With the famous game developers pronouncing that "3D is a gimmick" at the AFDS 2012 conference (separate story coming), turns out some Hollywood and Music stars actually play their games? in 3D.
During the "Future of PC Gaming" session in Bellevue, WA famous game developers such as Chris Taylor (Gas Powered Games), Gareth Thomas (Codemasters), Mark Caldwell (PLAOR) all moved to dismiss the 3D as an contemporary viable gaming model, claiming that "TV manufacturers need to sell something new" to the audience, instead riding on the wave of movies which score 85-95% of their revenue ? by having customers paying for the 3D version.

Few weeks ago, the discrepancy between game developers and Hollywood came to limelight as Snoop Dogg joined the army of celebrity PC gamers. In case you did not know, stars such as Cameron Diaz, Brandon Routh, Chuck Norris, Robin Williams, Tom Cruise, Daniel Craig are all PC gamers (we won?t tell you in what games, though), and just today, we had one of celebrity PC gamers coming to the frame by posting pictures of playing PC shooters such as Battlefield 3 ? in 3D. On a PC.
What to do with the brand new Maingear Potenza? If your name is Snoop, playing Battlefield 3. In 3D.
Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. known under the artistic name Snoop Dogg purchased a custom F-131 system from a boutique vendor MAINGEAR Computers, powered by an Intel Core i7 and GeForce GTX 680 graphics card. More interestingly, Snoop selected an ASUS 27? display with 3D Vision 2 glasses.
Now, while famous game developers might say a thing or two about 3D, the fact of the matter is – if you?re not gaming in 3D, you don?t know what you are missing. Just ask Snoop.
