No you don't, the Blu-Ray version is a special edition.
Mine is the 2 disk special edition HD DVD.
Uhm, wrong and wrong Wile E and the other guy. Granted, its showing in 720p on my tv. Its actually the Movies on Demand that are blu ray quality. Ill tell you this, Ive played Blu Ray Movies on both my 1080p Tv (Mitsubishi DLP in living room) and my 720p in my bedroom (Vizio LCD) and I can tell a difference between the two. Using TurboHD from Dish (its just what they called it, I dont know why) I cant tell a difference between the 1080p and my Dish network. So call me a liar or crazy but its the truth!
My neighbor has Dish on a 1080p LCD set. BD blows it away. Compare it on a direct view LCD or Plasma and say they are the same.
wareagle, im not calling you a liar but i need to see this for myself!
woot! just picked up transformers blu-ray special edition for 28 bucks!
well I dont think I have a directview lcd and I sure dont have a plasma However, if I do ever get one, and I post on here I got one, remind me to double check that. Currently, I cant really tell a difference at all.
what I can tell you is, this whole 1080p/720p stuff, while its nice, is also really pixellated and sometimes blurred. Modern TVs just cant get up there where we need them.
Well, DLP's are rear projection TV's. They really don't have the best picture quality. I would highly recommend a good LCD TV next time you go shopping for one.
Well, that may be in a few years, I do really love my DLP. I also think I Saw in BB or HHGregg about OLED DLPS?? or LED LCDS? Those look like they may be very nice.
I'm all about rear projection TV lol. I think it's the best bang for buck. The new DLP don't even have moving parts in them. But I still lean over at the LCD ones.
Those are the new ones with no moving parts inside of them.
Sweetness. I love my LCD more than my DLP, but DLP is such a damn nice steal. 1499 for a 65" 1080 DLP? that same LCD or plasma, 2799 to 3999 or more.
Bby just got this tv, its lcd with led back lighting, so it looks similar to plasma
Anyone know what sized flathead fits the torx screw to open the ps3? I bought a torx kit but theres a pin on the screw stopping them from fitting. I'll rather not buy a full screwdriver kit just to find the right size.
Drill a hole in the tip of the torx that fits.
Good idea thats genious! lol. I've gotten lazy for now, bah... I got like 2-3 hours sleep this morning lol.
Im going to change my fan and also I think I should put some mx-2 paste on the heatsink. Hopefully this fan does not emit a high pitched noise like the one in my system started to.
Thanks for the tip!
bah, I'd need like a drill press I think, hell I dont even have a vice lol.
What size torx is it Wile E? Im guessing T25? Im just going to measure it with a small screwdriver at the store.
so what cool games have you guys downloaded that are cheap. i really like "stardust HD", as frustrating as it gets towards the end. i heard "the last guy" is a lot of fun too. also, who here has a psp slim?
Did you try a drill/driver or even hell a dremel? That may work for you.but you would need a clamp of some sort.
Ive been wanting to try out one of the top dl'd games. Its a remake of an older game but with better graphics I forget what its called now though lol It costs like 5 or $10... Bionic Commando costs 9.99 looks pretty good.
I havent bought any games online though I just get them locally, recently got MGS4 for $40 and was about to pick up another copy and trade it for Skate and F1 but its quite a distance away and I dont feel like bothering anyone to drive me out there to get them... but a a friend said he would if he wasent busy tonight.

I used a big old drill lol, yeah I'd need a clamp. Im just going to buy a screwdriver or a couple tomorrow and hopefully they work/fit. I could try drilling the pin on the screw itself but I'll just wait until tomorrow.
Frys has a bit kit with everything you need. Hell they had a y bit that fit the DS
Good luck bro, I know its a pain to not have what you need to take care of business.
As for games, hell no, I aint downloaded anything. Im not big on paying for downloadable games.
Hell Im still at my original games I got when I first bought my ps3.
Question for you guys.
Im trying to setup the ps3 to wirelessly stream media to my tv,
I have found my dads pc running vista but wont find mine.
I have tried a wireless bridge and wireless off the ps3, non of them work.
Can anyone help me out?
yeah I stayed up all night, at 6am I turned on my ps3 and played some GT5 since I havent played it in a couple weeks. than I went to take it apart and I got stuck on the 1st screw lol
Ive had this spare fan sitting here for about 2 months lol
