It's certainly possible that there could be a S3D game out there on the consoles that I don't know about, but since I'm scouring the net every day for any tidbit of information about this stuff, and I also listen to gaming podcasts all day long, where they actually discuss 3D gaming on a regular basis, it would just seem like a longshot for me not to have heard about it.

For example, take the indy 3D Infinity game. I've heard somebody else mentioning that as a S3D game, but I was under the impression that it was anaglyph like the retail copy of G-Force and the xbox live game Scrap Metal. If 3D Infinity really supports legit digital stereoscopic 3D, then that is one game that I don't really know about, but being an indy game, they don't get much coverage on all the websites I read and the podcasts I listen to.

Basically, I definitely don't know everything about S3D gaming on console, but I do follow it extremely closely. I'm also a long-time fan of the original Tecmo Bowl, and have heard a number of conversations about Throwback on various podcasts, and S3D support was never mentioned.

Don't sweat it It's hard to figure out who knows what on these forums. And I guess I should have done more research myself, before posting.

I think we are all eager to see more content, and frustrated by the lack of real information. I find myself grasping at straws most of the time. It's a shame it takes so much research and so many posts to ferret out if something is really S3D or not.

Wow, I had no idea. Cool. Too bad I no longer have a 360 with hdmi.

These games have splitscreen coop (side by side). When one player dies, the second player can choose to see what the other player is playing on the other side of the screen, (if there are no respawns), so both sides of the screen would show the same image. Can a 3d tv interpret this scenario as 3d, since they accept the side by side format?

To do this, you would need:
Xbox 360 and GRAW, GRAW 2 or PS3 with GRAW 2
2 controllers
(don't know if a 360 without hdmi would work but it might, since the splitscreen coop can be shown on a tv with component cables.

Settings:
coop (any mode)
Extra lives to 0
start the game
shoot the 2nd player
on 2nd player, hit a trigger button so player 1 is shown on left side
push the right stick so the view switches to first person
turn on side by side 3d on tv or glasses

Probably won't work, but it might be worth to give it a try. I'm still saving for my tv (hopefully will have the $ saved by black friday) so I can't try it.

That would only work if the second player could view the game from slightly over to the right. If it's the exact same image delivered to each eye, it might as well be 2D.

I like your thinking though.

I read that if a game can do split screen, it is ahead of the curve, and already has the capability to do 3D, with some software tweaking.

I think the 2nd player is not displaced and sees the same image. I played the game again this weekend but don't think it will work; the image is not exactly the same. On the left screen it shows the aiming reticule, while on the right it shows "watching player one". I was hoping this would work since these games have some really great maps that I'd love to walk around in 3d.

Hopefully the next GR will be in 3d.

Has anyone played 3D Infinity in stereoscopic 3D (using side-by-side) on a 3D TV? I wasn't sure if a 3D TV would accept the signal since the Xbox 360 uses HDMI 1.2.

Cool. What TV did you use? How was the game? I played it in 2D (I haven't purchased a 3D TV yet), and based on the camera angle, it seemed like it would benefit a lot from 3D.

63PNC8000. It looks a lot better than Avatar in 3D but that's more because there is a lot less to render on the screen. Its a fun quick demo type of game.

Thanks for the response. It's good to know that the Xbox 360 really does support 3D SbS without a firmware update. I was worried that I wouldn't see modern (as outlined in HDMI 1.4 standard) 3D from the Xbox 360.

I'm sure we'll be learning a lot more about 3D console games and release dates at E3 next week.

The PS3 is getting stereoscopic games tomorrow:

WipeOut HD
SuperStarDust HD
PAIN
Motorstom: Pacific Rift (demo)


I may get PAIN if the 3D turns out to be real good.

My mistake. Sony's original announcement said June 10 in Japan, US date TBA. Very happy to find out it's the same day! I love Pain, and can't wait to buy the 3D update tomorrow!

Yes very good news about the US PS3 update...this is a great excuse to get one even though the 3D bluray playback will come at a later date.

I just (12:20 a.m.) tried to purchase WipEout HD at the Playstation Store. when I select it, I get a blank screen that says "No content was found"

I have all these games (in 2D)

WipeOut HD is a pretty cool fast-paced futuristic racing game, but it gets REALLY hard. You need the reflexes of a 15 year old to navigate at those speeds.

SuperStarDust HD is like Asteroids with power-ups. It's fun, and the "board" is already the sphere of a planet (you can go right around it) so it's probably the best suited for 3D.

PAIN is a fun party game. you launch your guy into targets and walls and stuff from a giant slingshot. it's a physics based game, so you try to break stuff or bounce off things to do the most damage. they have group game modes like bowling or HORSE. you'll get bored of it as a single player game, but you can always break it out if you want to play with friends for a laugh.

Motorstom: Pacific Rift (Demo) should be free, so it's worth a try. I liked the first Motorstom better than Pacific Rift, but it's still a cool arcade/off-road racer.


* i have a samsung "3D ready" DLP (hl-t5689s) and no glasses or transmitter, so i'm not sure if the PS3 outputs a checkerboard signal yet.

The games are in the PSN store now. Don't know why though, there was no firmware update yet?

So, you're saying there's a chance?

according to the playstation blog post, the firmware update was done back in april, they waited for the sony 3D tvs before making the games use the update.

Yes, and it works pretty damn good with many pc games (in side by side). Much better than the built in 2D to 3D on the sammy's .

Does require a pretty fast pc, I am running a 3.4 quad, 4GB DDR3, Radeon 4890 OC'd.

I do not know (doubt it uses 4 cores), but even with the pc that I have it slows the games down a few frames/sec (I run games @ 1920x1080p with all settings maxed).
