PostSubject: Nvidia 3D vision   Mon Feb 08, 2010 2:45 am



If you haven't heard Nvidia has developed a kit that works with your graphics card that enables you to play your PC games and watch movies in 3D.

I got to play with the Nvidia 3d vision on my last Lanwar outing back in June 2009 via the BFG booth. I got a TON of time to fool around with it (being that it was 3 AM in the mourning) and played games such as Left 4 Dead, Call of Duty: World at war (Nazi zombies), burnout paridise, Mirrors edge and Crysis. I have to say it was pretty sweet. Anyone who knows me knows I hate left 4 dead, but I was hooked when playing it in 3D. I ended up playing it for over two hours literally jumping out of my seat each time a hunter came flying at me.

The Nvidia 3D vision is not cheap. The 3D kit alone is $200 and you need a compatable monitor (120 Hz), video card and PC running either Windows Vista or Windows 7. Definitely something to watch for in the ever evolving world of PC gaming.

I played Burnout paradise with this at microcenter, and was really impressed. I usually see 3d as a gimmick, but when used in the right way, it could do wonderful things for us.
Now if only they could get rid of the glasses...

I've never actually used any 3D gaming technology, but I'm not a huge fan of 3D movies.

Honestly, I don't think it's something I would ever pay for, but if someone handed me a 40 inch tv with 3d, I wouldn't turn it down.

The funny thing is this first came out on the market in 2008 and now that every company is CRAZY about the transition to full 3D I can only imagine how things will be in two years because the Nvidia 3D vision is BADASS

I think it's gonna be a lot like the HD push. No one will get it for a while, then in a few years. 3d will become the standard, and to watch tv, we'll need a 3d converter box.
