It seems like all of the big three are starting to get into the 3D race one way or another, with Sony and Nintendo ahead of the pack. One of Nintendo’s biggest points with the 3DS was that you don’t need glasses at all to use its 3D effects, but Sony thinks that the way they present this point is more of a jab at them than anything else.
In an interview with IGN, Sony’s Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida said that Nintendo shouldn’t focus on whether or not 3D glasses are part of the experience, and went on to defend 3D glasses.
If you really want a big theater experience, of course you have to wear glasses,” he said. “With the latest technology, the glasses are light and you kind of forget you’re wearing them after awhile.
My favorite part of this entire story, however, is this line.
When you listen to what they are saying about the effect of 3D perspective to the games, they are saying the same message we are, but they don’t have to bash some small part of what the other company is doing.
