Nintendo and Sony have clear plans for the oncoming 3D wave. What’s Microsoft doing about it?

 

“We’re watching the situation, the Xbox 360 itself already supports 3D games, so preparations are made,” explained Takashi Sensui, General Manager of Microsoft’s Xbox division in Japan in an interview with Nikkei’s TrendyNet.

 

When asked about the Nintendo 3DS, Sensui had an optimistic reply. “I think it is an extremely good experiment. 3D games are suited for the play environment of portable machines. It’s relatively easy to realize a 3D environment space because the viewpoint and screen distance are nearly fixed.”

    So that pretty much supports the whole “ruffle screen” thing I’ve been talking about I guess, since that requires the fixed viewpoint and screen distance.

    Sensui-san’s a pretty cool dude, I’ve seen him done so many presentations in the last several years :) I certainly don’t mind 3D, but definitely would wait a bit for the technology to be ironed out before buying a new 3D TV..
