3D Gaming is the future – That is if you believe the Blitz CTO

Gamasutra has posted up a lengthy interview with Blitz’s CTO, Andrew Oliver, about the future of 3D gaming and what we can all expect to see.

Now I am a 3D sceptic and I really don’t think we are ever going to see 3D becoming a mainstream household technology unless we can dump the glasses and watch it as easily as we do normal TV now.

However Mr Oliver is off a different opinion and feels the leap to 3D is so great that we will happily strap on some sunnies and upgrade our TV’s to experience the most immersive gaming to date.

Mind you he may be a little biased as he has already convinced his company to lead the way in 3D by shipping Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao to the Xbox 360 and PS3 in analglyphic and sterescopic 3D.

If you’re interested in 3D and are a believer in the new technology then you may find the interview very interesting to read, if you are like me and don’t see this ever coming into our homes unless someone invents a better tech then this nutshell round up should have been enough.

He did mention something interesting towards the bottom of the interview however about Sony and the Blu-Ray format. Apparently Sony has put their foot down and has changed the Blu-Ray format to include a new 3D mode or something and has excluded previous versions.

According to Andrew

“In a way, it’s a shame that Sony has said, "This is the new standard, and this is all we’re going with." But it needed to happen. It needed someone to just clean it up and say, "It’s one standard." It’s really good. It makes sense for everyone. There are only a couple products out there that it will really affect.”

I agree with him that there should only be one Blu-Ray standard but I thought that was the case already, did I miss something?

    I can already see the sea of little kiddies and adults dancing to the beat of an epileptic seizure.

    “Ah that Timmy, such a jovial child”

    There are already LCD screens that you don’t need glasses for to view 3d.

    3D is definitely the future they are refining it all the time. Avatar was a brilliant 3d example, hopefully other studios follow it and don’t just use cheap tricks in their 3d.
