As you can see from below, we reported earlier in the week how Killzone 2 will support 3D, along with other big titles like Gran Turismo 5, LittleBigPlanet etc… as it seemed they were confirmed in an episode of Qore. Well I’m afraid this is not case anymore as Sony officially denied the story and simply said it was for pure demonstration of what 3D could do. Although 3D might be a long way away from being very popular among gamers, it still would of been a huge push for the technology if these kind of titles would of supported it. Anyway, here is the official statement from Sony thanks to VG247:
“That last feature included interviews, footage from CES 2010, and a brief montage of SCEA titles intended as examples of what 3D gaming might encompass. It is hard to do justice to just how amazing 3D gaming looks in a 2D presentation—even in an HD product such as Qore.
Unfortunately, our feature did not make it clear that the 2D game footage was included for demonstration purposes only. We apologize for the erroneous inference that 3D versions of LBP, Wipeout HD, Killzone 2, Gran Turismo 5 or Super Stardust HD are in production.”
3D isnt exactly the most exciting prospect for the future of gaming, people just arent really interested at the moment and that is only reinforced by the extremely high expenses involed in preparing for 3D Gaming. So i think its safe to say that 3D Gaming is a long way down the road yet, maybe a year or two before it becomes affordable and a lot more common among gamers paraphernalia.
Well try telling Sony that, those guys are really determined to push 3D gaiming out there. It has long been rumored that a Firmware Update will come in the Summer allowing PlayStation 3 Consoles to run in 3D. Well that seems to be pretty much confirmed in the latest episode of the PlayStation Network Show Qore. Not only that, but they also imply that the PlayStation 3 Blockbuster Killzone 2 will support the technology. With this and other huge titles such as LittleBigPlanet and Gran Turismo supporting 3D and so early, Sony are doing a excellent job of supporting the technology and it certainly sounds a lot more attractive to gamers with such titles onboard, if we can just get pass the high cost of it all.
Anyway, thanks to TheGamerAccess for the heads-up, here is a short clip from Qore demonstrating the news:
