Call of Duty: Black Ops Will Ship With 3D Included
To many it may seem like a gimmick, but Treyarch announced recently that their upcoming Call of Duty will support stereoscopic 3D from day one. I personally think that it will add to the experience of realistic first-person shooters like this, but I’m one of a few.
I won’t come out and completely poo all over the 3D movement that we have going on right now because I see it as baby-steps to having better 3D and hopefully in the future holography. Too long have we been happy with just our standard 2D games. Now that we have consoles and computers that have hit the wall when it comes to normal resolutions, we can finally start to get them to think outside the box.
Much like how single-CPU computers gave way to the 2 to 8 core chips we enjoy these days, I see it as a necessary step to having the non-headache inducing displays that we’ve all dreamt of as children.
While I’m not a huge fan of the Call of Duty franchise, mainly due to my gaming-hipsterism (that is being exclusionary towards many of the mainstream titles, except Halo), the thought of being able to look down the sights of whatever weapon I’m using and actually see the character model rendered in good 3D right before I blow his head off, entices me.
