'Immersion, deep environments and a real sense of danger' Killzone 3, Crysis 2 and Call Of Duty: Black Ops have all recently included the option to play in stereoscopic 3D, winning rave reviews from critics for the implementation of the tech.
Thats awesome Zipper, Now can I get Demo back with 3D?
Not a fan of 3D
We need new consoles before 3d will take off, the current ones are just not powerful enough to use it well.
Yeah, but good game could also be new standard. Follow my eyes.
first make a shooter worth to buy and then we speak
killzone 3 in 3d is well worth it so is crysis 2 so go troll somewhere else. ps i suggest you try it before you knock it i have 3d tv and it is awesome and everyone i know who has seen it loves it.
Yeah calm down there sunshine, his comment is directed specifically at Zipper based on the reception SOCOM is getting. As in they should focus on making a good shooter 1st before talking about 3D
lol cliffbo... calm down! people can have a different opinion. but, can you pm me with your opinions on 3D please. also do you have a telly that can convert 2D to 3D on your set? and does it work well many thanks
It's great for those that currently have it, which of course is the minority, in this case (based on beta/reviews) the time to implement it should of been spent else where.
@Joni - Bomb Squad is better than Demolition, and makes more sense. @chak - Zipper has delivered two good games this generation. It's just too bad for the masses neither are like Call of Duty. I'm a Socom vet from game one day one, and I'm laughing at all the whiners.
Bomb Squad is good addition but we need demo and Extraction back. Also I hope they have Socomish maps. The maps in the beta felt like MAG type of maps.
i just recently bought a 2011 model 46 inch bravia LED 3D. but seeing as it is sony, i have to buy the galsses separately... ridiculous imo and i thought it was only microsoft that like fleecing their customers?? but if you want quality you buy sony simple! anyway, i am still waiting for the 2011 sony glasses to become available in france where i live to finally try the 3D. so for me i am hoping that it will become even more standard in the future. also, my bravia has the ability to convert 2D into 3D, so i cant wait to try out some games in that mode
It appears most of the 3D TV manufacturers are joining Sony in not packing any glasses in with their 2011 models - at least that seems to go for Samsung and Panasonic as well (except for possibly Panasonic's most expensive model, the upcoming VT30). I want to buy a 3D TV this year, but so far the prices haven't exactly been encouraging. I had hoped that the intent to offer 3D in some of the midrange models would mean some decent prices, but so far it looks like the 46" and 50" models I'm looking at have prices starting pretty much where they 2010 models were when they were released (and I'm not going to jump on one of the new cheaper 2010 models, given how many issues those first generation models supposedly had). Right now I'm looking at the passive 2011 models from LG instead - specifically the 47LW550. The TV set might not be cheaper than the active models, but at least the glasses are all but free (and you get seven pairs with the TV).
is that the full LED tv?? and 7 pairs of glasses is very good. for 7 pairs of active sony glasses would cost me a bit of dough yeah prices arent cheap, but it's to be expected, and i wanted the tv lol.. im still pissed that avatar 3D is exclusive to panasonic until 2012 and retails on ebay for silly money. also, have a bubble for replying without a personal attack which is the norm on n4g
King, I have 2D to 3D on my Samsung and it's a pretty cool feature. I'm with you on Avatar being exclusive to Panasonic but I was able to use this feature on the 2D Avatar movie. 2D to 3D is not as good as native 3D (not as much depth) but I personally wouldn't buy a 3D tv without that option. Might as well have all the bells and whistles.
yeah real shame about avatar! and i totally agree about getting the tv with the conversion option. so it works ok the conversion? im itching for the glasses. lol i'm like kid waiting for xmas!! have you tried any games converted? blah blah pm me if you want?! and game on in 3D bubbles up
"but if you want quality you buy sony simple!" I am sorry but I vehemently disagree. Any Sony equipment I have ever bought (new or used) between 1985 and 2005 has all been been crappy, I believe the 1 year warranty expiration date should have been called FBOD (First Birthday of Death). I have zero personal experience with the PS3 (other than a 30 minutes of really disliking the controller, and interface);therefore, I am not saying it sucks or is inferior to the 360. I just can't agree with that statement. New:1 walkman, 2 discman, a 1993 27inch Sony Trinitron , a PS1 x 2 (1 worked for 1.5 years) PS2 slim overheated all the time. Used: 2 PS2's all requiring to be flipped over to work (or opened up and cleaned) If you have had a better experience than me, then that is awesome. I just didn't want to silently disagree. Incidentally my childhood atari 2600 still works
make an affordable 3D tv without glasses and im down.
I think you will be waiting 10 years + for that
with technology advancing these days, it'll only be around a 4 year wait. They already are technically on a "second-gen" 3d tv in stores...
its not something im dying to have so could care less.
I found 3D for shooters to be great also myself. I prefer not to use it in multiplayer (at least with Killzone 3) due to the fast pace. For single player though it is a nice option. The stealth portion of the Kaznan jungle in KZ3 was amazing in 3D. On the other hand, I didn't like Socom 4 in 3D. It only had a good effect on the menus and HUD. 3D may be better for FPS more so than 3rd. This is why I'm hoping that Naughty Dog has something special up their sleeves for Uncharted 3.
Put those fears to rest and download the 3D UC3 trailer from PSN and then just weep the game isn't out yet. Look guys I'm playing 3D games on a 100" screen via a projector and all games simply look amazing (bar the Crysis 2 demo). I've yet to try Socom though. I think once prices are affordable, there's a standard format, then more people will lose the hate once they try in their own homes rather than at shows or demos in stores. Or you could wait 3 years for glasses free TVs to be a decent size and affordable. Ass - I'm in gaming heaven now why wait!!!
I downloaded that and did enjoy it. It was mostly the cinematic stuff, which I'm sure Naughty Dog is going to nail. I want to see what they have as far as effects. The 3D wow factor like the snow or missles in Killzone or tires flying at you like Motorstorm.
I certainly hope that 3d is always optional.
