    These sites are blocked here at work, so I can't view them. :rolleyes:

    However, surely the 3D effect is just done in the graphics card driver, like nvidia's 3D Vision? What does this game do differently from any other?

    Not a novelty on the pc, on consoles maybe. I might be wrong though, since I don't own one. Eh same here, I'm on my phone, so I can't view the videos.

    The few detractors I found with the 3D visuals had to with the overall quality of the images on-screen. Since images need to be rendered twice when you have 3D turned on (you can turn it on or off at any time during gameplay) the developers at Treyarch had to scale the visuals back a bit in terms of overall quality. Thankfully the framerate was always sturdy despite the almost constant frenetic action. The other downside to the 3D capability was that some background images seem to distort to looking like the screen sans glasses (despite them being firmly affixed to my face), but that will hopefully be remedied by the time Call of Duty: Black Ops hits shelves.

    Important bit from article. :toast:

    This method works pretty good the red and blue or green for 3D but it also makes every thing appear to be with out any real color only shades of greys blacks and whites at least thats what my eyes see.

    ...will be 3D compatible on every system (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC with the proper NVIDIA chipset)
    That almost sounds as if ATi/AMd users are out of the concept here, hmmm...

    Am I right in thinking that for steroscopic 3d you need to be able to render at 120fps or??

    Afaik yes, if you want 3d. So that leaves a big portion of us out.
