Get ready to strain your eyes: Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says that half of the games released in 2012 will be in 3D. The CEO also predicted that 15 to 20 percent of titles this year will feature the 3D technology. Goodbye traditional graphics; hello realistic gameplay

“We can count on substantial grown in the 3D market just because it’s more immersive, so it will be a good way for the industry to give even more emotion to the gamers,” Guillemot said during a recent investor’s phone call according to Computer and Video Games.

It’s a wise guesstimate even though it seems a bit high, especially since many people are showing interest in Nintendo 3DS, the PS3 was updated to support 3D TV and iPad games using the Unreal 3D engine have proven to be successful. Xbox, not to be outdone, has partnered in marketing their 3D games with the LG 3D TVs in Asia in May 2010, Engadget reported. It’s a logical development that gaming should be in 3D after the success of 3D movies. But, with all the warnings that 3D might be bad for your eyes it’s a little disconcerting. Are you happy about this 3D trend?
