Gears of War 3 Will Support Stereoscopic 3D

By   /   Aug 15, 2011


After Sony’s persistent pursuit in 3D support for almost all major Playstation 3 exclusives, Microsoft has joined the party by adding 3D support to its major Xbox 360 exclusive – Gears of War 3, which is also Epic’s first game that will support Stereoscopic 3D.

This ground breaking news was revealed by Gears of War executive producer Rod Fergusson to Eurogamer during a Gears of War event in London.

It’s still fledgling technology, he said. It’s still a niche feature. But it was something we could support, so we felt, why not?

Xbox 360′ 3D support isn’t as strong as Playstation 3’s so you won’t be getting 720p visuals. Instead you will get ‘five something’ revealed executive Producer. It will also affect the experience – when 3D is activated Gears of War 3 will be a ‘little bit jaggier in certain areas’. Though he claims that it isn’t a huge difference.

He summed up the conversation by almost confirming the existence of the rumored Xbox 360 Full 3D Upgrade but didn’t give any specifics.

As you look forward, in the next XDKs coming out of the Xbox, it’ll have more support for 3D or higher quality for native support for 3D.

But it won’t be out before Gears of War 3 gets released and that is, September 20. In case this whole 3D support has gotten you excited, you have just over a month to upgrade. Will you ?
