If so can someone find me the source of the article they read it in? I'm stuck between getting a normal LED TV or 3D TV, I don't want to pay for 3D if Wii U doesn't use it because it will be the only purpose of the TV, to play games.

Conceptually I think anything outputting to a 3d is capable as the TVs have the ability to convert 2 side by side images into a 3d one (the BBC did this with the Olympics broadcast). So even if it didn't explicitly support it developers could get 3d images out of the system using that approach.

It could, as some PS3 and 360 games have been made to display 3D on TVs that support it. But no one has yet said they will make a 3D game.

Already have a topic on this: Wii U still supporting 3D

Yes you should get a 3D TV because 3D is awesome!

The WiiU, at the moment, does not support 3D TV's or 3D games.

The system could get patched later down the line to support the feature though.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

Where did you hear that?

"If you are going to connect Wii U with a home TV capable of displaying 3-D images, technologically, yes, it is going to be possible," Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata told the Mercury News when asked if the Wii U would support 3-D, "but that's not the area we are focusing on."

Possible yes. That doesn't mean WiiU will support 3D or 3D TV's at launch.

He even says "It's going to be possible", so obviously it's not possible at the moment.

It has been announced that the Wii U will support 3D TVs, but not at launch. It was rumoured to be in the near future though, and apart from the Wii U, there are many other nice perks that accompany owning a 3D TV, so why not go for it? :D

It's definitely possible, it costs them nothing more to make it possible. The question is whether there will be games that support it or not and that's upto the developers really. The PS3 and 360 didn't support 3D from the start because there was no need to and no standard for it. There is a standard now and some devs just went "ok, we'll do it now"... that's all it takes really.

As for 3D vs non-3D TV. Get whatever seems the best value as a 2D screen. 3D screens are generally better at displaying 2D content anyways so if you're after a good screen you'll probably want to get a 3D one. Only go with a 2D screen if it's a real bargain and you're on a budget.

Wow, you tried hard to prove that your comment was correct. Do you know what going means? Here's a hint, it doesn't just mean something in the future.
