Sony may have taken the initiative in promoting the three dimensions within videogames for some time now, with many of their back-catalogue of games already having been retro-fitted for 3D (such as within Wipeout HD and Motorstorm: Pacific Rift), their continuing support to produce 3D TV’s and their recent PS3 update that allowed 3D Blu Ray movies to be played in full stereoscopic 3D via the PS3.
But up until now, the 360 has failed to match such ambition, perhaps because of a reluctance to enter into what is a very risky market, or due to technology hindrances. However, it’ll come as a major step forward for Microsoft’s 360 to claw back the momentum with 3D when one of this year’s biggest blockbuster releases, Treyarch‘s Call of Duty: Black Ops, comes available to play in full 3D via any of the platforms it is being released onto (PS3, PC and Xbox 360).
Many of us sadly will not be able to experience what it has to offer however, you’ll need a 3D-ready TV with state-of-the-art shutter glasses for the picture to look anything but a dull and hazy blur. See http://www.callofduty.com/3d for more information.
