    Default Ubisoft: most households will own a 3D TV by 2013

    Gaming is 3D’s only hope in reaching mainstream adaption. Hollywood has yet to put out any 3D movie that sells besides Avatar and that title alone is not going to cut it. However, even without a wide range of content, Ubisoft feels that most households will have a 3D TV by 2013 anyway. I’m doubtful.

    This isn’t the case for 3D. Most consumers are just now getting into HDTV. Content providers cannot yet handle all the HD stations and broadcasters just finished the very expensive HDTV retooling. No one is excited about making the switch to 3D. No one besides gaming companies, that is.

    Gaming developers and publishers have a unique opportunity with 3D as its development isn’t that much different than normal games. They even have the ability to encode both 2D and 3D versions of games right now for future use. Gamers are fickle, though. Disappoint them with a bad title or experience and they’ll likely be turned off for a while.

    Ubisoft of course needs to optimistic about 3D adaption. They are banking big on the format with key titles like Killzone 3. (dur, how about Ghost Recon: Future Soldier) But Ubisoft’s head of marketing’s statement that 3D will be “installed in everyone’s living room in three year’s time” seems a bit much right now.

    It will start to go to peoples homes when it will not require Glasses.

    Very good point! I have gone and looked at the 3D television available and it is awesome. But no way in hell am i gonna wear a pair of glasses to watch tv...

    I also no many people who have yet to move to HD TV and content. Will I be expected to pay another $50.00 or $60.00 a month from my cable provider for 3D programing...

    It ain't gonna happen in my house, I pay way too much for the HD and 3oo chanells of crap I have now.

    "3D" is totally lame and a gimmick, in my opinion.
