New video games with 3-D effect to hit stores
By David Wylie, Canwest News Service

Try not to duck because the future of video games is coming right at you.

Remember those 3-D glasses with the red and blue lenses that came with cereal boxes and comic books? They're about to be packed with high-definition video games, and the results are said to be eye-popping.

The first game in this new niche — which will likely change the landscape of video games with the same intensity 3-D technology is reshaping the movie theatre experience — is Disney Interactive Studios' G-Force, which hits shelves July 21.

"It's a technology that's been around for a while — there were comic books using it back in the day," said Robert Watson, the game's associate producer, in an interview from the U.K. "The basic concept dates back to the 17th century. They've been doing this for ages."

Too bad they don't allow comments on their website, we could all set them straight.

Those high tech canadian rednecks always were a little slow. General Romeo Daillaire came from there though eh? So I can't beat up on them too bad.

cool they are discovering anaglyph... how "special"

[seriousness]

slow as they might be, if they designed the game to work correctly in anaglyph without any anomalies hopefully that means it'll look good in modern 3d as well.

Yes android I do wonder why. I saw this movie on australia having severe immigration issues restricting people of color. How will you ever have a great leader like Obama here in the USA if you don't allow more immigration?
