Blog: Killzone 3 in 3D and Move enabled on the CES 2011 show floor
How much would you pay for this experience? Sony's asking an awful lot.
ON the show floor at the 2011 CES, Gouki's own FnJimmy plays Killzone 3 with the new Sharp Shooter Move gun in 3D. I put on the second pair of 3D glasses ($150 each MSRP) to see what this game could do. I've got a big head, and was wearing my glasses that day, so the active shutter glasses were not very comfortable to wear. I'd hate to have them on my head for more than 10 minutes. The 3D effect was decent, though it broke if you tilted your head. Overall, it didn't add too much to the game. I got the feeling that having it in 3D would help you aim with this accessory as you could line up your target through the reticule better. I didn't get to play the game, so I'll let Jimmy explain his feelings in the video:
Killzone 3D and Gun peripheral Hands-on at CES 2011 with FNJimmy
FNJimmy goes hands-on for the first time ever with the Sony Playstation 3 Sharpshooter peripheral. Can FNJimmy dodge bullets while taking an onslaught of questions from Cinderkin and goukijones? Watch this exclusive footage of Killzone 3D from the Sony booth at CES 2011.
What I will say is that this setup is ridiculous unless you've got some money to burn. I'll assume you already own a PS3 ($299) and one of Sony's 3D "ready" HDTV sets (starting around $1,100). To make that TV actually display 3D images, you need an outboard 3D transmitter ($50 you can see this in the video hanging below the TV) and at least one pair of Sony's active shutter glasses (the non-rechargeable battery models are $150). So that's $200, plus $150 for anyone who wants to watch. But you already have all that shit, because you love Avatar, right? You still need the game ($60), one move controller ($50), one move navigation controller ($30) and the sharpshooter gun ($40). $180 total for the game and controller. You have to be a big fan of this game to pay this much.
