Impressions of Avatar: The Game on a prototype 3D TV
by Michael Conroy
Gaming on a 3D TV is kind of like playing Mario 64 for the first time: it makes you wonder how you ever did without the additional sense of perspective before, and once you`ve seen the future, it`s hard to go back. It really is that impressive.
Wired was given the chance to play Avatar on a prototype 46-inch JVC GD-463D10 3D TV (above), which uses the company`s Xpol polarising filter method: alternate rows of a FullHD-capable screen are used to display pixels intended for either the left or right eye, and special glasses (nope, there`s no escaping them) separate incoming light using two differently polarised lenses, causing a different perspective of the image to be perceived by each eye and thereby creating the illusion of three dimensions.
