3D gaming is currently a fad

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The gaming guru, Michael Pachter, has gone on the record as saying that 3D gaming is nothing but a fad and will continue to be so until the market for 3D Ready televisions has reached a serious level.

It has to be assumed that this level of 3D take up must be in with HD TV sales at the moment.

Once again, the largest obstacle to 3D gaming and television is the wearing of glasses.

This is really uncool, unless the wearer actually wears glasses and then it’s a different matter, especially as some opticians are now producing prescription glasses with 3D lenses.

Until the point where 3D is in homes or glasses are no longer required, Michael Pachter believes that 3D will never catch on.

On the other hand the manufacturers of 3D equipment seem to disagree with him.
