Msxbox-world explores the pros and the cons of 3D, and whether you should jump in now or hold off.
With the sony PS 3D tv i would say yeah.
No thanks, I can find better deals for that money actually and I would rather have a proper Sony than a substitute for the real deal. But just have to ask, what in the living hell do they mean by is it worth jumping into 3d, because as far as I remember, we haven't been 2D since mega-drive II. It would make sense if the 3D in tv's was 3D, but its only a deception of the human brain so the term technically is being used over something that IS actually 3D, even if viewed over a 2D plane Rant end lol
Even if you never use the 3d in the new tvs those tvs with online, 240hz, full array leds blows regular hdtv away in 2d performance also. @limewax Real life may be in a 3 dimensional space but it's our eyes and brains that process what we see as 3d. Close one of your eyes and walk around for an entire day and tell me how 3d your world is. Hell if you were color blind (many are) you would still be stuck in black and white tv days.
The only color blind people I have ever met only see colors as the wrong colors? Not disputing what you said just genuinely wasn't aware there was a form of color blind that can cause that And I agree about the top statement you made, Personally I am more hyped for OLED than 3D.
Gotta start sometime...otherwise it won't advance
It's the only way it'll improve. Although i'd rather see more augmented reality.
Definitely yes if you can afford it.
3d is a gimmick good thing sony is working on VR cause that would truly be the next step....not this oh you need this to see the depth width and height, when we can already see this to begin with.....thanks but i dont need glasses for that
As you mentioned VR is the next step, meaning we will need 3D before we can get to VR. Looking through glasses into a flat world wouldn't be much fun. Better the 3D = better the VR.
do you know what there even trying to do with vr? there trying to get it so its like in all the shows and what not where you are actually placed in the world they create hence the name VIRTUAL REALITY not 2d space you see through glasses you sir are a fail troll, how is 3d better when WE ALREADY SEE IN 3 DIMENSIONS......or did you like 95% of people apparently not pay attention in school at all
Calm down and think for a second, yes you can see 3D and beyond but only in real life. We are talking about games/shows/movies. Those you do not see in 3D unless you have a 3D compatible TV. Virtual Reality will not be wires going directly into your brain, you will still need glasses to view it and those glasses will have flat lenses. (just like a TV screen) Yes, software can run through it to show what you see and even detect your movements much like a button on a keyboard can move a bald space marine around a spacecraft but it'll still look flat. You need 3D to enhance the objects.
@BitbyDeath Well done on responding to an overly aggressive comment with a calm, patient answer, a rarity on this site. Also I agree with everything you said.
@inbetweener - Thankyou kind Sir. If only everyone here thought the same way you and I do.
I can wait.. Most games can't even run at full 1080p, why don't we get there first...
we weren't ready to jump in HD in 2005-06 but who cares . I think we are ready for 3D ( I'm buying my first Handled 3DS :D )
hey I saw that comment back in 93 we don't need 3d games. Till you play a game in 3D you don't know what you're missing.
Only for 3DS, it is.
I have a 120Hz 3D 1080p PC monitor... but no glasses ;D (I'm waiting for them to get dirty cheap). Meanwhile I get a nice 120Hz refresh rate in my fps's and other fast reaction games.
I jumped in and haven't looked back since. Adds a whole lot to gaming.
its technology people will make the transition which can only speak well for the 3ds and goodbye to vita
