Dead Space 2 May Boast Freaky 3D
3D gaming is almost upon us, as Samsung has already begun to roll out their 3D-enabled HDTVs and Sony won't be far behind with their 3D-compatible Bravias.
Now all we need is a running list of titles that will support such fancy new technology. Many game makers are already preparing patches for their current games that will allow them to run in 3D, and Sony will be releasing a firmware update that will allow the PlayStation 3 to handle 3D gaming. Furthermore, many titles in the future should also support 3D and when it comes to intense, sweaty-palm adventures like that of Dead Space 2, an added dimension for extra immersion should be most intriguing. But will developer Visceral Games consider it? Well, apparently, according to Examiner.com, Visceral spoke about this subject at their recent panel at PAX East 2010 over the weekend. They say that one of the obstacles with 3D is that it "doesn't really get along" with the in-game HUD, as the latter "violates the space." They have no intention of including a HUD in Dead Space 2, though, so they'd be "a step ahead." This sounds exciting but they weren't about to confirm 3D compatibility; they were more interested in convincing the audience that they're intent on creating "a kick-ass game" above all else.
We'll have to wait and see what happens. By the way, for the record, Dead Space 2 has only been confirmed for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; a PC version is only "under consideration" at this point.
