Sony:PS3 Might Go 3D in 2010

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony:PS3 Might Go 3D in 2010

"

At the exhibition site, Sony demonstrated 3D images by adding a special filter composed of a number of right and left circular polarization filters on the display and using circular polarized glasses manufactured by Real D of the US.

However, it does not mean that Sony has decided to employ this method.

"We are currently developing several methods," Shimazu said. "We used this method for the demonstration simply because we made another demonstration with Real D's projector for business use and decided to use the same glasses for the home-use display. Also, this method displays right and left images simultaneously and was the most appropriate for the LCD panel with a frame frequency of 120Hz or less."

joystiq hands on impressions:

 

"The effect was shockingly good in the demo loop of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, WipEout HD and Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. Seeing debris and opposing vehicles actually fly towards us instead of appearing to fly towards us is as much of a graphical leap forward as any console iteration of the past decade.

When we handed back our borrowed glasses (like good citizens) we have to admit it was with a little sadness. To see the future that closely and to know it's still a long ways out makes the waiting that much worse. Tomorrow can't get here soon enough.

They are always trying to differentiate themselves, I like that, good going Sony!



                                                                                                                                            

I think this is actually the beginning of a 3D TV format battle as there was at least one other company, Panasonic, at CES showing off a 3D display TV -- they also got on CNBC to talk about it.

^^^this is not the TV doing the effects,,,,this is PS3 doing the effects on regular tv.



 

 

 

The display that it is shown on is special, it can generate polarized light. The PS3 just outputs to it. Your standard LCD can not do this.

 

EDIT: More specifically it generates more than a single direction of polarized light unlike your regular LCD which is just a single direction.

I remember 3D games in the arcades, one was called 'hologram' and it was full 3D ona flat semi circle table right in front of you and viewable by everyone around without the need for any 3D spectacles.

Great idea but the game was aweful but this was almost 20 years ago, so creating a 3D game is not exactly a new concept.

Only just remembered this and to my surprise it was made by SEGA.

Hmm.. Interesting! How I would love to play horror genres in 3d. Might be actually fun!



@small flying taco^^so what is the point of making PS3 3D when no one can use it in 2010?the link says the future 3D can be used with regular LCD with 120HZ or less freq.

But he said this:
