Arkham City Playable In 3D Without 3DTV


 3D may have lost some momentum in cinemas, but for gamers it’s still fairly new, and with dozens of 2011 blockbuster titles enabling 3D support, some of us have been forking out for extravagant television sets. Others, like myself, have tried to find a way around the huge 3D entry fees, and thankfully Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum will allow such heavy-cost evasion.

Though the game will feature regular 3D functionality for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC (via Nividia 3D Technology,) there will also be an option to select “Anaglyphic” 3D instead. Taking a leap back from the technical prowess of current 3D technology and shutter glasses, this form of 3D allows more financial-conscious gamers such as myself to crack out the red/cyan glasses to get their fix.

Warner Bros. as well as several over game publishers have adopted “TriOviz Inficolor 3D,” in the past, both Captain Ameirca: Super Soldier and Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters being compatible. Official TriOviz glasses are available to purchase, though after a little research there is still no way of telling whether they offer a substantially better level of quality when compared to your bog standard coloured specs.

    I really must get around to trying out this 3D lark properly sometime, so far i’ve only tried the anaglyph method with Invincible Tiger on psn, which was poor , but i also tried it with Minecraft which actually looked pretty cool. Only issue for me was the darkening of the image and that would bug me after a few mins. Anyway, the current Batman IP seems strong enough without resorting to 3D but it’s a nice bonus for those who are equipped for it.
