It's only a new tv, people buy new tv's all the time (ps3 will be upgradable to 3D via firmware update).

I was disappointed with the Avatar games 3D claims - I genuinely thought it would be a case of wearing the cinema glasses and nothing more...ah well!

Will these new 3D TVs require you to wear glasses while watching?

Yep.

I would buy this if I didn't already have the PSN Wipeout HD. Just waiting for the Fury pack to go on offer then will grab it.

Yep.


Hmmm, you see that really detracts from the point for me - particularly if its a day when I'm not wearing contact lenses (or before I've put them in) as would have to wear them over glasses. Think I'll wait until they do 3D TV without glasses - it'll happen and you know one day youll be saying to your mates "God do you remember the first 3D TVs?" "What the ones where you had to wear those ridiculous glasses?" "Yeah, but at the time we thought we were so cutting edge!"

They can do it now without glasses but it's expensive so for the time being we'll have to wear glasses like the cinema.

Glasses on top of glasses completely ruins the 3D thing for me. On top of that, it just hasn't been that good - and I've suffered the 3d versions of some good movies (TheWife wanted to see them in 3D). Up would have been just as good in 2D.

Back on-topic, I think I'm sold. I've had the demo on my PS3 for like a year and just couldn't bring myslef to buy it off the PSN.

Might have to pick this up :thumbsup:

And as for 3DTV, it'll be dead within a year of release, till they bring out some new fancy marketing scheme to make more money.

3D has been out for years, it just isnt that good tbh :thinking:

Great value for money. I Platinumed this game, cause I couldnt get enough of it!
#11
almost bought this off PSN this afternoon, ended up getting Pain instead for now, got some credit left on PSN and quite a bit in credit at gamestation so dont know whether to go for it off PSN or gamestation

The same was said for blu ray & that's getting quite close to main stream now, You never know really.

hah, gutted, it was £15.98 on gameplay.co.uk last week, but they've put their price up a quid now to bring it in line with the parent company it would seem.

glad i ordered it when i did then, especially as i got 95p quidco cashback too :)

True, but blu ray hasnt been out anywhere near as long. I'm sure when 3D was first released in cinemas people went crazy for it, but now it's not exactly ground breaking.

Only time will tell.

Ridiculous claim. Technology will always advance, money making 'scheme' or not.

3dTV dead within a year? do you realise how stupid you sound? 3d tv is only going to advance from here, and is the start of even more realistic television/gaming.

some peoples views of technology makes me laugh.

I'm probably being stupid - but does anyone know exactly how a 3d capable tv is different to a standard tv? Why can't you just watch 3d on a normal tv using some glasses?
Surely it's just the way the original program was filmed - using two cameras - and then you wear the glasses to make sense of the blurred image?

Not a 3d fan anyway - gives me a headache and nothing seems to quite be in focus properly

Back to the post though - good deal!! Might pick this up :thumbsup:

Awesome game. Best racer on the PS3 by far IMO: outstanding, fluid visuals, great control system, very steady learning curve, tons and tons of content and some nice, fast loading times. Would still be well worth it as a full-price game.

As for the 3D thing: I've been lucky enough to own a Zalman 3D monitor for my PC for a few years now and playing games on it in 3D is amazing. This holds especially true for racing games which seem to be the genre best suited to it. Would love to experience the same 3D on a full-size TV. Don't knock it as a gimmick till you've tried it. :)

The screen itself needs to have the ability to project light in 2 different polarizations, thus sending one half of an interlaced image though a horizontally polarized lens on the glasses covering the left eye and the other through a vertically polarized lens over the right eye.

You could use a normal TV if it had a high enough refresh rate (minimum 120Hz)... but you would need to display alternate left eye/right eye frames in rapid succession and complete the effect by using electronic shutter glasses that alternately blind each eye in synch with the picture. So it still means buying extra equipment and it's hard to produce LCD TVs that are really up to the refresh rate required (marketing hype aside).

So using the former method is where, I think, the new 3DTVs will differ but there are some standard TV setups out there that use the latter method (primarily high-end plasma as the response rate is much better).

Woah, nice going. Supposed to be extremley hard to plat.

Very good price. The 3D thing from sony has always sounded fishy to me, Im just not convinced that a console designed 6 years ago will have the graphical horsepower to output full HD 3D at a decent frame rate. Still, good game, good price

Most games won't be able to be in 3-D (as the console won't have the ppower) but wipeout HD was shown off at one of the electronics show in 3-D running perfectly.
