3D Gaming Didn’t Catch On, According to Electronic Arts
Well, the 3D bubble is burst, since the 3D phones and tablets didn’t sell well at all and not so many 3D games were made lately, to be honest. Electronic Arts said it clearly, when they claimed that 3D gaming has no traction right now. The concept of a 3D HDTV sounds great, but in real life it’s not that good, since there’s not much you can use it for.
The gaming area is not well covered at all, when it comes to tridimensional graphics. EA goes as far as saying that 3D is not on their list of things to be focused on in the future. Sony’s European PlayStation leader Jim Ryan seemed more keen on this technology, as he promised to offer support for stereoscopic 3D for gaming on the PS3. Nintendo 3DS has failed to take off and nobody wants to be caught squinting in front of a small screen while trying to have fun.
I’d much rather have the Retina Display to blow my mind, than simulate some flimsy 3D wannabe graphics on portable devices. First, gives us good resolutions, great screen panels and battery. Then we can talk about 3D, okay?
