Thats a good idea tyrant,I may have to give that a shot. The media is always good at putting pressure on companies, as much as I may despise them at times.
I was mostly drawn by the good deal, I'm just glad I knew exactly what I was getting into, as I did with the ps3. The set had some nasty overscan, and a couple geometry issues, but nothing some test patterns, patience, and service menu access couldn't fix. I'm quite satisfied with my TV, and very happy with the ps3, I just wish my game selection wasn't so limited.
And I will say, there are some games that don't look too bad in 480p, like heavenly sword, and folklore. They would look better if I could play them in HD, but in the case of folklore I'm willing to compromise for an enjoyable play experience.
