We are very pleased to report that The U-DECIDE Initiative results have been finalized and the prize draw is complete. We congratulate all our winners (too many to list here) and special thanks go to iZ3D LLC, AMD, The Game Creators, Blitz Games Studios, and Guild Software for making all this possible. We will start shipping after CES is finished.
The prize draw marks the finalization of the U-DECIDE results! A complete report will be available on January 26th, but the press release modernizes the preliminary results shared last month. Will there be a melding of minds between customers, manufacturers, and content makers at CES? We will see!
The U-DECIDE Initiative successfully captured surveys from 714 respondents with 60% comprised of 2D gamers, and 40% of S-3D gamers. To our knowledge, this is the first time manufacturers, game developers, and consumers joined forces to set the record straight – at least in the 3D industry.
The report is free to game developers who accept MTBS certifications and committed MTBS partners. A 5% discount is given to MTBS members registered with accurate information, and interested parties can arrange a pre-order or make inquiries via udecide@mtbs3D.com. What has been revealed in the press release is a tiny sampling of what has been learned, and we are confident the report will provide very helpful to all recipients.

MTBS just received iZ3D’s experimental glasses designed to further improve image quality for their public beta test. The preliminary results posted by members is very positive. Please inform iZ3D of your results before posting in our forums.
While this isn’t quite S-3D related, there is some hope because Blitz Games Studios demonstrated S-3D on Xbox at the 3D Entertainment Summit. Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system “recorded the biggest year in Xbox history”. They now stand at 28 million consoles worldwide, with an 8 million unit lead against Sony’s PS3. Will S-3D impact the console wars in 2009? We will see…
