We asked you about motion control two weeks ago. So now let’s talk about the other “future of gaming.”
Videogame companies sure are confident that they know what the next big thing is going to be. After all, they’ve succeeded so well in the past with the Sega CD, Sega 32x, Sega Activator, Nintendo Virtual Boy, the Game Boy camera, the Super Game Boy, the N64, the GameCube, the PlayStation Eye, the Gizmondo, the NGage, the Nintendo 64DD and the Philips CDi. Yeah, I know I forgot some.
The latest “next big thing” being thrust upon us is 3-D. I don’t know about you, but I’m torn. I have no desire to play console games in 3-D, especially since I play so much split-screen multiplayer. The PS3 can already do it, though. Folks with compatible TVs can give it a whirl. I’d consider going 3-D with my PC. I’m not sure why, but it just feels like the place for it. I have no desire to wear glasses or pay a premium price, but I’m buying a 3DS on day one.
So what do you think, folks? Are you ready for 3-D gaming? Is it even something you want? Do you think developers can accommodate it, or is it just one more stepping stone in the way of making a quality game? Is there potential for 3-D technology to improve games?
I’ve kept the poll answers simple again. After making one option for each answer, I think it started to get far too crowded. So feel free to shout out in the comments.
