Stereoscopic 3D in Video GamesPosted by Nikhil on 09/12 at 11:40 AM in
\n As I mentioned earlier, Sony being at the forefront of the stereoscopic 3D gaming industry has created demand with the Playstation 3, offering full 720p resolution for the right and left eyes individually, while XBOX 360 outputs both the left and right eye into one 720p frame i.e. half the resolution of Playstation 3. Sony is also set to release it's own Playstation-brand monitor built with 3D gameplay in mind. I suspect, Microsoft will not want Sony to leap too far ahead of them in the S3D realm. This will be interesting to see just exactly what they do to compete.\n
\n It has become apparent that video-game manufacturers are taking the 3D market seriously with the number of 3D games that have been released. Consumers on the other hand still have not fully jumped on board. However, the popularity of Halo and Gears of War could be just what the gaming world needs to become immersed in S3D. What Avatar did for 3D films, Halo and Gears of War could do for 3D video-games.
