I was shocked to see the Gaming Channel (101) in HD tonight when some other sneak previews probably would have been more to people's liking. Any thoughts?

Thats how the Gaming Channel is. It's always been in HD.

Well, considering that, I guess that's where it will be. You can tell where I stand on gaming.

According to an article I read, this type of thing is BIG in Japan.

But I just can't see anybody caring in the USA.

I'm with you on that. I couldn't believe when I saw people with "team" shirts, like it was a fan club. I watched less than a minute and a half of this. My three-year-old was there when I flipped it on and he seemed to like that it was a soccer video game. After the brief moments of it, I had to flip to another channel.

They are actually proffesional teams. They have General Managers who picked team memebers from a draft they had last week. I think there are 8 different GMs with eight teams. Imagine that ! :lol: I'm a gamer from way back, I started with the first Atari 2600 up to the X-box 360 now. I never ever thought I would be able to watch it on TV but I did find myself watching it for about a hour the other night :grin:

They do... and the show is taped in HD!:D
Although, for the other content on the 101, like the music stuff, high-def is really cool (read: I have an HDTV, I need to stop procrastinating on getting and H®20)

Amen,I miss techtv too. I loved the screen savers. I wish G4 would stick to its nerdy goodness,instead of trying to act like its a channel for the cool crowd,(no ones buying it). I use to love attack of the show before it turned into a show about crap and porn. I guess the good ol days are gone for good.
