It’s been a while since I bought a VGA cable so that I could play my Wii on a PC monitor. But now that I’ve bought myself a PS3, that cable wasn’t going to work so I decided to go for an HD capture card – AverTV CaptureHD H727.
This is about double the price of a dedicated converter and it also means you’ll need to keep the PC turned on when playing but, as it allows you to watch digital TV, listen to radio and capture from any video device including the latest HDMI with this card it should prove to be better value in the long run.
The PS3 doesn’t have many good exclusive games (at least for me), yet here’s what they decide to do with it…
From June 6th 2009, PS3 owners will be able to subscribe to “Misato Katsuragi’s Information Plan” for 800 Yen (US$8) per month which will have Misato reading news from the internet via the “NERV News 24 Channel” covering everything from Anime, politics to sports. News can also be heard via the PSP using remote play once this is purchased.
The backstage can be customised as well as Misato’s clothing and hairstyle. Backstages available include NERV HQ, the dining room from Misato’s apartment and the classroom from Shinji’s school.
Gainax is ready to do anything to squeeze money out of their Eva franchise.
Looks like SE wasn’t satisfied just calling the bonus item set that come with their upcoming FFVII Advent Children Complete movie, “First Press” editions. The official name is now “Trial Version Set” according to Dengeki Online and the movie isn’t just HD… It’s “Beyond High Definition”! Good to see the company having great ambitions.
We also get to see what the Blu-Ray boxart of the movie and the 160GB “Cloud Black” PS3 looks like which seems to feature the “Cloudy Wolf” emblem. Kind of getting tired of seeing Cloud and Sephiroth being stuck on the front cover of nearly all the FFVII related merchandise to be honest.
Watch out for the sets in import stores on April 16th.
