Head-to-Head Comparison Blu-ray Vs. HD DVD Titles
Hi-Def Digest has posted the first head-to-head reviews of three movies recently released in both Blu-Ray and HD DVD formats. While none of the three cross-platform titles is really deserving of the high-definition treatment, at least the comparison gives us some sens of the two formats in an apples-to-apples test.

It’sOfficial: E3 2007 Downsized

It’sOfficial: E3 2007 Downsized
The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) made an official announcement today in response to the rumors floating around that E3 2007 would be canceled. The show will go one but with a new, smaller format. According to the ESA the event “…is evolving into a more intimate event focused on targeted, personalized meetings and activities…” In addition, Gamespot is reporting that ESA President Douglas Lowenstein has stated that the show will be pushed back until July 2007 to “give publishers more time to polish their holiday releases.” (I’m betting that the ESA could use the extra time to get their act together as well.) Word has it that the exhibit hall, booth babes and schwag will be a thing of the past, and the show will be focused much more on industry insiders in private meeting rooms and conferences.

Video of Record Breaking Geometry Wars Game in Progress
I recently stumbled across this video posted by k4rn4ge, the dude with the all-time high score on Geometry Wars Evolved for the Xbox 360. Personally, I’ve never managed to get past 250,000 points on the game, so I’m in awe of this unbelievable score of 21,242,600 points.

DVD Tv Combo Channels Apple Looks (Sorta)
Our friends over at Oppo Digital, makers of the universally loved OPDV971H DVD Player, have just released this odd little DVD/LCD TV combo, the LT-2007.

Is Directv’s HD Dvr Finally Coming?

Is Directv’s HD Dvr Finally Coming?
For those of us who have DirecTV’s HR10-250 TiVo, it’s a bittersweet reality that a new HD DVR has been in the works for quite some time. While I personally love the TiVo UI, the current HD DVRs have been fraught with problems ranging from overheating, to HDMI connectivity bugs, to dying hard drives.

Galaga Comes to Xbox Live Arcade

Galaga Comes to Xbox Live Arcade
One of my favorite arcade games of all time, Galaga, has made its way onto Xbox Live Arcade today. Unlike some of the other classic games to make it to XBLA (hear me Frogger!) this one appears to be a faithful rendition of the original game, complete with online scoreboards and Xbox Live achievements.
