Sony dominates 3D gaming with multi-platform games offering 3D exclusivity to the PS3. It looks like Sony is dominating the 3D gaming arena but why?
but it will become the standard sooner or later. It's just the natural evolution of technology. After 3D will be hologram. But that's still very far off in the future.
once 3D tvs become affordable then it will kick off
"After 3D will be hologram. But that's still very far off in the future" love the way you say that with such certainty but hey you could be right
3D IS AFFORDABLE! Have an HD/3D projector and 3D converter box came to £650.00. Thats less than I spent on my last tv. It's only 720p but the ps3 can only output 3d bluray at 720p. Games are pretty immersive at 120". Jumps of buildings turn your stomach, horror games actually make you scream....had to play Dead Space on a normal tv. Play a 3D game and it's better still. Things come out feet from the wall and extend for miles. Way better than 3d tv. Quite happy to stick with it till the adoption rates drive the price of 1080p projectors down.
You could buy a 50 inch Panasonic 3DTV for just $1300 these days! That's $600 less than what I spent on my 52 inch HDTV just a year ago!
Your right but still, hdtvs are the goal right now
and Sony are leading the charge. Even if Wii 2 has 3D enabled software, Sony's lead will be so great that it won't matter.
sony advertises their 3d products better so developers will put in the extra effort to get the extra advertising. sony has a big return on advertising 3d, microsoft doesnt
3D? No thank you. I don't like how you have to wear glasses that make everything darker. I like my screen vibrant with color.
This will all change in the future though. Look at the 3DS. SF4 looks awesome on it. Movies i can tolerate looking at through glasses though because they are only about an hour or two long. When i game i play fro more than that. lol
You really don't notice it after a while. Depends how into the game you are
Sony always does this. they use other products to sell other products. it's simple economics.
Xbox does 3d too.. I'm having a blast since rebuying black ops playing it in 3d. However you can tell the 3d hasn't been optimised for the 360 as pressing the guide button demonstrates. Still sony clearly are leading the way for 3d which is one of many reasons why I can't wait to finally get my ps3 this or next month. Also after doubting 3d gaming I really do think it works. I only played crysis 2 demo previously and the 3d looked pretty shabby but Black ops it's pretty good and adds a lot more to it. I put an emblem on one of the guns (can't remember which) which shown at the back of it.. whenever the gun fired the recoil made it look like the emblem was coming out of the tv.. it was very impressive!
C2 and blck ops have gimped 3D...Try MS apocalypse and killzone 3.
Socom 4 has nice 3D too.
think 3d is pretty weak, for me it adds nothing to the game I have a 3d tv and the whole set up...rarely ever toggle 3d on
Then why would you pay the extra money for a 3d tv if your not interested in 3d?
few quality TV's come without the 3d option anymore I got a good price on a quality tv and it had 3d capabilities
Yeah i play 3d on pc abit was fun at first then kinda want to just play without the tumor.
its not a tumor!
Well they are kind of leading that charge with 3DTV's, so it only makes sense their console will take the same route. Not to mention being able to advertise PS3, 3D Games and Sony 3DTV's all in one must be a plus. It's funny because I actually plan on buying a 3DTV in the next month or so even tho I vowed I wouldn't for at least a year or two. I really want to watch Tron: Legacy on it tho, and I'm stoked for using it with Uncharted 3.
Get a projector instead!
fud article Cryis 2 can be played in 3D on 360,Black Ops too and tons of other games.
"Sony Owns 3D Gaming on Consoles" Great... for the 50 persons that own 3D TV's
I Job in Audio/Video Sector: the TV 3D sales Wolrdwide is ca. 12 Milions for March 2011....
Did you know the amount of gamers who play in HD is infact in a MINORITY, I guess based on that we should stop suppporting 1080p and 720p. Your with me? Cool.
In Italy have Great Offer for 3D TV: Samsung 40" 3D 900$ PLASMA Panasonic 3D 600Hz 46" 950$ and Samsung Plasma 3D 50" + PS3 160GB + GT5 + Pack Shrek (5 Glasses 3D and 4 Movie 3d Shrek) 1.600$!!! The price is very low coming next Months
I hope it is always an optional extra. I've spent my life playing games and watching films happily without headaches and with my regular glasses on (1 pair of glasses is too much). And for me, 3D is still absolutely a gimmick- give me any 2D classic film or game over some 3D shit heap.
It's like Nvidia dominating 3D on PC, they do the same on the PS3. AMD supports 3D, but the manufacturer for 120hz monitors don't support AMD.
I think because Microsoft has been trying to play down 3D for sometime, they would look like hypocrites if they suddenly started saying it's the next best thing. It's similar to their decision to stay with DVD and endorse HDDVD. Microsoft is not good at predicting the future on the electronics component side, which to be fair makes sense because they are first and foremost a software company. Microsoft takes fewer chances and goes with proven tech ( not counting Kinect and HDDVD). Also, Blu-Ray allows more space. The less talented companies don't or can't figure out compression techniques to make it work on DVD. Is it possible, sure that's been proven, but it's easier when you have more space to play with.
3D is ok but not a Must Take step for gaming , All im looking forwards to is increased hardware performance.
Stereoscopic 3D has been around for many years, it was niche back then and it will remain niche in its current state. (Although recently has been the biggest push of the technology). It appeals to some audience's tastes, but not others. If it was a logical visual upgrade it would become more mainstream, some see it as such, but others do not. Mainstream still finds it a gimicky approach and either is not comfortable or offers less realsim, the adopters of 3d find it more immersive. This is what has and is holding 3d back.
I'm happy for Sony. It's a shame that only a few people have a 3D tv to see it, so that renders that fact useless, at least for now.
PS3 has a technical advantage over the 360. It outputs frame-packed signals that the 3DTV automatically detects as 3D. The 360 does not, so the TV has no way of knowing when it's receiving 3D, and you have to go into the TV menu and enable and disable 3D mode every time you start and stop playing a 3D 360 game.
