September 4, 2009 // 4:00 pm - Today Engadget (linked above) was able to test out Wipeout HD on Sony's PlayStation 3 being played in 3D, and managed to record a video of it below.

To quote: "Especially for something like Wipeout HD, whose neon-infused tracks make for an almost too convenient example of rapidly approaching vanishing points, we'd say 3D could really be a quasi-"killer app" for consoles going forward - especially if those fancy new motion controllers don't catch on for Microsoft and Sony.

In many ways, 3D just seems to make more sense in a video game than for a movie, and the whole problem of finding content to deliver in the format has already been solved: a software update for the PS3 sometime in 2010 will enable it to provide a 3D viewing experience to "all" existing games on the system.

We're sure there will be some exceptions, but it sounds very promising. The console itself pumps out a quite regular signal over HDMI, which the TV syncs up with your 3D glasses. A 200Hz TV, for instance, alternates 1080p frames, with 100Hz for each eye.

Of course, you'll need a brand new TV, but at least it won't be restricted to just Sony televisions."

[QUOTE=Valauliver;270917]I didn't see any difference between what Wipeout HD is now and in that video o.O.

Even when he put the glasses on. Mind he only ever had up on for a split second

it's known that the 3d effect dosen't work currently when viewed the a recording even if the recording is dead center.

It seems sony has a major problem realizing that designing everything to be state of the art and top dollar is not what everyone wants. We all look for good deals, cheap but good. Im sure Vizio has well over-sold them for a while.

if you already were glasses playing games, its going to be a bit annoying. either you have to get contact lens or prescription 3d glasses. LOL

Heres another type of 3D that gives a good example of the benefits. Altought this uses a completely different way to accomplish it.

I just feel like their investment in this sort of thing isn't going to pay off. They need to stop wasting resources (especially on something that most people won't even be able to use until next generation; when a wider percentage of televisions support it).

Edit: Mexicodude beat me to it.
