3D gaming to invade Japanese arcades

Arcades are a dying breed in the West, but they have an enduring popularity in Japan, that is about to get a boost with glasses-free 3D machines.

SI Electronics will shortly launch a new technology that will handle HD graphics in 3D with minimal performance cost.

The system will be revealed at the Amusement Machine Show in the Chiba prefecture of Tokyo this week, but is based around a 800Mhz IBM PowerPC processor.

This is yet more proof that the games industry is keen to adopt 3D in a big way, and if it takes off in Japan, the birthplace of most established video game trends, then we'll be one step closer to mass adoption elsewhere.
