It's in order to block out noise from the surrounding environment, to prevent the players from hearing the commentary or tell-tale cues from the crowd. The GSL and other big tournaments can get very loud at peak attendance so measures need to be taken accordingly. The actual game sound is broadcast through the white pair of earbuds. Then, to block out ...

The pocketstation is simply a special Playstation One memory card with a screen and a few buttons. A few select Playstation titles could send special data to the Pocketstation where you could play a game on the Pocketstation itself, independent of the Playstation, and sometimes send data back to the game for in-game rewards. A notable user of this system was ...

My daughter has played with my DS (not a DSi, but they're pretty much identical physically) since she was 3 and my DS is still in great shape. They're pretty well constructed - a simple drop by a kid onto the floor doesn't really faze 'em. Obviously throwing it or something would be bad, but hopefully the kid will understand that's a no-no. The touch ...

Sadly, the bad fakes are pretty obvious, but the good fakes are nearly indistinguishable from the genuine article. There's a few easy ways to spot a "bad fake:" Weight - the counterfeits tend to weigh less Cheap plastic - bits may be rattling around inside, or the plastic may be thinner to reduce the cost. If you see a lot of light leakage around the ...

The answer to your question really depends on a number of factors: Do you approach it as a "game" or a "sim"? I.e. what level of realism do you want? For a realistic experience, you just can't beat a wheel and pedals. What kind of controller do you use? A cheap plastic wheel with bungie cord springs isn't going to give you the same level of enjoyment ...

I have played Gran Tourismo 3 (yea, that long ago) with both a racing wheel and a regular PS2 controller. Over all I would say that it did not help my driving. The thing I like about a regular controller is that you can move the joystick way faster than you can a racing wheel. For some this is bad because their turns need to be precise. For others this is ...

From my point of view: Not at all. All steering wheels I tested didn't help me to drive better. It somehow feels very unnatural (nothing compared to sitting in a real car - maybe due to the lack of g forces/inertia).Therefore I prefer game pads with analog sticks: The sticks give You enough precision to confidently maneuver Your car and - at the same time - ...

It seems that all officially licensed original Game Boy games, Game Boy Color games, GBA games, and the eReader should work with the Gameboy player. This post indicates the contrary. Perhaps the forum poster you mentioned had a bootleg copy? While games will works some games with extras such as the tilt sensor (Kirby Tilt ā€˜nā€™ Tumble comes to mind) or ...

No, you can't use the original short remote to control the TV. There are no mentions around the Internet of using this original remote to control TVs, and the Wikipedia article description of the original remote and its longer replacement describes controlling TVs as being a feature introduced by the longer version (emphasis mine): There are two official ...

There's a variety of options, but most of it seems to hinge on game compatibility. For instance, there's the iControlPad, which I think is closest to what you're looking for. You'll need to check and make sure your game is compatible (Final Fantasy from the iOS store doesn't appear to be on their official list, although there looks to be support for a ...

Yes, very easy. I plugged it in and it worked. Yes. I used it for Raven Shield, as well as Battlefield 2, Borderlands, and other PC games. It allowed me to set up profiles and macros, which helped when I needed to do a collection of actions repeatedly (such as aiming a helicopter TV-missile in BF2). I've tried just about every accessory out there, and none ...
