    NVidia 3D Vision... Any one got it?

    Pretty much as the title says. Does anyone have it/use it?

    Seeing as I can't really afford to buy a PS4 this month I've had to cancel my pre-order and thought i'd spend a bit of money on my PC. Either another GPU (and still be poor) or buy 3D Vision and maybe a new mouse.

    I've only ever had a chance to use it a few years ago before my friend slept on and broke his glasses. i tried it with L4D2 and Batman:AA and i was left quite impressed though feeling like it was a gimmick. i STILL feel 3D is a gimmick but i wouldn't mind trying a few next generation games in 3D plus i want to treat myself to something

    For only 99 I might take the gamble as it is hardly a bank breaking price. Just looking for some opinions. I'd be more inclined in buying an Oculus Rift but I think it might be better to wait for the consumer product.

    I dunno, I have SONY's expensive $1000au 3D headset the HMZ-T2 and to me this seems rather expensive.
    Should be free.

    That sucks. I remember when I was playing L4D2 i was using the chainsaw and that looked really good seeing horde of zombies coming at you and running onto the saw. Made it very satisfying and with Batman whenever you glided from place to place his cape looked cool.

    I think i'm going to buy some, loads of games support it so worst case scenario is I don't use it much. I have a 3D screen, which i only bought due to wanting 120Hz, so i might as well use it for 3D occasionally.

    I got 3 free 3D glasses with my 3 monitors, that was just a bonus and the monitors can automatically switch between different modes depending on the game. While the monitors are made for AMD's cards it does work for Nvidia's if I use separate software to make the games side by side. The 3D effects though are absolutely amazing whether it's done by software or the monitor and I highly recommend it.

    Keefy, I take it you have some sort of monopsia?

    pretty much although no Dr has ever diagnosed it, at least to my knowledge. And its nowhere near as bad as some people's descriptions I have read on the net. I have decent depth perception might be because I have had this condition sine I was very young and learnt to cope with it.
    I just cannot see 3D.

    Well whether you get a monitor with an AMD switch in it or the Nvidia 3D thingamijig it should be a blast. Now I have to admit that I rarely use it but when I do use it it tends to be with games that require more atmosphere (like Amnesia).

    Yeah it won't be something I use too often but it'll be nice for the added touch. I have all the other bits for 3D so i might as well give it a go. I'm not going to bother with the Rift any more as it is still within its infancy. Hopefully going to order the glasses at the end of the month.

    Shame BF4 doesn't have support for it yet but apparently BF3 looked amazing in 3D

    I'm still going to get the Rift anyway at release. I was pretty close to picking up a DevKit though with the game I'm developing but it isn't really good enough for it.

    The rift seems a lot more exciting to me and far less gimmicky but there aren't enough games that i own to make a purchase worth while.

    Hopefully that changes because I imagine playing on a rift with a good quality set of 7.1 headphones would be whole new level of immersion.

    Rift + F1 = heaven, that's all I can say about that! The other racing games will be amazing with it as well.

    For some reason I thought it would only work with compatible games but of course it would work with anything as it's just another display, no?

    I imagine F1 would be sweet if it supported head tracking. The $#@!pit view would be amazing.

    Hmm Varsh you've confused everything!

    That's what I'm best at! I will without doubt be getting a Rift, I might even take the plunge and get the first commercial version even if it's 720p as the immersion will be stunning.
