Hollywood movie director James Cameron says 3D technology could be the next big thing in gaming. Cameron says first person shooters could really benefit from this technology and he also said that Ubisoft is working on a stereoscopic game for the Xbox 360:
"When you are viewing in stereo, which is what we do, more neurons are firing. More blood is pumping through the brain," Cameron added, noting that FPS games in particular stand to benefit.
"You are in the game," he said. "This is the ultimate immersive media."
Cameron noted that Ubisoft, which is handling game duties for Avatar, already has a stereoscopic game running on Xbox 360 with 3D glasses. But the director says displays for laptops, phones and Zunes can be made to use the 3D tech without even needing special glasses.
"Stereo production is the next big thing," he said. "We are born seeing in three dimensions. Most animals have two eyes and not one. There is a reason I think."
Another firm that believes games could benefit from stereoscopic technology is NVIDIA. The green team said last month that they plan to release a new GeForce driver this summer that will add 3D support to all games.
