Title: Show us where you play!
Post by: aN4rK1 on 10:14 PM - 07/18/08
Saw this thread on the playstaion group on facebook, thought id start it here, thought it might be kinda fun.

What to do: Post a few pics of you gaming setup, add some comments on what you componets are and so on.

Ill start, bare with my camera its a pos.
Consists of:
- 42" sharp 1080p LCD tv
- Sony 5.1 System
- Semi decent pc
- Dvd player
- PS3
- XBOX360
- Wii
- monster cables all around (yes i know they dont do anything but i got them for less then regular cables sooo haha)
- Accesories: Xim1, soon to be xim2 also :D, lots off wii stuff, 2 sports kits, 2 wheels, 2 wii shooters, sennheiser headphones for those laaaaate nites. Does me pretty well.
I also made a lap table thing like obsiv has for my keyboard and mouse.

Also I added a pic of my racing cockpit if anyone is insterested, it has:
- TrackIR, head tracking stuf so if i move my head right, itll do the same in game
- Home made button box, for extra buttons
- LCR rpm and gear display
- 20x4 Lcd, for oil temp, water temp, tire temp, etc
- 4 point racing harness
- also has sound shakers on it, shakes to bass and stuff, when i got over ruble stones on low rpm ranges, ohhhhh man
- Gloves
- FIA spec Puma racing shoes (Fire proof LOL)

all of the stuff mentioned above is used only with the PC games.

Haha, so thats my setup.

I see a PS3...  HISS!

Anyway, I thought there was a thread like this before..?

EDIT:  Nope, nevermind, that was an a/s/l thread, some people just put pics of their rigs in there.  Fair enough.

EDIT, EDIT:  Here it is :)

I have a PS3 with two games and 5 blu-ray movies.  The games are motorstorm and time crisis 4.  Neither of them are that great.  I got MGS4 and I keep on dying.  I got it as a birthday present..  And a christmas present.  I didn't know what I wanted at the time so I said PS3 as a joke... :(

Actually, on the right side of the picture, you cant see it much but beside the seatbelt, there is a round empty tube. This is used to hold the keyboard and mouse :P I dont use it much because I have my lap board with I like better. It swivels too, i only really use it just to use the mouse and keyboard in racing game menus and such.

Infinity IL speakers for 5.2 surround sound I forgot I have 2 subs. One in each IL50.  ;)

And I just have a crappy Dell computer running my videos and music in the living room.

Here's my setup.  It's not too powerful, but that's because I've been spending my money more on the display side of things.

PC
ATI 1950XT 256MB
AMD 5200+
Raid 0 2x WD Raptor 74GB
Auzentech HDA Digital X Mystique Gold 7.1
(This weekend I'm purchasing a Black Magic Intensity Pro HD capture card)

Sound
Klipsch Promedia GM 5.1 or something like that

Display
Samsung Synchmaster 216bw
2x Sharp XR-30X Notevision projectors

I'll be getting my own xbox 360 once I've tested my XIM2 with my friends, as well.

Sorry about the poor pictures, they were taken with my phone.

Nice projectors.

I must say that projector setup is pretty bad @#$%.
Title: Re: Show us where you play!

NICE!!!!!!
I have been trying to talk the wife into a projector setup.

I have been trying to talk the wife into a projector setup.

Thanks. Tell her it's a lot more economical than a large HD TV, but only if you're willing to put up with a resolution of 2048x768.  Each of my two projectors costs about $700 right now, and I'm sure you can find cheaper. 

A single 1280x720 projector costs as low as $800, too, so that is probably the best idea for anyone wanting to get into projectors, as you don't need a video server for it.

ok i was going to ask how you were using 2

are you using a screen or did you paint the wall?
Title: Re: Show us where you play!
Post by: Lev_Astov on 02:34 PM - 07/25/08
I painted the wall.  It's far more economical no matter how big or small your screen is.  Just google "projector screen paint" or something like that.

Post by: 1nfinitum on 12:08 AM - 07/27/08
I can see the split but you did a pretty good job covering it up.  That's gotta rock hardcore for games. :]  Too bad you can't use a 360 in that resolution :(
