Microsoft and Samsung to join forces in promoting, what J Allard referenced at the GDC, the HD era. Samsung is set to place over 25,000 Samsung high-definition tvs in Microsoft Xbox retail kosiks wordwide. Apparently the next-gen Xbox will be "paired" (does that mean in a bundle type deal?) with a new 23" Samsung LCD tv that will feature 12 millisecond pixel switching speed to eliminate motion artifacts as well as a Fixed Pixel Device that will eliminate scan lines. Or so they say. All of this is all well and good, but doesn't mean squat if only crap games are available. More detailshere.
