The article at http://www.forbes.com/...">http://www.forbes.com/2010/02/04/3d-avatar-television-technology-breakth... (WARNING: There is a video game screen shot) has a subtitle of "They're off to a slow start, but the potential for these games is big."
In regards to their potential, the article finishes with:
Quote:"Think of combining a 3-D TV and 3-D gaming with Project Natal," says Patrick Naud, executive producer of the 3-D "Avatar" game, referring to the motion-sensing system for Microsoft's ( MSFT - news - people ) Xbox 360 slated for release later this year. "With the ability to move in 3-D within your living room while seeing your game in 3-D, there are so many possibilities there."
Although this will likely be fairly harmless for most people, my concern is that having a 3-D aspect would make the games more addicting for those of us who are susceptible to that by helping to make it harder to separate reality from fantasy.
