Now, imagine my monstrous avatar coming out of the TV at you! That's right! COWER IN FEAR!
Executive Producer Rod Fergusson told interviewers at a Gears of War 3 event that the upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive would support the option of playing in stereoscopic 3D. The developer said:
We asked, could we do it? It felt like something we wanted to have. It was a feature we didn't want to be deficient in. When you look at Gears 1, it was what people used to demo HD at the time. It's still fledgling technology. It's still a niche feature. But it was something we could support, so we felt, why not?
It was something that came in really late in our process. It wasn't something where we said, OK, we're going to design the game from the ground up for 3D. It was more of a post-process 3D, where we're like, OK, certain things need to be adjusted, but for the most part it generally works.This is the result of a nearly 6 month delay. Epic Games didn't sit around on their hands waiting for their release date. This does beg the age-old question though: If a game is in 3D on Xbox 360, does anyone have the TV to see it?
