We have some exciting news for Xbox 360 owners now, as we’re hearing whispers that Microsoft is going to officially announce Stereoscopic 3D support for the Xbox 360 at their E3 2011 press conference which kicks off on Monday June 6th.
If you need to get a refresh on exact times for Microsoft’s keynote, you can head to our previous report here for full details. Back to this bombshell though, as Eurogamer has published an article today, stating that Microsoft will make the news official at their event next month.
The 3D support will be similar to that seen on Sony’s PlayStation console, and will allow gamers to play 3D content in 720p with a pair of 3D glasses. But perhaps the most interesting aspect of this, is that Eurogamer’s article included text which states that the 3D quality may even be better on the Xbox 360 than the PS3. Check out a quote below from their article:
“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.”
This is still a rumor for now of course, but judging by the way Eurogamer have written their article, they and their source obviously know something we don’t. Xbox 360 gamers should be thrilled at the news, as it now means developers will have to work on full 3D support for both consoles, and not just the PS3 which has happened with recent titles such as Mortal Kombat.
As an Xbox 360 and PS3 owner reading this, what are your thoughts on the news?
