Toronto, Ontario, Canada– March 30, 2010– Many see video games as the driver that will bring 3D to the home. The S-3D Gaming Alliance (S3DGA) is the first and only, non-profit and non-proprietary organization focused on making this market successful. The S3DGA is the event sponsor of the upcoming 3D Gaming Summit TM taking place on April 21st and 22nd in Universal City, Calif. and S3DGA’s next meeting will be held at 5PM on the 22nd.

“While stereoscopic 3D gaming now includes console, PC, and mobile devices; the industry is still very divided on direction, hardware support, quality expectations, standards, and more. As we continue to join forces and share ideas, we will work to correct this,” said Neil Schneider, Executive Director of the S3DGA.

S3DGA members include Electronic Arts, Blitz Games Studios, LG Electronics, Real D, NEXT3D, iZ3D, HDMI Licensing, Sensio, and more. Advisory board members include Alan Price of Electronic Arts Canada, Jon Peddie of Jon Peddie Research, Neil Trevett, President of the Khronos Group, and Habib Zargarpour, Consulting Art Director for Electronic Arts’ Need For Speed SHIFT.
