Sony Pushing The PS3 Past Current 3D Tech
Posted on Wednesday, November 24 @ 10:29:17 Eastern by Anthony Severino
3D has already conquered cinema and now it's moving into your home. Sony is at the forefront of the budding technology, selling an array of stereoscopic 3DTVs and 3D Blu-ray players - even providing the hi-tech camera's necessary to capture 3D footage. Sony's flagship game console, the PS3, is easily the best value 3D Blu-ray player on the market and it plays 3D games to boot. It's quite obvious that Sony is aggressively pushing for a ton of 3D content, however, Sony isn't satisfied with your so-called normal, run-of-the-mill stereoscopic 3D PS3 games.
According to Sony's director of SCE World-Wide Studio's 3D Stereoscopic Team, Mick Hocking, they still have plenty more 3D tricks up their sleeve, including holographic games.
“There’s lots to come. â€¨â€¨This isn’t just about adding 3D to the PS3 – there’s a whole wave of new technologies and techniques that make use of 3D and the 3D hardware that we can use to enhance our games with in the future."Hocking continued, revealing Sony's plans to revolutionize local multiplayer:
“In regards to that we have some new technology that we’ve shown to developers that uses 3D techniques, it allows two players to play full screen multi-player games but without each being able to see the others view, and they have been massively keen on them,”Analysts suggest that holographic TVs are at least 7 years off, so either the PS3 is going to be around for a long time, or they're already thinking about the PS4. Either way, we're happy to see new features being brewed.
