Half of all games will be 3D by 2012, claims Ubisoft
The game manufacturer made this rather bold prediction during an investors call. Before we dismiss this as nonsense, know that Nintendo is coming out with the 3DS by Christmas and there’s an aggressive push by developers and hardware companies to make gear and 3D games for Xbox and PlayStation. The wager is that the games would be more immersive and thus more attractive, you’re on a battlefield instead of looking at one.Â Still, let’s follow the money: in order to exist, the entertainment industry needs us to constantly buy new things and to do that they need to convince us that those things are necessary and about to be popular and life changing.
