Lewis: 3D not mainstream in homes for “two to three years”
Sony maybe pushing for 3D on PS3 now, but Microsoft’s holding back, with EMEA interactive boss Chris Lewis saying the tech won’t be as widespread in homes for another “two to three years”.
Speaking with Business Week, Lewis said: “We are two to three years away from that, till the price point comes down, till the experience is sufficiently social, that you don’t sit there with big glasses on and don’t talk to your family.
“That will happen, there’s no doubt,” he added.
In the same interview, Lewis said Xbox 360 will continue to be on sale into 2015, adding Kinect as the main reason for the extended life-span.
Whatever happens with 3D in homes, don’t expect glassless 3D to be on big-screen TVs for a long time, Sony WWS boss of 3D Mick Hocking told VG247 at gamescom last week.
