PSXE Poll Update: Most Will "Wait And See" With 3D
Although Sony wants to bring us true 3D gaming ahead of schedule, that doesn't mean everyone will embrace it straight out of the gate.
Not surprisingly, the vast majority of readers won't be signing on for this new - and quite pricey - technology when 3D-enabled HDTVs first hit the market this summer. Most are planning to wait for a while, which is probably a smart move, especially when a big investment on a new 3D HDTV will set you back a few thousand. However, we're still very interested in seeing some of the new 3D software; we just heard this past week that Polyphony will provide racing fanatics with a 3D version of Gran Turismo 5, and we can't wait to try that. Maybe when you see 3D gaming before your very eyes, you'll be far more likely to ante up for the next technological upgrade. At the same time, weren't we just getting used to the flashy new world of HD gaming...? Heck, time passes so fast, it almost seems incomprehensible that the true 3D perspective is right around the corner. Wasn't it 2006 like, yesterday?
Now, in looking at February and March, we all know there are plenty of big releases. The question is, which is the one title you absolutely must have? Of all the amazing games scheduled for the next few months, what is the one potential masterpiece you just can't live without? In other words, if someone handed you sixty bucks and said, "you can buy one game between now and March 31," which would you bring home? We get the distinct feeling this will be a three-horse race between God of War III, Heavy Rain and Final Fantasy XIII.
