New Black Ops 2 footage promotes new LG 3D TVs
Things are certainly heating up when it comes to promoting the big three titles – Assassin’s Creed 3, Black Ops II and Halo 4. However, it’s the latest game from the Call of Duty franchise we’re most interested in today, as a new Black Ops 2 trailer has just been released and it’s promoting the new range of LG 3D TVs.
When the first Black Ops game was released it was also in 3D, and for some did not add the kind of excitement that we were promised. That was almost two years ago and we can say with almost certainty that your 3D experience will be far better now because the likes of LG, Samsung, Panasonic and Sony have upped their game when it comes to their 3D TV technology.
The latest (exclusive) footage is taken from the single-player campaign, and you can clearly see in the video below that LG are trying to prove what the best way to play this game will be. Personally I have never liked LG for their TVs, so not sure they will offer the best experience. I’ve always stuck with Samsung because they are a much better option than their Korean rivals. Having said that, if money were no object then a 140-inch Panasonic 3D projector would be my first choice.
Having said that true gamers would much rather the 2D option because it offers a higher frame rate than 3D, and another disadvantage is the delay with 3D while playing in multiplayer. However, as we said above this technology is improving all the time, so we don’t expect the differences to be as huge with playing Black Ops 2 in 3D this time.
This will not be a huge issue for some gamers though and will get the full 3D Black Ops 2 experience because they never play online. To them they love to get into the story of the game, which is what the developers and voice actors have worked hard to achieve. Having said that, the developers and publishers know that the real money is with multiplayer, where else would they generate the kind of revenue they do from DLC etc?
