Gears of War 3 adds 3D support, we await Gears of War 3-D re-titling

Gears of War 3 is the latest game to leverage its numerical modifier by adding 3D support (first pioneered by classic films like Jaws 3-D and SpyKids 3-D), and joins other participants like Killzone 3, Uncharted 3, and Resistance 3. "It felt like something we wanted to have. It was a feature we didn't want to be deficient in," Gears producer Rod Fergusson told Eurogamer. "When you look at Gears 1, it was what people used to demo HD at the time."

Ironically enough, the tradeoff for 3D support in Gears 3 will be sub-HD resolutions. "Instead of 720p you're at five something," Fergusson said. "It's a little bit jaggier in certain areas." If it sounds weird to hear an Epic employee suggesting that an Epic game is anything less than a technology high-water mark, there's a reason for it: 3D support "was something that came in really late in our process," Fergusson explained. Instead of building in 3D support from the ground up, Epic instead opted for a post-processing effect that "generally works," he said. The technology is most likely TriOviz, which was accepted into Unreal Engine's Integrated Partners Program last year.

Fergusson says while 3D is still "a niche feature" we'll begin to see better support for it on the Xbox. "As you look forward, in the next [Xbox Development Kit] coming out of the Xbox, it'll have more support for 3D or more higher quality for native support for 3D," Fergusson said. "Moving forward, the Xbox will be able to take it further." And we're sure Epic and its ubiquitous Unreal Engine will be right alongside.

No thanks

is it an option or am I stuck with  an ungly looking game because I am not going to get 3D glasses and people need to realize that 3D sucks and u should not waste your money on any new media tech other than holograms.

Unless you can change your eyes to only see green and red you will need glasses

I didn't see that it said support. Annd yeah they could have done 3D only because alot of companies are jumping on that bandwagon.  Also Iron Man 2 really are u just trying to get the achievements?

LMAO....some people. If anyone really thinks that it would be 3D only, they are a dumbass. Even 3D blu-ray movies aren't 3D only.

i agree,  but why would anyone want to spend extra on a gimmick that actually doesn't male things look like it's flying at you in the first place? it just makes things painful and out of focus.

Dang man, Mods patrolling this place hard.  No wonder we all left.
