It looks like 3D is here to stay but, according to a recent survey, gamers don's seem too keen to have it injected into their hobby of choice.
It's because it requires the purchase of a new TV. Having played 3D at my friend's house, I have to say it can be pretty awesome at times and I'd love to have it, but not for another $2000. I'm tempted to get the Sony E3 bundle next month though.
There is still gamers that don't need HD (Wii) I like to have the option.
I will take it, if it is standard in TVs at no additional cost. Otherwise, I might be inclined to pass. At the current prices, forget it! @buddymagoo I agree, I always like options as well as competition!
They're comming out with monitors now that support hdmi 1.4a :)
Another uninformed dude talking out his ass. You can get a 3d tv for well under $1000 now bro. just do a quick google search. Gamingdroid They are pretty in tvs atno extra cost now. Regular hdtvs use to cost more than what you can get a 3d hdtv 240 hz for these days. Like I said already I would put some links here but all you need to do is a 5 seconds google search to see the prices are way down now.
Playr2 recently conducted a survey questioning 1,001 gamers, posing questions related to the future of 3D in gaming. When asked if they would welcome the introduction of 3D technology into future console releases, 51 percent of respondents answered "no." Only 47 percent said they would like to see 3D in next gen consoles while two percent were unsure. So almost 50/50 means gamers don't want 3d? troll site. and only a sample of 1001? LOL Epic fail survey. This title is misleading.
Exactly, 50/50 (with biased fanboys associating 3D/Sony and others frustrated because they don't have a 3D TV) can't be transformed in "gamers don't want 3D", it's just stupid.
We should be thankful that with 3D it won't dumb down games as much as motion control
Yes, because the majority can't use 3D while the majority can play motion control.
.... .... But I wasn't talking about who can use it and who can't, where did you get that from All I was trying to say is we should be lucky that we won't get developers like Rare for example turning into crappy shovelware stuidos to focus on motion control. It's not like that's going to happen with 3D.
@gamingdroid But for killzone it allowed for co-op.
"We should be thankful that with 3D it won't dumb down games as much as motion control" Oh really? Play Killzone 3 with Sharphooter. Let me know if it was harder or easier :)
Oh I didn't mean adding it on to hardcore games which already are good, just studios that, for example, Microsoft would rather open then ones which would focus on core games. It's not like companies are going to open 3D studios like they've done with motion control focused studios are they Let's face it when the Nintendo Wii came out with motion control it changed the gaming industry, started this whole casual/hardcore thing and made gaming so mainstream.....all thanks to motion controls.
The Move is a bigger fail than the 3DS.
Only in your disturbed fanboy's mind.. it's a great success, sales first, but more than that for motion control, because accuracy is the key.
The 3D on the 3DS burned the fucking shit out of my eyes.
It took me a whole minute to start getting nauseous on the 3DS literally. Even in the theaters, I start feeling my eyes are tired after the show. It's definitely one of those, low use and be cautious for me.
You don't sound as happy as I would be if I had sh!t in my eye and somebody removed it
I saw that coming a mile away. Oh wait, i didnt, because the piece of crap burned my eyes out too. -(
I had no problem with the 3D effect on the 3DS. I can play for the entire battery charge with 3D of max without any negative effects.
Yeah why not? I dont have 3d now, but in 5 or 10 years I might. Might as well have the choice. I guess I'm pro-3D.
I think if you were to be playing in 3D all the time it would F*** your eyes up completely. I'm happy with high resolution graphics, and personally I think game makers should just try concentrating on making games in 1080p first. Most games aren't even made at 720p natively as it is.
well i think 3d is the future it just got big too late in the generation but by the next gen time it will be standard for all games and all gamers will like it
I think 3D gets in the way of the gaming experience. I play my 3DS with the 3D on for like 5 mins then I put it off because it makes the game look too bumpy.
I want 3D, I just can't afford it.
This is why I haven't gotten one yet. I love the 3D on 3D tvs but I have a 46" Bravia already. I can't justify buying another tv for like 2 grand.
You have a point if satisfied with your current set, but it doesnt cost 2 grand . People need to stop repeating that religiously . It hasnt cost that much for a long long time , excep for people who wanna waste money as usual on tv set that cost a lot for very little valid reasons . Wich 3d hardly invented .
I don't know where you people live, but I got an HX8 46 inch for 920 taxes in /w transmitter. glasses where an additional $120 (for two) fot the new rechargeable sony ones, forgot the model code, too lazy to google. so all together $1040.
I can tell you the 3D on 3DS isn't even close to the one on the TVs even old games like God of war PSP collection looks new and fresh specifically the burning buildings with all the smoke and ash flying at you. Don't judge 3D by the horrible job Nintendo did try the real deal on a TV.
I love my 3D tv, I don't care what this survey says because I want it.
I will make my own decision when I buy my first 3D TV this Xmas. Been saving money for this for 6 months. I actually looking forward to play PS3 in 3D. I wish Ace Combat Assault Horizon got a 3D option.
I too dont want 3D ..... For now. In the future when it starts to gain a larger audience, then i will be more interested in it
I just bought a 51 inch Samsung 3-D, 1080p plasma television for $899 and it has one of the best pictures of any tv I have ever seen and it came with 2 sets of shutter glasses free. The televisions don't need to cost $2000 to get a great 3-D set. It happened to come at a time that my 50 inch DLP was seeing problems so I needed to purchase a new set anyways.
I love 3D In games, and the future will be even better!
i cant wait to get a 3d tv and i wonder when the next gen of tvs are going to hit, well i heard that companys are going to come out with 4320P as the resolution but it wont be for a while does anybody know if this is true? am happy with 1080p tvs, i love mine but wish it was 3d, i really want to get one but want one thats bigger than mine which is 60" i want like a 70"+ but they are so expensive but am saving my money.
From what I understand the next step is 2160p but the return over 1080p is very, very little on a tv 55 or under. And even on a 60 inch tv you are going to have to sit very close to notice anything.
I don't think 3d really adds something extra and often requires sacrifices. For example, lots of 3ds games look worse with the 3d turned on. Not to mention you have to get new, more expensive TVs.
The games already look sub-hd/low res and have too many jaggies on console without 3d, then when you add it in the visuals just degrade further! The only place 3d looks good is on pc, and there are way more games (over 500) available in 3d and it does not downgrade the visuals but the glasses are far too annoying!
I know I don't want it. Personally I think 3D this gen has been for the most part a gimmick to get people who have perfectly fine HDTVs to buy new TVs. Or in the video game market, to get people to re-buy games they already brought.
Make the glasses cheap and the TV's accessible to the masses, and 3D will take off next geeration. As of now it's hard to convince consumers to go out and buy another $1000+ HDTV+ $100+ Glasses just to play 3D games. Good luck with that.
