Make no mistake about it, I love optimism, and while there have been several detractors regarding the Nintendo 3DS, I have always wondered why many aren’t realizing what we are actually witnessing: the first generation 3D gaming device that will undoubtedly lead to massive changes in the industry. Sony sees what we’re talking about, and Mick Hocking of Sony London Studios obviously has 3D on his mind. In mentioning the current 3D landscape, he mentions that the future of 3D as a “creative medium” will continue to push what we believe, as gamers, is possible.
I couldn’t agree more, as I’ve told everyone that the 3DS has offered so much beyond the gaming experience of the console itself. That being said, I love my 3DS and haven’t had any issue with the release. Sony apparently plans on integrated 3D technology with the Playstation Move, so things like Resistance 3should begin to show us what is in store for 3D gaming.
Properly understanding where we are in 3D technology can help consumers accurately project where things will be in a few years. Sure, we’re starting to see plenty of glasses-free 3D units, but it will take time to perfect. After all, flat screens underwent a similar trial by fire.
