Microsoft: 3D Gaming A "Long Way" Off

James Cameron isn’t the only one trying to convince us that 3D is the wave of the future. 3D displays have been a big focus at this years CES; Sony is making a big push to put its PS3 center stage in this 3D revolution. But is this really a revolution? Are consumers really excited to have their home theaters jump out at them? Not everyone seems to think so.

Microsoft's Xbox Director of Product Management, Aaron Greenberg, recently told Destructoid, “I think there's a lot of questions, to be honest. 3D is great in the theater, but for the living room? I think we're a long ways away from that.”

We’re a bit mixed ourselves. While we awed over some of Avatar's 3D effects in the theater, we quickly grew tired of wearing those tinted glasses. We think Greenberg makes an interesting point when he says, “In the theater there's nothing between you and the experience, but as you have other people in the room and other people walking by, well, it's not the same experience."

Only time will tell if consumers are ready to adopt this new technology. What about you? Are you ready to bring 3D into your living room, or are you happy with your flat HD displays?
