hd, next-gen consoles, blu-ray and hd-dvd..

well.. time to reflect back on some current 'next-gen' devices/formats... seems 'next-gen' is the thing to be.. hehe..

me, well i'm forgoing the supposed 'next-gen' consoles by Microsoft and Sony. to me, graphical prettiness does not equate to next-gen.. its just a video upgrade, the gameplay remains the same and the interface too.... so that is why i will be trying to pre-order a Nintendo Wii....

Nintendo appears to be the only console maker that actually wants their system to be next-gen, in a true sense not a graphical upgrade sense.... and no, i am not a nintendo fanboy; hello, check out my PSP pages.. i am more of a Sony fanboy than any other... (got a Sony DSC-T9, K800i, PSP, W800i)...

hd.... i must say i already am in love with it.. sure, i only get 3 channels of HDTV Over-The-Air on my pc but nonetheless they are the football channels! hehe.. the only downfall now is that there does not seem to be any hope or sign that a HDTV CableCard ready Tuner will be released for PC's.. seems the cable companies are pushing their own PVR/DVR systems rather than allow us geeks to use our existing setups.. (by using a pc, i eliminate the need to purchase an HDTV but yet still get the resolution)
