Blitz Unveils Stereoscopic 3D Game Tech

Blitz Unveils Stereoscopic 3D Game Tech

UK-based Blitz Games Studios (Tak and the Guardians of Gross, Bratz: Girls Really Rock) says its proprietary technology enables stereoscopic 3D on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 games, and it demonstrated the tech for the first time at Los Angeles' 3D Entertainment Summit today.

The company says its in-house tech can "replicate the full HD 3D experience" as seen in 3D theaters.

Blitz Games co-founder and CTO Andrew Oliver says that 3D games will be "even more immersive" than existing titles, but noted that the industry still needs to learn design issues associated with using 3D.

The company says its technology allows for its games to run in both 2D and 3D in a single version by "simply flicking a switch," and Oliver also expects that 3D-capable television sets are likely to gain in popularity as more compatible film and game content proliferates.

"Our BlitzTech technology will prove beyond all doubt that we are already doing what some industry experts have said is impossible on today’s game consoles," claims Oliver. "Our highly tuned engine is capable of producing real-time interactive graphics that are close to offline rendered CG movie quality."
