Kotaku Plays Dark Void PC at CES In 3D

Kotaku: "Nonplussed by the PS3's Gran Turismo in 3D and sort of blown away by Super Stardust HD 3D, I was split on 3D gaming when it came time to check out Capcom's upcoming Dark Void.

Where Gran Turismo's 3D seemed to add very little to the experience, giving you a slight sense of depth but little more while driving, and Super Stardust HD blew me away with its attention to 3D detail, Dark Void was somewhere in the middle."

3d is a niche that needs to go away. I see no point in this.
movies have been doing this for decades and you get the same lame results. Crappy glasses, Blur, headaches.

Skip 3D and move on to Holographic gaming. This is evolution

I only see 3D gaming producing Lawsuits from parents who's kid has gone blind or has headaches or fell down and cracked his/her skull while gaming.

3D has been around since Sir Charles Wheatstone invented it in 1838.

except it wasnt at all to the same level and result ... except in a few old imax features .

3d is there to stay . Hell if it's so old , and the same , then it follow every pattern we see with home and tv tech ... a glimpse then 10-15 years later , it's starting to get mainstream .

The most marvelous thing is this time it will be optional with most movies and games being watchable without the effects and glasses , unlike those horrid red/green stereostopic crap of old . So i dont get how you can hate so much something you can exactly chooses to skip .

For some of us 3d as always been more interesting and immersive than waving your arms around . And hell now we might get both at the same time

Avatar (amongst other movies like Up) has proven that 3D can definitely add to the experience without degrading the picture quality. And break into the mainstream while doing so. If a game or movie is engineered to run in 3D then it'll def. be a plus. Avatar made me a believer :).

I've read some impressions of 3D games at CES and for the most part, they're really positive. The standout being Super Stardust HD. If games are developed with the tech in mind, there shouldn't be an issue.


Now, immediately, its obvious that it won't catch like wildfire considering the barrier to entry: the costs of new TV and peripherals. Though personally, I plan on getting a new HDTV soon (have an OK rear-projection set now) and I'll def. be in the market for a 3D-ready model.

It's something that I think will catch on eventually, perhaps being an evolutionary step to holographic viewing. Whether there are people who oppose it or not. And that's the great thing about this'll be optional for those who want it.

Indeed . And obviously given Dark Void's low quality overall , it is hardly the best demo for 3d .

As for the barrier . Well Nvidia is already adding it with many of it's graphic cards . And 3d tv are not the pre-requisite (but obviously googles , enable players , graphic cards , and consoles are) , only the best way to enjoy it .

With already available and in constant developpement 3d tv without the need of glasses , 3d is definitively there to stay .

I'm pretty sure a website can't play a video game
