Within just 2 years, half of all console video game releases will be in 3D, if you are to believe what Ubisoft executives predict.
The French game studio sees the newly invigorated 3D craze in movies as something that will translate as big and important in the video game market.

"The 3D games are going to come more and more with the TV screens that are available," said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot during an investor's conference call. "I think next year we should maybe see 15-20 percent of games that will be 3D on next-generation consoles."

In 2012, Guillemot expects that number to jump to 50%. And it's not just the home systems either. "On 360, PS3 but also maybe on portable machines," he said.

A similar revolution happened when HDTVs became mass-adopted. However, video game hardware had to catch up, and it wasn't until the PS3 came out that HD gaming fully took advantage of the new display technology. That was years after HDTV content was already very prevalent.

With 3D, that's not as big of an issue. The PS3 is already capable of powering stereoscopic 3D games thanks to a recent firmware update. Microsoft is not as forward-thinking with its 3D gaming potential, but it will surely come in time.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
