Sony: More Playstation Titles To Recieve 3D Treatment


Sony’s senior development manager, Simon Benson has revealed in an interview with the Official Playstation Magazine that there are more Playstation titles in the pipeline to recieve 3D treatment in the future. Both WipEout HD and Super Stardust HD will be the first PSN titles to get the new look and they will arrive on June 10th. One thing that was mentioned by Simon Benson was the fact that it is indeed harder to retrofit an old title to support the 3D tech than it is to make a new title from scratch that supports 3D.

“I’m sure we will [retrofit more games with 3D], as adding 3D to a game can make it a whole new experience,” he told the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine.

“Retrofitting 3D is actually harder than building 3D into a game from the outset. One of the big issues is that all of the game assets were designed to work with only one HD output. Being able to render them twice to make a 3D output can be a challenge.

“Also, the game interfaces are often designed to only work in 2D. The process used [to] covert the games varies greatly… so there isn’t really a ‘on size fits all’ solution.”
