Farewell Analog TV, Make Way for the DTV Generation

Farewell Analog TV, Make Way for the DTV Generation 100°
299w ago - According to Yahoo news, TV stations began cutting their analog signals this morning, but many have opted to wait until the evening.

That being said, if you still own an analog TV set and wish to continue using it be sure to drop by www.DTV2009.gov to get a coupon for the now-required converter box.

There are also DTV FAQs available HERE and HERE for those interested.

The only part I dislike about going digital is that portable TVs (such as the Sony Watchman) are now a thing of the past.

To quote: Research firm SmithGeiger LLC said Thursday that about 2.2 million households were still unprepared around the beginning of June. Sponsored by the National Association of Broadcasters, it surveyed 948 households that relied on antennas and found that 1 in 8 had not connected a digital TV or digital converter box.

"We know some viewers will wait until the very last minute, or even after June 12, until they take action," said Paul Karpowicz, second vice chair of the television board of the NAB.

Stations will start cutting their analog signals Friday morning,...
 

Review: Argon 2 Fourth Generation Chip for the Nintendo Wii

Review: Argon 2 Fourth Generation Chip for the Nintendo Wii 50°
317w ago - Recently Team InFeCtuS has launched their new 4th Generation Mod-chip for the Nintendo Wii console.

The Argon 2 is both updatable via Internet and solderless, and also capable of running Wii homebrew software available at www.ArgonChannel.com.

Today we review the Argon 2 drive enhancement chip for the Wii.

I will start with my first impression of the chip itself. In size it is just a fraction larger that the infectus chip, which is not bad at all considering it has an integrated official wiiclip built in.

A quick video of it in action:




Please note: (many others need you to solder one on if you plan to use one with their chip, thus adding to the size of the chip needing it, then you have the added hasle of figuring out which one you need, and once you do solder it on... wait didn't you want a wiiclip because you're not so handy at soldering?)

So for the average user this chip is DIY, and plug-n-play via wiiclip. The PCB hardware itself is solid, and it is easy to see that it is of high quality. That being said, let's get down to actually putting the chip to use.

Upon first installing it my first test was with a dvd-rw,...
 

Harrison: New Generation Will Never Buy Physical Media

Harrison: New Generation Will Never Buy Physical Media 100°
326w ago - Atari president Phil Harrison has revealed that there is a generation of kids being born today that will most likely never buy a physical media product. Therefore, they will not buy a DVD, CD, and never buy a game in a box.

To quote: Phil Harrison is convinced that the game industry's future audience will not be reliant on physical forms of media.

Speaking to Edge, the Atari company president said that "there's a generation of kids being born today and probably already alive who I'm pretty confident will never buy a physical media product. They will never buy a DVD, they will never buy a CD, and they will never buy a game in a box."

Harrison and Atari CEO David Gardner are already gearing the company towards this perceived trend. Back in September Gardner explained that the future of Atari lies in online play and distribution, with the former EA executive declaring that "within five years 90 per cent of our products will be online."
 

The Top 5 Game Developers of This Generation

The Top 5 Game Developers of This Generation 250°
331w ago - By now, the term 'Next-gen' has transformed itself into 'Current-gen' in the minds of videogame enthusiasts. Gamers all across the world have seen what the consoles are capable of, played the cream of the crop, bickered about which version has more Trees, etc.

While there have been a few flops this Gen (Yes, we're looking at YOU Too Human & Lair) there have certainly been plenty of hits. With excellent software having been released for all 3 platforms, we turn our attention to the teams behind the software.

#5- Nintendo EAD (Mario Galaxy, Wii Sports, LOZ: Twilight Princess)

Nintendo's dramatic shift into casual gaming caused a lot of anger and complaints: "Why all the casual games?!?", "Do they even care about core gamers?!! "What The heck is WiiFit?", all these were questions thrown at the Japanese video game juggernaut.

While it's clear the 'Old Nintendo' is long gone, the 'new' Nintendo still has the most valuable feature of the departed: The ability to produce kick-butt games. Mario Galaxy is a shining example of what Nintendo EAD has brought to the table this gen; Innovative gameplay that is pure fun to play through.

Though Nintendo EAD's Online efforts are virtually non-existent, their continued efforts in producing great offline games have been met with...
