Gears of War 3 to have 3D support

Gears of War 3

It’s not too often that Xbox 360 games offer 3D support, but developer Epic Games has revealed that Gears of War 3 will include the feature.

Executive Producer Rod Fergusson explained the reasoning behind adding stereoscopic 3D to the flagship franchise.

"It felt like something we wanted to have," he said. "It was a feature we didn’t want to be deficient in. When you look at Gears 1, it was what people used to demo HD at the time."

Fergusson also added that 3D is "still a niche feature," but the team at Epic Games felt like it might as well include it since they are familiar with the technology.

The Xbox 360 doesn’t handle 3D in the same way as Sony’s PlayStation 3. This results in a lower resolution, and Fergusson said that Gears of War 3 will be "a little bit jaggier in certain areas." He also made sure to note that the difference is "not huge" though.

Sony has shown its interest in 3D over the past few years. With Gears of War 3 utilizing that technology now, perhaps Microsoft will follow suit in the near future.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
