The Consumer Electronics Association indicates that 25 percent of self identifying gamers indicated they are interested in 3D gaming at home. Additionally, half of those that had seen a 3D movie said they’d be interested in 3D games.

“It’s the first time I’ve ever seen new televisions coupled with games as a promotion,” said CEA’s chief economist Shawn DuBravac, “and that’s really exciting.”

DuBravac thinks that there’s a voice with iPad-like devices and that sales of such devices could lead to more gamers. He also noted that while eight percent of consumers have doubts about 3D technology, the number halves after they see it in action.

Games can be a great driver for consumer technology, such as what the PS2 did for DVDs, what the PS3 is doing for Blu-ray and what the Xbox 360 and PS3 are doing for HD TVs.
