With a growing list of 3D enabled games at your fingertips and the cost of 3D TVs lowering, now is a good time to jump into the 3D era.
i wouldn't jump into 3D over that list i saw a big list sure but most of those games were average or below average i have been thinking about 3D allot and i just don't see myself caring too much because not many things besides a few games well a few worthwhile games support 3D TV isn't in 3D and home movies are barely in 3D so i can't really see myself buying a 3D TV just to play a few games in 3D
i actually saw transformers 3 in 3D and i was actually REALLY disappointed 3D so wasn't worth the extra 6 dollars
I also can't justify a 3DTV due to lack of content, thats why I went with a 3D monitor for my PC games.
I love 3D gaming and think the more people that actually try it in their homes (rather than hating without trying, or playing in a store/game event) will appreciate what the added perspective brings to gaming. The Uncharted 3 trailers in 3D look amazing and I suspect Batman Arkham City and others will look equally as great. Movies are a different matter, gaming is where it's at in my view.
3d is here to stay, and once there are more 3d owner's it will be succesfull to add it on
sony themselves are pushing 3d hard ...which should help 3ds in a big way soon..
that doesn't make much sense.
3d died before, so will this rehash I think. It makes sense for movie theaters, giving people added incentive to watch on big screen as well as deterring bootlegs. i would rather watch 2d but that's just me. I do not think it is worth it (and probably horrible for your eyesight) to be putting that kind of time into a 3d video game. its also not as popular as people assume. Its avatars fault, it was a huge blockbuster film from one of the highest grossing film makers ever and huge budget with crazy special effects, and corporations think 3d is the only thing that sold it.
its a nice option an option I will pass on for now?
http://www.nvidia.co.uk/obj... Over 500 games!!! 3D Vision rating = games work perfectly. Excellent rating = games work perfectly but not 3D Vision certified. Good rating = games work with some issues (most cases can be amended). Fair and Not Recommended rating = would not used 3D Vision, to many issues usually. 471 Games are rated within 3D Vision Ready, Excellent and Good. The rest are Fair (Which I would not recommend).
Yup 3D id gonna force its self on people...im buying that new sony 3dtv bundle
Nvidia rating games for their own product, is that fair? Should be an independent source surely?
Nvidia test the games and tell you how compatible the game is with 3D, if a game is not rated good they tell you which graphics settings to change to make it look better. E.G They advise to turn of the film grain effect in Left 4 Dead because it renders in 2D and ruins the effect. Who better to tell you how compatible a game is with Nvidia 3d than Nvidia?
Looking forward to playing Uncharted 3 in 3D, that's the big game for me, and the seller of the tech to me combined with 3D Blu's. More 3D games are nice though!
I'm not calling 3d games with a 1024*640 resolution and a 20fps framerate games from the 3d era. It's a good start, but not so impressive and not worth the expense. (And before somebody asks me, i tried something like fifteen games on ps3).
Until 3DTV capable sets and glasses become affordable for the masses, 3D gaming and TV will not take off as they hope for. As of now, there is not that much content for 3DTV for viewing entertainment. 3D gaming for consoles (not PC) is also limited as of now. 3D gaming will take off IMO next generation when these consoles can actually do it properly
Actually 3DTVs & Monitors are selling surprisingly well because there are enough early adopters that are willing to shell out the extra cash in order to play games in 3D on their preferred gaming platform & or gaming platforms of choice!
The biggest barrier right now for 3D gaming are the glasses. They are still insanely expensive. 3D gaming won't become mainstream until those costs go down and 3D TV content is more readily available. There is so little watchable 3D content right now it's only the early adopters buying these sets and glasses. http://www.storyguide.net/a... http://www.3dtvwatcher.co.u... http://www.3dfocus.co.uk/3d... http://connectedplanetonlin... http://good3dtv.com/3d-tv/3... I have no idea where you are getting your data or figures from stating 3DTV's are selling well. They are not...as of now... However as time passes they will sell in greater numbers as some analysts predict. However as of now in MOST markets 3DTV's are selling slow with maybe the exception of Germany and some others.
Only when the price is right on the right size TV will I buy a 3DTV. I waited for the HDTV to drop their prices before I purchased one. I can wait again for a 3DTV.
3-D is and always has been a gimmick. It's not just a Sony thing or anything like that, I hate every movie it's been in, they seem to slap 3-D on sub par movies and games and expect people to treat them like Avatar. Avatar was a one time thing to me, something that took 5+ years to get right, I actually go out of my way to avoid the 3-D theater.
I don't like 3D theater. But I have seen better 3D on those new LED tvs. My only complaint is that the shades make it a bit darker.
3d is a gimmick on CONSOLES as they can't handle it properly. the 3d used on consoles is not true stereoscopic 3d except in black ops and GT5. true stero 3d cuts framerate in half because each frame has to be rendered twice. but fake 3d is always MUCH MUCH cheaper and doesn't look much different from the 2d versions just that you'll need 3d glasses to view the image correctly. play metro 2033 pc maxed out 1080p in 3d and compare it to ps3 and 360 3d games and you'll understand that your consoles are truly pathetic and outdated 3d is sonys kinect. they are pushing the gimmick way too hard
That is great and all, but my 1600 euro tv isn't even 2 years old. I won't be getting a 3D tv until this one burns out.
Once 3d becomes glassesless i dont see it catching on to the masses. Pricing is comming down on 3d however prices will shot up even hiegher than before once it becomes 3d without glasses. So by my guess with prices rising & falling & no glasses needed its gonna be at least 6+ years before people start buying 3d. The one thing 3d tv's have as a positive is so many people have LCD tv's that just wont last as long as the old tube tv's so people are going to constantly be in the market for new tv's at least imo
To the people complaining about the cost of 3D gaming your just going to have to either deal with it right now & or wait for a price drop to happen or shell out the extra cash now if you want to play your games in 3D on your preferred gaming platform & or gaming platforms of choice or not play the games in 3D at all.
