    12% of us can't translate 3D images properly, apparently.

    more than one in ten of us (12%)
    Isn't one in ten of us, 10% or it should be one in twelve.

    I had suspected that I'd have problems seeing some films in 3d - but I recently saw Shrek 4 without any issues ... although I did have to wear both my own glasses as well as the funky 3d ones.

    My mum and stepdad are both blind in one eye, so they aren't particularly excited about 3D.

    1 in 10 = 10 in 100 so 10%
    12 in 100 = 1.2 in 10 so 12%

    12% is more than 1 in 10, makes sense to me

    I can't use them, due to a problem with my left eye. Can't say I'm too bothered. I've used it in the past, always fell distinctly in the 'gimmck' category for me, rather than "wow, wish I could watch everything like this".

    Gimmick is the correct word! Having only just got a HDTV I'm not spending out on a new one for several years no matter how keen Sony are for me to do so.

    Also I keep thinking that the majority of 3d games will just be 3d film tie ins - just the sort of thing I want to avoid!

    I'm in that 12% - lazy eye.

    I can watch short amounts of 3D, but really have to concentrate to do it, and quite frankly from what I have seen, I'm not missing much.

    Well I'm firmly in that 12% then seeing that 50% of my eyes are plastic.

    Nothing wrong with good old 2D. Fact.

    3D works for me however it does cause eye strain after a film so I don't think an evening gaming in 3D is a good idea. I would also watch most normal programs in 2D as well, has see the point of watching News24 in 3D!

    I could imagine it being pretty interesting in very short burts on a vertical shooter something akin to Ikaruga but for anything longer than 10 minutes I think it would play havoc on my eyes. I don't really see it working terribly well for other types of games. As cheesemp said, it'll more than likely be mostly move tie-ins we see.
