Microsoft’s Phil Spencer not ready to embrace 3D tech yet

Microsoft the software giant is the biggest software manufacturer and we are expecting some exciting gaming software from them but we have to wait as Microsoft games studio vice president Phil Spencer recently told reporters that they are trying to do things that million of people can enjoy and in today scenario people do not have 3D TV’s in their house, so you have to wait. It was expected that Microsoft will launch 3D gaming to follow Sony in 3D gaming.

Spencer also mentioned that they are not in a business to sell TVs and that is not a part of our business model. Even though, he likes Nintendo’s 3D because it does not require glasses. If we talk about Sony, they sell TV and they can work it out with 3D with glasses.

Xbox 360 a third party developer of Microsoft already delivering titles in 3D but Microsoft games studio waits for the technology to be more widely adopted. While other game manufacturers like EA highlighted next year’s Crysis 2 as a marquee title with 3D support. There is one more game which is the most famous and biggest Call of Duty: Black Ops, it has already demonstrated its implementation of a 3D graphics mode.

Though, new innovations from Microsoft gaming studio, they are fully involved in developing games for Microsoft. Xbox is extremely popular and games have a different interface and experience. PC games developers are innovating new ideas and interfaces for 3D games and the competition will be bigger than it is today. It is really a different experience playing games on HDMI TVs, the screen is broader, clarity is very much attractive but the thing is whether it will be popular among gamers or not.

Based on that speculation, Microsoft will decide to enter the 3D tech market. They are afraid as they are not in the business of TVs and these 3D games require a glass platform. Sony can provide with TV but this is not the case with Microsoft. So, we have to wait for Microsoft’s 3D games, may be they will launch in near future.

Microsoft Not to Invest in 3D

Ball is heading towards the goal post, It’s about to get in and there comes the defender to save it. Excitements in the sports are unexplainable and can not be avoided. What would be your reaction if someone claims that excitement in the ground can be brought to the home? Above that what is if you are a part of that game? Well, this is what 3D gaming defines. You will feel as if you are currently on the ground and recent goal is done by none other than you! It sounds exciting, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, you have to wait for such an enormous experience for few more years. Microsoft was found quoted that to bring 3D gaming in reality is quiet expensive than expected. The gaming world was thrilled when Microsoft declared few weeks ago that they are going to bring the dream into reality. It also claimed they have this plan on the top of their agenda. What the reporters and experts heard in the E3 press conference earlier this week was completely different from their claimed 3D strategy. Thus it seems like gamers all over the world need to have more patience to gain live experience.

Microsoft UK division official said that though the recent launch of televisions and laptops with 3D functionality in electronic consumer market is going to create craze in the upcoming era, the hardware used to acquire this technology is well behind the budget of the ordinary customers. Microsoft products always lie on or little above the average consumer capability. So it is quiet obvious that to acquire high paying rich customers, Microsoft won’t leave their grip on the budget consumer market. Many experts made assumption that when Sony declared that they are going to bring 3D technology in gaming, Microsoft will also take part in competition.

Though Microsoft has changed their mind in 3D strategy, they are not going to be quiet. Officials said that instead they will invest into newly acquired Kinect technology which actually defines motion sensing for gaming. It is developed for Xbox 360 platform. With the help of Kinect, you can play games without even touching game controller. It directs the game motions through natural user interface that includes detection of gestures or commands given by user etc. The interface follows the commands and performs actions in game.

As we all know that to watch the 3D TV we must have special type of glasses. These glasses cost around 100 pounds and are very delicate. If you have a child in the house then you must have to protect glasses from breaking. If you were spectacles than 3D glasses wont fit on your eyes. Now in region like UK where 66% of the population uses glasses, this type of technology will result in nothing but loss of company. Microsoft thus referred 3D technology in entertaining electronic devices as a ‘fad’ to which they were claiming a revolution few days ago. Microsoft’s decision, no doubt, is going to make roots of Sony in the gaming market if they come up with 3D in near future.

Fedora 13 Out In Market With Python 3 And Open 3D Drivers

The latest version of the Fedora is out in the market to surprise the users with its amazing performance. Known as Goddard, this device has got inbuilt proprietary drivers in the system. The earlier versions of Fedora have lacked this feature in their systems and hence, one would have to install proprietary drivers separately to start working with the 3D gaming or composite windows. There was a tremendous hard work applied to get the best idea and implementation for replacing the proprietary drivers and the latest Fedora is one of its kinds. After several months of hard work on research and implementation, an open source graphics drivers which do not need any sort of proprietary work has been developed.

Using these drivers working on the Gnome 3 interface and running a composite window manager would be easy. Now, it is possible for the users of Fedora to start using the platform without installing the proprietary drivers. The latest Fedora 13 supports NVIDIA, ATI and the Intel graphics card and the users can play 3D games as well as work on the composite windows at a time. The major result of this release is with the Gnome 3 interface. The user interface of the new Gnome is more robust with several display features and rich graphics. Last year, the version 11 of Fedora had a major overhaul in the software.

Intially, there were some problems with its introduction in Distro and all these problems and drawbacks were taken care of through the version 12 release. With the advancement to version 13, the installation process of the Fedora has improved to a greater extent. The design is very intuitive and provides less intimidating partitions for the new users. The users can make a choice of whether they would like to use the entire partition or to use the partitions made by the operating system. There is good news for the software developers as the use of these embedded proprietary drivers has enabled the use of Python 3 Stack installation and working on the Fedora platform.

The series up to 2.6 can be used and worked with the new features of the Fedora. Not just the installation and the regular files, third party modules are also included in the Python Suite for the open source software developers to make use of. With this the software developer would find it easy to expand to the higher versions of the Python programming. The Gnome 2.30 user interface now is shipped with Fedora 13. There are options such as split pane window in the Nautilus browser which is mostly preferred and considered as the default rather than choosing spatial which was previously the default browser of the Fedora systems.

Fedora 13 had improved face book chatting programmed with instant messaging application. There is also improved iPod compatibility in the latest version of Fedora. New tools have helped in the installation processes through the use of Package Kit. There is also a definite support for the color management and working with the color profiles of the system.
