Every time I see some of them floating around I'll take a minute to walk around in them. If nothing else, it gives me a great idea of what's possible with 3d gaming and I'm liking what I'm seeing. More please!


PS3 or 360? I have both so not sure which system to pick it up on. Has anyone tried both?

they make it for both. i bought it for the ps3. hope this helps. also go to avatar the game on wikipedia and it tells you everything about the game.

I tried both just to see if they would work. They are virutally identical, but I didn't get to far into the game. Not too shabby, but I can't wait to see what Crytek has up their sleeves.

I bought for the 360. Mainly because I like the controller better heh.

I bought Avatar for PS3, but exchanged it the next day for the 360 version. Its one of those games where lazy developers made it for 360 first because its "easier" (lazier), then ported it to PS3. So the framerate on the PS3 version is almost unplayable.

But the game is good, actually really good. I'm totally shocked that I'm enjoying it at all, because I usually hate licensed games. I'd recommend it to anyone with a 3D setup.

This is something interesting I found that I thought was a good article for this thread.

http://gameinformer.com/b/features/a...le-gaming.aspx

Just really thought it was extra interesting with the segascope 3d section. I am playing around with a emu and the 6 games available for the segascope peripheral. I really want to see if I can figure out how to play this handful of old games on my 2009 mitz with my xpand x102s LOL.

Trust me I know it will be lame but just a geek thing of "can I do it" and because I llove the idea of old and new tech working together. Any help here from any other old school gamers, geeks, 3D gamers or all the above would most certainly be appreciated.

I hope that article was as retrotastic for everyone else that reads as it was for me.

I am thinking that this may work with the mitz adapter. I believe the format being used in the game is field sequential according to a article I read. Guess I'll have to wait to find out when I finally receive a adapter and see if it will transform to checkerboard for me. Any thoughts anyone?

Just read that Crysis 2 has been delayed until next year. It sounds like they just didn't want to go up against Call of Duty. Lame. That's the two major 3D titles coming out in 1st quarter '11...assuming they actually come out then.

The Sega Master System with the 3D Segascope was actually the first videogame console I ever owned (bought it with my first paycheck from my first 'real' job out of college). It was a very clever peripheral and while only a handful of games were released for it the 3D effect was quite good, especially Missile Defense 3D which used both the 3D glasses and a light gun (that made for a lot of wires running across the floor).

As I recall, the technology was designed to run on old CRT based displays in interlaced mode so I don't know if it will translate to newer TVs. The games also ran at what is today a ridiculously low resolution (256x192 or something close to that I think).

Well, unfortunately delayed to March fiscal quarter, 2011 according to the publisher Electronic Arts.

Seeing as I'm starved for 3D content, I went ahead and tried a few more 3D games:

The Wipeout Fury add-on for the PS3 supports steroscopic 3D; the tracks are recycled from the old PSP wipeout games but the sense of depth is really nice and the new sleds seem easier to control as well. There's a little bit of ghosting visible in the track and sled select screens but once the action starts it's pretty much invisible. Definitely worth the $9.99 pricetag if you enjoy racing games.

I also decided to try out Invincible Tiger. It's a downloadable kung-fu fighting game that is available via either Xbox Live for the Xbox 360 or the Playstation store for the PS3. I DL'd the 360 demo and gave the game a whirl. It has numerous options for different types of 3D (side by side, top and bottom, etc.) as well as sliders to fine tune the 3D depth and bias settings. After playing with the different settings (top and bottom worked best for me) I got a nice 3D effect. Not sure its worth the $15 asking price but the demo is definitely worth a look (especially as it is free).

I'm looking forward to gran turismo 5 in November.

I'll have my 3D glasses on, using my logitech wheel mounted on a wheel stand pro, with a playstation eye for head tracking. I'll practically be a borg with all that lot

I found this article about a new 3D game for both xbox 360 and PS3 from the creators of no more heroes. Here is the link.

http://gamescom.gamespot.com/story/6...ing-3d-shooter

Nice to see something more on XBOX 360.

Preciate the heads up. You're talking about the "3-D Sizzle" thing right? They put the Resident Evil trailer in the 3-D section and that threw me off, but I don't think it's 3-D.

Scroll down a tad on the right and you'll see a tab for 3-D. Select that and you'll see the games and the "sizzle" trailer. It' s a brief but kinda cool look at a few 3-D games.

Halo: Reach in 3D???

Don't get excited just yet but there is an article over at TeamXbox.com that talks about some billboards at the Microsoft section of GamesCom 10 in Germany that mentioned seeing Halo: Reach in 3D. No actual footage was shown but I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard for MS to work in a Side by Side or Top and Bottom 3D mode.

If this were true it would certainly put a nice spotlight on 3D. Full article is here:

I saw the same article from a different source, but they confirmed that it wasn't Bungie or Microsoft doing the presentation. It was from Toshiba, showing off their 3DTV's, and using Halo for the demonstration. Apparently, Toshiba is using a 3D conversion method, because Halo does not currently support stereoscopic 3D.

There are actually quite a few 3D trailers available in PS Store. Just do a "3D" search and see results for yourself.

Umm, maybe you can fill us in but I see none. They only have about 10 trailers as it is and none are in 3D

The trailer for Afterlife did not say it was in 3D, not even sure why Sony put it there. Only options are 1080p or 720p, no 3D.

@chriss Lol I was posting that info as I was downloading stuff n a few of those trailers claiming to be in 3D were not. Sorry my bad.
