    3D glasses advice Xbox 360

    I ended up with a Sony TV for free for my kid's room. I read the specs and it has 3D, but no glasses.

    I see there are some 360 games that have 3D, like Assassin's Creed and Arkham
    a) Is it worth trying to for the novelty value?
    b) What glasses would I need to get? Active? Passive? Recommends?

    Quite a lot of the 360 games with 3d support used old fashioned red and green glasses so best to investigate first. Sine Mora was quite smart in 3d.
    IIRC Sony TVs generally used active 3d glasses.

    Being brutally honest, I probably wouldnít bother. You will be able to track down third party sets of glasses that will work - itís the active shutter sort that you need for that TV, based on some brief googling - but I donít think 3D support on the 360 was especially widespread or well executed. Worth it if you can get the specs for a couple of quid, maybe.

    You might have more fun connecting a Blu-ray player or PS3 and watching some 3D films (the discs are really cheap now). But 32Ē might be a bit on the small side to get the full experience to be honest.

    The PlayStation Screen was smaller than that and was still fine for 3D.
    I always found active 3D too dark to enjoy the effect in anywhere but the darkest of rooms.

    Yes that’s true. It needs to be dark or you can see the flicker.

    I had a lot of fun with this in the heyday of 3D. I never had many 360 games due to the fragility of the hardware but did have most of the PS3 titles. I had fun with one of the Tekkens (I forget which) and God of War Collection, there were probably others but sadly my TV no longer does 3D. Maybe those that do will be like the CRTs of the future. Highly collectable.

    I remember on LG passive screens you were able to swap the lenses about so that in 2 player mode the screen could be expanded to fill the entire screen using the 3D functions but you could only see your player. It didn't really work that well but I thought it was interesting to mess about with at the time.

    Anyway if you have a 3DS its pretty much like that but bigger. Sometimes tricky to focus your eyes but when you do, a fun experience. I liked it, as I like gimmicky things.

    The Trine games in 3D are stunning. Dunno if XBox has those?

    I thought that was only on active sets? The PS Screen called it "Simult-view" or something.
