Microsoft and several developers such as Bethesda seeming lack of interest in 3D might be founded as Sony fumbles around the potential 3D marketplace with its forthcoming entry level 3D TV bundle.
This is a silly move by Sony and I agree they should do an Uncharted 3 Bundle as well. Shame. Many gamers own Xbox and PS3 so it's fair enough in my view that msxbox-world writes news about 3D which is not unique to PS3 after all. As far as I'm aware the TV will work with Xbox as well.
Its somewhat logical; a T racing game is an easier sell to parents than an M rated shooter. Problem is, this bundle isn't really targeted towards parents, but more towards gamers. If this included Uncharted 3 it would probably be flying off shelves.
Not to mention Motorstorm:A is so far the best showcase of 3d I've seen. Obviously alot of people here haven't played it in 3d. The game is awesome.
3D is underestimated by people who haven't seen it in action. 3D + Gaming = the way forward. More immersion more visceral for the sake of a small sacrifice of putting glasses on. Sunglasses never bothered me and gave me a better experience at the beach.
I lvoe how a bunch of unemployed bloggers with no education think they know better about marketing strategy than people who have been doing this for years. Of course you don't want to put a flagship game in a bundle giving it away for free, unless its a console that's geared towards it like the or MGS 4 bundle. Resistance has a lot to prove given the hype and the myriad of other shooters out there, Sony wants to know if the series still has legs, so of course they're not going to give it away for free.
It didn't stop you from acting like you know it all.
Bundle it with R3 and Motorstorm:A
IS 3D actually that good guys? Im scared I cant see it properly. I heard quite a few people cant. It looks so simmilar
I think there should be multiple game bundles, not just 1 because it's immediately limiting itself. People who already have MotorStorm:A won't want it again, so having a R3, UC3 and other 3D games bundles would be much better IMO. My problem is that I wear glasses too and I haven't seen anything in 3D at all yet and, while this monitor is looking at me with puppy dog eyes, I don't want to buy it and then find out that I won't be able to even see it properly.
3D is only as good as the stereographer working on it.
Livin_in_a_box, I wear glasses, pretty bad in the left eye, I've tried the 2 different cinema 3D's with no issues, apart from the weight of the glasses. Have yet to try any of the TV's though.
Lol, msxbox-world should change their name to pssony-world. This is like the 6th article discussing Sony or the Ps3 with no 360 news from them recently. Edit: @ Drekken Oh, so you do get Resistance 3 if you preorder the bundle. I see. Edit2: I'm just buying the TV instead of the bundle. Need a HDTV anyway, 3D is a plus (Movies like The Ring that's supposedly releasing a blu ray in 3D).
A stupid move, yes; I agree. Bait and Switch. Pumping up the sales of a poorer 1st party IP. Whatever you want to cal it, it's a bad decision.
You've clearly never played Motorstorm Apocalypse. You'll eat your words when you see it in 3D.
Yeah, I'm NO fan of 3D gaming right now(couldn't be if I wanted as wearing glasses of any kind gives me a headache after about ten minutes)I have to admit that Motorstorm, which I saw pre release at a Sony showcase,is AMAZING in 3D and definitely the best game I can think of for Sony to use to show off the promise opf the idea.Don't see this as any kind of mistake and, also, Resistance3 is a much less family friendly game anyhow. Where's the big mistake here? It's just Sony using the best looking 3D game they have(or the best use of the effect)AND it has the pro of being playable by more members of a family. 3D may be struggling, IDK for sure as the tech's too dear and with many, like myself though for differing reasons(cost, the look, family size making it daft expensive with so many pairs of glasses and kids losing and breaking them etc)hoping and waiting for glasses free 3D at a cheaper price I understand why adoption may be slow right now but THIS is neither a sign or a cause of these things.
@ mastiff It depends on the 3D that you are watching. If it's 3D at an amusement park attraction it isn't really meant to be viewed longer than the attraction you are on. That kind of 3D would give you a splitting headache after 20 minutes because your eyes are literally crossing constantly due to the stereo space shifting. Theatrical and gaming 3D is different. It's much subtler and meant to be viewed for longer amounts of time.
if this was 799-899 and tv size was over 30inches but sony should bundle this with a game how about the new ratchet and clank game?
u can always take the resistance3 game and go exchange it for the ratchet and clank game.
N4G is wack. They remove some of the stupidest comments ever. I bet the MODs are fanboys so when they don't like something said about their console they remove it. Then de-bubble the person who said it. F this site. F**k Bubbles.
Its a PS3 fanboy site, what else do you expect from it. >_>
@Zynga: why so butthurt dude? LOL
@ rjdofu Maybe he sat on a PS3?
Are you Kidding only a handful of games I repeat hand Full of games push the level of graphics . Motorstorm 3 does as well as 3d and MLAA and Ingame custom soundtrack , this bundle is heaven!!! What this articles gripes about is getting free SHISSHT! Typical fat lazy gamer , retard baby gaming loser, Free Free Free. Go work, get your own apartment , get a girl and a life, then lets talk about free. Ill take a game like motor storm over this(supposed lowdef) Resistance 3 anytime...
i love N4G. i also love all the people who commented on this article. whether u are a pc/ps3/wii/xbox fanboy .. u guys give me a good laugh. bubbles to all of u :D
Same here, some people just say the most idiotic things ever. They defend pc/ps3/wii/360 like if its they only thing they live for. They will defend a certain game series (ex. elder scrolls,cod,bf) like a young pussy whipped teenager.
Someone is lying... http://n4g.com/news/818955/... Who is it?
Did you actually read that article?
Keep hitting disagree... someone deleted the article and reposted it: http://n4g.com/news/818955/... Its a preorder bonus, but still comes with the TV. Push disagree... no one cares.
If I were buying this, it'd be for the $500 TV, not the $60 game.
Depends, i was buying the game and the TV. Now i couldnt care less for that game, Effectively raising the price by 60$. Oddly enough i'm broke right now, and that settles the fact that i wont buy it, possible even skipping on 3D at all for the next year or so. Seems radical, but it does a hell of a difference
- Buy bundle - Sell MotorStorm - Find Resistance 3 sale It's only a $60 difference if you keep MotorStorm, which makes no sense considering you don't care for it, and you don't shop around for R3, which would be pretty dumb if you're broke. Considering R3 will likely be out a month or two before the TV, and it's competing with MW3 and Battlefield 3, finding it for substantially less than $60 shouldn't be hard.
That is exactly what made the deal so compelling, nothing taken away from Resistance. These guys must be STUPID to think this isn't a great deal. Two years ago I was up at 3:00 AM after Thanksgiving to buy a 24 inch LCD for the kitchen that cost me $300. I'm taking advantage of this deal, and I'm not a bit interested in Resistance.
It's just a rumor from an image. That same image was also shown at E3 along side the R3 bundles. IDGITS
never going to be interested in 3d anything give headaches and strains eyes
I was planning to get one a while ago but honestly after trying one out I don't have any desire for a 3d TV.
cant play 3d games for very long so whats the point 3d movies are cool but not worth to buy a 3d tv i dont think this 3d tech will last very long
What I wonder about is, are you guys willing to pay the extra money and/or potentially reduction in screen size for 3D? I mean, just today I saw a 37" TV for $300, and frequently do I see 40" Sony/Samsung for $400. Yet these 3D TVs from Sony and more recently Viewsonic are 23-24" and cost $500. Not only are they more expensive, but they are significantly smaller! Where you guys looking at bigger TVs? what goes through a customers mind?
I agree with ya'll, and to be honest it sucks. I think the 3D thing is cool. Some of the effects are outstanding, I just can't take it. I get headaches as well, and the thing I hate most is how long it takes for my vision to readjust and feel normal again when I’m done watching it. I really hate that, because it makes me feel like it's damaging my eyes (I’m not saying it does, it just makes me feel like it does). I do envy the people who can watch it with no problems. I wish I could, because it is a cool tech.
the only thing cool bout this tv is the multiplayer. cant wait to see more tech like this in the future
It doesn't strain my eyes but I just don't have any desire for it.
Another stealth doom article from msxbox.... makes me lol
It is some funny stuff.
[email protected] doom these people are trolls...
the only 3D game I played I found playable and better in 3D is Crysis 2! Killzone 2, Uncharted 3, Call of Duty Black Ops...etc all sucked in 3D, horrible reslution.
Crysis 2 was horrid in 3D... and it used Black Ops styled 3D rendering tech. It wasn't even up to par with Socom's 3D.....
Ah, KZ2 did not have 3D, but KZ3 did. Also, unless you have a time machine you have not played UC3 in 3D because it's not out yet.
I mean KZ3 ( sue me) and I played uncharted 3 beta which supported 3D
@ militant07 oh the U3 beta didn't have the 3D quite right?...who woulda thought considering the game released in oh I don't know...November?
I hope everyone agree/disagree or comment on my comment have 3DTV and played the game I listed in 3D.
I have played Crysis 2 in 3D and it was awesome, I do not own a 3d set but a friend of mine does. You can't base opinion off of an unfinished Beta, wait for the final product before you comment next time. I also have to laugh at the disagrees on my comment. I state facts based on reality and people disagree, N4G's comment system is a joke and needs to make people state why they disagree or agree.
When did you ever play a game where the final version had a noticable difference in graphics?
I just don't get this move at all. Especially since they already announced the R3 bundle at E3! This tells one one of three things... 1) Sony feels R3 is going to be a let down. 2) Sony is desperate to put this bundle out now and doesn't want to wait for the release of R3 or 3) Maybe R3 in 3D really isn't that great and Sony feels Motorstorm shows off the 3D better? Anyway you slice it though...its an awfully odd move for them to make at this stage in the game if they really are switching out the bundle.
Ok ...mr. disagree. No R3 is a pre-order bonus for the TV...which is all fine and dandy...but i dont see this TV getting "pre-ordered" all that much. Not many people these days "pre-order" a TV.
and now quietly back away from that, that is just lame. hey why not put in there two bundles. Sony SUCKS at making bundles, while MS makes the best bundles with the upcoming Gears bundle being the prime example of sick packages
Actually, Epic made that bundle, not Microsoft. And, look at the R3 Survival Edition. It's actually a pretty nice pre-order bundle, just limited to Europe unfortunately.
Motorstorm as mentioned is able to reach a broader audience of parents and gamers due to the nature of the included game with the 3D bundle. I've no doubt Sony will do further bundles anyway, with the likes of Uncharted 3 and possibly still Resistance 3 as well. We've seen a great variety of bundles with their consoles over the years.
or maybe you could look at it in other ways as well. 1)R3 is getting positive previews from every major site and is bound to sell so why not bundle a game that was affected by the japan earthquake and did not sell the units it was supposed to sell or maybe it is better in 3d. 2) Maybe the 3d display will not be ready until November 26 if the date listed by Gamestop is true and people will end up buying r3 before that. there is more of a probability that people will have R3 than motor storm by November. Easier to market a racing game to everyone than a shooter. Plus gamestop has listed that you get R3 for free if you pre order the bundle but the game will ship with the order so people that want to get it with resistance still have a chance. You see things can be sliced in positive ways too.
Is it just me or does this entire comment section lack any proper grammar? Anyone, I could never see myself buying a 3D TV anytime soon, even with the bundle, as I really don't think the technology is a great as it can be yet.
proper grammar? proper grammar will get you bitch slapped,,,,,,dork
Isn't this the webiste that just yesterday trashed the 3DS based on false information? And isn't this the website that always posts untrue crap about PS3, Wii and PSP? Funny, the site is called msxbox yet they talk more about every other console expect Xbox 360. This is obviously a troll site, and should be banned from N4G.
The site is currently named "msxbox-world" but they are changing the name of the site Also there are plenty of troll sites whos opinions are posted on this site on a day to day basis should they also be banned? OT: Im not a fan of 3D, hell I still got a bigback TV in my bedroom I aint getting a HD till that bad boy breaks on me. Also with the announcement of 4D movies, etc does that make 3D slightly outdated seeing as everything will probably be 4D 2012.
Last time I checked 4D wasn't possible so I doubt it ;)
"msxbox-world.com" huh? Try calling M$ and ask them where the exclusives are. Stop commenting on Sony related subjects. I cannot respect your website until the latter.
I called and they told me that Gears of War 3, Forza 4; Halo:CE Anniversary; Toy soldiers: Cold War; Insanely Twisted shadow Planet, Dust, Crimson Alliance, Witcher 2, and Halo 4 are here or coming soon; also there are about twenty other kenect exclusives coming soon they also send their best regards to the troll. OP: o my god an article that slightly critizises the all mighty Sony. O no its a conspiracy!!!!!!!! quick lets all say that sony is the best to calm the religious Sony fanatic freaks in N4G.
lmao kinect exclusives, you can do better than that
Some of the comments on this article make me sad to be a gamer :(.
lol like you're REALLY one to talk.....
Really? I constantly hate on a website for doing there job? Or are you saying im a one sided fanboy?
