I have a big collection of 3D Blu-ray movies, as well as 3D Xbox 360 games. More and more movies are being made and released in 3D as well, and I hope this truly will be "A single device for all your entertainment" by including 3D Blu-ray and 3D gaming capabilities.
I'm concerned about this as well. When you do a reveal, you use all the tech jargon and buzz words you can. Their failure to say "3D blu ray" makes me quite worried. Its a make or break for me. I also have the Astro A50 headset and noted the lack of a 2.5mm jack on the controller. HOPEFULLY it can pair with the Xbox just as it does a PC and they ditched the necessity for the 3.5 to 2.5 mm jumper. Which was annoying anyways. FINGERS CROSSED EVERYTHING ELSE LOOKS SWEET.
I believe supporting 3-D just requires having enough bandwidth since 3-D movies are usually double the FPS. So both systems should have no problem.
5 years ago 3-D was all the hype. Now most people don't care about it. Even at the big technology conventions, they hardly mention 3-D. I'm not surprised if neither Sony nor Microsoft make much mention of it.
I USED to feel that way about 3d ... then in Sept 2013 I saw a 3d movie demo at Costco of the new Vizio 80 inch that uses local LED dimming and PASSIVE 3d glasses ... the same cheap disposable glasses that Real3d uses at the theaters (for some reason, IMAX passive glasses do not work). Anyway, 3d on a big screen is a game changer...such a game changer that this plasma snob bought a giant LCD TV....now I have an IMAX in my livingroom and 3d movies can be rented from 3D-Blurayrental.com. My adult kids that could PREVIOUSLY give a crap about 3d NOW "gasp and swoon" over this 80 inch displaying a 3d movie ... it really is a game changer. Everyone that sees it in my house agrees ... this 3d thing on a large screen is the thing to have when you want to sit down and enjoy a movie or a game. Now...I am an old guy that is not supposed to warm up to THE NEW very easily...but to give you an idea of how far out I am ... I was stationed overseas when the first video game PONG came out. 3d movies can be rented at 3D-Blurayrental.com. Have some fun !
Thanks for the link. Mine was already on Day One pre-order, but I had been mildly trepidatious about the decision until this very moment. Now, since my 3D Blu-ray player is also my surround sound receiver, I have just one more issue to resolve...
