GTA 5 3D Ready?

Currently none of Rockstar's games are available in 3D, but if Max Payne 3 isn't the first to incorporate this functionality, what better game to start than their sure-to-be blockbuster GTA V?

As an owner of a 3D TV I have checked out a large amount of content from both sports, movies and games and it's clear to me that animated content seems to work best in 3D. As video games are animated, I can't imagine it's huge deal to add this functionality to a game, although admittedly I don't have any experience in this field. One thing I do know is playing GTA 5 in 3D would be awesome. Just imagine smashing your car through a wooden fence and seeing shrapnel flying out of your tv. Or dodging a bullet as it whizzes past your head. Or getting blood in your eyes while blasting someone with a shotgun from close range!
Personally I would be surprised if Rockstar don't include this feature in Max Payne 3, as I think it would work well with "bullet time". If they do decide to do that, the experience could easily be transferred to GTA 5 and it would be a shock (to me at least) if the game doesn't make use of the technology available.
How about you? Would you like to play through Grand Theft Auto V in 3D? Would the feature encourage you to get a 3D TV (if you don't already)? Or do you consider it a gimmick that doesn't interest you? Let us know in the comments below!
