Sony Pushing 3D Too Aggressively
Posted on Tuesday, November 23 @ 10:37:58 Eastern by Nicholas Tan
SCEE studio director Mick Hocking, at this week's Develop in Liverpool conference, continues to celebrate the support of 3D game development by the industry:
He goes further to describe Sony's involvement with the industry:
Whoa, whoa, hold on there, Mr. Hocking. I think you're missing something important here. I can see the point that adding more 3D-ready content to the Sony lineup will bump up the interest of consumers, but that's not what they care about. They just don't have the money to afford a new 3D TV as well as 3D glasses (and for families, that's multiple pairs of glasses).
Even the bundles Sony is hawking on their site that pair a large 3D TV with a 160GB PS3 system, after a hefty discount, still costs $1700. If I keep by standard HDTV, I could purchase a PS3, Xbox 360 Slim, Wii, DSi, and PSP with pretty much all of the standard controllers, motion controllers, and largest hard drives available - and perhaps a few games and movies - with that kind of money.
Or I could invest it in a high-yield money market fund that will compound over 25 years and then spend it during a time when 3D TVs are actually affordable (and when the PS6 and Xbox 1440 are out).
