This place never ceases to amaze me.
When all these gigantic malls have been put up, this place still has a niche. Now, it’s the celphone, “DIBIDI,” PS2, PC software and gadget heaven. Being a gadget freak myself, I am naturally drawn to this place.
I recently bought a wireless gun controller for my PS2 but the input jack is the standard “yellow” RCA plug. I have been used to plugging my console through the “S-video” jack, through a specialty AV cable since the picture quality improvement is significant. Hence, I had to switch back to the “ordinary” cables everytime I play Time Crisis 3, Crisis Zone or Vampire Night. Reaching down the back of the console that is “well-entrenched” in its place is likewise a hassle.
Surfing the net, I discovered the existence of a specialty cable that has S-video output but also has a guncon port near the plug to the console. It looks something like this:
As a last resort, I went to Greenhills. I had no idea where to look because I heard Virra Mall was renovating. Fortunately, there were poster saying Shopsville hosted all the PS2/PC stores that used to be there. So I went in to look and guess what? I found it in the second store I entered. HOOOORRAAAAY! And it works (spoken in the accent of the girl in La Salle Scandal)!
I now have S-video quality picture for my guncon games, without straining to change cables every time I play them.
And the image quality for these games likewise shows a remarkable difference.
And of course, some of you cannot relate to this. Some more are thinking: Why is this mid-thirties lawyer still playing video games? I’m not alone, mind you. Ron Allan and I are two peas in a pod…
To them, I just plead to bear with me. At least I don’t smoke, excessively drink or womanize…
By the way, I almost bought a new celfone, too…good for me I was able to resist….
