Not that strange. It's likely a non-recent CRT, very few of which could do proper 720p. However, many of the recent ones do convert a 720p signal to 1080i, though not all. I'm not an expert, but if you have a TV that doesn't convert the signal, you may have to settle for the lower 480p resolution.

That's a bug? I thought it was intentional, since it only really happens when you nail a Dramatic KO and lasts only through that fight.

Anyways, LIVE support should be the clincher for the Xbox version.

Previously registered games do count towards the offer as long as you've not yet used them for a previous offer (i.e. the Zelda disk). However, those of you anxious to get this because you're anticipating the game might do well to just wait the couple of months left for its release. The demo is very...

People, quadriplegics obviously have people who can help them change the cartridges and turn on the system, but watching those people play isn't going to be much fun for them is it? If this allows them to get some fun from games that aren't twitchy then it's a worthwhile product. No need for the tac...

BTW, if your Xbox is recent then you won't be able to boot an alternate BIOS from media. Basically that just means an additional hassle, but it's good to know. Note that you won't be able to use recent Xbox Live features either, because as mkjones already said you need to use dash version 4920 (the ...

Legal emulation: Did ConsoleClassix find the way?

Hey guys, I just stumbled upon ConsoleClassix.com , a site that reportedly offers legal Atari 2600, NES, Super NES, and Genesis emulation via a rather ingenious system. Their gimmick is that they allegedly actually own a set number of copies of each cartridge that they offer and backed them up thems...

Today's console FPS games all mimick the Halo scheme. Why? Because it is the best kind of control scheme for the genre, hands down. I actually didn't even use Goldeneye's default scheme either because it felt wrong after being accustomed to mouselook. I used "Solitaire" to give me a bit more contro...

Game Boy emulation may now be illegal!?!

OK all, check this link out. http://www.zodiacgamer.com/ A GBA emu was set to be released for the Tapwave Zodiac tomorrow, but it seems the creator received a message from Nintendo with this little tidbit in it: Nintendo has recently been granted U.S. Patent No. 6,672,963 (issued January 6, 2004) wh...

Seriously, this is wrong. Very wrong.

The original was one of the funniest and most entertaining adventure games of all t...

Screw the DS, at least this gives the Zodiac a chance at some market share. It's an exceptionally well designed device, already an excellent PDA and could be a great handheld console... if support for it ever arrives. Even if it doesn't, at least the homebrew scene looks promising.

That's because in other Metroids some items are hidden well off the main path and require certain well timed maneuvers to obtain. Not so in Prime. Still, this speed run is an amazing display of video game skill. Well worth the massive download if you're a fan of the game.

It seems like Samus and her adventures are becoming dumbed down. That's true of the 3D missions as well if Prime is any indication. But honestly, this is really a reflection of the modern gaming world. Most games are much easier to accomodate a predominantly unskilled mainstream audience. I miss th...

Yeah, the game is very good but far shorter than it should be. I was done with it in about eight hours, though in all fairness I didn't find all the animals or get all the pearls within. It is well worth $20 however, as it's got great graphics and sound, and a decent story to boot.

For a portable that only does games that seems a little overpriced. Sure it may be the equivalent of a hand-help PS2, but when you consider that the same amount would probably be enough for one of the next-generation consoles and probably a game or two for it, it really gives you pause.

Sorry for the pointless suggestion guys. I hadn't realized that fact. I was just surprised to see it ported to a console, but I now understand that it's due to the Xbox's PC-ish innards. A mod can feel free to lock this now. Thanks for your replies.

Hey all, I don't mean to beat a bloody dead horse, but the "unportable" ZSNES is being ported to the Xbox ! That's the first time I've heard of any attempted console port. Now, I know nothing about coding, but seeing as how SDL libraries are available for the DC (as is Linux), would that make the SD...
