by: SoldierX Back in early 2010 the first affordable 3D TV’s started to roll out of the manufacturing line and into the retail stores. We didn’t know it at the time but the 3D movement was set up to fail from the start and so was 3D gaming.
I just don't find a better experience with 3D gaming. That's the only reason why I don't care for it.
and I think the reason is because Sony is the biggest supporter of it at the moment! if it's MS, articles about how 3D is awesome, will change gaming etc. will pop out instead from left and right. just think about it. 3D gaming is not new and nVidia 3D vision came out earlier than Sony's push for 3D with less availability of 120Hz monitors at that time to make it happen at the least but there weren't any article like this back then! so, why now? why when the 3DTVs are already everywhere and affordable that people start saying 3D gaming will fail? why just focus on 3D console gaming? there's no difference between console and pc 3D gaming! it's just that Sony is pushing it on the console side, so, let's focus all the hate there!
I said nothing about Sony. I just said I don't find that it increases my experience.
I didn't say you said Sony either. I was generally commenting on the article. I used the reply button but no, I'm not blasting you. I've said this several times in the past already but I'll say it again. 3D is mainly about perspective although there are some games mandating the use of 3D on 3DS. when talking about perspective, the experience will be different from one person to another and it's not strange if there are groups that don't want it (you maybe in this group) but don't forget about the group that appreciate it! so, the article saying 3D gaming in general is failing is actually totally neglecting the crowd that appreciate 3D as it is! a pretty dumb thing to say IMO!
its not sony its all the content providers. If every tv had 3d this wouldnt be a problem. If 3d movies were sold at reasonable prices this wouldnt be a problem. in the early stages of 3d most of the good movies were packed in with 3d glasses making movies 200-300 dollars. Amazon in all its greatness was selling avatar bluray for 170 without glasses! Few things need to happen 1 the content shouldnt cost more. 2 glasses need to be standard if its active. 3 3d needs to be normal and not an addon
People don't like it because they can't afford it. Reminds me of people that hate that tech company named after a fruit...
No, you think if Sony is pushing it as a Sony fanboy it is your job to cry "conspiracy!" even though Nintendo is pushing it just as hard. Face it, as of right now, 3D gaming HAS failed. The developers are not gravitating towards it even though there are more 3D tv's out there and the prices have fallen. May be next gen it will pickup, but I don't fault Sony for trying to lead innovation with this. It is also not lost on me that it was also an effort to use the large base of gamers to try and drive the TV business the they did with Bluray.
F-that, 3D is a plus, period! I much rather have it than not have it and i like it!
It gives me a headache.
Once next gen comes with hardware capable of 3D people will change thier minds. I think this might be one of the main benefits of next gen.
Hmmm not dead...sleeping.
lol yep. TBH 3D can never died. I mean it has existed somewhere between 50-100 years already (the concept at least). I think they made some great advancement this generation alone though. 3D display with no glasses, dual screens, available from home.
Well i cant stand 3D games and movies!For me the quality of the picture dispay in 3DHD in movie theaters dont have the same color deep has the normal digital HD picture without 3D,in 3D the picture and frame looks washed, not to mentions that it takes more or less 15 to 20 minutes until your brain and eyes get fully adapt to 3D display image.In games i really dont like it.And 3D with glasses will never stick.
I like 3D gaming! It enhances the experience IMO. Which one is more immersion though, Motion gaming or 3D gaming?
Cant they go hand in hand. Imagine Skyrim in 3D with move support. Might be pretty sweet.
I'm pretty sure Killzone 3 has both of those features! :)
Since I bought NVidia's 3D Vision, there are certain games that I simply refuse to play in 2D. Racing games, Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5, Assassin's Creed, World of Warcraft, Diablo 3... Playing them in 2D is like closing one eye.
Side scrolling games where your attention is mostly on the front layer are best looking imo, while Nintendo set a good standard for how to use 3D effectively with Super Mario 3D Land. Personally, I'd love to see a game like Muramasa ported to the 3DS so that the 6 and 7 layers of background can receive even more depth.
The 3ds really changed my mind about it. It will take off when they have 3dtv's without glasses its just plain awesome. Theres the problems with glasses free and viewing angles which will take some time to iron out but for now handhelds or pc monitors would be best for that. As it is now its not mandatory its an extra for those with the tv's and who like it much like some games last gen supported hd for those with it. Its good companies like sony and nintendo push new tech and ideas.
Its all about the money. If 3d TVs gaming etc. were cheaper then sales would sky rocket. Thats why sony is trying to push its ps3 tv. But to the average consumer its wayyyy tooo small.
My experience with 3D has been mixed. I find that in 3D movies, with the exception of "Avatar," the 3D effect adds nothing to the movie and within ten to fifteen minutes you become so accustomed to the effect that the added dimension is no longer consciously present. 3D gaming, on the other hand, appears to be far better served by 3D technology than film. One aspect to films that diminishes the 3D "presence" is that the camera focus is fixed, unlike games where the entire frame is typically in focus and rendered in 3D. This technical difference, where you can focus on anything in the game world and resolve a 3D image, makes games far more immersive than film. Playing God of War: Origins in 3D is simply incredible and really highlights the incredible work of the artists and animators. Similarly, details and environments really stand out in 3D in Drake's Fortune in a way that makes it feel so real, an effect that just can't be matched by the 2D experience.
L4D2: Fire axe + 3D, trust me.
Uncharted 3, Killzone 3, GT5, Wipeout, MotorStorm: Apocalypse, make me happy that I'm a 3D gamer and shows when done well it can be a fantastic experience. Add that to my 3D blu-ray collection and I'm a happy man. Most people who comment on 3d have not experienced it, have no interest in it or have seen it in a cinema and compare it to that.
Hey I love Uncharted 3, but is the online multiplayer in 3d too? Or just the campaign? Also does it help you gain any advantage in the mp if you use 3d (assuming it works in mp)?
I don’t know I haven’t played the multiplayer, I'm going through the trophies to platinum the game so I will have to at some point. I shall let you know.
maybe 3D failer in YOUR eyes, but I really like it.. To those who 3D is giving headaches, you have to get used to it, after some time it won't hurt again and please make some breaks.. :) It is a really great plus, especially for a handheld and no glasses! *goes to play Bit.trip saga 3DS on full 3D max :) PLEASE TRY IT, Bit.trip FTW especially Bit.trip beat on max, it pops out of screen and a really great 6 games in one cartridge :D
It really depends on the implementation. Put simply, if done well, it definitely adds to the experience. However, not all games suit 3D and if it's just tagged on in those cases it's really not welcome. For example, great implementations: Tumble ICO Killzone 3 (provided you drop the depth down a touch to reduce the shadowing) Poor implementations: Motorstorm RC (this game just doesn't suit 3D due to the nature of the aerial camera) Resistance 3 - loads of dark sections and confined spaces. Ugh.
