Rare! Sony! BioWare! 343!
3D will most likely become a Fad if the Technology has too much limitations. And, if it does,it will simply disappear from the market until the technology improves in the future to be reintroduced again.
As much as some people would like it to be a fad, 3D is here to stay and in a few years time all TVs will have built in 3D functionality (just like all TVs have built in mpeg4 decoder nowadays and few years ago it was only some models). It will simply be a feature that will be sold by default. And if you remember, there were attempts to introduce 3D in the past (e.g. virtual boy) and it has disappeared from the market once already. The reintroduction that you are talking about is happening right now.
I will agree to a point, but not entirely.That said, I definitely agree that 3D is being reintroduction right now. However,I just think that the refresh rate from most 3D peripheral isn't enough for 3D viewing right now simply because it too costly.But, that doesn't mean that the manufacture won't be tempted to come out with the technology anyways.Now, At 120Hz/240Hz is Dam good for simple plain TV viewing. Although, I know that the eyes can't see beyond 120Hz according to some experts. But, the issues is here is that there's not enough 3D content to support a market that has some wondering if there ever going to be anything close to Avatar. Truth is, that is what jump stated the 3D market in the first place; simply because it made a amazing first impression that never seem to fade away in the hearts of many.As for myself, as well as everyone that i know have not seen anything better than Avatar which to me is a shame. My point is, hardware is nothing with out enough content. Nuff said.
Fad, like it always has been throughout history. It comes and goes, slightly upgraded and then goes away again. It was honestly an attempt at being a stopgap this console generation. I don't think many people were taken in by it though. Honestly for me, wearing glasses just seems like a burden and the whole headache issue as well. I just don't enjoy 3-D.
But you can't wait to play Halo in 3D, can you? smh.
Fad. It's just not ready for prime time yet.
Well it's both, d'uh. Right now I'm calling it a fad, although in say 5 - 10 years when technology gets to the point where those retarded glasses aren't necessary, the price of the tech comes down to something palatable for normal humans, and the major TV broadcasters are using it THEN it won't be a fad. But that's the future.
The day its glasses free then people will start to take it serisouly, to many people have bad eyes & are not gonig to put in there contacts so they can put on glasses, & since glasses over glasses is a no go its not gonna work. As for the people without bad eyes no one wants to wear glasses to watch tv. If they made the technology with no glasses it would have a chance, but until that day this is all just a fad!
