Gamers who embrace 3D as the next evolutionary step in media and entertainment may have started to hug, cradle and coo over their PS3s when Sony announced the console will soon have more than 50 3D titles on their platform. Those who cringe at the very mention of this technology may feel like Sony, along with the movie industry, is trying to shove a toxic fad down their throats. No matter where you stand on this issue, suffice it to say that 3D technology is here and it doesn’t seem like it will go away any time soon.
Sony’s most recent 3D announcement shows they certainly do not believe in 3D reflux disease. The exact opposite, 3D to them is a miracle tonic that will quell any technological woes your slightly dated media center is suffering from. Their prescription can be found after the jump.
This past Monday, Sony announced (via The US Playstation blog) a bevy of games that are either available now or will soon be. They also assured the world that there will be more after the new year. Here is the list so far:
*Indicates downloadable PSN title
- Call of Duty: Black Ops
- Enslaved: Journey to the West (via PSN software update)
- The Fight: Lights Out
- Gran Turismo 5
- High Velocity Bowling
- Hustle Kings*
- James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game
- MotorStorm: 3D Rift*
- NBA 2K11
- Prince of Persia Trilogy*
- The Sly Collection
- Super Stardust HD* (via PSN software update)
- Swords and Soldiers*
- TRON: Evolution
- WipEout HD*
Coming in 2011
- Crysis 2
- de Blob 2: Underground
- Dungeon Defenders*
- Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection
- Killzone 3
- MLB 11: The Show
- Mortal Kombat
- MotorStorm Apocalypse
- Virtua Tennis 4
- Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
The 2011 list looks much more palatable than the current titles out now. I for one am wondering if Naughty Dog really took the time to make Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception a truly 3D game or if the technology will feel tacked on. Then again, I’m still holding out for the heliodisplay.
