Epic: 3D on 360 has “room for improvement”, Gears 3 still looks swank though

Epic president Mike Capps has said there is “room from improvement” when it comes to 3D, yet despite this, Gears of War 3 looks “really good,” when played on a 3D television.

Speaking with CVG, Capps said adding 3D to Gears 3 and getting it to work proper was one of the reasons support for the tech was revealed for the game long after its initial announcement.

“I think 3D was the very last thing we did,” he said. “We’ve been playing with it for a long time and it added a lot of complexity and testing time. We didn’t think we’d make it, which was part of the reason we made a late announcement. But we got it working and we think it looks pretty good.

“I think there’s room for improvement in what the console supports in terms of 3D, but for folks who are looking for a stereoscopic experience, I think it’s really good.”

Other games for Xbox 360 which support 3D sets include Black Ops, De Blob 2 and Crysis 2.

Gears 3 is out September 20.
