The S-3D Gaming Alliance (S3DGA) is a non-profit and non-proprietary organization that is the official voice and standards body for stereoscopic 3D gaming, with its whole reason for existence being to make stereoscopic 3D gaming successful in the home environment. With some of its current members being companies like LG Electronics, RealD, DDD, iZ3D, Blitz Games Studios, and others, the organization is constantly gaining more and more supporters with the latest one being Electronic Arts. And it seems that one by one other game developers are also starting to pay more and more attention to stereoscopic 3D gaming which is definitely a good sign…
