Second, You think you can use old ps2 accessories like the action replay memory card crusher to transfer old ps2 stuff to the ps3. If the program can access the USB drive with the memory card saves is the question I guess since then after that is just moving the saves to the virtual ps2 memory cards. I guess the adapter is only 15 bucks but still. I guess if friends come over and wanted to play some ps2 or ps1 games, if thats likely, they can use the adapter.
Third, ISOHaven, that example is totally wrong for many reasons. For one, who has a florescent light back there and keeps it on. There is a reason why manuals for computer and electronic equipment talk about keeping their electronics from high noise sources like that. Two, at least in my last post I stated the signal must be within the threshold, no one said the signal can't degrade, which fluorescents totally floods the signal with noise beyond the thresholds. Three, what sort of shielding does that ethernet cable have? Even my cheap hdmi has double shielding with Ferrite Cores which ethernet cables usually don't unless added by the installer or user. There's more but I'll just to the final reason that can't be disputed is if IEEE number on the cable, UL number, and yes, even the manufacturer's SKU is the same as on the cheap $6-8 cable as it is on the $40+ cables, they are the same. One thing I never said before is that you should make sure it is has the HDMI certification for the resolution you are wanting it to run at or risk having signal problems. As I said before you cant think about digital cabling the same way as analog cabling.
Oh and also I did read about someone trying out the Bluray movie player on the ps3 and they said Talladega Nights loaded up in a few seconds and menu responds is of a standard dvd standalone player. They also said you can ff up to 120x to watch an entire movie in a minute .
First of all, yeah I really hope I get a unit. I preordered and all but just 10 or 11th on the list at the local gamestop.
