A 3D Patch For God Of War III Is A Distinct Possibility
3D gaming is on the way and it may impact some of your favorite franchises. For instance, God of War III director Stig Asmussen most certainly wants to see a 3D Kratos.
In speaking to NowGamer, Asmussen not only confirmed he'd be interested in the 3D option, but it also might become a reality at some point. We just can't imagine how nuts such an experience would be, provided the technology is up to snuff and everything looks right. And evidently, this shouldn't be an issue; said Asmussen:
"I know that it is something, having talked to one of our engineers, that we could do. We don’t have one of those 3D TVs so we wouldn’t be able to see what it looked like if we’re able to do it, and I’m sure that it would require a little bit of ramp up to do it, but from my understanding it’s not incredibly complicated."
Even so, it's kind of hard to picture. It wouldn't really be the same perspective as a 3D racing game like Wipeout HD or Gran Turismo 5, for example. Asmussen said a 3D GoW "would be kind of like looking through a window seeing a miniature world or something like that, a three-quarter perspective, little world or diorama." Basically, there's no reason we might not someday see a 3D patch for God of War III; the game certainly won't ship with this compatibility. But "if it's really easy to do" and there's enough of a demand for it, don't be surprised to see a 3D patch available some time later this year.
