Is 3D gaming about to take off in a big way this year? Some folks sure do hope so. Nintendo has recently launched their 3DS – a glasses-free 3D gaming console, and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 started supporting 3D TVs not too long ago. Well this year, more and more games are starting to go stereoscopic 3D, including two upcoming Marvel Comics games. Sega has announced that the Thor: God of Thunder and Captain America: Super Soldier games will be in 3D on platforms that support it. This means the games will be in 3D on the 3DS, PS3 and Xbox 360 (of course you’ll need 3D TVs for the latter two). According to Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Sega, “Playing as Captain America with bullets whizzing past in stereoscopic 3D and having a titanic Frost Giant charge straight at you in Thor will bring an unprecedented level of adrenaline to the gameplay experience.” Sounds like a whole load of fun but let’s hope these movie tie-in games aren’t the slipshod titles that we’ve come to expect from most movie-games we’ve had over the past few years.
