everyones setup, equipment, glasses and most important eye sight is different




Also, in regards to the other posters about the PS3 3D setup. I adjusted my screen size to 11" and wow the 3D in Uncharted was so strong my eyes felt like there were on fire. I had to adjust the s3D strength in gaem down by 2 notches. I thought the 3D and epth before was great but now the whole image feels like it surrounds me and the depth is huge.... good find

So you are saying then that you think the 3D in GOW 3 is at least on par with Killzone 3 or better? How about the overall game?

I have GOW 3 but haven't opened it yet. I was thinking of returning it because I mainly was interested in it if it has outstanding 3D...

+1 to this. Gears 3 is a much, much better game than Killzone 3.

100% agreed

Killzone 3 is better with 3D, but game wise it feels like a cheap GOW wannabe

Game goes to GOW3

I figured that was the case with GOW 3 being the better game. But my main interest in it was for experiencing (more) 3D gaming. If the 3D in it is just fair I probably will pass. Unless you are saying that from a 2D experience the game is a unique experience compared to GOW 2 (same old or same old or...?).

It's sad that people would pass on Gears 3. It's the best in the series. I too was hoping for a great 3D experience with Gears of War 3. Instead, I got the worst 3D I've ever seen. I switched back to 2D, and had an absolute blast for the next 8 hours! I love 3D, but quality is quality.

I picked up Crysis off PSN last night. It's on sale this week for $14.99 and $10.49 if you're a PSN+ member.

On my setup, the 3D looks pretty good. It's pretty subtle, but does add to the experience. I think I'll mess with the screen size and see if it makes a difference. What is odd is in options, I picked 3D and the only choice was over/under. I picked it and it worked just like anything else - not sure if that matters to anyone.

Either way, for the $10.49 I paid, it's a no-brainer. Recommend everyone that can pick it up.

I wouldnt play a game for its 3D unless the 3D was native or used some kind of advanced reprojection tech. Everything from Socom to Arkham to Gears I have laid eyes on is not worth getting red marks on my nose.

Thanks. It's good to know that if I don't like the 3D that the 2D is still with the experience.

Anyone see this yet or got any thoughts on it?

http://www.msxbox-world.com/news/art...r-3d-game.html

Also what about Ghost Recon Future Soldier? I believe it will also be Kinect and 3D.

Also 1 last thing (hope I'm not asking a question already been asked here but) I was noticing this TV size 3D cheat thing, will this work with Frame Pack games on the 360 ?

Any thought's greatly appreciated.

Tried Sword and Soldiers last night. Got it over a year ago prior to having a 3D setup, so it was a nice surprise to see it supports 3D.

Nothing that will rock your world, but the 3D is a nice addition to a criminally underrated game that everyone should try.

Dungeon Defenders is on sale too for around $8 and it too looks pretty great in the 3D. Another amazing game as well.

With regard to Star Wars Kinect being 3D, I saw the video of it and it looked interesting, especially as the 360 can clearly pump out some good 3D visuals.

Personally though I really don't like games that are 100% Kinect controlled. My preference is something like Halo Anniversary or the upcoming Mass Effect 3 where you can use your control pad as your primary controller and Kinect to perform secondary functions like throwing grenades, switching weapons or commanding squadmates as I find that a more organic use of the device than just waggling your arms around.

If Ghost Recon and a few more games were follow this hybrid control model I may even be tempted to get a Kinect myself. It would be nice if Star Wars also implemented that kind of hybrid control scheme (though I'm not holding my breath for that).

the only way to set your ps3 to "x" screen size setting as of now is to re-auto-detect the display settings and then manually change it to whatever inch size you want. and to answer your 2nd question, it definitely depends on how 3d is implemented in any particular game, in some games it is so extreme is is unviewable, in others it shifts the pop-in/pop-out balance, in some it has no effect at all, but in games like uncharted 3 or child of eden it makes the depth almost perfect....there is no magic bullet you have to do different tests to get the best 3d setting for each individual game.

It doesn't shrink the image, if that's what you're thinking. Rather, it adjusts the 3D as lunaluagua described.

After the PS3 auto detects your display, it will then ask you to enter the screen size manually. There's no way for the PS3 to detect your screen size, so it just has to ask you and trust you're honest (but most of us here are lying scoundrels). The only way to access this setting is by using the auto detect display option though.

I picked up the Jak and Daxter Remastered Trilogy for PS3 as the games support stereoscopic 3D. I'm about 1/4 of the way thru the first game and the 3D effect is pretty good, especially Daxter's in your face animations when you die. I expect the 3D will be even better in the later games as they were technically and visually more advanced. I'd never played any of the J&K PS2 games so this is a fresh experience for me and a bargain at $39.99 for 3 games.

Thanks for the feedback. I was wondering how the 3D mode would be. How do frame-rate and resolution fare?

I've avoided playing Jak 2 and Jak 3 until I finish the first game so I can only go by that one and the frame rate is fine most of the time but there are a few areas where the game really slows down (the fort in the Snowy Mountain for one). As far as resolution goes, again I've only played the first game and I find the resolution to be quite sharp (game is 720p) with none of the drops you see in newer games though the art style is relatively simplistic compared to today's games of course.



BTW, House of the Dead: Overkill for the PS3 is also 3D. I picked that one up and played thru the first chapter. The 3D is pretty good though not as in your face as I expected for a game like this; there is also a bit more ghosting visible in this one. The game is also ridiculously over the top in terms of profanity; its set up like a bad 1970s grindhouse movie, right down to the scratched film, really embraces that motif. In terms of control, I find the Move to be quite accurate and I got thru the first chapter on my first playthru. Holding the Move controller can cramp your arm up pretty quickly however so I may look into a gun shell.

Forgot about house of the dead... I may have to download it since I have the move gun thing that came out when killzone was released. Does it require constant recalibration? Dead space extraction was excruciating with that lol.

Bit by the upgrade bug, limited by the WAF

On my setup I was able to get thru the entire first chapter without recalibrating once. Accuracy seemed solid and consistent throughout the level and my biggest issue was my arm cramping up a bit because of the shape of the move controller; hopefully a gun shell will remedy that somewhat.
