James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game in Stereo 3D – How and When?

Ok, we all know and have heard a lot how great the upcoming James Cameron’s Avatar movie will be, be we have to wait until 16th-18th December before we can actually see the movie in 3D, but a little bit before that will come a game based on the movie. Now James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game is supposed to be also Stereo 3D compatible and playable on S3D capable hardware like Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision (at least for the PC version), but probably the top two consoles – Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will also have some sort of 3D mode. Now what puzzles me a lot is that there is a complete lack of information on what to expect from the game, but there is a lot of information about the movie… hell the game is supposed to be out before the movie and to serve as to some sort of good promotion for it, but that is only if you know that there is going to be a game based on the movie. The game is supposed to come out on 24th of November for all of the following consoles: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Sony PSP, Nintendo DS and on 1st of December the PC version should come out. Actually the PC version is the most interesting one, because we all hope and expect that it will be 3D Vision compatible, meaning it will not only work in Stereo 3D, but will also look great out of the box. Unfortunately there is still no information coming from either Nvidia or Ubisoft on Stereo 3D support like there is already a lot of talk about the upcoming Resident Evil 5 game for PC, which will be the first 3D Vision optimized title. The official website of the game not only lacks updates, but there is even not enough of the essential information about the game that everyone is looking for and there are just a little more than 3 months left before the game actually comes out on the market. The guys making the game are keeping everything a total secret and nothing more that just some talk on what to generally expect and some game art are circling around. There is no official trailer or anything that even seems to be like gameplay footage available so you don’t actually know what to expect and this at the end may turn to have more negative that the probably expected positive effect. After all nowadays most of the people expect to have at least some general idea on what are they giving their money for before doing so, in order to not be completely disappointed afterwards that they were totally mislead… ;)

Disney’s G-Force Game and the Expected 3D Support

Some time ago I’ve written about some interesting upcoming games that are expected to have official 3D Stereo support available in them in the form of anaglyph or 3D Vision S3D support and Disney’s G-Force game was among them. Now the game is out and it really disappointed a lot of people expecting it to be good in 3D especially when combined with Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision kit simply because the PC version doesn’t support any form of stereo 3D – not in anaglyph or 3D Vision. Now we did not expect to have some sort of a great game coming out for something that is based on a movie, because most of the movie-based games are coming out to be average at best with lot of them raging from total bullshit to something that might be considered for a good time waster. You can say that Disney’s G-Force is below the average, but still might be fun for some kids to play it and the thing that might’ve made it worth playing was the expected 3D Stereo support which did not happen for the PC version of the game… why?

Anyway, you should be aware that Disney’s G-Force Game is available with versions for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS and Sony PSP so you can pretty much get it and play it on any of these. But if you want to be able to play the game in Stereoscopic 3D mode you need to get either PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions of the game, because only they come with anaglyph glasses and the needed mode to play with it. If you own a PC and buy the game to play it with Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision you will be disappointed so please do not buy it just for that – save your money and the trouble. And there is on anaglyph mode available for the PC version so even if you wanted to try it out with anaglyph glasses you are screwed so just don’t bother with G-Force anymore and get your fingers crossed for the release of Resident Evil 5 for PC and that it will really rock in S3D as we all hope and as Nvidia and Capcom says.

And if you are still not really ready to give up completely on Disney (hey you are not a small kid anymore, right?) you might get some hopes from the fact that in the fall they should release another Stereo 3D-ready game title. This time it will be exclusive for Nintendo Wii console owners and the game is called Toy Story Mania!, and you probably guessed it will be based on the movie with the same title from 1995, but the game is expected to also feature anaglyph stereo 3D experience.
