I lied! Seems like we are at the beginning of a new range of cheap projectors. One of the first being the Mega Pro Game Projector. Have a look here; http://uk.specialreserve.com/q_GG5033_mega_pro_game_proj.html Ok the spec ain't great but the results are watchable and the impact is good. Special Reserves price is a bit profiteering. Realistically it could be sold at £199 with a good margin. here it is at goldenshop which is about £134. http://www.goldenshop.com.hk/AI-trad/Misc_htm/m_gproject.htm It does show that very low cost projectors are on the way. Later models will improve the brightness/contrast and increase resolution I'm sure. The above projector is just as good for dvd movies as games (i.e. still crap). It won't take long for a projector/dvd combi to come out and later a full home cinema system with built in projector too I would have thought. Its got to be a positive sign that the chinese are starting to get interested in the projector market at the low end. Should drive prices down generally for Japanese models.
