havent these been available for some time now?

I'm sure they have but It's a new Belkin product so it's news.

I like this bit though "The device is powered by HDMI cable connection to HDTV."

I hate it when some of those switcher boxes require an external power cable to function.

Please explain.. This is absolutely nothing new. It's not a review, so we don't even find out if this thing is any good or not.

....Oh games have been released before! that means every game is nothing new right?

just because some thing isn't new doesn't mean squat, if you dont like news then leave, but this is news worthy, its about tv tech, and thats important to gamers, this is not JUST A gameing site because stuff important to gamers is pc's, consoles, tvs, surround sound systems...tech....

Oh and front page? heres the deal about front page.....when a news article gets above 50 degrees it goes to the front page...so its your own fault it went to the front page.

OH and i must add...17 approvals...JamieSI (10) - 2 hours ago an admin....hmmmm

and mighty you need to learn about n4g.com when a news article gets 50 degrees it AUTOMATICALLY goes to the front page, understand?

i think he just trying to say that this isnt exactly gaming news is it? and yes i know its in the Tech section where it should be, but thats where this type of "news" should stay, there no need for this on the Home page (yes i know you have nothing to do with it getting there).

its a HDMI switcher mate, how ever you look at it, its not gaming.

HDMI Switchers are useful for people with a 360 and PS3 and only 1 HDMI port on the TV.

HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray isn't gaming news either but it's still here and people like to follow it.

mighty_douche3433d ago

dude i realise this is useful for people who fit your bill of both consoles with 1 HDMI port, but dont you think those people would look into a switcher themselves? i doubt they would use GAMING websites in hopes of an answer.

I was considering getting one of these, but I heard there was a noticeable loss of video quality; can anyone clear this up?
