Rumor: Full stereoscopic 3D coming to Xbox 360

Full stereoscopic 3D is coming to Xbox 360, according got a Eurogamer source “familiar with Xbox 360 development”. In lamens terms, the 3D offered by PlayStation 3 for some time now, which hits the eye at 720p, will soon be available on Xbox 360.

“They’d be mad not to do it, is all I can say,” said the source. “The machine is not only very capable, it’s more capable than the PlayStation 3 of doing stereo, assuming you don’t have one of the old crappy ones with the composite leads… assuming you have a HDMI Xbox.

“The bottleneck is more on the graphical throughput for rendering out in stereo.”

As for when it’ll be announced, the source hinted at it being E3 next month.

“E3 is coming up. Microsoft is going to have to go on stage to say something, aren’t they?”

E3 begins June 7. Microsoft will hold their annual press conference the day before on June 6.
