There are a few massive publishers in the gaming industry, for whom the merest utterances can hold a huge effect on the entire world of gaming. One such publisher is EA, and the words EA boss, John Riccitiello, uttered to shareholders in the company’s annual meeting could very well likely change the direction of the industry altogether. In short, Riccitiello doesn’t believe in 3D gaming and doesn’t see the new medium being worthy of either his company’s time or effort. Bad news for the likes of Sony who has invested the cost of a small country into the 3D machine.
Even when the popularity of 3D hit its most recent peak, after Tim Burton’s god awful Alice In Wonderland inexplicably cracked a billion dollars thanks to the overpricing of 3D tickets, gaming has been slow to adopt thanks in large part to the scarcity of 3D capable TVs in the home.
Your average Joe has never really given the impression that 3D is anyway important to his or her gaming and it would appear EA have wholly accepted that truth by just about putting 3D behind them altogether.
A simple question then for our readers, do you even want 3D in your games?
