next and I will be making sure it is 3D compatible. Not too bothered about the glasses and have always thought that the glasses free was a while off yet.
Then you haven't been reading up on it then, Toshba is said to had a tv that does 3D without glasses at the end of this year. Sony is pushing 3D and has plans to bring a 3D tv but might be in 2012.
@ Neko_Mega I've heard and read about that too but Will these TVs provide as good an effect as 3D with glasses? Will they be affordable? and Do they have a wide enough viewing angle?
The question is does the glassless tvs produce the same 3D effect? Or is it like the 3DS thats not even really 3D.
Let's worry about the online service and lag free gaming, not something no one cares about.
Just because you don't care about it doesn't mean everybody else doesn't care.
think ill be waiting on 3d tvs until they make one without glasses
After being a bit skeptical, I tried my hand at a few 3d games at the local "save and lose", and I must say, it was actually a pretty enjoyable experience, I enjoyed it so much that I'm picking up a 3d tv this weekend, whether or not 3d gaming is the future, its a feature I now accept as less than a gimmick, and more as an experience.
Yep. It's a gimmick if either: - There's not enough content to justify it; - The content is not very good and the product is just getting by because of its marketing. Sony's 3D push seems to avoid both of these points. It might not be as significant to many as HD is, but it's another layer that adds to the immersion and experience. I'm glad to own a PS3 because Sony seems to be covering all its bases. Even though I don't have a 3DTV, the option is there. Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection! ;)
Waiting for the tech to be better I bet the first guys to run out and buy HD wish they would have waited
there wont even be 30 games that launch for the 3DS this year (give or take) that number is pretty good.
Panda is comparing this to Nvidia's setup where there are 100's of games running 3D. So his comment is correct in saying "That's it?" 30 is still a good start for console 3d. Xbox360 has maybe 1 or 2 maybe?
Not tried 3d on ps3 because I don't have a 3dtv, but I currently game on pc with nvidia 3d vision and it is amazing. It supports 100's of games too
not into 3d.all i want to buy is OLED TV
Me 2 Oled screens FTW. BTW its one of the reasons why i love the NGP so much is the OLED screen
Impressive number. Sony really loves pushing 3D. The sad thing is that most TVs are not capable of 3D.
Well Sony has invested millions into the 3-D fad, they better support it. Honestly though I don't see how it can be successful, I know many people like myself are just now getting larger HDTV's. I bought a nice 52 inch LED that I absolutely love. Not only that but the couple of times I've even tried to watch a 3-D movie at the theater I got really bad headaches and I wasn't the only one. Wearing glasses to watch Television, movies or to game just isn't something I want to do on a extended basis.
i thought 3D would suck and I said I was gonna wait, then i got a good deal on a 46 in set. 3D rocks!! but it is most impresive on games made with it in mind. Black ops is good in 3D but motorstorm is GREAT. and the UC3 vid in 3D is insane. Get a 3D set, the ones with out glasses are further out then people think, i think. besides most people upgrade every 3 or 4 years anyway right?
its not the size that counts sucker. besides anyting bigger , you need 1080 or it looks like poop.
When is Glasses less 3d coming for those of us who have normal Glasses?
Whats the big deal with glasses? Do you all think you're going to be wearing the crappy ones you get at the cinema? If anything, 3DTV is better than the cinema because the glass are about 20 times better. I've seen plenty of 3D movies, but it was a display at JBHIFI that really impressed me with 3D and made me realise how much better it will be at home. And gaming, more than movies, has the ability to really put it to good use. I personally cant wait to see a Collosus in 3D. Further more, the price is awesome. I've seen deals which are about a grand cheaper than what I paid for my crappy 100htz a couple years ago, and you got a PS3 with it. How can you complain about that. Glasses dont bother me, or price, but I do want it just to settle and for the companies to decide what the standard is going to be. If glasses on is the standard for the next 5 or so years, then that will be my next TV. I just dont want to get one and have them go glasses free 6 months later.
I own a 3d tv and to tell the truth the games look like ass in 3D. They really downgrade the quality significantly for it to display properly. It's not fun. Hopefully the tech will get better. Killzone looks terrible in 3D. Tried Socom beta this morning and it doesn't look all that great either. Honestly, nothing really ever comes out of the screen anyways. it's all depth, which is cool, but it could and SHOULD be cooler.
