Xploder will be releasing an add-on that will give PS2 owners a little high-def love.
Available for both PAL and NTSC PS2 consoles, the Xploder HDTV Player allows you to:
•Select a HD 720p or 1080i setting to give a clearer, crisper picture quality for all PS2 games.
•Play games in Enhanced Definition (ED) TV 480p mode; a higher resolution for improved image quality.
•Choose from a variety of superior VGA options.
Driven by proprietary Xploder software, you simply put the disc in the PS2 console and use the simple on-screen interface to select the optimum configuration for your system (HD, ED or VGA modes) from the options menu. The details are automatically saved to your memory card, so there's no need to reconfigure the settings every time you use your console.
The HDTV Player also includes RGB component cables. This is a pretty interesting device and could be useful for those who want somewhat HD gaming and movies and don't want to take out a second mortgage to buy new stuff. No word on release date or price. Image courtesy of Crowdedbrain
