Wonder how cool this technology really is

It's the only way I play certain games. Some aren't that great but the profiles are constantly being updated so support for even the newest games is never more than a month away.

You get the same effect as when you watch 3D movies at the theatre? Do the glasses bother you after playing for a while? I wonder if TigerDirect would have some demos on their stores or something. I'm heading today to one of their stores, would be great if I can see something in action.

It all has to do with the way you adjust the unit. NVIDIA has a great utility to customize the separation to your liking. Usually, you start with a minimum of separation and then move your way up. If you start on high, you WILL get headaches.

Epic is busy these days.

What does this all mean? DX11 pffffft. Everything will still be the Unreal Engine, just like it has been for the last number of years. :whistle:

Certain games are fantastic with it others are very annoying.

Fantastic - Batman: Arkham Asylum - Playing this game in 3d is literally amazing.

Annoying - Mass Effect 2 - As Nvidia is always releasing fixes this might get better but right now it does not look great most of the time.

I've been interested in jumping on 3D Vision since it was release, but the mixed reviews always kept me from wanting to spend that much on it. Is it worth the price? I was going to build a system with a 5850 in a month or two but I'm interested in 3D vision again. Maybe I'll wait to see what the price on the GTX470 is like.

I have used nvidia 3D vision and it is hit and miss. Few games are great with it. I never want to play batman without 3D and physx. Problem with nvidia 3D vision is there isn't enough monitors and large enough monitors. If there was a 30" monitor it would be an instant buy for me unless it was rediculously expensive. Although I am tempted by the 27" monitor.

Unreal engine is getting kind of old. E.g. Arkham asylum, nearly brand new, still doesn't compare to crysis, which is 3 years old... mayhap it's time for a new engine. Don't get me wrong, it's nice, but as gaming advances, so should graphics, IMO. Thoughts?
