Can I play 3D games on a 360? My Dad just got a new 55" LG 3D HDTV.

If it's active 3D, can't everything convert to 3D?

It's passive 3D, LG only has passive. I also prefer it (brighter image, easier on eyes, no batteries, lighter glasses and no flickering). I also don't notice any difference between the image quality.

Anyhow, LG's 3D TV's have a feature to convert everything to 3D as well. But for 2D stuff the effect varies. It's never to the extent of real 3D stuff, but in some shows it can add a surprising amount of depth (I find that it adds to Seinfeld a good amount). Same goes for games. But since it's turning the 2D into 3D using complex calculations and whatnot, things can also look odd. Anyhow, it's the same thing on active 3D TV's who have the 2D --> 3D conversion.

3D's okay for 360. You'll really get the effect with 3D blu-rays (avatar is like a whole 'nother movie), but from what I've tried the Halo remake is decent. PS3 does 3D gaming better IMO. Gears 3, BlOps 1&2, and AC3 I preferred in 2D.

Hmm, just did some digging about 2D --> 3D conversion and it seems LG's passive 3D comes out on top with that feature. Seems to be especially great for watching sports and certain movies.

Yeah but there aren't very many that support it, I think I have about 5 games that do out of the over a hundred I own.

Stop trolling. The game looks pretty damn great in 3D, especially the running stages.

Too bad the game itself could use some work.

I wasn't trying to troll.. Th resolution literally drops to like 480i... I have a 55" LG 3D TV too. 120hz.

I honestly thought 3d was a dying fad.

I know you know about call of duty, but have you ever played it in 3d?

Man, that commercial was painful, big fat tons of fun trying to be funny.
