Uncharted 3 'will show a new level in 3D gaming' - Sony

Firm also not ruling out the use of 3D tech for NGP

Uncharted 3 will set a new benchmark for 3D gaming and justify Sony's investment in the technology, according to the platform holder.

"When Uncharted 3 launches it will show a new level in 3D gaming," Mick Hocking, the director of Sony WorldWide Studios' 3D team, told Develop.


"Naughty Dog are obviously one of the world's top developers, and what they've done with Uncharted 3 in 3D will really convince people of our full-screen HD 3D solution... Genuinely, Uncharted 3 looks phenomenal in 3D."

Yesterday, Sony launched a video interview going behind the scenes of the game's online modes with developer Naughty Dog.

Hocking also told Develop that Sony hasn't ruled out using 3D tech for PlayStation portable devices in the future, although its current strategy for NGP - which has its own Uncharted game on the way - is to build a "pure gaming device".

"As small screen 3D improves we may be able to deliver these high quality 3D experiences on smaller screens," he said. "But our focus at the moment is on delivering the highest quality 3D games viewing experiences, and currently this is best done on HD 3D TVs."
