You say you want a revolution? Despite TV and console makers' best efforts, it just doesn't appear to be happening in 3-D for video game fans.
Scroll back the clock 12 months, and 3-D gaming's hype was inescapable. The PlayStation 3 had just received a free software update introducing three-dimensional special effects to popular titles such as "PAIN" and "Super Stardust HD." Promising 3-D debuts of big-name titles such as "Killzone 3," "Crysis 2" and "Mortal Kombat" were still on the horizon. The buzz behind the portable Nintendo 3DS handheld was deafening, thanks to its glasses-free approach to making visuals literally leap off the screen.
But a year later, after all the sound and fury has come and gone, you can hear the virtual crickets chirp.
