Ubisoft Expects 3D TV To Be Ubiquitous By 2013

Gaming powerhouse Ubisoft claims that 3D TV will be in all UK homes within the next three years boosted by the fact that future gaming consoles, which will be launched during this period, will all have 3D capabilities.

Murray Pannel, head of marketing for Ubisoft UK, said that "It'll start slowly this year. But like HDTV I wouldn't rule out the fact that this will be installed in everyone's living room in three year's time, and for us to be in a position to have content that could really look absolutely amazing in 3D."

Tellingly perhaps, Ubisoft expects much of the momentum behind 3D to be generated by none other than the gaming industry with an expected 50 per cent of all gamed played in 2012 will be in 3D. The gaming company is not alone in getting ready for a looming 3D revolution.

Sony is betting massively on the trend with 3D Bravia television sets, 3D Bluray players and launching firmware that will make an existing PS3 gaming console 3D Compatible. Sony has also unveiled 3D games for its console like Wipeout HD and Killzone 3.

Nintendo will also launch a portable 3D gaming console, the 3DS that will allow 3D games to be played without the need of glasses for the first time ever.
