Anyone buy tickets? I never saw the VIP package for $128.50. I got a $125; that should be it...right?......

Hi and thanks for looking.
I would love to have an MP3 plaer with at least 80GB of storage and a good to great built-in speaker. If possible, a screen to display track info and a great battery life would be awesome as well :)
Anything close to that awesomeness out there? The closest I have is my phone, a Droid X, but I'm not sure what's the biggest MicroSD it can take and the battery would drain with lots of music playing.
- Move all LED indicator lights to the hinge
- Move the stylus insert to the side of the system
- Move the microphone to the center of the system, right in the middle of the hinge
- Lighter and smaller system
...wait, that sounds a lot like the DS Lite :) Nintendo, we can tell what you did there; paving the ground for the next 3DS remake. Nice.
- Better 3D viewing angle (maybe easier to play tilting / motion games)
- Much, much better battery life!
- Slightly improved speaker volume
- Is there a way to change screen brightness in game? If not, then add that.
- Models without a black panel surrounding the top screen; is that really needed for a better 3D effect? Looks weird on the blue 3DS.
Anywho, my $0.02. I know I'll be getting the next 3DS, but I'm actually waiting for the '3DS XL' or whatever they call it. I just need this one for now to play Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D as soon as it launches. I know, I'm super guilty of supporting 3-4 system remakes; sorry :)
Oh wow; it's back! I started this thread, y'know? :)
Yeah, I tried the 3DS at Best Buy and it's almost everything I expected; I can shift either the system or my head side to side, and I see different 'views' of what's going on in the game; different perspectives, with background objects having more 'shift' than objects on the front. What I didn't anticipate seeing was a 'dark spot' while shifting between the images; the screen looks dark, and I couldn't distinguish which of the 2 views was being displayed.
So the two perspectives are there, sure, but the 3D effect can only be 'seen' when you see both perspectives at once, with two working eyes.
I did; they seem to be working, still in 'dual channel' mode. But I wonder if there are any drawbacks to using 3 DIMMs in dual channel mode.
test it out? i mean you have the 3 memory stick installed so use something like cpuz etc and it should give you info if its running in dual or single channel modecyanblues
I had 16GB of DDR2 dual channel RAM on 4 4GB DIMMs on my Vista 64 rig. I started having random blue screen crashes and sure enough, the third DIMM has gone bad (tested with MemTest86+, removed DIMM and errors are gone).
I'm wondering, since this is dual channel, would Vista 64 and other 64-bit programs such as 3D rendering software suffer if I use 3 DIMMs? I don't really need to replace the bad DIMM but I don't want one of the three to go unused.
I guess my ? is; can the computer still use 12GB of RAM on 3 DIMMs in 'dual channel'? Would the third DIMM go unused, or used less, or something? :)
Hi and thanks for your help. I want to start a PSP game but I don't have that much gaming time now (thank you, work!). I want to be done with the game I pick before Pokemon Black / White come out for the DS a month from today. Which of these PSP games is shorter on your experience?:
Final Fantasy I
Final Fantasy II
Mimana: Iyar Chronicle
Lunar: Silver Star Harmony
Phantasy Star Portable 2
Star Ocean: First Departure
If you've played any of these games, if you could tell me how long it took you to beat it, that would help me a lot :) Thanks in advance!
Hmm. Well, yeah, people with one working eye certainly can't see '3D' life, real or mimicked by a screen. Thing is, when I see the 3DS slightly from the left, wouldn't that be a different 'image' than if I view it from slightly to the right? Since the 3DS produces two top-screen images simultaneously, wouldn't there be some way for people like me to tell them apart, although not at the same time? Man, 3D is confusing :)
People with one eye won't be able to see the 3D effect. Although you have the general idea correct of how the 3D functions, you can't get the effect by shifting your single eye's view back and forth. You need to see two images simutaneously with each eye, the brain is then 'tricked' when it meshes the two slightly different views together.RahnAetas
Hi and thanks for looking. I have glaucoma, and because of it I lost my left eye when I was 8. I've never really cared about '3D', I guess because I've gotten quite used to a 2D life; it's like my whole life is on a single screen :) But then, the 3DS is on its way, with 3D as the biggest new factor, and being a huge DS fan, I can't just ignore it.
I'm still having a bit of a hard time trying to understand how 3D works for the vast majority of you, people with two working eyes. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but basically, you always see two slightly different angles of the same object or scenery, therefore being able to perceive depth quite well. As far as I know, the 3DS will recreate this by sending two different images to each side, or eye, without glasses. These quick renders should get the point across...I hope:
Your left eye would see the 4, your right eye would see the 6. My question is, wouldn't people with one eye be able to see some sort of 3D effect on the 3DS? What I'm thinking is that, if I look at the screen, with my one good eye, from the right, I'll see the 6. As I move the screen to the right, I'll see both numbers (top image), and eventually I'll see the 4. This might happen by...
A) Moving my head horizontally from left to right and / or right to left
B) Moving the 3DS horizontally from left to right and / or right to left
C) Tilting the 3DS on place, from left to right and / or right to left
So I might not get the full 3D experience, seeing both sides of the die at the same time, but maybe one of those three options will let me see some sort of pseudo-3D effect.
Of course, this is assuming that both images don't have to be seen (processed?) at the same time, in which case my whole idea is most likely incorrect. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Hi and thanks for looking. Please help! This one's really bothering me.
About a month ago I bought these speakers for my new HDTV:
I love them; they sound amazing. They are plugged into my TV by a 3.5mm plug cable that splits into a red and a white 3.5mm plugs. The thing is, my sister is telling me that many 5.1 surround systems have 1,000 watts of power (about 200 watts per speaker, give or take?). My speakers cost $80 and only have 40 watts, although that seems to be RMS and not a peak.
So what I want to know is if I overspent on just 40 watt speakers, or if 1,000+ watts on surround systems is just marketing bliss.
