I find it funny, improvements (fixed your spelling) to the 360 are a Legal Call to arms around here. But talk about a fix for the PS3 to upconvert or even play a regular DVD back in a decent fashion (fixed your spelling for you again) , and everyone leaves the room.
cluephone, a fix is just that, a fix. Doesn't require purchasing a whole new unit like getting a 360 with HDMI requires... duh
and FYI, the PS3's 480P playback of SDdvds is just fine. If you have a good scaler in your display, (if you have a good display of course that is..) there's virtually no difference in PQ running 480P and say, letting your display upconvert to it's native res. Same exact thing an upconverting player does. Just does it in a different place along the way. I have an oppo dvd player that is very highly rated for upconversion and at 720P compared to 480P being upconverted by my PJ they are VERY close... I have a 2x1 HDMI switcher and switched back on forth on the same material (2 copies of a DVD...) in many places.
but what do I know. I actually own these things I'm talking about. Do you own a PS3? Do you know how the 480P looks through HDMI? And the 360 can't upconvert SDdvds over component anyways, only through VGA. Many people don't even have VGA inputs on their display. So for many, if you want either HDMI or upconverting of Sd you will need to buy the new 360. Like I said, if I had bought a 360 say last month instead of the PS3. (I went with the PS3 because the HDdvd releases have dried up) I would be a bit peeved. That's what I said about ME. I am allowed to think anyway I like. I didn't say, "Man, I bet all those early adopters are peeved." I said "I would be.." Got it...? Comprendo...?
If you aren't whoopiedoo.
If they released an upgraded Ps3 next year I might be peeved too. These next gen devices were suppossed to be "next gen" meaning they should not be replaced within a damn year.
