Only add in this section if any of the table fields apply.

The VR support section handles all 3D and VR-related software and hardware support for a game.

Example

The table holds all the relevant information for the section. It is split up into 2 distinct sub-sections:

  • 3D modes
  • Devices

General rules

  • Fill in all the fields for 3D modes, but only fill in the applicable fields for Devices.
  • GameGrade3D (GG3D) is a database focused on assessing the quality of stereoscopic 3D modes used in games.
    • The community-driven aspect of grading may make it difficult to pinpoint the award level for the respective field. As such, the award level with the most submissions is the overall award level for the mode (ignore sub-ratings).
      • Ex. If a entry has 3 Platinum awards but also 6 Gold awards, set the relevant award field to gold

Field breakdown

Field Definition How to find Notes
Native 3D Support for native stereoscopic visuals (i.e. independent implementation not reliant on 3rd party software). The developers will state either on the store page or elsewhere support for the mode. Sometimes support is already included with certain game engines.
NVIDIA 3D Vision Support for NVIDIA 3D Vision, a complete stereoscopic gaming kit. The developers or Nvidia will state either on the store page or elsewhere support for the mode. A full list of officially supported games can be found on Nvidia's website.
TriDef 3D Support for TriDef 3D, an application that enables stereoscopic visuals for 2D-only games and media. A full list of officially supported games can be found on TriDef 3D's website.
iZ3D Support for iZ3D, an application that enables stereoscopic visuals. A full list of officially supported games can be found on iZ3D's website (archived). The developers of iZ3D went bankrupt in mid-2012. As such, the software is no longer actively supported and is considered obsolete.
3RD Space Gaming Vest Support for the 3RD Space Gaming Vest. A full list of officially supported games can be found on TN Games's website.
Creative Senz3D Support for the Creative Senz3D, a gaming-centric Time-of-flight (ToF) web camera. All supported games can be found on the offical app store.
Leap Motion Controller Support for the Leap Motion Controller, a sensor-based controller. All supported games can be found on the offical app store.

Oculus Rift Support for the Oculus Rift, a virtual reality (VR) headset. The developers will state either on the store page or elsewhere support for the headset. Very rare feature. Support should be expected to become more prevalent once a consumer version of the device is made available.
Razer Hydra Support for the Razer Hydra, a motion and orientation-focused controller. A list of officially supported games can be found on Wikipedia. Previously known as Sixense TrueMotion. No longer sold or supported by Razer.
TrackIR Support for the TrackIR, an optical motion tracking controller. A full list of officially supported games can be found on NaturalPoint's website.
