Played act 1 in 3D. It uses side by side (like all 360 3D games) and it is awful, terrible, unacceptable, use your own negative adjective du jour.
The depth of field and before/beyond window effects are only average. There is a noticeable loss of texture detail, more pronounced aliasing, and screen tearing. But the worst, absolutely worst part: INPUT LAG.
It is most noticeable at the beginning while Marcus is walking around the Raven's Nest looking for Dom; pan the camera around to see. But wait, there's more! Try active reloading any weapon, there is tangible lag between pressing RB and the hash stopping where it needs to. I would go so far to say that Gears 3 is near unplayable in dimension 3 and I have no confidence that things will be better for Halo CE Anniversary.
No biggie, it just gives me an excuse to turn off the D7000 and turn on the light cannon and play via a 92" screen in 1080p.
