3D Explained

This article has a nice, though lengthy, explanation of just what's happening with various 3D display technologies as they relate to gaming, both good and bad.Yeah, if only it was like the picture up above. Unfortunately, what I glean between the lines of hype from 3D Display promoters is that this technology is a long way from being in every living room. Look, even HDTV only has about 60% penetration in the US, and many of those folks aren't going to drop thousands of dollars on a new TV just yet. Not for the thrill of watching all of 6 titles available in 3D... assuming you have a 3D capable Blu-ray player, that is. 3D programming over satellite or cable? Not for quite some time to come. 3D display as an integral part of a game? That may be a while in coming, too.

It's fun to speculate about new technologies, but if you're interested in what's going to have a major impact on the gaming industry in the next few years, 3D Display isn't it.
