Sony wants Nintendo to stop mocking 3D glasses

Sony is continuing to pour its hopes and dreams into the 3D white elephant, and it actually seems offended that other people aren’t doing the same. Talking as if it’s stumbled across a gift from God, Sony wants rival Nintendo to stop mocking 3D glasses, and join hands to promote this wonderful new technology that certainly hasn’t been around for the past twenty years. 

“I have hope that they have a broader perspective with 3D,” says Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida. “When you listen to what they are saying about the effect of 3D perspective to the games, they are saying the same message we are, but they don’t have to bash some small part of what the other company is doing,

“We’d like to work together to promote 3D.”

Aww, a message of peace and harmony. Isn’t that sweet? Yoshida also defended the glasses, claiming that in order for the true 3D experience, one needs to wear things that make them look like a prick. 

“If you really want a big theater experience, of course you have to wear glasses. With the latest technology, the glasses are light and you kind of forget you’re wearing them after awhile.”

The major difference between Sony and Nintendo, of course, is that Nintendo’s 3D solution not only eliminates glasses, it eliminates the need for a ridiculously expensive 3DTV. Sony is really underestimating how expensive it is to get into 3D gaming, especially when 100% of the population hasn’t even backed HDTV yet. Sure, hardcore PS3 owners are likely rich enough to jump on the bandwagon, but they already own a PS3. If Sony thinks 3D gaming will sell systems, then the company’s run by people with ecstasy pills up their arses.
