Moore “absolutely” Looking In To Creating 3D Content For PS3

January 27, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

EA Sport‘s boss Peter Moore has predicted that sports will be the biggest driver of 3D gaming’s growth, and would “absolutely” consider creating 3D content for the PlayStation 3.

Speaking in an interview with CVG, Moore believes that sports game would lead the way under the 3D category.

As James Cameron did with Avatar at the movies, you’ve got to build [games] from the ground up with 3D in mind. None of the games I’ve seen [so far] have been built that way – they’ve been regular games running in 3D. The real secret sauce will be when somebody says: ‘I’m going to build this game specifically for a 3D platform.

When asked if EA Sports could make a game out of it:

Absolutely. I’m not making any announcements, but it’s no coincidence that of the 3D [TV] broadcasts I’ve seen in the last two years, I can count the NBA All-Star event in Las Vegas, while ESPN has announced 3D programming – perhaps even a full channel. There have also been a number of announcements around the [football] World Cup, with some games broadcast in 3D

This is reminiscent of where we were with HD five or six years ago. It seems like a lifetime ago now, but you’d go to CES and be in awe of HD – and it was sports games that showed up the technology

Moore also states that there is a great opporunity for 3D to be introduced to the company:

I think there’s great opportunity for EA to bring sports to life in unbelievably imaginative ways, once we can grasp what 3D means to us
