Nvidia Corp. this week announced that it would bundle its 3D Vision wireless stereo-3D glasses kit with a copy of Duke Nukem Forever video game. The offering will be active for a limited amount of time only.

 

Starting this week, and for a limited time, Nvidia 3D Vision wireless glasses kits include a free copy of Duke Nukem Forever. Gamers in the North America can purchase the 3D Vision Duke Nukem Forever special edition for $149 in electronic stores like TigerDirect.com, Newegg.com and NCIX. Otherwise, one can look for a 3D Vision Duke Nukem Forever special edition bundle at a local retail store.

"Duke Nukem looks better than ever. Once limited only to MS-DOS graphics, today Duke bursts out of the screen with full 3D Vision support, Nvidia Surround support and HD graphics.  Imagine hunting down aliens at up to 5760*1080 resolution in a completely immersive experience," said Andrew Fear, a senior product manager of consumer stereoscopic 3D products at Nvidia Corp.

Nvidia 3D Vision kit, which includes a pair of stereo-3D glasses (with IR receiver) and an IR emitter now costs $149.

In order to take advantage of Nvidia 3D Vision, which allows to build a stereo-3D-supporting gaming or multimedia system, one should not only acquire Nvidia-proprietary S3D glasses, but also a display or an HDTV certified for usage with Nvidia 3D Vision hardware and of course an appropriate high-performance GeForce graphics card. At present there is a significant number of full-HD displays and HDTVs supporting the 3D Vision technology.
