Sega: 3D Will Be a Big Wave


With big named games like Gran Turismo 5 being delayed for the introduction of 3D support, you can’t deny 3D gaming is shaping up to be a serious step for the gaming industry. During an interview with Japan’s Nikkei Trendy  Sega’s Naoya Tsurumi shared his thoughts on the future of 3D games.

Tsurumi: “I believe 3D will become a big wave. The Nintendo 3DS is a landmark hardware. We’d like to invest heavily in it.”

 Tsurumi also added that Sega would “definitely” like to support 3D console games, however he believes success here will depend on the spread of 3D televisions. Like many other executives have noted, Tsurumi stated that making games compatible with 3D viewing is not difficult on a technical level.

    Where do you get this? As you said, adding stereo 3D support is technically fairly straight forward, and probably doesn’t need more than one good 3D engine programmer.

    In 2009 @ TGS Sony said GT5 would release in Japan in March of this year. Since then the date has been moved to “TBA” with the game still being considered as only 90% complete.

    I’m assuming that the other 10% has to do with 3D and probably Move since both features aren’t available yet.
