Microsoft and LG bring 3D gaming to Xbox 360

Microsoft's Xbox 360 console will soon be able to play 3D games, after the company signed a deal with LG

The two companies have signed a "memorandum of understanding" to cross-promote 3D technology. The deal initially covers an agreement to sell LG's 3D televisions alongside Xbox 360 games consoles in South Korea, although the agreement could be extended to other countries in future.

It seems likely that Microsoft will be issuing a firmware update to add 3D support to the Xbox 360, in much the same way as Sony did for the PlayStation 3, and more details are expected to emerge at E3 next month, the annual gaming expo in Los Angeles.

"There are already 3D games available today on Xbox 360, and this selection will continue to evolve," said Microsoft in a statement. "Today, you can buy a 3DTV and wear glasses to play games such as Avatar and Batman: Arkham Asylum. The promotional partnership announced in South Korea today is specific to the South Korean market, but is further evidence that as 3D adoption grows, Xbox 360 will support 3D games and entertainment."

3D is seen as the next key battleground for games companies. Sony has issued a firmware upgrade for that PlayStation 3 that allows it to play 3D games, such as the forthcoming Wipeout and MotorStorm, while Nintendo has revealed that it is launching a new hand-held games console, the Nintendo 3DS, that will allow people to play 3D games without the need for special glasses.

Both Sony and Microsoft will also be going head-to-head with Nintendo with their new motion-sensing gaming systems. Sony's PlayStation Move is similar to the Nintendo Wii, and uses a wand-style remote to control on-screen movement. Microsoft's Project Natal system entirely does away with the need for a controller, instead using a camera to capture the movement of players and translate that in to on-screen action.

behold the future

3D doesn't work for me as one of my eyes are weaker than the other. I'll be keeping my pennies.
