    Toshiba A2 $98.87 at Wal-Mart this Friday!

    Is it true that 300 and Bourne Supremacy come inside the box of the A3's? I've heard this was true for at least Best Buy.

    Looking at new receivers w/ at least 2 HDMI inputs

    You can get lossless audio, TrueHD, and DD+ with basically any receiver with HDMI 1.1a and up. There are a few that will only do video switching without passing lossless audio. There is no need to get HDMI 1.3 for that since all of the decoding happens on the player side.

    J&R Price for HD-DVD & BD

    Amazon has it for $390 shipped free. If I hadn't bought the Xbox add on drive, I'd probably have already picked one up.

    Superman Returns HD-DVD Review (some spoilers)

    I work in DVD/HDDVD/BD. Warner absolutely uses the same transfer using the exact same bit rate for both BD and HDDVD. VC-1 compression for a feature length movie runs in the tens of thousands of dollars. They're not going to pay for that twice just to up the bit rate for the BD release.

    PSP: Dead Pixels

    It's because Sony is using the absolute cheapest, lowest quality LCD panels to help reduce costs. Anyways, the Blockbuster stores in my area refused to take my PSP back because of dead pixels and instructed me to call Sony. When I called them, the customer service rep told me that dead...

    HTF Fantasy Baseball 2005

    I just joined up, and hopefully I'll be able to make the draft this year unlike last season where my staff aces were Sidney Ponson and Jamie Moyer thanks to the autodraft! I'd prefer a draft time later in the day since I am PST.

    New mini iPod in the mail, New 4G iPod on Newsweek cover

    I meant that the 1st-3rd gen Ipods needed the dock to use USB 2.0, and the unit itself only had a firewire out. Anyways, you are able to hook up the mini directly to the USB 2.0 port on a PC with the included cable without using a dock. I'm hoping that the new Ipods work the same way.

    New mini iPod in the mail, New 4G iPod on Newsweek cover

    Is a USB 2.0 port built into the 4GB Ipod like it is on the Ipod mini? None of my PCs have a firewire port or card.

    2004 Baseball Game Thread!

    Doug, it helps to get a pitch up in the strike zone. Not only do you have to time your swing well, I'm fairly certain that the only way to get the ball up into the air for a homer is pushing the stick up while you take your hack. In the Pro difficulty level, I noticed a lack of homers for...

    For Your Viewing Pleasure: The HULK screen shots on a Plasma...:-)

    Those are some awesome pics! What's the model number of your Panasonic plasma? Also, what DVD player are you using with the set? I don't understand your explanation about the black borders around your pictures. If it's the actual bezel, how is the same black border around your shots of the Fifth...

    Manuel, Once you add chips and a soda to the Atkins Wrap, it kinda defeats the purpose doesn't it? :)

    ALIEN QUADRILOGY discussion thread (including all the glitches)

    Can we PLEASE have a seperate thread about the technical problems with this set? It's a real bitch to have to wade through 2000+ posts of discussion, most of which belongs in the movie section anyways.

    Games you don't know you should have!

    Alanna, Between FF Tactics Advance and Fire Emblem, what's your preference? I got tired of FFTA after about 25 hours of playtime. It's just too damn tedious! I'm not sure if I should give Fire Emblem a shot. Anyways, based on the recommendations here, I just ordered Syberia and Agressive...

    *** Official HD support, 5.1 & 16:9 Game Survey Thread

    So is The Sims Bustin' Out really 720p and 16x9? I'm wary because how many times have we heard this type of info during development, only to be disappointed when the game is finally released. Anyways, I'm buying if it is:)

    Outlaw 950, Denon AVR-3803 or HK 7200

    I love my Outlaw 950. I don't see myself parting with it for quite a while. Billy, it would help to know what components you have, or will have when all your upgrading is done.

    What is the discount rate is for distributors of video games?

    I concur with what Sean posted. Major retailers still pay close to $40 a game. With a 20% markup on software and a 2.5% markup on game systems, it's an extremely tough business. They do make a decent profit on accessories such as cables, controllers, and those extended warranties. Without the...

    Star Wars Galaxies, Worth it?

    I got burnt out after a month. The Star Wars feel is superficial at best and the content is just not there. If you're seriously thinking about playing this game, just keep in mind that you have to have a herculean computer to run it along with at least a gig of RAM.
