3D in games, TV, and movies is already the "next thing" but it's not going to be the next "BIG" thing until the numerous barriers to entry get worked out.  For one, all the current forms of 3D require glasses... that in and of itself just plain sucks.  In addition you have to front the money for a new 120hz or higher display, or multiple displays if you're interested in the surround gaming fad too.  You're also going to need one beast of a system to play games using these new demanding engines at framerates and resolutions that won't give you those fun 3D seizures.

I'm looking forward to 3D at some point in the future, but unless you've got a few grand or more burning a hole in your wallet you're not going to be able to afford the full experience for quite some time.

*sigh* another "3d" article

If it's new, they should stop calling it 3D: pretty much every AAA game in the past 13 years has been 3D, and now it's thrown about as "OMG LASTEST THING". Marketing should get out of their cave.

3D takes too long for me to enjoy it. i always go see 3d versions of films with my friends, and i am the only one who can't adjust to seeing stuff in 3D. i may have bad eyes, but dang, 120Hz monitoirs are expensive.

I love the 3d experience en experimented with it on the pc with games and downloaded movies , one big bummer though and this is a dealbreaker : I wear prescription glasses and I am not the only one. I will not mind fiddling with two sets of glasses to see the occasional 3d movie, but I dont see myself playing a game while trying to balance two sets of glasses on my nose, untill the glasses thing is settled I am out and will contimue to play 2d. Are there other bespectacled people who have a solution ? , please react ( and I am not talking contact lenses, I cannot wear those)

Same boat as you, but I also get headaches from 3D. If they could do it without the glasses, then maybe.
