House Says Games Can Lead 3D Entertainment

No, not M.D House but Sony Europe's boss Andrew House has recently said games definitely have the potential to lead in the somewhat re-emerging 3D entertainment market and they intend to provide 3D games for early adopters of the new technology.

Games such as Killzone 3 join titles such as Wipeout HD, Super Stardust HD, Pain and Motorstorm: Pacific Rift in SONY's line-up of 3D-enhanced titles that will be shown at this year's E3 event in Los Angeles. House had this to add in an interview on the PlayStation website:
"3D is a very exciting technology that has the potential to redefine how people consume their entertainment. More specifically, games are a perfect fit with 3D and I truly believe that it will be games that will lead the way in consumer understanding of how 3D enhances the entertainment experience."
Although he admitted initial 3D hardware is expensive for consumers, he said it was important for Sony to be there at the start of 3D in the home, in order to offer choice to the early adopters.
"It is important to us that we are always moving forward with new technologies, especially where there is the potential to redefine the entertainment experience."
Not too surprised that SONY are behind the 3D bandwagon and we will see if the trend lasts as long as the industry intends it to or whether consumers will be happy with what they already have. As long as they make 3D glasses with adjustable width frames I'm happy is all I'll say.
