Sony Computer Entertainment has teamed up with the University of Central Lancashire in the UK to provide 3D stereoscopic rendering as part of a final year game development course. Three graduates at the university worked closely with Sony's PlayStation 3D technology experts to incorporate the technology into their final year projects, including research into methods for making 3D stereoscopic games run faster. Another 40 students at the university were also involved in an SCEE trial that looked into whether stereoscopic 3D users have a competitive advantage in gaming over those who do not. The company is planning to present its findings at the 3D Entertainment Summit in Los Angeles this week. Simon Benson, senior development manager at SCEE, commented, "I've been extremely impressed with the graduates' work and it shows what potential they have going into the gaming industry." "It's been great working with UCLan because the staff are keen to move with developments and have taken on board a vision of 3D gaming. They are providing their students with industry informed skills that are very much needed in the future of gaming."
