    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?

    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(R)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.
