Another incentive for someone to get a 3DTV and definitely a plus for those who already have one.
Full stereoscopic 3D is set to hit the Xbox 360, Eurogamer can reveal.
This stereo 3D support works exactly like the PlayStation 3's 3D effect. In other words, full-on HDMI 1.4 stereoscopic 3D in the 1280x1470 twin 720p framebuffer configuration.
This would mean a 720p image per eye.
When asked for information on this planned improvement, a source familiar with Xbox 360 development hinted at an E3 announcement.
"They'd be mad not to do it, is all I can say," said our source. "The machine is not only very capable, it's more capable than the PlayStation 3 of doing stereo, assuming you don't have one of the old crappy ones with the composite leads... assuming you have a HDMI Xbox.
"The bottleneck is more on the graphical throughput for rendering out in stereo."
So, when will Microsoft announce full stereo 3D support for the Xbox 360?
"E3 is coming up," is all our source would offer. "Microsoft is going to have to go on stage to say something, aren't they?"
