Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Comments On Glasses-Free 3D

Sony’s foray into the world of 3D video games is with 3DTVs, glasses, and PlayStation 3 games like Killzone 3. Comparatively, Nintendo has the Nintendo 3DS, a handheld that doesn’t require glasses for holographic 3D effects.

What does Sony have to say about the competition? Without mentioning the Nintendo 3DS specifically, Kaz Hirai, President of Sony Computer Entertainment, commented on the technology.

 

"A portable with naked eye 3D does not have high precision, according to internal research," Hirai said in an interview with Sankei Biz. "Presently, there are limits." This statement was made before Hirai saw the Nintendo 3DS, which was on display, with a two-plus-hour line to see it, at Nintendo’s E3 booth.

 

Hirai believes the PlayStation 3’s 3DTV compatible software will boost sales of their console. Sony bundled 3D ready versions of Super Stardust HD, Wipeout HD, and a demo of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift to consumers who purchased a Bravia 3DTV this past month.
