Its probably worth mentioning that 1080p 60 frames per second 3D isn't actually supported by hdmi so it would be impossible for the wii u to support at launch anyway as its not part of hdmi 1.4. Its clearly perceived as too demanding for current hardware and may be introduced with the next revision of the hdmi specification. Current 1080p 3D video is limited to 24fps.

The display hardware might take a 24fps 1080p 3D signal and then create extra frames to create 60fps but that has nothing to do with the wii u console.

Also I don't understand why a thread about the wii u console and what it is capable of generating with regard 3D should focus on how different displays show 3D. Its not relevant to the thread at all.

This thread should be about a discussion about how powerful the wii u console is with regards its gpu and cpu which will govern the resolution and frame rate of what the wii u will be capable of with regard 3D. The wii u will have to support hdmi 3D and that governs the type of video and format it will generate.

The latest version of the HDMI standard establishes critical infrastructure for implementing 3D video in the home, defining input/output protocols that will allow 3D displays and source devices to communicate through an HDMI link. It’s a major milestone on the path to bringing true 3D gaming and 3D home theater to the mass market, supporting resolutions up to 1080p in 3D.

3D technology is evolving rapidly, with several competing approaches under development, so the HDMI 1.4 specification establishes protocols for a number of popular 3D display methods, including:
Frame, line, or field alternative methods
Side by side methods (full and half)
2D plus depth methods

A complete list of the supported 3D formats can be found in the HDMI 1.4 specification.

How to Ensure 3D in your Home Theater System
Look for devices that include 3D functionality.
All High Speed HDMI cables will support 3D when connected to 3D devices. You can use your existing High Speed HDMI cables or choose a different cable type. (more)



Again. Nintendo isnt going to go out of its way to support something practically nobody owns.

If they DO decide to support 3d, its going to be on the controller with a SCREEN on it that everyone who owns a wii u will have.

And then they will utilize the same overhead mitigatinv method thats in the 3ds.
