3D Likened to an Experiment by Microsoft's Phil Spencer

According to this article on gamesindustry.biz via CNN, Microsoft’s VP Phil Spencer thinks 3D on TVs is currently a pie-in-the-sky proposition:

"For better or for worse, people just don't really have TVs in their house right now that are going to do 3D in a way that's going to work.”
“I like the 3DS, you don't have to wear the glasses."


I happen to agree in this particular case. Sony is pushing too hard to get this tech into consumer’s homes so soon after the advent of HDTV. Eventually, someone is going to make a large scale 3DS for the home, with a passable viewing angle for multiple game participants. At that time, I can see 3D taking off in the home on a large scale. As of now, it’s relegated to being a gimmick.

Langdell Told to Notify Previously Bullied Companies

As I’m sure many of you are aware, Tim Langdell is a favorite topic among gamers if it means he’s getting bashed. That’s not going to change much over the next couple of weeks, as this article from gamesindustry.biz tells the story summarized in our headline.

I have to wonder how Langdell will word these “apologies”. You just know they’re going to be snarky and backhanded. Right?

At least two of us are at GDC for some amount of time this week. We’ll be taking in as many sessions as we can, and hopefully scoring a few interviews as well! Keep your eyes peeled on this space while we get up to speed with this whole “blog” thing as a news receptacle.
