Skyrim Hi-Rez Pack & Creation Kit

The Bethesda Blog announces the release of the promised Creation Kit for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, providing modification support for their RPG sequel. They also announce Steam now features a Skyrim High Resolution Texture Pack as free DLC, confirming indications that such a graphics upgrade was the "surprise" recently hinted at by Bethesda. Here's a tutorial video introducing the creation kit, and here's word:

Modders rejoice! We’re pleased to announce that the Skyrim Creation Kit is now available!

With the Creation Kit’s release, fans can now upload, download, and install custom content through the Skyrim Workshop on Steam. Get a crash course by reading level designer Joel Burgess’ blog post, and be sure to read up on our list of best practices for modding. Need more help? Don’t forget to to check out the official Wiki at www.CreationKit.com. In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be sharing tutorial videos for beginners and experts alike. Check out the first tutorial above, and visit the Bethesda Game Studios YouTube Channel for more.

In addition to releasing the Creation Kit and Skyrim Workshop, today we’re allowing players to experience Skyrim as you’ve never seen it before with the Skyrim High-Resolution Texture Pack. Before downloading it from Steam, make sure your system requirements exceed Skyrim’s recommended specs before attempting to install, including Windows Vista/7, a minimum of 4GB of system RAM, and a DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with at least 1 GB of RAM and the latest drivers.

Plasmas have pretty poor image quality (that's why they're cheaper; most aren't even true 1080p resolution) - noticeably inferior to LED HDTVs. Every showroom I've seen you can spot that plasma displays without even trying. CRTs had many advantages but were hugely impractical, suffered from curvature (even with so called 'flat' models), required calibration to properly fill the screen, are unbearable at 60Hz (due to updating pixels linearly as opposed to simultaneously) and still flicker slightly at 75Hz, were slow to change resolution, emitted radiation (you know... that dangerous stuff), etc.

CRTs are dead and rightly so. Now the choice is between:

TN: Low-latency but poor viewing angles and poor colour reproduction;
S-IPS/E-IPS: Great viewing angles and 10-bit colour reproduction but noticeable input lag and no support for 120Hz;
OLED: Great colour with no input lag but obscenely expensive (over £4000/$6300) and with limited availability (OLED).

OLED seems to be the technology that ticks all the boxes (apart from handling of non-native resolutions) but it's a few years before price will start to come down to sane levels.
