Sony to give 3D keynote at Develop

Session to be held at cinema as SCE vice president discusses a year of 3D on PS3

Sony Worldwide Studios vice president Mick Hocking is to give a keynote presentation at the Develop Conference in Brighton, focusing on 3D gaming on the PlayStation 3.

The session is entitled "The Stereoscopic 3D Experience: The First Year of 3D on PlayStation 3" and will take place at the Odeon Brighton cinema in full HD stereoscopic 3D on Thursday, July 21 - the third day of the event.

Hocking heads Sony's Worldwide Studios 3D team and is also vice president of the group including London Studio, Evolution Studios, Studio Liverpool and BigBig Studios. He will discuss the transition from promoting 3D gaming to its mainstream acceptance in homes.

"I'm really looking forward to giving this keynote at Develop. I'll be doing a 3D post-mortem from Killzone 3, and also showing how we implemented 3D as an advanced post effect in SOCOM 4. I'll look at how we used a 2D camera for 3D augmented reality in EyePet Move. Actually being able to show these on a big screen with surround sound will make all the difference for the audience," said Hocking.

Further details on the Develop Conference in Brighton, include registration, is available at the official website.
