“Our focus on 3D right now is on the console. There’s a tremendous amount of opportunity on PlayStation 3 with 3D. The amount of interest in 3D from the retail side and game publishers is off the charts. We know we have a hit with 3D on PS3 and we’re going to concentrate our efforts there. I think it remains to be seen where Nintendo goes with 3D on a portable. Having been in the portable space for quite awhile, I think it’s an interesting move but one I’d like to see where they go from a demographic standpoint. 8 and 9 year olds playing 3D is a little bit of a stretch given where some of our research is right now.” – SCEA’s Director of Hardware and Marketing John Koller
I’m not surprised by this response in the slightest. Even I admit that I’m a bit skeptical about playing games in 3D. However, I was also skeptical of the DS and Wii remote…And we all know how those devices turned out.
