3D support confirmed for Halo Anniversary

Having previously downplayed the significance of 3D visuals in the games market, Microsoft has announced further first-party support for the tech.

CVG reports that the platform holder showed off a 3D build of upcoming Xbox remake Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary at Gamescom the week before last. 3D support had already been rumoured.

"If you’ve got the technology you definitely want to take advantage of it," said 343 Industries’ Dennis Reis stated.
"Guilty Spark is a fun level to show 3D because you’re in the jungle, you’ve got foliage going by, plasma bolts flying over your head… it’s a fun way to increase the immersion of the game and again if you’ve got the technology, you definitely want to take advantage of it."

The news follows last week’s announcement that fellow Xbox 360 exclusive Gears of War 3 would ship with full stereoscopic 3D support.

With games like Crysis 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops also boasting 3D visuals on the system, Xbox 360 is slowing building a catalogue of titles that offer the functionality – though it still falls far behind Sony and its widespread 3D support.
