More Stereo 3D Content for the PlayStation 3 Coming from Sony

March 22nd, 2011 · 9 Comments · General 3D News

Apparently Sony has serious plans for pushing more stereoscopic 3D content to the PlayStation 3 consoles this year and we are not talking about games with support for stereo 3D, but movies as well. On the PlayStation blog Sony has shared the above inforgraphic showing some interesting information about the notable 3D content coming in 2011 to the PS3. By the end of 2011 there should be nearly 30 stereo 3D-capable games available with some major sequels such as Uncharted 3, Socom 4 and Killzone 3. And apparently more and more people are adopting 3D-capable HDTVs as the information that 20% of the Killzone 3 single player demo downloads were in 3D hints. Of course just 20% isn’t that big of a number, but then again you should also take into account the fact that the number of PlayStation 3 users is much, much higher as compared to the ones that already have a 3D HDTV. Another interesting thing is the number of downloads of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011: The 3-D Experience Exclusive Sneak Peek has generated, 83 thousand in one week… again not that big of a number, but apparently Sony thinks it is a good one. Aside from the Blu-ray 3D movie playback that the PS3 supports, Sony is also going to be pushing more downloadable stereo 3D content over the PlayStation Network this year…

Be Careful With the 3D-capable LCD Monitors Supporting HDMI 1.4a

February 11th, 2011 · 26 Comments · Other S3D Tech

Acer is the first company that already has a 3D-capable LCD monitor with support for stereo 3D over HDMI 1.4a and this is the model Acer HS244HQ (it uses only HDMI) and will have two more models that will have stereo 3D support over both Dual-Link DVI and HDMI 1.4a – the Acer GN245HQ and Acer HN274H. This for a lot of people automatically means that they would be able to replace the need of a 3D HDTV with one of these 3D LCD monitors, but this is not entirely true. You should be for example able to connect any 3D-capable device that outputs stereo 3D content using the frame packaging method defined in the HDMI 1.4(a) specification such as a PlayStation 3 console. But you will not be able to use an Xbox 360 console in 3D mode with games that do have native stereoscopic 3D support with the reason for that being the fact that the Xbox 360 can output stereo 3D in various formats, but not in the frame packaged format. Usually the Xbox 360 uses Side by Side output and that is something that you can manually switch from a 3D HDTV, but not from the any of the mentioned above monitors as the do no have built-in support for any of these additional modes. So again, a word of warning when you are planning what to buy – a 3D HDTV or a 3D-capable monitor with support for HDMI 1.4a, based on what you are going to use it for…
