Title: News - Xploder HDTV Player for the PS2
Posted: August 12, 2006 (12:47 AM)

Fire International will be showcasing the new PS2 Xploder HDTV Player at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany, August 23rd - 26th. This self-proclaimed "ultimate PS2 upgrade" will allow you to play games and watch DVDs in high definition. The Xploder HDTV Player is scheduled to release on September 1st for a projected price of $39.99 (29.99 - United Kingdom).

But how useful will such an attachment be this late in the PS2 lifespan? And how many games will actually look better in high definition, let alone support HD? These and further questions will need to be answered when Fire meets with members of the press, retailers, and distributors during the Games Convention.

You can't watch DVDs in high definition. The highest resolution current DVDs support is 480p. HD would be 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. Furthermore, as far as I know, there isn't a single game on the PS2 that can be played in 720p.

This add-on sounds bogus!
