The first console 3D SDK has been launched by developer Darkworks.
The license for the new tech was brought from TriOviz, a Paris-based vision science specialist.
The technology allows 3D to be added-on to console and PC games during or after development. It can then be viewed through special glasses on 2D or 3D displays, or without the glasses from a 2D display.
The 3D tool supports all current game engines, and Darkworks have said that it will require as little as a couple of days to integrate, “depending on implementation”.
“Darkworks is keen to bring a truly innovative technology to top game developers and publishers in order to make the 3D experience a reality today,” said Darkworks MD Guillaume Gouraud.
“Consoles already broadcast 3D interactive content in real-time and their interactivity – by nature – empowers game developers to make a more immersive experience than is possible in movies,” he added.
Darkworks have said that the SDK is currently being adopted by several developers.
