"NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ technology is a combination of Graphics Processor Units (GPU), specialized 3D glasses, software, and certified displays and projectors that deliver an immersive 3D experience on your PC or workstation." -taken from NVIDIA site

Yeah sorry I dont see myself running out to buy a new graphics card, special 3d glasses, and a special monitor to fight dinos in space.

Hope someone tries this out as I would very much like to know how well it is though :)

While it does require a few extra peripherals and only a sliver of the PC ORION community will be able to utilize it - it will be EXTREMELY neat and we cannot wait to demo it out early next year!

Petty cool, I won't be able to use the 3D since my laptop only has a 60hz display, but I imagine the benefits of this partnership will go beyond having the game playable in 3D. Is PhysX a possibility?

Nice. Can't wait for the release
I love the multiplayer beta.
The addition of dinosaurs only makes me want this MORE.

While i'm not too keen on this whole 3d craze (waiting for it to mature beyond expensive peripherals and its overuse as a marketing gimmick), an nvidia partnership certainly is big news! Congratulations guys.

They really do need to mainstream it to fully encompass the market - Agreed.

3D gaming & Digital Distribution are looking like key players in the next generation of consoles (which is still quite a few years off).

Confused. Source games in general are supported by nvidias 3d glasses technology so therefore any mod can use 3d glasses. I played many hl2 mods with stereoscopic glasses as well.

This is a bit different as those are simply visual layers that poorly allow the 3D experience.

We are using the tools, technology and private technology alongside NVIDIA to develop the PC version of Prelude with 3D from the ground up.

Also, 'ORION: Prelude' is not using the Source engine - it is using UE3.
