3D Isn’t Working Out That Well for EA
3D is a thing in gaming mostly because Sony wants to sell you a new TV, not because developers or consumers are really excited about it. And EA is admitting that, yes, consumers really don’t give a damn about 3D, as John Riccitiello says they’ve seen “very poor returns” on the format so far.
Frankly, we have not seen a big uptake for 3D gaming. We haven’t seen a big uptake for 3D televisions in the home, at least not yet. And we’re not here trying to drive the market; we’re here to react to what consumers are looking for.
Is anybody surprised that nobody cares about 3D? I’m not. I don’t even care about 3D and I have a 3D TV. Bah, whatever.
