Nvidia 3d Vision Discover: 3d Gaming on Your Pc for Free

by Lambert Varias

As news of the 3D version of the Batman: Arkham Asylum hit, Kotakuite deanbmmv pointed out that people who bought the PC version of the game don’t need to re-buy it because there’s already a way to play it – and other PC games – in 3D for free… as long as you have an NVIDIA graphics card.

The NVIDIA driver will use anaglyph images – red and cyan, as shown above – to produce the 3D effect, and of course you’ll need to wear glasses with red and cyan filters to see the effect. If you’re not okay with that, then skip the rest of the article. If you’re fine with that, the first thing that you should do is to make sure that you have the latest NVIDIA drivers.

You can go to NVIDIA’s website to download the drivers. Once you’ve done that, restart your computer, then navigate to “Start>All Programs>NVIDIA Corporation>3D Vision and click on “Enable 3D Vision Discover.” All that’s left to do is to test it on your games; deanbmmv says that if your game uses DirectX, then it can probably be played in 3D. Check out his post on Press X or Die for more details.

    Interesting. I played the true 3D version of Arkham Asylum, wearing 3D shutter glasses at CES (demoed in the LG booth, using an nVidia card). It really looked great, but I’m not sure how good the old anaglyph method will work. But whaddya want for free, eh?

    curious to know if the GOTY version for the PS3 will come in 3D since they will be getting a 3D update in the summer time.
