As I said about AMD's 3D thread and article yesterday, nausea, headaches and motion sickness aren't something I suffer with until you give me 3D glasses to wear.
"Is it just a fad?" Yes. Will we all want to play normal games again soon, yes.
"I remember when people said that things like anti-aliasing, tessellation and shader would be niche for game developers, and all those technologies have sort of become the default."

We're also designing our 3D Vision monitors with this 120Hz technology, which has benefits when you're not using 3D – you get the a really fast response time at 120Hz, so if you just want to do 2D you get an incredibly smooth gaming experience, and you simply don't get that with passive monitors today.

somewhere in the middle. I you look at the data
doubling from year to year, and will probably to continue to double in sales until about 2014
In fact, the core gaming audience is getting more excited about 3D in some cases than SLI.

I appreciate that you have issues with the 3D system (aforementioned nausea e.t.c.), but I think within the next 2-3 years it will become very economical to do 3D in the home. Who knows, maybe they will invent a head tracking system via something like Kinekt and incorporate 3D into that.

Prototype holographic displays exist (currently only in one colour, though) so I say we'll get there eventually...
they remember the days of Elsa Revelator glasses and they say: 'Oh I saw it, it was horrible and it was no good.'
Nvidia, bringing out its 3D Vision kits back in 2008

We then take those two images, send them to a monitor running at 120Hz
but the reality was that it didn't work well. There wasn't really a strong motivation to partner together and produce a high quality experience where the glasses worked great with the display and the drivers worked properly, so it kind of all failed.
If I said you'd be playing with a plastic guitar in your living room, ... But Guitar Hero was one of the best-selling games ever
