3D gaming emerged earlier during the PS3 and Xbox 360 generation and while much anticipation was present during its debut, many gamers have moved on and have learned to ignore 3D functionality. The main issue with 3D gaming on current video game consoles is the fact that the hardware present within both the PS3 and Xbox 360 were not designed with 3D gaming in mind. The idea of 3D gaming evolved during the lifecycle of both consoles and was forced upon hardware that could not support the load efficiently.
While there are a few titles to pull off 3D well such as Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Super Stardust HD, and MotorStorm: Apocalypse, for the most part, 3D gaming experiences on current consoles are subpar, but may this change when Sony and Microsoft approach the market with their next consoles?
Watch as I discuss the idea of building the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 from the ground up with 3D gaming in mind. Is this an aspect of gaming you would like to see more focus on next generation, or would you like to see the resources used elsewhere?
