After another busy post about Super Hi-Vision possibly being an option on the Playstation 4, the general opinion was no chance as the current console doesn’t fully make use of 1080p just yet. I have to agree with the comments made that Sony should concentrate on the current technology for viewing. However, I came across 3D TV the other day which caught my attention. In the UK, Sky have mentioned that they have successfully made their first test broadcast (to just 1 TV set) by using a standard Sky+ box. This test will hopefully pave the way to more shows and channels being broadcast in 3D within the next 2 – 3 years. This has led me to ponder the possibility of Sony utilising 3D TV for the PS4.
3D TV in the past required the use of special glasses, sometimes with red and green colours in the lenses, or other glasses like the IMAX uses. A new technology has been made available over the last couple of years which aims to present a 3D picture without the need of glasses. When watching a football game you could lean to the side and see objects closer to you move faster across the screen then objects further away. With out the need for special glasses it does make 3D TV more desirable and this could easily be adapted in to Playstation games.
What are your thoughts? Should Sony make the PS4 3D TV compatible?
