Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition with TriOviz 3D

March 4th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


It seems that we are up for another release of the quite successful title Batman: Arkham Asylum, this time in a Game of the Year Edition for consoles that supposedly will come with TriOviz 3D support (the version for PC is left out without TriOviz 3D support!). The GOTY release for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will come with some sort of 3D glasses using the TriOviz 3D technology, whatever that is, allowing console games to view the game in stereoscopic 3D format on their normal non 3D-ready TVs. TriOviz 3D supposedly offers better results that quite popular cheap red-cyan anaglyph glasses, as this technology developed by the French company TriOviz is designed to offer natural colors and sharp images without any ghosting and also without the discomfort, fatigue, eye strain etc that are typical for the anaglyph glasses after longer use…

TriOviz 3D is a patented 3D process which adds depth to the game, visible to players wearing the included 3D glasses. By leveraging the depth-of-field while maintaining the original gameplay and color integrity, TriOviz 3D creates a far more immersive gaming experience, allowing console players to dive deeper into the gothic world of Arkham Asylum. … TriOviz SDK for Games creates a three-dimensional depth-of-field, negating the need for rendering multiple images or using anaglyph while maintaining content integrity.

This information certainly sounds interesting, especially considering that the official TriOviz website has not a lot of information and Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition appears to be the first implementation for this technology for gaming. I’m interested to test this TriOviz 3D solution, but even at the moment my expectations are not too big as it may turn out to be just some marketing talk with not very satisfying results. After it it is relying on a similar principle like the anaglyph glasses, although it uses different colored filters – magenta and green. Anyway, it seems that we are not going to have to wait much for that as the GOTY edition of the game will be available on March 26th, 2010, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, but only the console versions will be getting the TriOviz 3D treatment.

    It’s just crappy magenta/green anaglyph.

    Here is the part of their site that says so:

    So people who got the more expensive collector’s edition will miss the 3D feature ? good move, you gotta get rewarding loyal customers (the ones who buy 1st day and the most expensive editions out) like this !

    Besides, looks cheap anaglyph. They should update/patch existent game to have 3D even if it’s crap. The problem would be the weird tinted glasses (just got the blue- red ones)

    I Agree. Besides the all hype , it is just a anaglyph. It won’t work in full colored games.
