I am personally not a fan of 3D anything, but the ultimate 3D gaming experience could be closer than you think. In television and movies, 3D can be dodgy at best. It definitely has the ability to enhance what you are watching. But sometimes it is so random that it can be distracting.
Luckily for us, executing that pesky third dimension is far more effective in video games. Where some movies make awkward layers or the occasional flying implement, video games are more successful at making the whole thing fluid. Live action has a hard time being stretched and layered, where as the animation of a video games is perfect for such technology.
There is a lot coming out that will support 3D gaming. So far, it looks like Sony definitely has the head start. They are releasing games in Europe over the Playstation Network that are compatible with the Sony Bravia 3D TVs. If you purchase one of these televisions, then you are granted temporary passes for the games. There are four titles in all. Some are full games in 3D and others only showcase a single level. One of the latest Playstation firmware updates was one of many steps in prepping the console for 3D game titles.
As for titles, I expected to see a lot of lame games like 3D mini golf. But one of the types I was surprised to hear about was racing. It makes perfect sense for racing to go 3D. I've read a lot of reviews of various industry "sneak peeks" of this game. They all seem to love the fact that it makes you feel like you are really on the race track with cars surrounding you. I was also concerned about RPGs just making swords and arrows randomly point in your face, but the new dimensions make the fight seem more visceral and all encompassing. Combine the ultra graphics with some monster surround sound or Turtle Beach headsets, talk about game-gasm.
It's really hard to tell where games are going with 3D. It is safe to say that Microsoft isn't going to be able to keep up without releasing a new console. The Wii may be facing the same issue. The success of the 3D games also depends on what happens with televisions. Some TVs come with glasses, but soon, you may not even need those. With ever changing technology, it's hard to tell what will be next.
