EA chief operating officer Peter Moore told Eurogamer that he remains sceptical about stereoscopic 3D gaming and that the technology doesn't seem to have got traction. Hailed by some as the next big thing in video gaming, the technology received little attention from most game publishers.
In a 2010 interview with Eurogamer, then EA Sports chief Peter Moore expressed his scepticism about stereo 3D. Now, as EA COO, Moore and his company are even less enthusiastic.
"And what an oracle I seem like!" he told Eurogamer.
"3D is certainly not in any way on our list of things we are focused upon as a company. I look at gaming, and it just doesn't seem to be a major factor.
Sony said it will continue to support stereo 3D, but as Eurogamer notes, the technology wasn't present at the company's E3 and Gamescom press conferences:
For its part, Sony has said it will continue to support stereo 3D. SCEE boss Jim Ryan told CVG at Gamescom that the tech will be included in its games "where it makes sense", and advised we not read too much into its omission from Sony's E3 and Gamescom press conferences.
"We spoke about it at E3 two years ago and everyone put their glasses on for the first time, and the next year we did the same and everyone did it again. Y'know, there comes a time when you don't need to talk about it anymore," he said.
