So this year, everyone is showing off their 3d tvs.
I have seen a demo video on a Sony 3d tv and was very impressed but had nothing to compare it to until last night.
Firstly for all that don't know of 3d tvs - its basically the same as watching a new 3d movie such as avatar at the cinemas but at home. yes you still have to wear those dorky glasses :(
After checking out Panasonic's 50 inch 3d tv (also a 54" and 65" will be available I think end of May Sometime - the 50" did not have a confirmed price yet but the retail should be roughly $5,000) while plying Avatar the game in 3d I realized just how much I am looking forward to getting my hands on one of these puppies. The game itself i found boring but the 3d side of it was amazing.
This game was in full HD and had no ghosting effect as you see in old 3d movie technology. this game (just like the movie) wasn't created to have lots of imaging popping out of the screen at you but A lot of depth was added. The character that you play as was how ever appeared to be standing outside of the screen and seemed to come further out as you moved the camera around him)
What I am looking forward to is games that have 3d in mind when they are being created! I can imagine the next FPS games having people jumping as they playing their games due to bullets and shrapnel etc flying past ur character and jumping right out of the screen.. Or in any game just having things jumping at you from nowhere will be alot of fun!
In saying that, people will get over these things pretty quickly and that wont be as impressive as when you first saw a 3d tv. But after watching 3d movies / playing 3d games I find that 2d is just boring.
Just some more info on these for people that dont know much - 3d tvs do not make everyday tv look 3d and yes - you can watch normal 2d content on them.
The glassed that you wear are battery powered and wirelessly sync up with the tv.
3D content will only be released on Blu ray and you will need a updated ps3 or a 3d Blu Ray player ( sorry 360...)
I for one, am looking forward it!
