VGE enhancer

PDF spec/sell sheet

It sounds like a crock to me, especially given the $40 price tag.

What does everyone else think?

What a load of shit. Extra SVM in a box. It might have some DVNR to remove picture detail as well.

Ugh.

Aaah, yes, of course that makes sense! Using composite connecters with edge enhancement would lead to a much better picture than component or VGA outputs, wouldn't it!

Does Not Add Up.
mmm, thats odd.

Ummm ... guys ....

Didn't you see the before and after pictures shown in the ad? This is a miracle device!

Wow! It allows you to personalise the gaming enhancement for any gaming title, including RPGs, sports sims, adventure games and flight sims! I was really worried that the thing wouldn't support FIFA titles, but it does!

Also, "the VGE has controls to change from 32/64-bit clarity to 128-bit, depending on the console or DVD player", which is a relief, because my Playstation uses a different RCA format to output than my Dreamcast does!

Can! I! Use! A! Few! More! Exclamation! Marks?!!!!
mmm, thats odd.

Update - I found a review, complete with Soul Calibur grabs.
Here is the screenshot page. See how the original SC grab looks a bit blurry, but generally lovely. Then look at the two 'enhanced' ones. Yuck! Apparently, enhancement really consists of knocking the contrast totally out of whack so everything turns into a glowing mess.
mmm, thats odd.

Iain,

Thanks for the info. A picture is worth a thousand words!

Hey, we have the same last name...I wonder!
