I may have to buy a new TV soon, and I'm already dreading the research for it.

I noticed that the new LG LCDs that replace the (terrific and reasonably-priced) TV I bought last year are significantly worse than the old models. It appears that they've been intentionally weakened to make LG's more expensive TVs more appealing.

Yeah, TV shopping can be a pain :\

4GB is plenty of memory. I was hoping for 2GB from the new generation. People complain about long load times now when they just have to fill 512MB of memory, get ready for load times 8 times as long (or will they have and SSD instead of a regular hard drive?).

The biggest issue with load times is the optical drive. The difference between loading times in Skyrim on my PC compared to the 360 on DVD is ridiculous, and I just have a plain HDD in here.

Loading from optical drives also forced the console game devs to use more RAM, as they had to buffer things more frequently and further ahead-of-time than you do on the PC. Hopefully Microsoft guarantees every SKU will have an HDD/SSD this time (as they did with the original Xbox), because that can only help.
