Five Games Already 3D Equipped (Or Will Be Soon)

Fewer companies have invested heavier into 3D gaming than NVIDIA with their NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, currently supporting more than 400 PC games (many of them converted, some of them 3D native), including several high-profile Capcom PC releases. This investment is backed by a belief from NVIDIA general manager Phil Eisler that 3D's going to be a big deal very soon.

"Consumers will expect all forms of entertainment in 3D," said Eisler at the 3D Gaming Summit taking place this week in Los Angeles. "By this fall, consumers will be surrounded by 3D."

Eisler said there are currently 100,000 3D capable gaming PCs on the market. NVIDIA predicts that number hitting 1,000,000 as of early next year, which he attributed to the "Avatar effect."

Supporting NVIDIA's hopes for 3D gaming, argued Eisler, was the game creators themselves.

"It's [3D] like explaining color to a blind person," said Battlefield: Bad Company 2 senior producer Patrick Bach in a slide during Eisler's presenation. "You need to see it to believe it."

NVIDIA also showed demonstrations of several games converted to 3D, including World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King and Age of Empires, which looked particularly impressive.
