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.
