According to their Develop 2011 conference keynote speech, Sony believes that 3D is not only a massive part of the future of gaming, but something gamers themselves eagerly want.

Speaker Mick Hocking, Senior Director at Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios and the man in charge of the company’s dedicated 3D developer support team, cited Nielsen statistics showing 71% of gamers had said they want to play their games in 3D, as well as noting that 3DTV uptake was running faster than HDTV had been at a similar point in its lifecycle – and that 40-50% of the market would be 3DTVs by 2015.

 

The session concluded with a widescreen showing of the trailer for widely anticipated PS3 title Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in 3D, illustrating what a well-implemented third dimension could bring to the visual experience of console gaming.
