E3 2011 video coverage to be shown via Nvidia's 3D Vision tech

If you are here in Los Angeles, you will be able to see all the sights and sounds of E3 2011 next week. But if you are at home and hoping to see video coverage from the show leap out at you, there's only one option. Nvidia has announced this week that its 3D Vision technology will allow video coverage of the show to be supported for the first time in stereoscopic 3D.

The video coverage will be provided by GamerLive.TV and will be shown via YouTube. Nvidia recently announced that it had added 3D Vision support on YouTube, allowing users with the supported glasses and monitors to video 3D enabled games on their 3D PCs and laptops. The 3D Vision support currently only works with the Firefox 4 and above web browsers. Nvidia will also host GamerLive.TV's 3D E3 2011 videos on its own web site.

Despite efforts from Sony, Microsoft and most recently Nintendo with its 3DS portable console, the leader in 3D gaming continues to be the PC. Graphics chip maker Nvidia has lead the pack so far in allowing more and more PC games to support stereoscopic 3D via its 3D Vision tech. Recently the company announced that it will release a cheaper and wired version of its 3D Vision glasses later this June for $99. There are rumors that E3 2011 might be the time for Microsoft to announce that it plans to fully support stereoscopic 3D for its Xbox 360 console and its games.

This is good news, because I much prefer to watch 3D than play games with it.

Even with the best GPU, you lose FPS unless it's an older game and all around makes you not as good of a player as a simple flat image. Would you want to play a tournament with the 3D on?
