3D Gaming Goes From The PC To The TV

NVIDIA, a company known for its graphics cards for PCs, today revealed a push for the living room of the future, with the release of software that allows PC gamers to play in 3D on their television sets.

The software is called NVIDIA 3DTV Play, and lets anyone with a 3D-capable laptop or desktop PC plug them into a 3D-capable television set and play supported games in, yes, 3D.

While this would apply to less than 1 per cent of you, it's more of a show-off thing than something that'll sell millions, the good press generated by press events worth the cost to NVIDIA of developing something few people out there have the technology, let alone the will, to buy.

It'll be out in a few months and will sell for $US40.

Interesting choice of image for the press release up there. It's like the Velociraptor Safari of my dreams.


    Any chance of getting some more info on this. I remember reading about the 3D graphics cards by nvidia, but that they required a monitor with an extremely high refresh rate, higher than what your average consumer or even gamer would have.

    Does anyone know what would actually be a '3D capable desktop' and a '3D capable tv'? I'd like to see what the price on this would actually be even if it just a 'show-off' kind of thing.
