I can't wait for the graphics card that can deliver Crysis at 120 FPS.
Am I the only one who is not 'feeling' this whole 3D vibe?
As for Crysis in 3D - you can't polish a turd. Unless the sequel is going to be a radical departure from the original, both in terms of gameplay and in terms of hardware requirements I'm not even batting an eyelid.
I'm planning to build a system in the £500-600 bracket, based around a Core i3, using the integrated graphics. If a game cannot run reasonably well on it, it fails in my books. Especially when you consider that you can get a console with all the trimmings for half the price.
I can never watch anything in 3D anyway, so me don't care
Still focussing on the technology and ignoring the gameplay.
ill be happy only with 60 constant fps
Someone has got to put the tech in, the more things that support it, the more likely people will develop the next-gen 3D hardware, which might actually be decent!
as useless as 3D movies...
Nope. 3D definitely almost works in cinema, but even there the edge of the screen breaks the immersion for me.
3D is a bandwagon and unfortunately Hollywood have gotten everyone to jump onboard - publishers and hardware developers - in the simple hope that here is the next big thing to make money out of and it might also help reduce piracy due to the technical limitations.
But I just don't see it taking off in the home. The hardware outlay is a big issue, plus having to wear the 3D glasses, if you can find them down the back of the sofa. Then you have the fact that the relative screen size is factors smaller than even the cinema experience and immersion will be almost zero.
Even if you do want to see 3D TV or 3D gaming in action you can't just walk into a shop and ponder it like you could with HD - in my city at least you have to wait for one of the brand retailers (Pioneer, Sony etc) to have a special 'open day' to showcase it. I guess they're too worried about people stealing the glasses or trying to watch it without glasses not realising what it is and being disappointed to have it on all the time.
After that amazing E3 demo, I'm really confused.
Crytek have managed to get that level of graphical fidelity running on consoles, together with the 3D rendering overhead and at a steady framerate?
Are they coding gods?
great... well apart from the fact that hl2 is already great in 3d...
it was actually a shame crysis wasnt all that good in 3d
I haven't heard of a single consumer excited for 3d, seriously doubt there's much money in it. Don't really appreciate it being forced on us just because manufacturers can't think of anything more exciting.
Everyone everywhere seems to be pushing 3D at the moment, TV, PC's even some phones. I wonder if its part of a larger conspiracy for the reverse engieered holographic alien technology being release in the next few years
..Strive to raise the technology bar?
By using Stereoscopic 3D?
They do realise that stereoscopy has been around for a shade over 150 years, right?
3D? Pointless fad-tastic!
Seriously though, will this be Nvidia only?
Wonder how much Nvidia/Sony paid them to say this.
Sorry, my bad. I was thinking that they were using Nvidia's 120Hz 3D tech. Stereoscopic 3D is the Avatar glasses 3D.
Can it play....oh hmmmm
Will it support eyefinity too?
