Statistics On 3D Gaming Interest

image3D gaming is getting buzz with the Nintendo 3DS on the horizon and Sony’s recent firmware update. But, do gamers really want it?


The CEA, you know the company that produces the Consumer Electronics Show, conducted a study on the interest of 3D gaming and announced the results at the LA Games Conference.


Here’s what they found out.


  • 1 in 4 interested in home 3D video game experience.


  • 1 in 2 people who saw a 3D movie in the last 12 months are interested in playing 3D games at home.


  • 1 in 5 say playing video games in 3D would be their primary reason for buying a 3DTV.


Within twelve months, Nintendo will release the Nintendo 3DS, a handheld with a 3D screen that doesn’t require glasses. Sony is preparing 3D versions of games like Motorstorm 2 (pictured), Super Stardust HD, and Gran Turismo 5. Microsoft has not announced any plans for 3D gaming so far.

    I definitely want to try it out. I haven’t personally seen how well this home 3D works but if the technology is good enough I think there’s a lot of interesting things they could do with games designed specifically with 3D in mind.

    But not every game will need it, and I’m sure they’re going to try and shoehorn 3D into everything if it becomes popular. So that will suck.

  • If you can’t make it good, make it 3D.

    Not me. I really hope the 3DS has some sort of 2d mode you can use instead.

  • Jirin

    I have no problem with this so long as you don’t *have* to play them in 3d to play the game. I got kind of a headache watching Avatar.

  • Aoshi00

    I want 3D movies and gaming. Once you go fresh you can’t go back to canned, it’s just the next step of evolution.
