2010 was a big year for 3D, but excepting a few movies you paid extra to view through paper-framed glasses, you probablymissed most of it.For those with the cash, however,Sony and third-partiesmanaged to put out an impressive number of 3D-capable games for the PS3 this year.
A new post at the PlayStation Blog has the definitive list of every PS3 game that received some kind of support for the new stereoscopic 3D standard. To enjoy the feature, you had to have a brand new 3D TV, which only began being sold in April of this year, as well as a pair of $150 3D glasses, and a high-speed HDMI cable.
In total, 18 games made use of the expensive new toys for your living room. Here's the list:
1. Call of Duty: Black Ops
2. Enslaved: Journey to the West
4. The Fight: Lights Out
5. Gran Turismo 5
6. High Velocity Bowling
7. Hustle Kings
8. James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game
9. MotorStorm: 3D Rift
10. NBA 2K11
12. Prince of Persia Trilogy
13. The Sly Collection
14. Super Stardust HD
15. Swords and Soldiers
16. TRON: Evolution
18. WipEout HD
And here are some more stats on the PS3's slate of 3D games:
- 11 of the 18 are packaged, Blu-ray Disc games (7 are downloadable)
- 11 of the 18 are first-party Sony games (7 came from third-party publishers)
- 11 of the 18 had 3D support natively integrated (7 received 3D patches after release)
Huh,11-7 split for all of those metrics... and each one is a different combination of games. Weird. Anyway, there are dozens more 3D games on their way to the PS3, including Killzone 3, Uncharted 3, and Crysis 2.
While it may be years and years before a majority of users even have a 3D TV, you've got to hand it to Sony for at least trying to push the technological envelope, even if not everyone is on board.
Have you played a game in stereoscopic 3D? If so, did you like it?
