Just bought a new 3D TV, was wondering if anyone has experience of 3d gaming and if its worth it.
Lag, picture quality, refresh rates are they ok for gaming?

I have a 3D tv and PS3 to watch the DVD's through it is good but I am not so sure about playing games as it starts to make me feel sick after 20 minutes or so and there are only a few games that support 3D

It adds a little to the games. I havent been blown away by it though. I wouldn't buy a game just because it has 3D functionality. Lets put it that way.

I have a Sony Barvia 3D. It handles it well and I havent noticed any frame rate issues from the PS3.

The only 3D film I have is the last Potter one. Thats really good in 3D.

GT5 is a little flat looking. Wipeout is better.
