Do you have your 3D-enabled HDTV yet? If not, you should know a whole lot of PlayStation 3 games will have that feature in the near future…
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe studio director Mick Hocking told Develop that interactive gaming in 3D isn't merely a passing fad; indeed, developers are readying a slew of compatible titles. "We're applying 3D to more than 20 internal games at Sony," said Hocking. "Overall we have more than 50 titles currently being coverted into 3D, and this number is growing fast." Some super high-profile games will have the benefit of this advanced technology, including next year's Killzone 3 , along with other titles like that ICO Collection .
Gran Turismo 5 , which launches today, is another one that boasts 3D so if you've got the means, you'll definitely want to see what such games look like when displayed in that extra dimension. Hocking added:
"We're actively talking to developers and publishers, and we're also offering training to them to help them get up to speed with 3D. 3D isn't just about adding depth to a picture–developers need to know how to get the very best out of the technology on PS3 and we'll ensure that they do."
There has been talk about how 3D has a negative impact on resolution and game performance (i.e., frame rate), but perhaps that's something certain developers will deal with better than others. The technology is definitely in its infancy so we'll have to see what happens down the road.
