Good games will be good games and crappy games will be crappy games, and HD/lack of HD will not turn a good game into a crappy game or vice versa.

zsidane - correct. Do you know how easy it is to hook your PS3 up to your TV? 1 wire. 1. You dont have to screw it like coax. So it is the easiest TV hookup ever. Dont bash PS3, HDMI, or HDTV because people cant hook it up right. If you cant plug... ONE wire... into the device, and the back of your TV. you do not NEED a TV. You do not NEED light switches, you do not NEED power, because you would NOT be able to plug in a power plug in the wall. You should be living under a cedar tree in the forest trying to 'plug' your wooden spear, into a squirrel, so you can plug a stick in a log, and spin it fast to start a fire to cook the not so HappySquirrel you plugged the stick into. Ok. Enough of plugging parody. Sorry HappySquirrel, that was just too amusing for me. The idea slipped into my head when I was thinking of a adjective to put with squirrel... :P

It's simply not that easy ...

Most people who have bought their HDTVs before the summer of 2006 do not have HDMI connections. When you look at the back of these TVs you will see a a massive number of connections; coaxial, RCA, S-Video, DVI, VGA and component (and typically multiples of each of these inputs). I honestly don't blame people for being confused by all of the options, getting frustrated and sticking with what they know (RCA).



so HD is bad because people are retards that cant plug in a cable or two.... wow.

 no wonder people can make a living by seting up TVs for others.

 Its also funny as hell to think people are such morons that they will spend a few grand on a tv yet do no research about it.  

 either way they but it in a store, and the sales people will always push accesories like hdmi or Component cables on them.

Yeah, obviously people can play games like zelda, and metroid prime, but they cant plug a SINGLE wire from their console into the TV. *doh*

1... uhh... 4... 2... 7... 10!!! I counted 10!

EDIT: This is me laughing at how stupid americans are. I live in america. I see it first hand every day.

 And I'm sure I talked about using the right wires and not how those wires should be plugged...

And since you're talking about the PS3, is the HDMI wire in the box ?

 Are you putting words in my mouth? I never said HD was bad at all! 

I said the General Masses probably don't have the techno savvy to set up an HD system with all those systems... EVEN IF THEY HAD THE HDMI CABLES!

 You're creating counter arguments in your head and responding to them, regardless of what I'm saying! 

There will be some people with SDTV's will still get PS3s and Xbox360s, and there will be people HDTV's that will get Wiis. Its not an exclusive thing where its one way or the other.

just how dumb are the people, My brothers 7 year old can set up my PS3 and TV... with out any help.

so thats why my tv came with 3 foot wide instrustions..... so no worries, these things have been idiot proofed.



Would your mom be able to figure it out?

People who aren't around technology, i.e. computers and TV's and stuff won't be able to be as savvy as those who are around technology all the time, i.e. gamers.

 

That doesn't mean they're dumb.

 

I can recompile my linux kernel in about 20-30 minutes, but that doesn't mean the general populus is dumb because they don't know what recompiling means, (or what linux is, or even what a kernel is). I'm just around computers so it seems easy for me!

Oh no!  Here come the 'your mom' comments.

Hopefully at the end of the day, we can all agree that most of the points in this thread have some validity and that we're just going to have to agree to disagree.

Numbers are like people. Torture them enough and you can get them to say anything you want.

Your right. People cant hook up TVs. But it's easier to hook up a PS3 than it is a Wii.

Why? Plug wire into PS3/Wii.

For the Wii, you now plug 3 color coded wires... into the proper plugs.

For the PS3, Plug... the... one plug... into the only thing on the TV that will take it.

 

THe Wii would have the biggest problems with this, becuase it is aimed at NON-gamers. 90 year old grandmas, 5 year old children, and their incopetent mothers.

The PS3 is aimed at technology savvy people.

(I can build a entire computer from being in packaging to running a game in about 8 hours)
(when I say packaging I mean each part. I build mine)
