Call of Duty: Black Ops will be available in stereoscopic 3D when it launches November 9th this year. It seems the 3D buzz will never die, Publisher Activision said that the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC Versions of the shooter will be compatible with 3D-Ready HDTV’s and PC’s using active shutter glasses.
Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said “Development of stereoscopic 3D began as an R&D project, but once we saw what the technology brought to the Call of Duty experience, what a great fit and how immersive it was, we knew that we had to develop it for Black Ops”
Lamia went on to add “We made sure the experience is seamless for gamers to use with a simple menu option to enable stereoscopic 3D or disable it at any time whether playing in the single player campaign, multiplayer or Zombies.”
The Xbox 360 has 3D capabilities, however Microsoft decided not to market this feature as much competitors. Xbox Global Marketing boss has previously said “For us, it’s more going to be let’s see what the consumers say. Let’s see what happens on the TV side and the sell-through side. It’s something I think we’re going to follow on and that we’re fine to follow on”. He also claimed there’s nothing the PS3 can do in terms of 3D that the Xbox 360 can’t emulate.
