Expensive adapters combined with endless scaling woes can make connecting a console to your LCD monitor or project a daunting prospect. Castrade's Game Box makes the process as painless as possible.

The box will accept video input from your Wii, PS3, or pretty much anything else that uses a common video cable, and properly scale it to an LCD-friendly resolution, preventing your console from reverting to a low-quality video mode just because your 1280x1024 monitor doesn't support the specific 1080i or 720p video setting it expects. (Full compatibility list here). It'll also accept audio inputs from a few proprietary console connectors and send them out through a 3.5mm jack.

Price and availability haven't yet been announced, but the lack of an English language press release doesn't inspire much hope. That's your cue, importers. [Akihabara]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

Does this scaling induce lag at all?
