While Sony and Nintendo have respectively made much of their console and handheld stereoscopic 3D pushes, Microsoft has mainly sat on the sidelines when it comes to the technology. That may be changing, as today the Xbox 360 maker announced that Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary will feature stereoscopic 3D support when it arrives in stores November 15.
Microsoft has said it is using a "custom made top-and-bottom 3D technology" to allow the game to run in stereoscopic 3D (a 3DTV will still be necessary to view the effect). Attendees to this year's Penny Arcade Expo will be able to see the game in 3D for themselves as part of the show's Halo Fest sub-event.
Developed by 343 Industries, Saber Interactive, and Certain Affinity, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is a rerelease of the original Halo game with a fully remastered campaign, Xbox Live co-op support, and seven bundled multiplayer maps. It will be compatible with the Kinect and will let gamers switch between classic and updated graphics with one button press.
