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 suck in sunlight. It's the only issue with them. If the sun hits them they're virtually useless, and even during the day they feel a bit dim. I have the 58VT25, which was the 2010 flagship, and adore the thing. Not a single day goes by that I don't marvel at how smart a purchase it was. But for that 25 minutes a day it's in sunlight it's frustrating. Fortunately I'm watching it during those 25 minutes maybe once a month.

LCD/LED, especially locally dimming, is nice, and a must if you get a lot of direct sunlight where you're placing your TV, but only a few brands are worthwhile (definitely not Sharp), and the 2011 TVs were a step back from the 2010 in image quality. There was a push for thinness and looks over image quality, and there was a move to glossy to make up for this, which did a lot to negate the direct sunlight advantage of LCDs. Indirect bright rooms, though, it still triumphs by being much brighter than a plasma.

But man, a high quality plasma that's been professionally calibrated is a thing of beauty.

Strange. I wonder if that's a personal thing. I tend to watch our Plasma right during the time when the glare from the window is visible in it (it's an angled glare, however, more of a "I can see the window in the reflection") and it really doesn't bother me. I forget it's there within second. At the same time, when sunlight hits my LED (window is straight behind it), it annoys me so much that I finally just give up and close the curtains even though it's 2pm.

Edit :
One thing to keep in mind that no one mentioned is that they are hefty, my friend has one that is like 75-100 pounds easily

Holy shit. Did he get one made out of fucking concrete? My 46" plasma weighs like 40 odd pounds?
