Super Stardust HD was originally at full HD resolution was it was released a few years ago, running at full 1080p resolution. With the 3D update, running the game in 3D mode only runs at 720p but at a whopping 120fps (60fps per eye). Luckily, full HD resolution is retained on a normal HDTV.
2D split-screen mode has been updated from 30fps to 60fps and 4x antialiasing has been added to to the 2D mode at 720p and 1080p resolutions. So summarize, the 3D patch includes the following changes:
- 3D mode of the game running 720p at 120fps (60fps per eye)
- 2D mode of split screen co-op mode updated from 30fps to 60fps
- 4x antialiasing support in 720p and native 1920×1080p support in 2D mode
The 3D update is free to all existing SSHD gamers enhancing also the 2D mode, so don’t forget to update your game even though you haven’t got your 3D television (yet)!
