From what I have read, most players available now won't. Some may do with a firmware update. But we will just have to wait and see.

IMO, this whole "3D revolution" is f'n retarded. I'd rather see companies spending money/time on things more important than 3D BS. It really disappointed me to see that "3D stuff" was the highlight of CES this year. Lame.

I would assume PS3 will support with a firmware update.

Indeed

I think the real question is when do we expect to see 3D games? Also, I am sure Nvidia will use CUDA to somehow simulate 3D in regular movies.

Have you ever tried 3D Vision. If so you would realize it does have a big part to play in future gaming. If not then, why are you so hostile to something you haven't even tried. You sound like someone who is scared of the future.

For the PC, pretty much every DX9 game and up is 3D supported. Not every game is perfect and some have issues. Mostly with shadows. No OpenGL as of yet, but I have heard they are working on it.

Ahh that's right, I forgot about that.

Only problem is it requires a 120Hz monitor, right?

Yup, but I wouldn't call that a problem. 120Hz for LCDs and TVs is long overdue.

Well the sucess of Avatar at the box office should mean that 3D is here to stay.
