Question XBOXOne 3D

Any word on when 3D will be enabled? I've googled it and all I can find is that it's coming...just not yet. I'm just wondering if anyone here might have different information.

If it did it would be announced at Xbox.com and most likely part of the monthly preview for new features each month.

The 5.0 is here

First off let it be said that I'm a fan of 3D.

Is home 3D still a thing? Because when I go to Best Buy or wherever all I see now is 4k UHD, OLED and curved screens being pushed. They don't even have 3D demo stations anymore. Do all new high end sets still have 3D or is it yesterday's news?

I do have a 3D set though it isn't in optimum viewing position, so I'd love to see it implemented if it comes, but it feels dead in the water right now.

My understanding is that 3D cannot be made available on the Xbox One (or the PS4 for that matter) due to hardware limitations. Am I incorrect? I hope so because I like 3D and it would free up some space in my new system I'm configuring (currently using a Panasonic 3D player for 3D movies only).

From what I'm reading online, it's going to happen. Just no date yet.

Not a hardware limitation just a more complex request than it would initially seem. Since you can press Home at anytime, supporting 3D Blu-ray playback requires a 3D dashboard. And think about all the UI transition scenarios. I'd guess some tvs have issues switching modes often as well. It's just lots of engineering for a "nice to have" feature.

But Phil Spencer told Engadget during E3 that it's in the queue. So we'll probably get it some day. And I'm looking forward to putting my blu-ray player away.

It's funny to me that now that we can finally get full-HD passive 3D (on a 4k TV), many manufacturers (Vizio, for example) aren't including 3D anymore. It's one of the few things a 4k TV is currently good for!

Unfortunately, 3D viewership is waning. So it just is not a priority for Sony or Mircrosoft.

Personally I think the glasses are the biggest obstacle for 3D. Once they get those 3D sets without the need for glasses going I think things might change.

My new TV does full-HD passive 3D, and it is glorious. I always thought 3D on my old TV was better than anything in the theaters, but my new TV smokes the old one. Plus, it's nice not having to worry when the batteries are going to die in your glasses while watching a movie.

I was really hyped on 3D when it first appeared during the last World Cup. I remember getting the super expensive (at the time), Panasonic 3D Plasma, and watching various World Cup games in 3D. Then you had PS3 games in 3D. Then the 3D Blu Rays started to arrive. Things were looking good.

Then it all collapsed, at least it seemed that way. ESPN shut down their 3D channel, I'm not sure if Direct TV is doing anything 3D anymore. Video Games on PS3 stopped including 3D options. The PS4 and Xbox One have very little 3D content to mess with.


However, I recently got a BenQ W1070 projector, and decided that I might as well test out the 3D, since this was my first 3D compatible projector. I was pretty amazed by the experience of watching the Avatar 3D Blu Ray on my big 126" screen. It was almost as good as the local cineplex. Very, very impressive. This has caused me to have a new interest in watching 3D Blu Ray's, but it's pretty disappointing that the PS4 or Xbox One doesn't have 3D Blu Ray support yet...

I still don't have any 3D compatible audio receivers, so I have to wire things up directly to the projector, and then figure out how to get the sound to the audio receiver. It's a real PITA. If the PS4 or Xbox One had 3D Blu Ray, it would be a bit easier, because then I could just use that device as my main hub, and only have to connect things one time, instead of connecting and re-connecting different devices, depending on what I'm using.

Just get a monoprice Matrix 4 x2 HDMI Switcher. Run HDMI output A to the BenQ projector. And Output HDMI B to your receiver. problem solved. There won't be any delays or lags. I use that exact setup. And it works flawlessly. I'm pretty sure the newer Monoprice Switchers pass through 3D. And I'm 100% sure they will do the sound.

Even the old monoprice switchers pass 3d. At least several of my old ones do.

I think so too, but I haven't heard much about it for a while now. I wonder if development on glasses free 3d has slowed down because general interest in 3D is declining.

From what I can tell displays still have it (particularly high end) but I think marketing realized that you can't "sell" a TV with it to many people as the general public thinks it's annoying mostly and refuses to pay more for it.

Honestly I like 3D at home more than in theaters. In a theater I'd assume see a 2D version unless there's a special reason. Not sure why I like it at home more (maybe I'm weaker at home and susceptibility to marketing increases).

Lots of sites including MajorNelson.com are reporting that the August Xbox One update will include, among other things, BluRay 3D support.

It would certainly be surprising to see BD 3D support from MS before Sony. I just wish MS would fix the rear surround audio issues from the apps and the HDMI input. Until they do I can't seriously use my XBOne for TV watching or using the apps. Fortunately the issue does not occur when playing a BD.

3D Blu Ray support would be a nice bonus. Normally, you'd think something like that would already be standard with both consoles, but oh well, I guess beggars can't be choosers. We have to settle for any bone they throw us.

Maybe the XB1 Netflix app will update to allow 3D soon as well ? (although I don't have the bandwidth to actually use Netflix 3D)

For whatever reason, Sony has really soured on 3D; ironic since they were one of the companies that initially pushed it so hard (despite having some of the worst 1st and 2nd generation 3D hardware). Even their promotion of their Morpheus VR headset makes no mention of 3D even though the device clearly supports it.

I'm surprised that MS is enabling 3d support before Sony. So glad I'll be able to watch 3d movies again

Do you use passive or active? Now that I've got the One, I'm delving into the 3D world of TVs and trying to sort it out.

I own both technologies (a 63" active and a 55" passive) and while each has its plusses and minuses, I tend to prefer passive primarily for its convenience: no need to worry about charging glasses or changing batteries and passive glasses are lighter and far less expensive (some TVs including the LG models are even compatible with the RealD glasses you use at the movie theater).

The real issue is that there is very little 3D gaming content for consoles out there. You'll find that most games supporing 3D on the PS3 and Xbox 360 suffer from significant resolution and frame-rate drops. There are only a few 3D games on the PS4 (Trine 2, Outlast, Pinball FX) and none so far for the Xbox One.

Thanks for the great reply. I'm not at all interested in 3D gaming. Just 3D movie watching. I'm leaning towards passive and you just confirmed most of what I'm thinking are its advantages. Thanks.

I have both at home as well. A 47" LCD passive and an 82" DLP active. I prefer using the active glasses. With the passive ones it seems to bother my eyes more and cause fatigue. I don't have any fatigue issues with the active glasses and my DLP set.

Isn't it sad that just as it feels like a significant proportion of people finally have 3DTVs, that support for it is basically non-existent?

I wish Active 3D would have died along with plasma.

I love my active 3d setup. Granted it is a projector setup so brightness isn't a problem. Best 3d I've seen.

I would agree with that when using an Ultra HD set. Since those have full resolution images for each eye. But I know with passive 1080P sets you need to be at least six feet away otherwise it looks really nasty.
