Is 3D a phase that will soon pass us by, or is it a trend that will dominate the future of entertainment? Time will tell, but at the moment, all the momentum is definitely pointing towards the fact that 3D is here to stay. To add to that, Microsoft has confirmed that it is the next to board the 3D bandwagon, as the Xbox 360 will soon support 3D gaming.

In an interview with Develop, Blitz Game Studio’s co-founder Andrew Oliver said that Microsoft is planning on 3D on the Xbox 360, eventually.

“Microsoft are going to be making an announcement about it at some point soon,” Oliver said. The vagueness of the date is likely going to be resolved at E3 next week.

Sony today announced that it will soon be releasing four games in 3D: WipEout HD, Super Stardust HD, PAIN, and playable demo of MotorStorm Pacific Rift. Sony recently released a patch for the PlayStation 3 that will allow the console to support 3D gaming when paired with a 3D TV.

“There’s lots of games coming on the PlayStation 3 very shortly in 3D. There’s a big show on next week,” said Oliver. “On the Xbox it [3D] has been rather quiet,” he added.

Oliver also stated that 3D games take a little extra time to develop, so any current announcement will likely follow a long silence while developers retool upcoming Xbox 360 games for 3D.

As with all gaming news this week, expect more info during E3.
