Does this mean future NGP's will have a new 3D capable screen that will replace the current OLED, (which could split the market and screw over early adopters)

or does it mean that down the line, we will see glasses-less stereoscopic 3D software that will work on the current OLED screen?

Well either way, I don't think it would split the market, since 3D is just a visual feature, it's not sometype of extra gameplay feature. Maybe they'll have a solution that won't need extra horsepower for 3D.

I hope they are not following Apple and releasing a new version every year. "Hey look buy 3D NGP! Yeah all you idiots that bought it last year...well those are useless! UPGRADE UPGRADE UPGRADE!"

either way I don't really care about 3D, so I will be fine.

It'd cost Sony wayyyyy to much in R&D and marketing to pull a stunt like that!

Queefy_B2459d ago

As long as it plays well online/lan i could care less about 3D.

"never say never" is basically no. They would need a new screen.

in theory OLED can do 3d but you would need glasses (correct me if I'm wrong)

VampiricDragon2459d ago

maybe but its alot worse 3ds.

@VampiricDragon

how is it worse?

CarnageXB2459d ago

I just dont see how this would work if the NGP starts with a non 3D capable screen. It wont be like the ps3. the ps3 got 3D by software allowing a 3D capable tv to show 3D ps3 content. They would have to put a whole new screen in. Maybe they're going to do that in the revised NGP in a year or two.

CNXN2459d ago

3D capable comes from tv's processor to display 2 images and so on... so in theory its plausable

house2459d ago (Edited 2459d ago )

thats the same thing i keep saying couldn't they update the ngp to be able to run 3d with glasses at the least

nevin12459d ago

So is he saying people shouldn't buy the 1st gen NGPs? lol, early adopters will get screwed again.
