According to a new CEA study, interest in 3D gaming is widespread.
According to a new study by the Consumer Electronics Association, 64 percent of people interested in 3D gaming were avid gamers, while 35 percent of those interested were casual gamers. They also found that 31 percent of avid gamers said that they plan to buy a 3D enabled console within the next year, 27 percent plan to purchase a 3D capable display, and 24 percent intend to pick up a portable 3D gaming device. Seven percent of casual gamers said they plan to purchase a 3D game console in the next 12 months.
Of those polled, 58 percent expected to watch 3D movies on the devices, while 51 percent will want to use them to navigate the internet.
The most common concern among all players is the availability of 3D games at launch as well as the cost of 3D games and devices.
During Nintendo’s E3 conference, the 3DS was presented as a glasses-free 3D gaming platform, with the ability to play 3D games at launch as well as display 3D photos and movies.
