Almost Live from CES !

Almost Live from CES !

Microsoft had the excellent idea to broadcast the Bill Gates' CES presentation on the net, so I captured it and extracted the part about Xbox and Forza (with a "funny" surprise included). As expected Xbox 2 has not been mentioned directly, but a few things were in fact about it. The whole wireless and multimedia convergence speech could (and is according to CNet) be a glimpse of the future for Xbox 2. Interesting.

I've had this exact same bug happen quite a few times when I was trying the beta last month in fact, even during Kiki's presentation :)
Morfeeis: I do not have anyone at CES, so I doubt I'll get anything interesting.

Thanks BlimBlim for putting the video online for us! :) I really enjoyed watching it and Conan O'Brien was hilarious, as always. lol :D

The New York City track looks INCREDIBLE...I cannot wait to race it! I'm so glad we actually got a glimpse of it. It was also very interesting to see what Bill Gates had to say about Forza Motorsport and the entire presentation was impressive, except for that one technical hiccup of course. ;)

Thanks again BlimBlim and keep up the great work!

That game looks amazing. I saw them playing in my hometown of NYC and was like "Yay!!". When is the release date for this?

    alimokrane @KORNdog: It's so confusing man.. I have been slaving for a week for a decent 4kt TV and I keep hitting all these little things and it's annoying lol. (5 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's all i really understand of it. seems HDR10 is what most TV's have though, so you're probably safe with that. (47 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog a dolby featured one can still do HDR10. but it doesnt work the other way around. also dolby's goes up to 4000nits (arguably future proof but no TV supports it yet) and HDR10 goes up to 1000 nits. (48 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: it's basically just a "brand" of HDR, HDR10 is pretty much the standard right now, and i think dolby do one too? (50 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane There are version of HDR? I can see some TVs have HDR 10 listed... what does that mean? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: Sadly I have to agree. This was a big let down for me.... I like FF13 better, there I said it! (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it's going to take more than a car with big wheels to save that pile of crap tbh. (3 Hours ago)
