Xbox 360 getting 3D?!

Post by S7 mrmiller on Tue May 11, 2010 9:53 am

From Engadget:

The image above is unmistakeable: 3D gaming on an Xbox 360 with the help of an LG 3D television. From the looks of the Korean press release, LG and Microsoft have entered into a memorandum of understanding to jointly market LG's new 3D telvisions along side 3D-capable Xbox 360 games in South Korea, then later expand the partnership throughout the Asia Pacific region. If we're reading this correctly then it appears set to begin by bundling Xbox 360 3D games with LG 55/47LX9500 LED televisions sometime at the end of June. In other words, we're not seeing anything specific claiming new Xbox 360 hardware, just like we've seen on the PS3.

Cool but will not matter to me I can't see 3d with the glasses because I am blind in my right eye. If they do this you guys will all have to buy new gear ( glasses and what not) to play in 3D.

That's cool if your reeeeaally into 3d. Personally I could careless about 3d. I don't wanna watch tv in 3d either. I think 3d just a gimmick. Avatar on the IMAX was pretty cool, but it wasn't amazing to me. Every movie studio Is doing 3d upgrades to there movies after they have been film in 2d just to make more $. The ones filmed in 3d like avatar will be cool to see in 3d at the theater, which is where 3d should stay. I don't wanna play games in 3d or with natal either. I mean the 3d craze is stupid IMO look at step up 3d a dance movie in 3d come on. Maybe if I was 12 and they made a starfox in real 3d then I would be excited

Actually, he can.

In an April 23rd story CNN recently reported on a $4 million 3D porn film called "3D Zen and Sex" about to commence production.
http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/04/23/porn.technology/index.html

http://pcworld.about.com/od/pcw/Porn-Industry-Tiptoes-Into-3D.htm

Graham Travis, at the porn studio Elegant Angel, said 3D movies cost far more to make than the average adult movie, which costs around $25,000 to $40,000. "We would love to do 3D but it's just too expensive right now," he said.
Ali Joone, founder of Digital Playground, said 3D movies cost about 30 percent more to make than traditional films due to the setup time, the need for two cameras and a more intricate post-production process.
3D glasses are also an issue, he said, because people don't want to be encumbered by eyewear when viewing a film. "I think the glasses are the barrier," he said.
But Joone believes the 3D experience is compelling enough that it will catch on in time. The sense of voyeurism is heightened by 3D, he said, and will make people feel as if they are in the room with the actors and actresses.
One of the first 3D adult films was the 1969 soft-core movie "The Stewardesses." The film was initially tagged with an X rating and shown only in small theaters in a few cities, but was later remade as an R-rated film for wider distribution in mainstream theaters. It has been called one of the most profitable 3D films ever, because it cost only about $100,000 to make and grossed more than $27 million.

3D glasses are given away when you go see a movie around here. I've kept a few sets for personal
use once I can buy a 3dtv.

I'm not a 3D fan, and I think it's just a fad like it was back on the day.

Not interested in 3D gaming or 3D movies either.
I'll leave that for Disney and the Muppet or some crap.
If I want 3D, I go outside my house...

Aww poor cat!
I'm not saying 3D will be like revolutionary to gaming - COD is plenty hard in 2D. But there is a certain niche for 3D games I think. Slower paced, puzzle type games maybe. Something to appeal to the stoners!

3D doesn't necessarily mean the game has to have things coming out at you. But it will add DoF as I mentioned earlier and thus, more realism.

If 3D was a option in future games I wouldn't mind trying it before I say no. But in this case I do agree with you guys that 3D should stay in theaters for 3D movies like Avatar and How to train your dragon.

I'm on the same boat I could care less for 3-D games movies only certain ones but it's not needed, we could do without. But hey you never know it might catch on, it might not only time will tell.

Going to be a long time before people can afford 3D TV's though. They'd have been better of teaming with nVida to use their 3D glasses that work with normal monitors.

HD was also considered just a "gimmick" years ago.

I'm with Epic on this one. 3D does not mean we're going to have bullets or whatever flying at our faces, it will just add depth to what's on our screen, allowing us to see everything better and giving some added realism.

You do realize the glasses at theaters will not work for 3D TV's. The theaters used polarized lenses to make the stereoscopic 3D (try tilting your head, or holding two pairs together with one rotated 90 degrees), while 3D TV uses an active shutter to create the same effect.

The problem with 3D at home is the need for the glasses and the way the tech works. Hell, it's hard to keep up with the remotes, let alone multiple pairs of glasses. The Tech is not expensive for the TV, but glasses are not cheap. Plus, you have to sit straight up to see it, no laying down or watching at an angle. Until they come out with more holographic tech, that doesn't need glasses, I just don't see it being much more than niche. It would still be cool to have just for the big movies, but I don't need to see Seinfeld re-runs or South Park in 3D.
