Microsoft released these a while ago, and I believe they have more available. You can check them out here.

For some reason they won't play smoothly on my PC. I have watched other 720p WMV-HD trailers with no problems but these won't play. It's just a very slow slide show. Yes, I downloaded them to my hard drive.

What kind of system do you have? For some reason some of the videos will skip frames (not like a slide-show however) even on my 7800 GT, AMD 3500+ setup using Windows Media Player, yet they all play smoothly using nStantMedia.

It's an AthlonXP 1800+ with a 6600 GT. Like I said, I haven't had any problems before playing 720p's (1080i's are a different story). In fact, I have some movie trailers on the hard drive that play fine.

All other 720p and 1080p trailers run perfectly on my system, but I was explaining that for some reason some of these game trailers give me trouble with WMP. You know there is a problem when the 1080p Alexander trailer runs smoothly but a 720p game trailer doesn't. Cpu utilization doesn't even reach 35% yet frames skip under WMP.

In ZoomPlayer the video is fine but the audio is choppy. I guess I just can't have both. I don't have nStant Media.

If these are the trailers that MS put up awhile back, yeah, if you don't have a great PC, playback will be awful because they encoded them at a really high bitrate to try to minimize compression artifacts.

Hey! I will come to your house and hurt you if you EVER part ways with the SNES, Genesis, or Dreamcast! You hear me? :p

If you want good money, and your old systems are in good shape, you'd do much better via the auction sites vs. trade in. You will get SQUAT for old systems on trade in. DON'T DO IT! That Lynx is a collector's item outright.

PS2, Xbox, something more current you can trade in and probably do ok and take a dent out of the pain. ;)

It's pretty sad. The employees will rightfully trash talk it and usually THEY will beg you not to do it. LOL...

Yeah, Ebay and such.

LOL. You sit on that and start maybe checking out what it's value is. You may be pleasantly surprised. As is, I have to save up for November! :)

Nope.
That's roughly a $176 trade.
