- Sony has been quite vocal
on PS3 3D lately, updating their PSN ToS
and outlining plans
for 3D movie and photo PlayStation 3 Firmware updates, and today GamaSutra.com (linked above) has confirmed Darkworks and TriOviz have partnered to bring an official PS3 3D SDK
to the PlayStation 3 3D Middleware Program
for licensed developers.
To quote: "Launching with little support for console games, 3D TVs present a chicken-and-egg dilemma; consumers are waiting for a critical mass of 3D content to justify the purchase while developers are waiting for an installed base of 3D TVs that justifies the development investment," said longtime graphics technology expert Jon Peddie
He described TriOviz's tech as "an excellent bridging solution" allowing gamers to "play the same 3D console title on their existing HDTVs and then on their new 3D TVs."
