It causes me eyestrain as well. I'm great with passive 3D (in the theaters), but my eyes don't seem to like active. It's an individual thing, as a close friend of mine says that the passive strains his eyes, but the active is good.
As far as 3D quality, side by side just isn't going to be all that great. From my personal experience, the best stereoscopic 3D formats have been:
1. Checkerboard, 2. Frame-packed, 3. Top and Bottom, 4. Side by Side
The only 3d gaming I experienced was on the ps3. And it looked very good. But from what I understand ps3 uses 720p frame packing. Plus it was converted to checkerboard with my DLP convertor box so it was a win-win either way.
As someone already mentioned, side by side is considered inferior if for no other reason than it results in lost resolution. Hopefully this isn't the route that xbox took, but then again, it wouldn't surprise me.
But don't worry. In a few years you'll be able to buy a passive 3D TV with full resolution
