256w ago - We've heard from many of you that 3D technology is something you're interested in seeing at CES, and Sony has one of the most impressive displays of 3D at their booth... but you won't learn anything about it.
"Don't get caught up with specs," the Sony representative told me. "We're not going to talk about specifications. This is just a look at what 3D could look like if Sony decided to move in this direction."
The idea was just to show the technology to people, to see if they would be interested in sitting at home, wearing a dorky set of black glasses, watching content in 3D.
I couldn't pry details about how the 3D affect was achieved, or if the display could turn any source into 3D, but what's clear is that, glasses or no, the 3D affect is amazing. Sony showed off Wipeout HD running in true 3D, and I was ready to whip out my credit card right there. Frank and I both agreed, this was one of the best demos of 3D technology we have ever seen.
"3D has come a long way, hasn't it?" the representative asked me. Sure it has, but give me some details. We can't get excited if all the press gets is a short tech demo. The crowd around the display was large, and filled with "ooohs" and "aaaahs."
This probably won't be the last 3D display we see at CES, but as a proof of concept,...
264w ago - Square Enix is doing the whole "teaser countdown site" thing again. This time, a new teaser site linked to from the Square Enix official page appears to be counting down to a Monday reveal of a game that has something to do with the word "Bahamut."
The last time Square Enix hosted a countdown page, the world was given the gift of Chrono Trigger DS. That teaser page didn't do too much to hide the identity of the game in question, promising a Nintendo DS title with the initials "CT."
This time, the teaser site, bahamut.jp, makes no mention of a system. As for the name Bahamut, Square Enix does have a long lost Japan-only Super NES strategy RPG called Bahamut Lagoon. Perhaps another revival is on the way?
Of course, this is all speculation. Any guesses? Comment below!
