50 3D Games Heading To PS3

Speaking to Develop, SCEE studio director Mick Hocking has revealed that there are more than 50 stereoscopic 3D-enabled games in development for PlayStation 3. 20 of them are being worked on in-house at Sony, including Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo 5.

"Some of them are massive names," said Hocking. "That's a really, really good sign that the industry is behind our unique message that 3D is a key element in the future of home consoles."

Hocking also spoke about the future of 3D, the possibility of holographic displays and even unsplit single-screen multiplayer.

“3D on mobile devices, and other forms of 3D, are all possible and many companies are working on them right now,” he explained. “We also have techniques like holographics for the PS3 that I think will be very interesting for the future 3D games.

“In regards to that we have some new technology that we’ve shown to developers that uses 3D techniques, it allows two players to play full screen multi-player games but without each being able to see the others view, and they have been massively keen on them. There’s lots to come.

“This isn’t just about adding 3D to the PS3 – there’s a whole wave of new technologies and techniques that make use of 3D and the 3D hardware that we can use to enhance our games with in the future.”
