    Two really nice new purchases I got over the last week or so:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Street Fighter Zero 3 for the GBA and Fist of the North Star on the PS4. SFZ3 is a huge favourite of mine thanks to how impressive the port is - getting all the characters and moves into one GBA cart (along with a ton of modes) is really impressive. Plays incredibly well as well.
    FOTNS is by Sega's Yakuza Team, and its basically a Yakuza game with FOTNS characters. Only played the demo so far, but I already know its amazing. Can't wait to start this once I get a couple other games finished.

    Some recent arrivals. Rime Collector's Edition for Nintendo Switch which is a Spanish exclusive. The Count Lucanor Special Edition for Nintendo Switch is also an exclusive to Spain as it has a few more extras than the other edition. And finally Human: Fall Flat for the Switch.

    lesdennis you think you'd wear that in public? If I'd see you, you bet I would come to say hi, but I am unsure about the rest of society xD

    Well, my game budget took a dive yesterday. I have two main hobbies, games and cars. Did a 320 mile round trip to Wales yesterday and bought a car! So apologies if I'll be a bit of a slow burner game wise around here for a bit. Ill be concentrating on playing them more so as least that's a plus.

    Can't wait to get off work today to check these Marseille mcables for my PSTVs on my monitor and big screen.[​IMG] [​IMG]
    Oh boy, hopefully these cables actually make a difference in picture quality [no they're not the extremely expensive ones either]. If you think about it. PSTV upscales ps vita games to 720p or 1080i but these cables should do a better job at smoothing out the jaggies so we'll see!

    The ultimate solution would probably be to just use a 720P TV, that way you would be rescaling as little as possible. (only the Vita-TV's internal 544p to 720P rescale)

    Unless you had a generic brand tv, it's hard for me to imagine that this cable would have a higher rescaling quality than a decent tv would although that's probably my pessimism coming out in me hehe.

    Someone said that he uses these cable on his PSTV and it smoothed out the jaggies. If what the description on the packaging is true, then it actually upscales the "quality" like a framemeister of some sorts. Now, there are modern tvs that actual upscale like so but my TVs just SUPPORT up to 1080p, not actually upscaling anything. These cables are suppose to do more than just up-res and the pstv already up-res vita games from 544 to as high as 1080i. As you see the mcable has to be plugged into power. I'll keep you guys posted.

    I don't know about this cable but I've seen ones like this one and the only thing they did is using some sort of AA on the whole image, it looked more blurry to me than a true upscale.

    But I don't know if this brand does the same, but the cable does look the same like the ones I'm talking about.

    You may be talking about the high-end expensive Monster Brand cables.

    Okay zodaex and Vita_Girl...IT F!@KING WORKS YEEESSSSSS AHHHHHHH!!! [RUNS OUTSIDE NAKED CHANTING VITA VITA VITA]. Here's a few pics and yes it does smooth out the jaggies. Bare in mind, Sonic Racing is a 2012 title so...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    1080p^^[​IMG] [​IMG]
    Setup in the rear of my RCA monitor and the usb w/the blue light is providing power to the cable from the tv.

    I recommend these cables! Very affordable 4ft high-end hdmi upscaler cables. You'll definitely notice a difference I person eventho I took the shots with a great camera on my smartphone. My search is now over! Yes...whew! [Calm now]. Most of these pictures were captured in motion. BE SURE TO SET YOUR PSTV RESOLUTION TO AUTOMATIC OR 720P SO THAT THE CHIP CAN READ AND CONVERT THE SIGNAL TO 1080P!

    Two of your 1080p screen shots have significant ghosting artifacts (the first and last 1080p shots), but I don't see any ghosting on any of the three 720P screen shots. I'm wondering if the cable is producing the ghosting effect, or if that ever happens in 720P mode as well.

    Most of the shots were taking while the camera in the game was moving so yea it'll appear that there's ghosting in the PICTURE. I don't have a flag ship camera so it's a little hard to take still shots of moving pictures or objects with my current smartphone camera. But I notated that the images were in motion while shot.
