Sky TV is set to air the world’s first game review show based around 3D gaming. Of course you’ll need a 3D capable TV to truly appreciate the show’s main selling point so the prospective audience isn’t particularly large.
“We are delighted to announce the premier of 3D Games Review, a show which is a first for both Sky 3D and Challenge,” said John Cassy, director of Sky 3D.
The company behind the show not only believe that this show could help increase the uptake of 3D Tvs, but that it would have decent viewer numbers as “gamers are early adopters of new technology.” It seems they fail to realise that nobody cares about 3D. Nobody.
“Gamers are early adopters of new technology so it’s no surprise to see that video games play a big part in driving interest in stereoscopic 3D in home entertainment, just as they did with HD,” added writer for the show Johnny Minkley.
“Sky 3D is the perfect platform for showcasing 3D gaming where it belongs: shoulder-to-shoulder with the best in TV and film. To my knowledge, Sky is the first major broadcaster to highlight it in this way, capturing 3D footage directly from consoles to show games as they’re meant to be seen. It’s still early days for the technology in gaming, so this is a timely opportunity to give people a taste of what 3D can bring to interactive entertainment.”
