Joystiq's Scott Jon Siegel reports on gaming abroad: Overwhelmingly, most expat gamers seem to rely on portables to keep playing games internationally. Some gamers took the full dive and purchased new consoles for their new region. Still others suggested using VGA cables and computer monitors, or reminded me that most modern televisions sold in Europe support NTSC signals, nullifying the problem entirely.
But Siegel isn't going to buy a television. Instead, he invested in a tiny, tiny piece of hardware that lets him play console games on his laptop. It's called the Elgato EyeTV Hybrid and, irony of ironies, it's for Macs only.
