Blitz Games’ Andrew Oliver has said that Microsoft’s planning to announce its plans for 3D on Xbox 360 “at some point soon”.

Speaking at the Westminster eForum ‘2020 Vision event in London today,
as an early backer of 3D gaming
, Oliver believes it is only a matter of time before Microsoft is set for a reveal.

“3D does take a bit of extra work,” he said. “Microsoft are going to be making an announcement about it at some point soon.

“There’s lots of games coming on the PlayStation 3 very shortly in 3D. There’s a big show on next week. On the Xbox it [3D] has been rather quiet.

“Our game did come out in 3D on the Xbox 360, so 3D is possible, even through an HDMI 1.2 cable. Ubisoft created Avatar, which includes a mode for 3D on a 3D TV. It is just a case of adding a mode into the options menu, so there’s no need for two different products.”

Who knows, really. The way things are going, it would not shock us in the least if MS were to drop a massive bomb like this at a venue such as E3.

Then again, it wouldn’t be that big of a bomb, really. The future is now, after all.

Thanks, Develop.
