When film makers move away from the "OMG! Throwing things at you!!" model of 3D cinematography and move towards a more natural version of 3D that provides depth to scenes, then we'll know it's a mature technology.
Until then, it's just gimmickry, certainly in movieland.

It wasn't talking about 3D gaming, it was talking about converting a stereoscopic 3D picture (like the ones at the cinema or on 3D BluRays) into a multi-view auto-stereoscopic 3D image; THIS is what takes the processing power, especially given that they've only got a limited amount of time to do that processing. No mention of gaming anywhere.

Is there anyone else here who instead of reading a hardware or game review, skips to the end conclusion page?

Hate the pop out of screen stuff though
