10 Dollers cost saving, and such a big fuzz. Or a 0 Dollar clever programming of completly shutting of this f... home Screen.
Yes, they should just bring an update to disable that Home Screen in Game Mode.
Did anybody watch the Panasonic CES 2013 Show. I recommend seriously watching it, because than you will understand what a Company Panasonic is. Most of the Show they talk about home Screen, drawing Pictures and Shopping on your TV!! Just watch it!
Ok, and regarding Input Lag. On my YouTube channel i published some ST30 vs. ST60 comparison Videos, so you can see how a 35ms vs. 75ms Plasma or LCD compares. Because all of those: How does my tv compare to the ST60, questions are uselss. Check the Video: What you see is a difference from 30 to 40 MS = S60 vs. ST60.
Because I also do Retro gaming, and I have some Sony Trinitron CRT, and Amiga RGB Monitors, I hooked up my PS3 with RGB Scart to my 2000 Sony Trinitron Model and made a comparison Video.
I was shocked how fast Shooting was on the Trinitron, but when you do moving, it feels quite the same. Maybe the CRT is very fast with Little Change of the Picture but I really dont know. Check it out for your self.
Just Off Topic: I really could see that the CRT has no Chance in black Levels vs. the Plasma, but as I was gaming on the Little Screen, the colours and the look was great. When you start Killzone 3 there are some red graphics above the black, on the crt you could see them all. Even I could not film it properly.
That is what I love on Plasma, it has that natural CRT like Look. No LCD can provide that.
