Those who are avid readers of this blog are familiar with my views on 3D gaming. To put it nicely I don’t think that 3D anything belongs in video games for so many different reasons. But I’ve ranted this all before.
Today we heard from Activision that Call of Duty Black Ops will ship Nov. 9th with 3D compatibility for all platforms. See video below…
I was happy to hear that 3D in Black Ops can be toggled on and off. It’s not a totally separate game you have to buy if you have the means to play in 3D (i.e. super expensive 3D TV with the super expensive shutter 3D glasses).
That’s how I feel 3D gaming should play out. As an option. It should not be something all gamers should have to conform to. But as 3D gaming is pushed more I worry that there will be no options and 3D is all you get. And I see that happening sooner rather than later unfortunately.
Anyways, some FAQs about this new announcement have been posted at the official Call of Duty Black Ops website. Check out callofduty.com/3D.
