    Oh gods no.

    No.

    Just no.

    Games in 3D? How in the blue blazes will playing games that the general consumer plays like Wii Fit/Tetris/Pong/Brain Age enhance the entertainment experience?!

    Let's just hope this doesn't ruin all production value, photography, cinematography etc. as has been the case in the film industry.

    If the good aspects of games nowadays (overall good graphics, good storyline, good gameplay etc) don't get diminished by this move, then I'm not too fussed.

    I'm not all that bothered by watching films in 3D (especially since I sometimes experience motion sickness when watching some parts of 3D films!!), however as long as it's not like most games try to implement 3D and mess up the 'important' parts of games, I don't mind too much.

    3D is fine and all, but it adds about 2% to the overall experience if done well, and can massively detract if done badly (see Clash of the Titans remake).

    Given games offer a much more 3D experience than a film by the sheer nature of the medium (Doom feels more 3D than Avatar did, just because you can move around), I'm highly unsure of what it would bring to the table in anything other than a funky graphical effect.

    Can't say im a fan of 3D..

    This is a perfect example of other technologies, that should be chosen instead..

    3D makes sense on a massive cinema screen, but it's virtually useless on normal-sized TVs.

    I disagree - 3d looks great - though you dont realy want to play with it on very often.

    Yeah, I saw Avatar in 2D and in 3D at an IMAX. I found the IMAX screen way too big and after about an hour or so I started to feel my eyes straining. Thinking about it I should have sat as far back as possible, that may have helped. All that being said, it was amazing in 3D at the IMAX!

    Ah you beat me to it, this is the kind of thing I would like to see microsoft come out with the Natal (since, I believ, that is able to identify and track your head, something that isnt essential to the game but gives it a "wow" factor without overcomplicating the game

    Playing FPS and being able to peek round corners by leaning rather than pressing a button would add to the immersion of the game. Getting a 3D teabag in halo would not....

    How does 3D work for those who are blind in one eye like my friend? Its a step forward bringing 3D to the home market but its 2 steps backwards letting "non arrogant" sony do it. TBH tho, like blu ray, games consoles is the way to push adoption. I hope ATI start to push 3D for themselves.

    Unfortunately it doesn't! Your friend will just see a 2D image.

    I've found this site that will show you if you can see in 3D!

    Glad to see 3D catching on. I hope all the whiners will give gaming in 3D a try before bashing it.

    Ive not had the "pleasure" of 3D yet but as long as they have an "On/Off" mode in the game then great, Im all for moving forward. Just dont want the bollox of either buying the 3D or normal version of the game, just gimme vanilla with the option for a sprinkling of 3D.
