The Sony vs. Microsoft console wars are the equivalent of a fighting game (Mortal Kombat, say, or Street Fighter II) played by two evenly matched opponents, always brawling to a standstill despite their enormous skills. Microsoft claims it sold roughly…
Having your own laptop is no big deal these days. If truth be told, after buying a laptop, one probably spends lots more money on software and accessories. If you are always on the lookout for a new accessory for your beloved laptop, then here is something that you might want: Sony’s new 3D sheet.
While 3D is being touted as being a big thing, it really has not made it to every household that has a TV or a computer yet. You have to admit that watching certain movies in 3D is awesome, but there is the fact that having to wear 3D glasses is such a pain.
Believe it or not, but video game sales have gone down this year. By how much? Statistics say that they’ve gone down by 11 percent! That may not mean much (what’s 11 percent anyway?) for some, but given the figures involved in video game sales, that a whole lot of money!
So naturally, video game creators are looking for ways to increase their sales and get people to buy their games more. So you probably know that the E3 is ongoing right now. This could very well be the biggest thing that happens in the gaming world, although we all know that it is not how it used to be.
Anyhow, big players Sony and Nintendo have made some announcements to the effect that they are going to enter the world of 3D. This is not really a big surprise. After all the movies that we have been seeing in 3D, it really was only a matter of time till the video game companies followed suit.
So yesterday, Nintendo introduced 3DS. They showed off a device that will allow players to see images in 3D WITHOUT the need for those bulky and sometimes irritating 3D glasses. Now how cool is that? Here’s a clip from YouTube.
Of course, Sony will not be left behind in this race. While they didn’t announce something as radical as Nintendo (in my mind at least), they did demonstrate some games that are 3D capable.
I am certain that we will be seeing more and more of 3D games in the market as the years – months even – go by. Anyone out there excited about the fact?
