Sony still big believer in 3D “where appropriate,” says SCEE boss

Thursday, 7th June 2012 22:22 GMT By Johnny Cullen

SCEE president Jim Ryan has said Sony as a whole still intends to support 3D but only when needed.

Sony’s 3D focus at E3 seems to have diluted this year compared to previous year. The company showcased it at its press conference as the next big thing in 2010 and continued with it as an ongoing pursuit last year.

This year, that has died down, with non of the content from the Sony press conference shown in 3D.

But Ryan has said in a CVG interview it’s still something it’s aiming to invest into when it feels it needs to.

“I just think that it’s something that’s now moving into the mature phase,” he said on the lack of 3D’s presence from the company.

“You only have so much time at these things, and there was an attempt at yesterday’s conference to make it shorter – which I thought was excellent.”

“Not where it doesn’t make sense, but where appropriate – absolutely,” he added when asked if major first-party titles would still support titles.

    Hope they don’t abandon it. 3D in gaming makes a huge difference. I wish all my games were 3D. And they could be, using the same technique used in Gears 3 and AC:Revelations. It is basically free and it looks great.

    In other words, it’s flopped and that nobody is interested.

    Something we all figured out two years ago.

    Got to try Gears 3 in 3D earlier this week and was very surprised to hear it uses one of the very cheap techniques – looked great.
