Nintendo’s 3DS had a really good showing at E3. It caused stampedes of gamers trying to get in to the long queues to play the device. By all accounts it works – and it works really well.
Despite that, and despite not actually seeing or using the device himself, Sony’s Kaz Hirai has downplayed the technology, calling it imprecise.
Speaking in an interview with Sankei Biz, the Sony executive said "In in-house research, naked eye 3D for portable machines is not high and there are presently limits for it."
His comments seem to indicate that Sony won’t be following the same route – and the PSP2 won’t be a 3D enabled console. Naturally though, Hirai seemed a little more upbeat with regards to Sony’s own 3D technology. â€œWith such things as a strengthened 3D-compatible software lineup, we aim to increase hardware sales,â€ said Hirai of the PS3.
As a side note, if you’re unaware – you can try Sony’s 3D gaming – as well as Playstation Move – at Sandton City. The 3D gaming is neat, but I’m not yet convinced it’s worth the financial outlay just yet. Move is cool too, but not as accurate as I’d imagined, although that may have a lot to do with the setup and calibration there.
