    Atrix pricing released by AT&T.... Someone's trying to make $$$

    The full press release (Engadget cut part of it) implies that you need to shell out for tethering even if you use Firefox on the multimedia dock. It's completely ludicrous, and took the Atrix 4G from being at the top of my list to somewhere in the middle.

    ps3 wireless

    In theory, wireless access points should be able to handle up to 255 devices, so the number of laptops hanging on there shouldn't be a problem. This sounds like some sort of DHCP lease problem, judging from the fact that a reset on the router fixes it. Is it possible to run an ethernet cable to...

    Any chance that the PS3 will have 1680 x 1050 support?

    Sure. Keeps aspect ratio, doesn't introduce artifacts. You must be one of those guys that hits the stretch setting on his TV for 4:3 material.

    Any chance that the PS3 will have 1680 x 1050 support?

    I don't know, nor do I care. People are "satisfied" with any number of horrific image quality settings on their TV, too. That does not change that what they're viewing is full of artifacts or has horrific colors. But thanks for at least admitting you were wrong about all upscaling being equal...

    Any chance that the PS3 will have 1680 x 1050 support?

    Just look at any review of a cheap upscaling DVD player to something like an Oppo. This isn't rocket science.

    Any chance that the PS3 will have 1680 x 1050 support?

    You seem to be completely unaware that a cheap scaler will cause a loss of image quality. There are indeed cheap and easy methods to get to 1080p - but the output doesn't look all that good.

    Any chance that the PS3 will have 1680 x 1050 support?

    Your $600 1080p TV has a really trashy scaler in it. Try again.

    How do i move games to the hdd on 360?

    Notably, you still need the disc in the drive to play the game, even installed to the hard drive.

    Any chance that the PS3 will have 1680 x 1050 support?

    The scaler in the 360 is a separate chip, not in the GPU. Sony was already having cost issues with its console when it was released... adding another chip could have been a serious financial issue. Microsoft made a serious mistake by not including 7.1 sound in the 360... Sony's grand hardware...

    Any chance that the PS3 will have 1680 x 1050 support?

    Bad news: it doesn't have a hardware scaler. Your games will output at 720p/1080i if the developer didn't add 1080p support to the game (either natively or through software scaling). Scaling _down_ is pretty easy in software. It's adding new pixels (scaling up) that's tricky. That said...

    PS3 headset

    Any BT headset should work. That said, the Sony one is pretty excellent, and has some PS3 specific features.

    Wii - Splitting the audio and video

    It sounds like your problem is more like "the audio or video wires don't go far enough apart". The easiest way to fix that is to go to Monoprice.com and buy the appropriate number of female-to-female RCA connectors and male-to-male RCA cables to extend out to where you need to go (or...

    PS3 Slim w/ Card Reader Add On?

    I've heard that USB memory card readers will work, but I've never tried it.

    Enhanced God of War Blu-ray announced

    I bought it. Never played GoW before. Aside from some dumb puzzle segments, it's pretty damn good.

    What would you want in PSP2?

    The OP pretty much nails it, with a few exceptions. The hard drive isn't going to happen - too error prone, too expensive over the long term, and it eats battery too fast. I'd expect a 16gb or 32gb internal flash drive with a memstick slot. The same basically applies to an optical drive - it...
