  • Sony explains why PS VITA doesn't have 3D

    Sony has finally explained the reason behind why upcoming handheld console PS VITA doesn't have 3D. In an interview to GameSpot, Michael Hocking suggested that glasses-free 3D gaming only works when keeping your head still and this takes away VITA's SixAxis motion functionally.

    PS VITA

    "We wanted to offer a really, really high-resolution OLED screen, and the best way to do that was in 2D. At least for the first one," he said.

    Hocking also mentioned about 3D support in general quoting, "A message we’ve been giving to all of our PS3 developers is add 3D where it adds something to the game. It’s not a tickbox we want on all the game boxes; we want 3D to add to the experience. The other really important thing is to do it well,"

    According to us another reason PS VITA does not have 3D, is because of 3DS, it is most likely that Sony want to consumers another reason to purchase PS VITA other than 3D because they want them to buy PS3 for 3D.

  • Fix for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D save file issue

    There was huge hue and cry by fans of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, when Capcom decided not to include "Delete Save" functionality for the game. However "Siliconera" has found a way out to erase the save data after all.

    According to Siliconera, an adaptor called as "NDS Adaptor Plus" will do this trick for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D gamers. NDS Adaptor Plus is a small device which is designed to back up DS and 3DS save files to PC, and it carries a price tag of $40.

  • Naughty Dog: Best way to play Uncharted 3 is in 3D

    No doubt, the next game in Uncharted franchise, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is one of the most anticipated game title for all PS3 out there. Naughty Dog has already confirmed that the game will have support for 3D technology when it launches this November.

    Uncharted 3 screenshot

    In an interview to GameInformer, Evan Well has said that the best way to play Uncharted 3 is in 3D.

    Evan said, "The game designers have to be conscious of it when they’re scripting their cameras to show where Drake has to go next when he’s climbing up a pole or we’re showing off a vista. The designers have to go in there to set the 3D convergence points. You have to make sure you’re transitioning smoothly between convergence points because if you do it too suddenly or rapidly it can cause eye strain. We have to render our cutscenes in 3D and 2D so it doubles the amount of space we’ve got on the disc for video so it’s mandated that we go to a dual-layer disc this time. It really did have a ripple effect across every aspect of development, but in the end, I still fully think it’s been a great addition to the game and will be the best way to play the game."

    However in our opinion, playing Uncharted 3 with or without 3D will be one hell of an experience. What you guys think.

  • Report: Xbox 360 to get full 3D support

    Accroding to reports coming out from Eurogamer, at E3 2011, Microsoft will announced that Xbox 360 will be receiving full stereoscopic 3D support.

    The console already runs number of 3D titles for example Treyarch's COD: Black Ops and Crytek's Crysis 2, but until now they haven't run on true stereoscopic tech. This new update for Xbox 360 will enable the console to output full 720p image to each eye.

    Xbox 360

    An anonymous source said, "The machine is not only very capable, it's more capable than the PlayStation 3 of doing stereo,"

    [That's] assuming you don't have one of the old crappy ones with the composite leads... assuming you have a HDMI Xbox.

    "The bottleneck is more on the graphical throughput for rendering out in stereo. E3 is coming up. Microsoft is going to have to go on stage to say something, aren't they?"
