Trying Something New

I have always been a PS3 person.  Recently our nephew brought us a XBox home and asked me to sell it.  I knew enough about gaming systems to know that this unit wouldn’t be good for me unless it had a XBox wireless adapter because I don’t want to run anymore Cat5 cables.

I checked through everything that he had brought me and found that there was no wireless adapter.  I am now trying out the XBox to see how I like the experience.  I will let you know more once I have tried out a few games.

Gaming In My House Has Been Lagging

Ever since the Easter weekend shutdown of the Playstation Network I haven’t been able to play any of my favorite games on my Playstation 3.  My wife has been very thankful for this in some respects because she doesn’t have to worry about the machine gun sounds running through the living room, and oozing into the remaining parts of the house.  For quite some time she has been trying to convince me to get some wireless headphones, but I told her that they will not do because my headset would be a bit hard to wear and use.

Does anyone know of any sort of wireless headset that has a decent microphone in it so that I can get the best sound, and also be able to talk to the other players?

Cheap TV Display For Miscellanous Use

I have been trying to find a cheap display that I can take with me as needed for my Playstation 3, and whatever else.  Well today I found a very cheap solution.  If you have a newer lcd monitor with DVI connectors that isn’t being used then just get yourself dvi to hdmi cables.  You may not get the highest resolution, but it will serve the purpose.

If you have any other money saving solutions please feel free to let me know, or comment here.
