3D uptake is practically nonexistent right now and will be for the foreseeable future.

Sure, no one wants it, but it's in every TV released in the last 6 months. Want a medium to high end HDTV? Well, you're going to get 3D with it, like it or not. All the best 2D TVs have 3D built in.

Unless you're buying a cheap TV at Walmart (which a huge chunk of people do) you're getting 3D with it.

...

But that's because avoiding it isn't an option if you want a modern TV with youtube, netflix and great black levels.

Are you speaking specifically about Sony TVs? Specifically about IPTV-capable TVs?

Either way, I'm calling bullshit. I can pull up a number of TVs on Best Buy's website, whether IPTV or not, whether Sony or not, that do not include 3D.

Unfortunately The Walking Dead is using the BBC episode format(6 per season) and is now on hiatus until next October. I can't imagine the viewership it picked up will necessarily stick around that long, I hope it doesn't end up getting Rubicon'd. I really enjoyed it although there are definitely some dialogue problems at times that are probably related to poor writing.

Haven't had a chance to check out Raising Hope yet. Boardwalk Empire has great production values but it seems to be all over the place and not really have an idea of where it wants to go. I don't really find many of the characters very compelling either.

The second season of Walking Dead is supposed to have 13 episodes.

Secret not-so-spoiler text: Hopefully all of them are better than last night's episode.

Walking Dead had a good first episode (and I really dig the intro) but yeesh it's tanked. The writing is just terribad.

Read yesterday that they fired all the writers and Darabont isn't planning on having any for the second season.

This entire console generation is dead to me at this point.

There were some great console games this generation, I have to disagree with you. I think there have been some huge disappointments as well, your list is pretty accurate there but that's nothing new in the industry. Uncharted 2 was great, Red Dead Redemption, Alan Wake was highly underrated, Assassin's Creed 2 and so on. There were plenty of gems. I think it's more accurate to say that there were a bunch of turds that received way more financial success than they deserved.

As an aside though FFXIII was one of the worst games I have ever played. It is the highest production value piece of garbage ever produced.

Demon's Souls!

The motion capture stuff on the pc looks interesting, there is a youtube clip of someone showing how the camera captures in 3d and creates a picture, or mabye it was 2d capture and plasters that over an image with depth? Not sure exactly what it's doing but it looked interesting.

There's a collection of videos here. I thought the nightshot video was pretty interesting.

I've heard of them being legal in certain areas...but it's pretty rare.

This doesn't really give a list of legal areas, but it's something:

They forgot one. Flashlights. Every week at the observatory we have people come up and somehow can't cope with the red (night-vision preserving) lights we have on and use their phone screens as flash lights, which prevent anyone else from keeping their night vision.

Good one. Not just the screens, either. There's an app that uses my phone's LED flashes as a flashlight if I need.

Interesting that you "discovered" that before it was released.

GT5 Prologue captain smarmypants. I mean that I seem to enjoy the buildup to the GT series more than I seem to get use out of the actual games but after this many iterations even that's faltered.

I've spent a grand total of 2 hours with GT5 Prologue, I think I'm just spent on those games.

Ah, I gotcha. And I didn't consider Prologue...just the crappy time trial "demo" they put out.

I understand where you're coming from on the more-of-the-same front, but I'm still interested I think. It'll be nice to have a GT on a current-gen console. I played the hell out of GT3.

And you're right. Pretty smarmy. My apologies...bored Fridays

I don't even care anymore. It's the fifth iteration in a racing series that feels largely unchanged in the past eight years. It was delayed so many times I pretty much gave up on it and discovered that it was one of those cases where the hype is more interesting than the actual product.

I've actually been using my PS3 more than my Xbox in the last six months. After my subscription runs out, I doubt I'll be re-upping with Xbox Live at their new prices.

Still can't say that PSN is equivalent to XBL, though. It has more to do with the games I'm playing and the people I play with. PSN needs a few things XBL does well, and unfortunately I bet they add them to PSN+

I played SSX Tricky back in college and it was enjoyable. Not sure I'd still be interested, but I've seen worse series get rebooted.
