Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 - 3D? What 3D?

[ Edited ]
9 Replies 1,730 Views edited 08-06-2013

I've just bought Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Limited Edition for the PS3.  I have the first game which I like. So  bought SGW2 particularly because it is supposed to support 3D. It's the first game I bought since I acquired my LG D2343 Cinema 3D IPS monitor specifically over other games because I wanted a 3D game.

 

Trouble is I can't work out why they claim it is 3D.  It simply isn't.  There's no 3D option anywhere that I can find.

 

Hopefully I'm looking in the wrong place or need to do something more to initiate 3D.  Heads up for me anyone?

Have you enabled 3D in the PS3's settings?

In addition has your PS3 detected it's been connected to a 3D TV?
It might also be worthwhile buying a HDMI cable which is 1.4 compliant

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

I wonder if that is what GI Games meant when they said the PS3 doesn't support their game?

Hi PFC_Hudson

 

Got the cable (with built in ethernet channel to - whatever that is).  PS3 detects the screen, 3D, knobs and all.

 

Update.

 

Seems this game doesn't do 3D on the PS3 after all.  I got in touch with GI Games Support and less than an hour ago they replied -

 

"Dear Customer,

 

Unfortunately PS3 doesn't support our game in 3D view.

 

Best regards,

CI Games support"

 

Bummer!

 

Beats the heck out of me where I got the idea this game was in stereoscopic 3D.  Pity.  I could have spent my money on Resistance 3 or something else that does support 3D on the PS3.

 

Oh well.

I know that but the tv/monitor he's using might require it, you never know

For the sake of £3 it's worth buying a V1.4 cable

That's bad of them

There's plenty of PS3 games which support 3D and most of them can be picked up cheaply. Try Da Blob 2, Uncharted 3, Batman Arkham City, Tekken Tag 2 and Super Stardust HD

Thanks for the suggestions.

 

I've got Uncharted 3.  I must say that I already have Unchated 3 and I think in 3D it is superb. I'm currently at the end of the London Underground section and I must say that the tunnels disappearing gradually into the distance and the laser gun sights seeking me out makes the game particuly realistic.  They have to be seen to be believed.

 

Cheers

Most 3D TVs have a 'fake' 3D mode too. Nowhere near as good as real 3D but it might make Ghost Warrior a little more immersive dimensionally
