Gaming Nexus CES 2009: NVIDIA

Gaming Nexus writes: "Even though I've been to CES four times in the past, I've never met with NVIDIA before. All my meetings with them were at E3 so it was nice to be able to reconnect with the green folks here in Las Vegas.

Let me say that the most impressive thing I've seen as a gamer at this year's CES comes from NVIDIA. At their booth and at a satellite both, they were touting their GeForce 3D Vision kit. The video presentation I was treated to had demos from movies to games. Seeing the beginning of Star Wars Episode IV with the star destroyer shooting at the rebel ship and C3PO and R2D2 roaming the halls in 3D looked amazing. It even made the beginning chase scene with the vehicles in Episode II exciting, that is until Hayden delivered some of the corny dialogue in the movie. After a few more scenes, I was treated to some game footage. The ones that impressed me the most are Left 4 Dead and World of Warcraft. I'll go into more detail about Left 4 Dead in a little bit but the part I saw in World of Warcraft had a person in full armor with a long sword standing and what was really cool was the sword jumped out of the screen at you. Like those 3D movies you see, I was tempted to just reach out and wave my hand through it. The 8 minute presentation showed impressive effects and what could be accomplished with the setup."
