Sony have been perhaps the strongest supporter of the recent rise in 3D technology, which they made clear at this year’s CES. Seems like their enthusiasm has carried on over to their PlayStation development teams as Ian Bickerstaff, senior engineer with SCE’s UK-based stereoscopic 3D team suggests. When asked how many teams were currently working on 3D projects, he told Gamasutra: “It’s all a bit confidential, but a lot, let’s put it that way. We’ve been amazed by the enthusiasm from the developers.”
Promising words that also come with a hint of caution, “We’re not going to spend crazy, crazy amounts of money [on 3D games] expecting everyone tomorrow to have 3D TVs, clearly. But, we believe this is the future, and three or four years from now, you won’t be able to buy a television that doesn’t have a 3D capability.”
Sony are set to release 3D-enabled Bravia TVs this Summer, how well 3D gaming performs basically depends entirely on how well these TVs perform.
