I am looking at two TVs:

Pioneer KURO PDP-6010FD 60" 1080p Plasma HDTV

Pioneer PDP-6070HD 60" PureVision Plasma HDTV

The second one is 1375 x 785 and I would like to know the perceivable difference in picture quality between the two. Thanks.

If you are watching Blu-Ray or HD-DVD, then, maybe then, you will see a better picture on the 1080p.
If you're watching regular cable or satellite HD channels, you won't notice a difference.
Until 1080p sources are more common, you can save some money.
Google search interlaced, progressive, frames per second, for more info.

Is there really that big of a difference between hdtv and regular tv?


I was planning on getting a big plasma or hdtv but I just don't see if its worth all of that money.

olderbutwiser hit it on the head......


if it was just a marketing gimmic.......
us Techies.....high end users
would NOT waste the money on it

it's not a $5,000 Chia Pet or pet rock here....

not that it proves the point but 5X the bandwitdh....gotta be more quality there....

I only own a regular Xbox, and am planning to buy a new console.

My question is this: Am I too late in buying gaming console? Should I wait until something else comes out? WILL something come out in the near future?
Anyone have any information or opinions?

Nobody knows what the next generation will look like or when it will be released. Anyone who says they know is a big fat LIAR cause they haven't even been designed.

In fact, the technology doesn't even exist yet to make them. Look at the number of cores in xbox360 and ps3: 3 and 8. Each on a 3.2ghz clock cycle. The last couple years have seen the death of Moore's law, which predicted the number of transistors on an IC would double every 18 months. They can't do it anymore because there's a heat barrier, so they had to resort to making multiple cores and pretending it was one "chip." It is hard to make software for and generates even more total heat than it would if they had just stuck with single core without making it any faster. But they can't do that, because the industry expects Moore-compliant products.

Look at any pc on the market today, are there any cpu's clocked faster than 4 ghz yet? No, and they don't even sell them that fast, you have to overclock them. Every new pc is at least a dual nowadays, up to 4 and it looks like they'll be going 8 soon. About to finally catch up with the ps3 except their multithreading still isn't as advanced as the Cell's is, or as good for running 3d game engines either.

So what will they make a ps4 out of? A new Cell with 16 cores? Don't bet on developers lining up to make games for that. It would also overheat like crazy. Circuit width tech is down to 45nm now, but it took three years, since the original ps3's on 90nm. That's not a very fast increase, it would never make a 16-core console realistic. Likewise if Microsoft wanted to take xbox to the next level they'd have to release some kind of 8-core goliath, it would make the red ring of death look like an ice cream social at the south pole. The tech is not there; there is no design. Not even a concept.

Now, the Wii can and probably will upgrade, but that's not gonna make it the first of the next generation. It will make it the last of the current generation, just as Wii is the last of the last generation. The only next gen part of Wii is the controller, and that is an accessory. The console is a 700mhz single-core putz. It is no more powerful than your original xbox. It can't output HD, it has no web browser, it is limited in a zillion ways. If they redesign it to have a dual-core at the standard 2 to 3ghz, then it will outperform the old wii by leaps and bounds. But it will only be a current-gen console. I don't expect them to upgrade the cpu though, only the graphics chip to make it HD capable. Because Nintendo has long feared the US digital transition when suddenly zillions of people will have new HDTV's and realize standard def really kind of sucks.

The console that will last the longest is the ps3, because it has the most advanced cpu and also the best gpu of the bunch. (400gflops compared to 240gflops for xbox's gpu). They're wasting their time on motion sensing right now, which the ps3 has done since it was released and also with the playstation eye, and xbox knows it can't make a better console yet either so it's trying to get your grandmother to play too. Motion sensing control is a joke.

There will not be any real current gen consoles released before the year 2013. Only portables.

Does it still worth to buy a PS3 FAT?


Lets face it. Its 2013. Still I would like to ask: should I invest? Im planning on buying a cheap first gen PS3, I would renovate it by cleaning it and changing thermal paste, adding a new, large hard drive. I am also planning on buying a cheap HDTV to use with it. I want to buy it becouse I want to play some games that are only available on the PS platform, but also any games I can get my hands on. But the big question: should I invest in buying a first gen PS3 that probably was made in 2006 or 2007? Also is there a noticeable difference between the SLIM and the FAT versions? I need advice, please help.
Please note that I dont want to wait for the PS4 becouse I dont have the money for that thing....

If you don't plan on getting a ps4 right away then ya get a ps3, but you should get a slim as they're more reliable.

why does a 1920x1080 (1080p) wallpaper look bad on a 3D HDTV used as a monitor?

high quality hdtv wallpapers
 on ... orihime inoue girl high quality hdtv HD Wallpaper of Anime & Manga
high quality hdtv wallpapers image


Ok asked this question a few days agou and got a good answer but read bottom for my new question:

I have done some research and from what i can see a 1080p still frame is about two megapixels in quality. After researching spatial resolution my understanding is that for 1920x1080 to be displayed accurately it would have to be displayed on a 19" x 10" screen? So does that mean my wallpaper looks lame because its having to stretch it to over double the size on a 47" HD screen? now i have tried to use a 3840x2160 wallpaper but it didn't fit the screen. So i resized it in photoshop (but wouldn't this knock the resolution down (i mean quality)? As you can see i'm confused and not very aware of what i'm talking short i guess my question is.... How do i get a wallpaper to look good on a large (47") 3D HDTV being used as a monitor for a computer?

extra info:

I do have a hdtv card that I use to watch tv (looks great from a distance!) when using tv as a monitor viewing distance is about a 70-100cm

New Question:

If I was to take a larger image i.e. 3840x2160 and open it in photoshop, then create a new 1080p size image and increase the dpi to say 200 and then free transform the large image to fit the 1920x1080 canvas would that make an image look sharper by cramming more dpi into a smaller canvas? or am i completely off there?

1920x1080 as in pixels , inches unknown, due to resolution unknown

(1080p) HDTV progressive scan, not / (1080i) interlaced

so set the monitor aspect aside, and look at image quality itself,
the inches or centimeters, the resolution ppi/dpi, and effectively pixel count,

open you original image in photoshop, view image size details,

1920x1080 at 72 ppi is 26.6 x 15 inches,
1920x1080 at 300 ppi is 6.4 x 3.6 inches,
yet > 26.6 x 15 inches at 300 ppi is 8000 x 4500 pixels

quality print size for resolution is 300 ppi/ dpi,
but that from photo being large 30 x 20 inches at 72ppi , as example
is resized down to photo 5x7" at the 300 dpi,
not the monitor screen size of 47" or ~ (40.96 by 23.04 inches)

if for 41 by 23 inch guesstimate size, at 72 ppi resolution,
you want 2949 by 1656 pixel which is around 6.2 mega pixel image from camera,
still suggest 7 mp 3128 x 2346 *or higher , then size down or resample,

you do not or can not take smaller 1920x1080, the double or resize, as its quality/ sharpness/ blur focus is only enhanced, not the detailing,

you can take larger image greater than 6.2 megapixel, and bring down to 16:9 [2949 by 1656] ratio,
the higher the original mp, or quality, the better for viewing and refitting to wallpaper,
other issue could be large size and high resolution, then would require more memory to store data in file, where 1 megabyte file could increase by colour and depth,


47" LG , M4712C / example

16:9 aspect ratio

PS3 vs Xbox 360?


I am thinking of buying one of them but i dont know which one to get. I am used to the plastation paddles. I know Xbox has Halo which is a plus for that. But I also want to use it as a computor in my bedroom. So which ever one is better at online. Just give me your reasons why you like one of them.

i would go for the ps3 for these reasons: It has a great built in web browser. also has built in wifi so u wouldn't need to connect it directly to an Ethernet cable is you have a wireless router.
The PSN (playstation Network) is free to all playstation owners, and is great for online play. also the psn has the playstation store which is great for downloading free demos, videos, trailers,wallpapers and themes and psn games which cost a little doe. also the ps3 has a built in blu ray player for playing the highest quality movies on the market. an 80 gig system makes for a great central entertainment piece, can store movies, music, pics and games. Wanna really get set up and get the full experience, then get an hdtv and 5.1 surround sound!
The xbox 360 has xbox live which costs 50-60bux a year. the 360 does not have a web browser yet but might be added in future updates. if you buy the elite system you will get built in wifi but if you don't you will have to pay and extra 100-120 bux for it. When it comes to games xbox does have halo, but you can only have so much fun with 1 game, ps3 has some great games and some great games on the horizon(metal gear solid 4, gran turismo 5, resistance 2, killzone 2....)
2008 is definitely gonna be a great year for ps3, tons of great games are coming out... and Home too, look it up.
i traded in my 360 for a ps3 near launch and i don't regret it. but the final decision is up to you of course. good luck, and if you get i ps3 add me, "proffesor_chaos"

Or should I wait till 2013 to buy one..?
P.s. I don't care about Internet and other fancy stuff

3D technology has not been a big hit in the electronic industry. At this time there are only around 130 titles available in 3D blu ray disc movies and they are mainly animated movies from disney. Keep in mind that to watch in 3D you will need the following: 3D HDTV, 3D blu ray disc player ot a game console, 3D blu ray disc movie or 3D video game and 3D glasses. You also have to sit in front of the tv to get the 3D effect. Go online to Home Theater Magazine and read the reviews on 3D HDTV, along with the pro and con of each technology. Panasonic Plasma is the only Plasma tv they recommend. They also have more pllasma tv being recommended than any type of tv from other manufacturer. Hope this will help you out.

Which is the best 32 inch led tv in india 2013?


Hi guyzz!!

i am planning to buy a 32 inch led tv for my new home.
My priorities are :
full hd led tv (1920x1080p)
Decent motion clarity index
sharp and good quality pictures ofcourse.....
smart tv (optional)
stylish with a slim frame

went to a local store he inclined me towards lg32ls series i.e lg 32ls4600 and 32ls5700
Panasonic TH-L32E5D0
sony bravia 32 ex550

i personally like lg 32ls5700
which one should i consider.....
any other options.....

any help will be appreciated :)

Hi christina, LG WRman Sherlock here,

First of all, my recommendation would be too mention your budget range to get the best opinions possible. Now looking at the factors you have listed, the 32LS5700 would be a good choice.

However, if you have a flexible budget then I would suggest you to look at the 32LM6200 as well. The TV is a full HD LED TV with theater-like passive 3D and easy to use Smart TV functions. It has a Motion Clarity index of 400 which will be perfect for fast moving visuals. And the sleek design with the ribbon stand is definitely the cherry on top. Check this link for detailed information for this TV.

LG WRman Sherlock out!

How good is the quality on a 32" Hannspree SV32LMNB LED 1080p TV?

best quality 46 hdtv image


I know it is 1080p, but is the quality actually good for blu rays or hd gaming?

I'm both an avid TV watcher and a HD videographer, and as such, I wouldn't pay for a 1080p 32" HDTV unless you're using it within about 3 feet.

The human eye cannot see the difference between 1080p and 720p at normal viewing distance in a 32" TV. 1080p was designed to have 720p quality at sizes over 46". I have a more trained eye than most people and I struggle to tell the distance in TVs smaller than 40".

What kind of HDTV is better: Plasma, LCD , LED, etc.?


I want to buy an 40" - 46" HDTV (1080p) for my home to replace my 10 year old 40 " CRT TV. I've seen different types out there: Plasma, LED. LCD. What's the difference and which is considered best (quality-wise). Any references to links that explain the different types of TVs on the market now. I'm just now able to afford getting into 21st century technology and would like some help.

Confused about what type of TV to buy? LED LCD Plasma.. How to choose?

After all, there are so many acronyms and buzzwords to wrap your head around, such as 1080p, 120/240Hz, 24p, HDMI and LED backlighting. Huh?

Along with deciding how big a screen you want (which is usually tied to the size of your budget and the dimensions of your room), the next choice should be between LCD.LCD (LED Backlit) or Plasma â and all have their merits. Here, we'll describe each of these formats, and also point out their shortcomings.


What is it?
lcd tv 120mhzSimilar to your laptop computer's monitor, flat-panel LCD televisions use a liquid crystal display to produce a sharp and bright picture; these crystals are sandwiched between two panes of polarized glass, which are stimulated by an electric current and illuminated by fluorescent tubes housed behind the glass. Some newer LCD TVs, however, use LED-backlighting instead. LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, translate to a better-looking picture (see photo).

There are a number of advantages to buying a LCD televisions. For one, with more than three-quarters of all televisions embracing this technology, there is a lot of choice when it comes to manufacturers, models and sizes (13- to 103-inches, in fact). Competition, of course, breeds more aggressive pricing, too, which is good news for the consumer.

Flat-panel LCD televisions are also very thin, light and energy efficient, and are ideal for rooms with plenty of ambient light, which, for example, comes through large windows as they tend to absorb rather than reflect light (reflected light can obscure your view of the screen).

Until recently, LCD TVs didn't handle fast motion images as well as plasma TVs, resulting in a somewhat blurred image. Newer LCD TVs, though, have added technologies such as 120Hz frame doubling (or 240Hz frame quadrupling) to smooth out motion. It's still not as good as plasma, but much better than before. Also, LCD TVs used to have problems showing dark blacks (because a light was still on behind the pixel showing black, resulting in a more greyish hue). Many LCD televisions today use local-dimming with LED-backlighting (see next section) for improved contrast ratios (whiter whites and blacker blacks) - but, keep in mind, this is not an issue associated with plasma TVs.

LCD (LED Backlit)

What is it? Not a Different Type of TV

led lcd tv backlighting backlitItâs tempting to think LEDs belong in a completely separate category beside LCD and plasma TVs, but in reality, an LED television is just a type of LCD TV. The proper term would really be "LED-backlit LCD TV," but that always seems to get truncated to "LED TV" in everyday conversation, perpetuating the confusion.

To understand how LEDs function in an LCD TV, think of an actual liquid-crystal panel as the plastic pegs in a Lite Brite. They hold a translucent image, but without a powerful backlight to punch through and light it up like a signboard, youâre not going to see much. On your old Lite Bright, an inefficient incandescent light did the job, but pretty unevenly. On a typical LCD TV, fluorescent lights provide the backlighting through a special plastic sheet called a light guide that distributes light from a fluorescent tube evenly over the surface of the TV. On an LED-backlit TV, fluorescent tubes are replaced with light-emitting diodes â LEDs â the same technology that probably lights up your digital watch, the buttons on your monitor, and the indicators on your stereo. They can be either situated along the edges of the TV like a fluorescent tube, or arranged directly behind the screen in a grid. But what difference does it make, and why would anyone spend so much money on it?

The Benefit of LEDs

The most obvious reason LEDs have fallen into favor in LCD TVs: theyâre simply more efficient. Although fluorescent lights do a decent job converting electricity to light in the big scale of things, LEDs perform even better. Typically, manufacturers claim an efficiency improvement of up to 30 percent over fluorescent-based sets, which can add up significantly over the lifetime of a TV, especially on larger screens that use more juice to begin with.

LEDs are also much smaller than tubes, even after accounting for the number of them needed to light an entire TV. That means LED-backlit televisions can be manufactured significantly thinner than their tube cousins. For instance, most of the ultra-thin televisions that measured under an inch thick at CES used LED backlights, because they add very little depth to the profile. Though commercial variants arenât quite as dramatically thin as these prototypes, theyâre significantly skinnier than their fluorescent-backlit counterparts, making them some of the most chic and living-room-friendly HDTVs out there.

For home theater enthusiasts, LEDs only matter for one reason: image quality. Because fluorescent tubes mu

Can I downgrade from a 32 inch tv to a 24 inch?

My 32 inch LCD Emerson hdtv broke, will it be that much of a downgrade to go to a 24 inch LED Vizio TV. Basically I am looking at either a 24 inch vizio or a 32 inch LED element tv. I have never heard of element and saw mixed reviews, but it is made in America, which I like. Will an Element 32 inch led tv last, or will it break in two years like my Emerson did?

You're going down 12 inches so you will notice the difference. It has been my experience that you get what you pay for so if you buy an off brand TV be prepared for it to go out in a year. Basically they take advantage of the poor by making them pay more. Save an extra hundred and buy a 32 or 40" name brand HD tv. I bought mine from Walmart and saved about 150 dollars in black friday.

What is/are the best hdtv to buy for gaming?


I'm looking for a high quality tv for a really good price and anywhere from 26" to 32". I have an xbox if it matters.

Panasonic is the most frequent top choice for plasma sets in consumer reviews, and most gamers prefer plasma for the lack of fast-motion blur.

Unfortunately, plasmas don't come in small screens such as you suggest. At that size, you're limited to LCD or LCD/LED. To minimize fast-motion blur on one of those, check the specs for any TV that interests you. You want a refresh rate of 100 or 120 Hz (not 50-60), depending on where you are (North America, Europe, etc.) and you want the fastest possible response time: something under 5 milliseconds.

Is there a higher quality to either?

LED Tv? Is somebody making LED televisons?

There is LCD, and then there is DLP, which is a variation of LCD technology. DLP is brighter and perceptibly it seems a bit sharper. It's also more expensive. It's all a matter of what you can afford and how important that extra brightness is for you. I prefer DLP but I also do pay for that preference.

Questions about Panasonic GT50 THX Cinema picture mode?


I purchased a 50" GT50 HDTV a few days ago and I absolutely LOVE it! The picture is amazing. I was playing around with the picture modes though and i noticed one called "THX Cinema". How is this different from the regular "Cinema" mode? When i switch between them all that's obvious is that the picture looks a bit smaller but more complete (like it zooms out a tiny bit). Of course I'm completely ignorant to all this technical stuff so what do I know. Can anyone explain this to me? I the THX mode optimal for movies and such?

For a given manufacturerâs compliant display, THX [picture] modes are intended to provide a set of simple preset picture settings that conform to THXâs carefully chosen criteria for video image quality. Ideally the preset THX picture settings should provide the most natural or accurate video image quality short of a professional video display âcalibration.â In reality, for the more demanding perfectionist it is relatively easy to surpass the image quality performance offered by the preset THX picture modes on the 2012 Panasonic plasma display panels by using the Custom picture mode along with proper display calibration software and hardware.

In addition:

It is definitely something i wish I could afford...The only problem I see here is that the power supply might not be enough for both those video cards. The 680 needs at least 550w and the 640 needs at 350w so, you need a better power supply for it. Other than's a really good computer with tons of stuff.

Playstation 4 question ?


Does the ps4 have the av color wires? Or u need hdmi in order to use it?

It will only support HDMI now. Some recent games on the PS3 actually had visual problems because of people who were still using composite cables. DarkSiders 2 and Skyrim come to mind.

You'll need to get your hands on a HDTV and some cables. I recommend getting a T.V. no bigger than 32" and get your HDMI cable off of Amazon since they have cables available for as little as $2 (and all HDMi cables do the same thing, no matter the price).

Use this interactive model of the PS4, and look at the back. You'll see that there's only HDMI and nothing on other video output cables.

Well we are in the new era so why not digital projectors? I know there are digital ones but not very much ones out yet

It's merely taking time for the multiplexes to acquire and install digital projectors. The digital projectors in theaters aren't the little briefcase-sized ones used for company presentations or home theaters; they're large machines the size of refrigerators, many of them capable of projecting four times the number of pixels of HDTVs, and they cost tens of thousands of dollars each. They also require an upgrade to the screen; so the total cost of upgrading a single theater is about $70,000.

So to go from a standard that was used by EVERY theater for practically a century and completely convert over to a new one is a process that has been (and is going to) take a lot of time. Of the roughly 36,000 cinema screens in the U.S., about 16,000 have converted to digital as of 2010, with a plan to have 20,000 converted by 2013 as part of a billion-dollar project initiated in 2009.

Does it still worth to buy a PS3 FAT?


Lets face it. Its 2013. Still I would like to ask: should I invest? Im planning on buying a cheap first gen PS3, I would renovate it by cleaning it and changing thermal paste, adding a new, large hard drive. I am also planning on buying a cheap HDTV to use with it. I want to buy it becouse I want to play some games that are only available on the PS platform, but also any games I can get my hands on. But the big question: should I invest in buying a first gen PS3 that probably was made in 2006 or 2007? Also is there a noticeable difference between the SLIM and the FAT versions? I need advice, please help.
Please note that I dont want to wait for the PS4 becouse I dont have the money for that thing....

If you don't plan on getting a ps4 right away then ya get a ps3, but you should get a slim as they're more reliable.

Blu ray players and viewing distance?

best hdtv picture quality 2010

best hdtv picture quality 2010 image


I've read alot about proper viewing distances for viewing blu ray movies and HDTV. My viewing distance is way outside of the range. I have a 65" RP CRT which is 1080i, and my viewing distance is about 16 feet away. Is buying a blu ray a player a waste of my money or should I invest in a good upconvert dvd player instead.

Invest in a Blu-ray player as the quality is great. Even on my HDCP 20" 720p monitor the difference between DVD and Blu-ray is huge, you won't notice the bad quality that DVD has until you watch a Blu-ray Disc movie, even the bad discs are good.

The interactivity is also good if you buy a bonus view player as Blu-ray Disc gives PiP, and Hi-def audio, and upscaled DVD isn't anything as good as Blu-ray Discs. Anyway a DVD upscaler can't upscale audio of interactivity.

However do you have a HDMI connection, because over component which is analouge the studios can freely downconvert the signal into DVD quality, due to the Image Constaint Token, or deny to play in the near future (Digital Only Token (DOT)). Some third parties say that they won't use it until 2010 to 2012, but it is not confirmed, and the studios can use it if they wish, anyway since the format war is over, it might be used. Check wheither you have HDMI, as far as I know not many CRT's have HDMI.

16 Feet away is a huge distance but, since you have a large screen it will look a lot better than DVD, but 10 Feet will be ideak for you.

Blu-ray is great, but make sure you have HDMI, as component isn't future proof. Also buy a PS3 as it's cheap and it can do Bonus View and BD LIVE where most players can't, be upgrade only PS3's and PC Drives can be upgraded.

But since you have a HUGE screen Blu-ray will be a good investment, even if you don't have HDMI (as only Warner hasn't really said wheither they will not use it, and 2010-2012 is a long time), and also if you don't have HDMI I don't think upconvert DVD players can upconvert with component, they might be able to with VGA, not sure though.

But....... if you don't won't to spend money on Blu-ray pickup a HD DVD player with HDMI, for a sweet upconverter, and you can take advantage of the clearance of over 300 HD DVD titiles like Harry Potter, Transformers , Poseidon , Shrek, Troy and much more, and build up a massive library in you home. It has to be noted that if you won't buy Blu-ray, HD DVD players are the BEST upconverters, and they are going dead cheap though to the format war, and it is always neglected that HD DVD players can upscale very well, but it will always be second rate compared with Blu-ray, or a native HD source.

In the end it depends with you, but if you are going for Blu-ray buy a PS3 with a HDMI connection, and check wheither you have HDMI, as you won't get upscaled DVD's without it most of the time. Still for the time being Blu-ray can do HD via analouge component up to 1080i (which you have), and VGA can do full HD ( no point for 1080i though).

So have a think about it, in the end it's about your budget, but since you have a large TV Blu-ray should be better than DVD even if it is upscaled, anyway you can't be sure that all DVD upscalers are good, although HD DVD players are good upscalers.

But on an upside Blu-ray has better picture quality, better audio (dependant on players decoders for audio) and more interactivity (dependant on Player Profiles).

How can I fix the picture of my N64 on my HDTV?

Lars xD

I know the console isn't made for HDTV's but I have the orginial av cable and correct colours on my tv so is there anyway to fix the really blurry screen maybe using a S-Video cable any help? It's just an upscaling problem as far as I'm but any help would be helpful

An S-Video cable will help. Also try setting the TV to 4:3. This is place lines on the left and right, and keep the image from stretching. (sample images below).

Mario 64 on an HDTV (stretched to 16:9)

Mario 64 in 4:3 (normal):

A HDTV TV set to 4:3 (pillar box)

Ultimately the N64 is a VCR. Designed for the days of interlaced TV's (480i). Consoles from 1999 on (Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube) were more like DVD players, designed for modern progressive TV's (480p).

Just like a VCR, it will WORK on a HDTV, but the picture quality won't compare to a DVD player, because it wasn't intended to be shown on a progressive screen.

is walmart having an in store after christmas sale this year?

i want to buy a video gams for a low price

The Walmart After Christmas sale in 2012 will begin as an online only sale on Christmas Day. Then, you will be able to Shop the Day After Christmas Sale at Walmart. Most sites and stores do not have sales that actually start on Christmas Day. Walmart is one of the few stores that has a robust sale that starts so early. A lot of websites really start pushing their deals hard on the Day After Christmas.

There will be a ton of great deals on electronics, toys, clothing, home items, even Christmas Decorations on sale starting Christmas Day and on Tuesday. The Walmart After Christmas 2012 sale will continue on throughout the week more than likely ending during the weekend before Walmarts New Years sales begin. The reason for all the great deals is that itâs the end of the year and Walmart needs to get rid of a lot of their inventory to make room for 2013 sales items. Thatâs why you end up seeing such large price cuts on high ticket items, like electronics. Look for the price cut on iPhones and iPad 3s. Also, look for other deals on tablets and laptops, as well as some really good after Christmas 2012 deals on HDTVs.

Walmartâs prices are not only competitive, but in most cases they tend to be lower than any other stores, either online or offline. Unfortunately there are no Walmart After Christmas 2012 coupons anywhere. So donât bother looking, Walmart does not accept any online coupons. There will be Free Shipping offers though. You can find all the deals online at the Walmart After Christmas Sale.

Why is there no PAL or NTSC games on the PS3?


i mean the 360 and wii (i think the wiiU also) have pal and ntsc games but the PS3 doesnt, and when i asked about the differences between pal and ntsc they told me that it is all about graphic and nothing else (1 is american the other is european or something like that) and did the PS2 have pal and ntsc games?? (i dont quite remember DX)

and does the WiiU and will the 720 have pal and ntsc?

and thanks

Those answers are either wrong or incomplete......................

Simply because of individual companies policy.

Sony does not allow any regional restrictions on its consoles released after 2006. All publishers must release region free games, while modern consoles of Microsoft and Nintendo still do.

That means PS3, PSP, PS Vita games are all region free.
While for PS3 games they still provide either ( optional NTSC or PAL ) + at least one HD output.

That means if a user use the old type SDTV, he need to do TV matching to the game disc, or graphic problem may occur on certain discs.
If he uses HDTV with HDMI cabled, then no problem. The output uses 720i, 1080p ..etc

In short:
PAL / NTSC on PS3 games stands for output only
PAL / NTSC on WII and xbox , xbox 360 stands for compatibility only ( the connection between game disc and console )
And this compatibility are divided into 3 types ( NTSC-U/C, NTSC-J, PAL ) , NOT 2 types.

In conclusion.
For PS3 games, users need to do matching between game disc and TV if they have no HDTV.
For PS2, Wii, WII U, xbox and xbox 360 games, users need to do matching between game disc and console.
Note: xbox 360 games are a lot different, Microsoft let publishers to decide whether to have to region locked or not, and most of them made disc region free.
Hence, there are lot of xbox 360 games are region free indeed, and do not have this restrictions

People there always got confused with output =/= compatibility, and thought they are same thing.....

xbox 720 compatibility is not yet announced by this date 21 Feb 2013, but its expected to be region locked which is a bad sign. We do hope they still let publishers to decide it like those xbox 360 ones did.
