PS3 holographic gaming currently in the works

3D multi-player action also on the Sony gaming radar

PS3 owners could soon embrace 'holographic' gaming after comments made by a SCEE exec suggested the company is working on the technology for its flagship console.

In an interview discussing the importance of 3D innovation, SCEE studio director Mick Hocking commented on the next potentially innovative gaming step saying, "We also have techniques like holographics for the PS3 that I think will be very interesting for the future 3D games.”

Sony were of course the first and so far the only one of the major console players to adopt 3D gaming and Hocking revealed that the company is already looking at ways of maximising its appeal:

“In regards to that we have some new technology that we’ve shown to developers that uses 3D techniques, it allows two players to play full screen multi-player games but without each being able to see the others view, and they have been massively keen on them.”

Hocking also believes there is more to 3D than just the PS3 saying, “This isn’t just about adding 3D to the PS3 – there’s a whole wave of new technologies and techniques that make use of 3D and the 3D hardware that we can use to enhance our games with in the future.”

With 3Dradar having recently reported that holographic TVs could be with us by 2017, Gran Turismo: Hologram Edition may not be that far away.
