So I got a 3D TV and an Xbox One. So far I didn't recognize any 3D capabilities in Dead Rising 3 and FIFA 14. How do I tell if the game or app supports it? For me it's especially interesting if 3D split screen gaming works.

How can I test the 3D gaming possibilities on the devices?

    The Xbox One and PS4 don't support playback of 3D Blu-rays as of now. My guess is it doesn't support stereoscopic 3D for games either. It's very likely that support will be added in some future update, like it was the case for the Xbox 360 and PS3. – Nolonar Dec 26 '13 at 18:48
  • "So I got a 3D TV and an Xbox One" sounds like you've wasted your money. – SaturnsEye Jan 31 '14 at 9:39

    This question's not about money. It's not hard to add 3D support in any 3D-based game, and 3D-capabilities are common in most modern TVs you can buy today. I wonder why game devs don't use it more, as 3D TVs can be used for gaming much better than for movies – Akku Jan 31 '14 at 12:16
  • @Akku, I know there have been higher reports of ill effects after prolonged use of 3D. Not as big an issue for a movie that runs for 2-3 hours, but for a game that users could potentially sit in front of for hours on end, the risk goes up. Balance on top how many people would actually use the 3D, and it becomes a numbers game on "is it really worth it?". I have not seen many games that advertise 3D, but then, I have not heard any promotion, or complaint of the exclusion, of 3D. I see 3D application going more into displaying multiple screens then visual improvement. – user106385 Oct 29 '15 at 23:01

No Xbox One games to date support 3D and the feature has not been announces as of now. As there is no support, there is also no way to test 3D capabilities.

    Any support that did exist would be on the game case. An example of this is the Green Latern Xbox 360/PS3 game that was released. – Ramhound Mar 11 '14 at 16:13

Xbox One got Xbox 360 backward compatibility in 2015, so check out the previous generation's 3D supported game list and stay tuned.

I wonder why Minecraft don't get it, i really liked that feature in the PC version ...

  • But does the console support the 3D? If the game has it, but the console has not got it turned on, yet, the games still not going to have it – user106385 Oct 29 '15 at 22:56
  • Most TV's, games use passive 3D, and supporting that is just an illusion. Supporting active 3D is depending on the HDMI version, and both console have HDMI 1.4, so yes, they are. – Laszlo Oct 29 '15 at 23:37
  • @Timelord64 BTW downvoting by your own ignorance is bad, i would gladly extend my answer to make it more helpful or clear if you ask it in a comment. – Laszlo Oct 30 '15 at 8:36
  • Maybe so, @Tuss, but your only now bringing my attention to it. You can not change your vote on a question that has not changed this long after voting. Also, I downvoted for the commentary, as I was already unsure about the 3D. Since this is a "check and see if that works. stay tuned for the real answer", I feel this is better as a comment, but not as an answer. – user106385 Oct 30 '15 at 8:44
  • @Timelord64 How do I find out if games or apps support 3D on Xbox One? was the question and i posted an answer with a list of the few, soon available 100% 3D supported games. i cant see how this could be just a comment ... – Laszlo Oct 30 '15 at 9:16
