As the title says, do you agree with 3D gaming? A movement into the next generation of gaming or is it an expensive gimmick?
apparently the next xbox update will bring 3D, i dont know how they can squeeze that out of the GPU in there
I'll make roughly the same post I made on the PCGamer article. 3d is like a bad fart. It rears its ugly head once a decade, lingers for a few years and then disappears into oblivion for the majority remainder of the decade. I'm pretty sure it has been doing this since the 70's, or maybe the 80's. They make some really, really expensive gimmicky gadgets, like 3d TV's or graphics cards, they cost an arm and a leg, and they market it like 3d is this awesome thing that makes games and movies better.
Way I see it, it just makes them different. I personally have absolutely no desire to have things jump out of the screen at me when I'm watching a movie or playing a game. I enjoy those 2 things exactly as they are on a regular TV/monitor.
Also 3d hurts my eyes after a few minutes.
My prediction is in about 2 years time you won't hear anything new about 3d. No new technology in the works, nothing to be released, no more games being made in 3d or anything. Then in like 2018 all of a sudden it'll start rearing its smelly, lingering-fart like head again and you'll start to notice it all over the gadget shows and technology shows and so forth, before it dies again in yet another couple of years.
i dont have a 3D monitor or TV and i think they are overpriced, and that is the main reason, if i could play 3D through my normal monitor then i would give it another shot, i know 3D can be made via the blue/red glasses and that doesnt require a 3D monitor
until 3D means that you have to look behind you to see behind you, I really cant see what makes it any better. Definately should be a gimmicky fad. Although so much cash has been invested, that I guess its here to stay for a while.
