HDMI vs. Component - What's The Difference?

50°
360w ago - Amid a global spectrum of high definition format battles, none is so misunderstood as the debate between HDMI and component video. Some videophiles expect HDMI to completely outpace the "vintage" analog format, while true experts in the field know there are distinct advantages and disadvantages to each format.

This article will give you a better idea of the technologies that make up these video formats, and prove that the differences are not as lopsided as you may think.

If you talk to any half-witted video enthusiast or ask an associate at your local big box retailer - bearing in mind that the two groups are pretty much the same - they'll unmistakably tell you that HDMI is better than component, case closed, end of story. This is just based on tired assumptions of the entire audio/visual industry. HDMI is based on a digital technology while component is analog, HDMI is a more recent development and HDMI costs more. Conventional wisdom says that newer formats are better, digital is always the best and a higher price tag equals higher quality.

Living under the guise of these kinds of stereotypes will eventually tear your brain to shreds. They're just not true. Component video cables can deliver really high quality pictures, just like HDMI. They also tend to be a bit more robust, especially if...

Sony's 40GB PS3 arrives in retail store stockrooms

100°
360w ago - Absolutely no surprises here folks, but we've managed to attain a few photos of the box of the new 40GB PlayStation 3 due to officially launch on November 2nd.

These shots come from the storeroom of an unnamed major retail store so it's not like anyone's selling them just yet, unlike the botched launch of a certain other games console. Anyway, if you've been hankering to see "40GB" printed on a PS3 box, now's your chance.

First ever Condemned 2: Bloodshot gameplay footage!

50°
360w ago - It's easy to draw Manhunt and Condemned comparisons -- disturbingly-violent scenes, sneaking around in the dark, environment kills -- but after spending time with both games recently, we think we've found the line that separates the two.

In Manhunt 2, when you see characters running around in skull and pig masks, it's kinky. In Condemned 2, it's Halloween. Video below:

We stopped by Sega's offices earlier this week to get a look at Condemned 2's third mission, which just so happens to take place during Halloween. And sure enough, in the mission players come across masked enemies fighting each other on train tracks in what Sega calls a "riot." We're not sure if that's the best word to use, since the screen isn't exactly filled with enemies, but it's an impressive scene that comes as close as we've seen in a game to a real fist fight.

When you come across these enemies attacking each other, they'll turn and start to pursue you, but at all times they remain aware of everyone in the room. So if an enemy takes a wide swing at you and there happens to be another enemy within breathing room of his elbow, that guy will get taken out as well. With the sound effects and enemy animations where they are at this point in development, even a simple scene like...
 

Disney Helping Promote PS3 and Blu-ray

50°
360w ago - In the latest Disney commercials for newly released Disney Blu-ray movies and games Disney is giving the PS3 some added promotion stating that the product "Plays on Blu-ray players and PlayStation 3."

This is great news for Sony and it appears that Disney and Sony have some sort of partnership which has made this type of advertisement a reality.

Apparetly Disney wants to push the Blu-ray format and has chosen it as their format of choice to release all of their key titles on such as the newly released Meet the Robinsons which we reviewed here right on PCN earlier in the week

It is very smart for Disney to take this approach because if they push the PS3 and it sells more units, that will mean that more people will have Blu-ray players and likely buy more copies of their films in the future
