Sega interested in ‘heavy’ 3D investments

Sega is jumping on the 3D bandwagon. The extra dimension is to be the next big thing in gaming, the company’s head of entertainment Naoya Tsurumi believes.

“I believe 3D will become a big wave,” he told Nikkei Trendy in an ‘keyman’ interview series, as translated by Andriasang.

The executive praises Nintendo’s upcoming 3D-enabled handheld, the tentatively named 3DS, saying it’s “a landmark hardware” that Sega would like to “invest heavily in”.

Supporting home consoles with 3D-enabled games is also something Tsurumi says the company’s interested in — “definitely” even — but believes their success in that field to depend on the spread of 3D televisions.
