Play 3D Games: A Guide To 3D Gaming On The Television And PC
With all this talk of 3D TV sets for Christmas 2010, many people are desperate to find out how they can play 3D games on the TV and on the PC. 3D gaming can create experiences that most of us have never thought possible, and for many it’ll be available right away. Here’s a quick guide to everything you need to know about 3D gaming.
How To Play 3D Games On The Playstation 3
If you’re into your console games and want to experience the latest technology then you’re going to need a Sony Playstation 3. And, no – you won’t need to buy a new console to experience the new 3D capabilities!
All Playstation 3 systems are already equipped to be able to handle 3D games, thanks to a firmware update that was downloadable for free earlier on in the year. If you haven’t already, make sure that your Playstation console is up to date when you connect it to your new 3D TV. There’s absolutely no charge for this service! Of course, you’re going to have to have a 3D television to display the games properly.
Sony are even giving away Playstation 3 games and demos with some of the 3D capable television sets. Some of the demos and full games include:
* WipEout HD,
For the very best gaming experience, Playstation 3 3D games can be combined with the new controller – Playstation Move – to experience gaming in a completely new way. One of the latest Move games, “The Fight: Lights Out”, will also be available in 3D.
And, if you want to watch 3D movies on your PS3, another firmware update is available to allow you to do just that!
nVidia’s 3D Vision gaming system either comes with just the 3D glasses and infrared transmitter, or with a 3D monitor if you don’t yet have one. The whole system will allow you to play 3D games on your PC.
This works in exactly the same way as 3D on your TV – a slightly different image will be delivered to each eye, which the glasses will let you see in 3D. Some of the main features of nVidia’s glasses include:
* A wide viewing angle for 3D,
* Excellent operation for 3D and 2D gaming,
* Adjustable fit.
There are already a wide number of games ready to be played with this technology – just look for games that carry the nVidia 3D logo and you’ll know that they will display perfectly with your new hardware.
If you remember back to the first time 3D was introduced to the gaming world, you may be skeptical about how much it can really add to your experience now. But 3D has come very far in the last few years, which we can all see in its popularity in movie theatres. When you play 3D games it really will change the experience forever.
