PlayStation 3's 3D implementation explained, may require upscaling and reduction in detail to work

It was only a couple of days ago that Sony flicked the switch on 3D compatibility for the PS3 -- albeit without retail games that can yet exploit it -- so what better time to dig into the nitty gritty details of the company's implementation of the third dimension? Digital Foundry have done just that, starting off with a discussion of how Sony translated WipEout HD from 2D into 3D.

There's a Digital Foundry link after the jump. It's quite informative!

There's no reading on this site! We come here for WAR!! With warriors and weapons including the off-topic machine gun, phantom disagree assassins, knee-jerk reaction explosives and the all time favorite, the Flamethroweerrrrr!!! Suit up and step to the front lines and throw logic out the window, for we are after those bubbles.

All this 3D garbage can't be good for the eyes.

i read it was informative .

SO it's 3d , steady framrate , and a slighty lower resolution you don't really notice since you're in 3D mode really.

"3D" effects are smokes and mirrors in every movies so far so it's not really a problem IMO .

Also garanteed no screen tearing (i'm IN )

Well tv in general can also be bad for your eyes. And on top of that vision for some people go bad regardless of watching any tv a la hereditary/age. It is also proven males gain vision when woman show cleavage and eat carrots and say "eh what's up doc".

The Great Melon3100d ago (Edited 3100d ago )

Screen tearing isn't allowable anymore if games are meant to be 3D. That sort of thing would undoubtedly cause headaches if present. I am willing to sacrifice some resolution to get some good 3D games. What would be really cool in Wipeout is altering the depth as you go faster.

I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait to watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and play the Motorstorm:PR demo in 3D.

Anyone who understands the technology already knew this stuff.

What i found interesting was that using the technology the new 3ds is using gave me more of a headache and feeling walleyed lol than current 3d and it uses no glasses at all but the shutter technology is definately the least desirable imo in terms of strain much prefer the avatar tech.

3D TV exist from years.

Every 120+hz TV is 3D Ready.

rexus123453100d ago

3D TV is out for a while now, but not every 120Hz TV will support 3D. Most LCD or Plasma TVs, even if they are advertised to have 120Hz/240Hz refresh rate, will only accept 30/Hz60Hz input, the output's high refresh rate is due to some digital magic inside the TV.

I went and saw a 60inch 3d LED today. They had a demo playing and it was amazing. It was like comparing 576i to 1080p. I got depressed as I now want one. It was well priced 2.

wanaraceu3100d ago

I'm still going to wait and see what sonys TVs are like as they only had samsung there. Also want to wait for more content.

GT5 will be the reason for me to get into 3D gaming.
