Resident Evil 5 on PC uses NVIDIA’s GeForce 3D Vision technology

Capcom announced Resident Evil 5 for PC yesterday, and something you may not have noticed in the press release is that it will support 3D gaming.

When the game launches in July, PC users who have NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision installed on their system will be able to play the shooter in full 3D once they slip on the stereoscopic glasses.

Loads of other games currently support the technology, which will run you $200 for the basic kit.

3D seems to be the way gaming is heading. At least the required glasses don’t make you look like a nub anymore.

    The reports I’ve read point to the age old problem of headaches and strain, even on these newer 3D systems.

    Its great that capcom are so forward thinking but not everyone has this new tech yet. The same thing happened with Crysis and World in Conflict – high demanding specs at a time when things were just too expensive.

    Grimrita, someone has to support new tech when it’s new and expensive or it’ll never take off. You don’t need the 3D kit to play the game, but if you have it then it’s supported just like few games thus far have been dx10 only.

    Trust me, I do applaud Capcom for their forward thinking but if the title doesnt sell well, they will blame piracy.

    Is that really relevant? Everyone blames poor pc sales on piracy.

    Give it a rest loki. The pc market isn’t the highest earner for nothing.

    My prediction is that pirates will sate their consciences by pretending that piracy is just a scapegoat rather than a real problem.
