Gamers and game developers are still divided on the importance of 3D vision for games, but Crytek CEO, Cevat Yerli, is pretty confident that it will become an industry standard in the near future.
“I’m quite sure over the years it will become standard. 3D entertainment is inevitable. It will come, and the key solution will be if it’s easy for the eyes,” he said.
“We have been working with 3D for a while. We know the nuances and details, and our approach of concave 3D makes the game ultimately very accessible.”
Yerli then acknowledged that the eye stress caused by the current stereoscopic 3D technology is a major hindrance to consumer adoption of the 3D games. “If it’s a challenge for the eyes, people won’t like it,” he admitted. “But we are trying to make a game that is hours of 3D, and you can judge it yourself. You’ve seen how easy it is for the eyes, and for me it’s critical that people understand we are not naïve when it comes to 3D.”
Crytek has promised that all future Crysis games will be playable in 3D. I am interested to see
hmmm, you never know, but I am really waiting for gaming tech like in (cringing) Avatar…. that seems pretty awesome, a fully submersive experience that cannot be untold from the real world except for things to tell you its a game, and not send you insane! shooters and drivers would be amazing and an RPG like Fable would be revolutionary! I imagine pretty dear to the bank statement though……
I am quite the proponent of the 3D revolution, and I feel it is the next big thing in visual technology. I am excited to see where it is in a year.
