Stereoscopic technology gets thumbs up from developers and publishers

Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology has received support from across the gaming industry at CES 09, adding momentum to the emergence of stereoscopic display as an affordable reality for consumers.

3D Vision for GeForce combines wireless shutter glasses, an IR emitter and software to provide a consumer 3D display solution that automatically converts hundreds of compatible PC games in to full stereoscopic experiences.

Several developers and display manufacturers have used CES to pledge support for 3D Vision, including group marketing manager at Windows Gaming, Corey Rosemond: “Along with gaming innovations in Microsoft Windows and DirectX, Nvidia 3D Vision proves there’s never been a better time to be a PC gamer. By including support for previously released and upcoming Games for Windows and Games for Windows Live titles, PC gamers can expect a new level of immersion in full stereoscopic 3D, and enjoy broad support for the hottest games.”

Support also came from Capcom’s corporate officer and VP of strategic planning and business development Christian Svensson, and Ubisoft EMEA’s Peter Hammer, who stated: “There is no doubt that stereoscopic 3D is a very interesting step in the realm of 3D technology and it really does offer some impressive enhancements to PC games. From the moment you put on Nvidia 3D Vision glasses the visuals come to life.”
