WiiLand - "Too broke for HDTV? Gaming on the cheap? Boost your morale by laughing at other people's sad-looking gaming setups. Ghetto-fabulous!!!"
I'm gonna go hug my Sony trinitron lol
lol my setup is nearly identical as the 2nd pic, i feel so down
and now I see why most of the world is so in love with the status quo when it comes to vg's.....so much apathy in those photos.... ^^ don't feel bad, you've got to go with what you've got... funny title
They may not be HD, but some of those TVs are decent. I mean they are a good size. I would rather have a larger SD TV than a very small HD. I used to have a 23" HDTV and it blew. Now I have a 32" Vizio and I must say people underestimate Vizio. Its a 32" Plasma and it has the best picture of any 32" I have seen. Perfect for my room.
last pic is pretty beast. not bad at all
Wow, I really pity the first guy.... Boy I hope he doesn't play a co-op game on that.. lol. That 5th picture is what really intrigues me.... That guy has a library of over 50 games, a PSP and an PS3 and yet can't afford a small HDTV... Looks like he really loves his SDTV. ... *Goes and kisses his 42" Plasma*
I have a very nice home theater, but I would never laugh at someone's setup, no matter how bad it was. Not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford expensive things.
Wow, I'm stuck in a warzone called Iraq and this is worst than some of the setups over here.
we need a home show make-over STAT!!
Oh come on lol some of those are hilarious tho especially the speakers one hanging from the wall. Some of my friends have similar setups just hooked up to regular TV and you dont need HDTV to have fun gaming at all, although it is nice to be able to read some of the words lol
I love how some of you feel the need to kiss your TVs. You are not your TV, you are not your f*cking kakies! I see a few old shots in there lacking next gen stuff. That guy playing GT3 waiting for GT4 to come out has a very decent setup. *goes and punches a wall*
Put everything in perspective doesn't it? There's people arguing about a missing pixel, or shadow, or line. While other do what they have to to play and surely enjoy their games. Surely make me feel extremely lucky too.
it's ok, I guess... Edit: Never mind, N4G is not uploading my picture...
Towel on the floor, lone picture on the wall, empty chicken pot pie box lying on the floor, still rocking a gamecube -- that pic screams "Help Me! I've been abducted!" No, seriously - it looks like Saw: Rebirth in that room! Jigsaw "To escape this basement alive, you must play this game through from beginning to end without dying. If your character dies, you die. You may commence." Kid "Wait! What game is it?" Jigsaw "Ninja Gaiden!" Kid "Noooooo!!!"
Funny article. These are sad, but then again i don't play people. Times are tough for some in this economy.
Yea.. They're asking for the "humble" game room setups, and probably a few would just make up some really awful setups just for laughs, such as the 1st pic. The 6th pic is hilariously "ingenious" though. Are those speakers? So much for surround-sound system....
I couldn't afford a HDTV and a PS3 at the same time, so I chose to get the PS3 first. It functioned ok, but I wouldn't go back now I have a Sony Bravia LOL... Edit: And yeah the cellar gamecube setup was way creepy...
If I wasn't trying to immigrate to canada maybe I'd buy more stuff.
The last pic is the saddest, because if you can afford 800 SDTVs then why not break out for 1 great HDTV already.
I got two 52" fullhd tv's one for my 360 and one for my ps3...
The pic with the speakers hanging from the walls and ceiling made me laugh the hardest. While most of those setups were decent enough, some of them are pretty ghetto. :P
I hope these are not the people saying the graphics look better on PS3 or Xbox 360...
These are die hard gamers that love games and want to play no matter what. All they care about is having fun and playing. Cheers. Some people need some kind of video game charity or something. Im calling the home and garden channel maybe we can get a remodeling.
well you gotta do what you gotta do just to play game. i dont have a hdtv in my room so its fine i guess. but in my bro room he have a hdtv with his ps3. i have a wii in my room
most of those are pretty respectable. Also respectable if your wife keeps your hobby out of the living room or den.
Before people go high-fiving each other over their HD setups and laughing at those poor SD mooks, seems like everyone needs a little reminder that most of America don't own HDTVs -- 66% stick rock the SD. Don't believe me, read it yourself [URL=" http://www.n4g.com/wii/News... Let's see how funny it still is when your living room gets plastered on a video games website.
I'm still rockin' the SD, but mine isn't as small as those. My friend was using a 10' SDTV for his 360 until he bought a 37' HDTV.
Wow 10 feet! Thats a huge SDTV! And then he got a 37 foot wide HDTV wow! J/k
for cracking me up without laughing because I don't wanna wake up my family. Oh man that was hard to hold in. But ya, on topic the 6th one is the best one. That's how I have my set up. Actually that's my room to tell you people the truth. Donate people so I can't get a HDTV with a 7.1 surround sound system. Thank You
LMFAO @ the pic! I honestly thought that more people that owned PS3's/360's would have had them hooked up to HDTV's since the prices of them have gone down so much, but I guess the prices have go down a little bit more. When I first got my PS3 in Dec. 2006, I had it hooked up to a 20" SDTV for a year and I got a small 23" Samsung HDTV, and just last month I upgraded to a 40" 1080p Samsung. I hope that more gamers find the means to go HD in the near future, it's just awesome.
Had my ps3 hooked up to an sd tv for the first six months. After having it hooked up to my hdtv for the last year ive been amazed time and time again. I would freak out if my hdtv broke.
i wish i'd kept all my old consoles like alot of these peeps......
lol the guys on the ps3 and CRT.. wow no wonder some people say the PS3's graphics are bad...
People make do with what they can afford.
Why does the size of a T.V. or the setup of your games matter? Should it not just be about having fun and enjoying the games? Money doesn't change the gamer. Yea, a big HDTV would be great but sometimes that just doesn't happen. i think that all you need is a TV and a console. Games are about the fun and enjoyment not "look at me i have money, you dont haha" I thought most of these were not that bad at all.
I had the same opinion until I bought a 42" Plasma and watched my PS3 in Full HD glory.... I am not bragging or showing off, but trust me a Big HDTV and 5.1 or 7.1 set up really drags you into a game. Yes, it increases the Fun quotient as well. Graphics will never be as important as gameplay, but after being spoilt with HDTV's and Full HD, I really dislike a few PS2 games which I loved previously since they appear blotchy now... It's not that they aren't fun, but something always seems missing. There are certain jaw dropping moments which occur in life... My jaw dropped when I popped in games like SOTC, GOW in my PS2 cause the graphics were awesome at that time... I would be lying if I said it didn't happen when I saw Uncharted or Killzone 2 in Full HD...
Relax honey! It does matter or else people wouldn't up grade. You sound a little bitter. It's ok if you can't afford it, hell I can't afford a pimp @ss ride but if you can it is well worth it.
Im sry if it sounded like i was angry about this article. I do agree if you can why not, i have a 42" plasma with HD set up and i cant deny it looks amazing. I was just looking into the fact that it seems that the "gamer demographic" has begun to look down upon people who cant nessisarily afford the best there is. But by all means upgrade if you can. these pictures in the article are by no means "bad".
not all of us can afford an HDTV i cant i don't even have a TV in my room i just have a 720p native monitor that has VGA and DVI. My xbox 360 is hooked up to it through a hdmi to dvi adapter and for my speakers i use 2.1 Klipsch pro media, not the best but i can still play in HD for under $500(not including console).
Just budget yourself to save money. Cut out some stuff that you can live without and take that money to put towards a HDTV. Go to Walmart. They have the best prices. I got a Sanyo 37' 720p for my bedroom for $600.00 from them.
i cant see myself buying anything sanyo i'm saving up for a 22in 1080p Benq monitor that will blow any HDTV away besides the best of the best video quality wise and they are only $250-$300 and they have HDMI in, Even my Gateway 720p moniter looks better than most HDTV's (sanyo, vizio, etc) the only HDTVs that look better than my current monitor are made by good companys like Samsung, Sony,etc. + i play at my desk nest to my computer so i dont need a 32+ inch screen
*hugs computer desk*
What the eff? Most of these pictures are not too shabby. You don't need an 80 inch plasma to dig video games
I'm sure you own a SDTV as well - until you get a HDTV, then these pics will be shabby. I've seen worse though. My old setup was CRAP compared to these. I had a 21" SDTV from the 1980s (I had it since I was born). It had no volume down control and no power button. To turn it off, you had to unplug it, lol. To turn it down, I used a toothpick. It sat on top of my TV stand which was from the 1990s. I finally saved enough money to buy some decent stuff because I believe I deserved it. Gaming on a 50" Plasma HDTV right now, diving into the game. You have an advantage also when the size of the TV is bigger and the picture's more clear. I couldn't play CoD4 back when I had my SDTV because I couldn't see people moving, but increasing the picture's size by 29" made a huge difference. Just my 2¢
Try playing a online shooting game like COD4. The draw distance on a SDTV is sh*tty compared to a HDTV. I would understand if u like playing video games on a casual level then SDTV shouldn't bother u. Whatever gets the job done I guess.
I used to use have a 12" TV, but last year I got a 26". I'm think thats still under the normal size, but I'm happy (I also play, like, 6 feet away from my TV).
I got a 42 inch hdtv in February, and it makes a big difference, but goddamn! You don't have to be on the bleeding edge of technology to play COD4 - that game isn't even in 720p. Nah, man, most of these setups are much less than shabby. I'd go so far as to say they're alright. I've also used whatever was lying around to operate a tv, though. Used to use pencils to change the channel.
failblog will be updated soon...
What would be really sad its seeing Ken suckutara and Nelson Midget on a competition to see who sucks and lick the pink dildo from the PS3 the most. I will pay 25 cents to see which one wins, Ill bet nelson sucks the most.
I used to have a tv that looks like the third pic , but now i got a 32 HD JVC LCD TV , AND there is really a big difference between sd and hd .
These televisions are better than mine. The television I have in my living room is a 30" Sharp CRT that's older than I am. It's like 22 years old and still works great. In my room I have a 19 inch Akai 480p tv. I'm pretty happy with what I got. Nah, I'm lying. I wish I had a huge HDTV with surround sound speakers and the whole shebang. I bet I would enjoy my games a lot more.
its all about the one on the milk crate....."rare suks"
Are your Typical Basment Dwelling BoT Setup's
Can we see your (stacked corner in the bedroom cause I live with the parents) set up? You know, the typical fantart set up. It must be noted that if you are an adult, have a house and have a very decent setup up AND you troll N4G news post, that is even sadder.
You Must Have The Typical Basment Dwelling BoT Setup !!! Dont Take it out on me cause your Set up Sucks
hey Nelson, blocking me just proves what a anonymous scrub you are, for my own pleasure, enjoy.. some quick Iphone shots http://i553.photobucket.com... http://i553.photobucket.com... http://i553.photobucket.com... Your turn, nm, you can't, cause you are just another anonymous fake fantart. game on. special edit for the PM you just sent me. Do you lack so much balls that you send zingers like this... (Anyone who feel's the need to reply in the form of a PM is Real Butt Hurt !!!!! And Why would i want to see your set up You are real and i am fake ? How old are you ? 12 ? Now I normally dont reply to 12 year old kids like yourself so go moan to mummy about your crap setup and not me ) and block right after, what a scrub. I will take everything back if you come out of your little anonymous world.
There is No Plesure to be had with that Setup That's for Damm Sure Thy Silly Little BoT
You are more then welcome to one up me, I know it aint the best in the world, but I am comfortable. I'll wait till you go to your aunts house to scan the polaroid pictures you take of your place. silly little anonymous scrub
Sweet TV. Sweet Monitor. Sweet setup.
Nelson M is to busy blowing his mom to even have time to set up, a game set up. Sweet set up, Montrealien.
Is like an addiction, you take it any way you can get it :P I feel even more blessed now that i have see that lol, here is mine
Nice setup. It must be a pain to have it sit in front of those windows though.
Here's mine, it is temporary because when I move out of this apartment I want to have my computer desk with a 32" HD mounted on the wall right above, I can't wait to have a specified gaming room. I have an apartment now but it is only a one bedroom.
That couch looks really comfy.
These pics are courtesy of Mart, Murderdolls (his PS3 and Xbox 360 setup), Man of the Year, iDystopia, and Why Dis. No wonder they praise all of their Xbox gems (no HD Halo, Gears of War). They can't see what HD gamers see.
i dunno, i saw your PS3 setup that looked like the inside of a Guantanamo Bay cell. But i guess it was as bad as the Nintendo Cube which looked like it was under a house in a sand pit, LOL like saimcheedas place
Too bad for you I have several 1080p screens different sizes through my house and my special gamingloft full of equipment, PS3, 360, and you can see it with the special theme in the forums where the setups are shown. The screen on my gamingloft is 1080p and for the viewing distiance its optimal that way. The sad thing is you're still gaming on your PS2 and with a special marker you made a 3 from that 2. Still begging your parents for a colour TV. How is gaming on a 14 inch black&white screen anyway?
