    HD Component RGB Cable for Sony PlayStation PS2 and PS3 User Guide

    We have recently received some negative feedbacks regarding the HD Component RGB Cable for Sony PlayStation PS2 and PS3 which were very odd since we inspected every single returned cable and they all seemed to work perfectly!

    Anyhow, a customer emailed us with a few very helpful guidance in regards to using this cable and his exact comment was as follow:

    BTW I noticed there were negative feedbacks ( said it did not work and faulty etc ) left for you with regards of this cable.

    I think those customers did not know how to connect the RGB ( RED GREEN BLUE ) High Definition cables and those RWY ( RED WHITE YELLOW ) audio/Video composite cables.

    If they connect to a standard TV ( which is not a HD ready or have no Digital Input RGB socket ) then they must only connect the RWY composite cables to their TV ( which the Red and White are for Audio output and the Yellow for the Video Output ).

    If their TV are HD ready and also have the RGB socket. Then they should connect the High Definition RGB Video cables to the RGB socket ( and then the Red and White composite Audio cables from the RWY cables to the audio connection corresponds to the RGB socket and LEAVE and DO NOT connect the Yellow composite Video cable ) !!!

    Hope this helps ?! Any comments, welcome.

    HD Component RGB Cable for Sony PlayStation PS2 & PS3 cable available from HitariTrade for only £1.99!

    Tony Hawk Shred skateboard controller does not calibrate with the Wii console

    We have recently been receiving quite a few queries regarding an issue about the calibrating the Tony Hawk Shred and Tony Hawk Ride skateboard controller with the Wii console. The post below gives you a few practical steps to help you calibrating your skateboard controller with the wii console and also details of the manufacturer for any further technical queries. Common questions as follow: My skateboard controller will not calibrate, no matter what I do. What should I do? The Answer: Try batteries from a different device that you know is functional, like a TV remote. It’s possible that walls, people, or other entities are triggering the IR sensors on the sides of the board. To prevent this issue, make sure that there are four feet of free space on all sides whenever playing and that there are no large metal objects nearby. Return to the main menu and select “Options”, then select “Calibrate Board” and follow the onscreen instructions. Make sure to follow the steps exactly and hold the board in the calibrating positions for the amount of the time the video that is playing is telling you. During the initial IR sensor calibration process ensure that you are standing away from the board and that you are motionless. When it is time to calibrate each individual IR sensor you will then be asked to stand on the board and will be shown some positions on the board to hold. Ensure that your entire foot is covering the lens of the particular IR sensor you are instructed to cover. Also ensure the board is facing the right direction. The buttons on the board should be on the left side of the board. Cover the whole sensor for the full count. Tony Hawk will say "Got it" when the timer is finishing. Continue to hold that board position until the button prompt to continue appears. Stepping off of the board before that will cause an error even after Tony Hawk says "Got it". You do not need to press a button to continue to move on to the next step. The calibration video will move on to the next step on its own. If you still have issues with the calibration then try lowering the lights in the room. Sometimes bright lights can interfere with the IR sensors. If failure to calibrate persists, move the board over a few inches in any direction from the start point of the failed calibration. Repositioning the board from the start point has shown to help during calibration issues. If trying the above does not resolve the issue then please contact the Activision customer service warranty website. You can submit a warranty replacement via the link here: Please note that using the self-serve website is the preferred and quickest method of starting a new warranty claim. the original post can be found in Activision "manufacturer" forum. Tony Hawk Shred is available for sale on Hitari Trade website:

    Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective DS Game

    Ghost Trick Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is a story driven puzzle game where the player controls the ghost of the recently deceased protagonist to try to find out who murdered him; he has limited time as when the sunrises on the following morning he will cease to exist. The game starts with the death of the protagonist, Sissel, who has lost his memory and has no idea who he is. The player then controls his soul to possess various unanimated objects to travel to various locations and eavesdrop on conversations of living people around him to gain clues about his missing identity and who murdered him. Sissel can only travel a limited distance between objects, and possess selected items that have a “core”. Certain objects allow him to perform “Ghost Tricks”, where Sissel can use the “powers of the dead” to interact with the object, for example flip a switch or to open a door. The player can travel to different locations of the city in which the story takes place by possessing telephones and “calling” the desired destination. Sissel cannot take control of living beings or dead bodies, however he can communicate with the souls of the recently deceased and witness the four minutes leading to the death, he can also act in those four minutes to try to change their fate. The gameplay is puzzle based, but there are elements of timing and precision required. The player must perform Ghost Tricks on different items in the proper order and timing to affect what is happening in a scene. Another big part of the game mechanics consists of witnessing murders and the events leading to them and then trying to find an alternative chain of events that leads to a different outcome.


    · Compelling and intriguing story, boasting great writing and characterisation

    · Enter the Ghost World to affect things in the living world

    · The game boasts a very distinctive visual style, bright block colours and cel shaded look, in motion the graphics are equally as charming with characters moving in a very lifelike way and quirky cartoon-like elements; such as a dancing detective and in a later level a Heath Robinson / Rube Goldberg machine.

    · The gameplay is like a puzzle, there is only one solution in each scenario and the player need to work which objects to manipulate and in the correct sequence to successfully open new paths of investigation. A secondary task is and need to watch what is happening and eavesdrop on people present to gather information; this in turn can also open other paths of investigation, such as new locations to travel to.

    · The player can enter the Ghost World where the passage of time pauses with the “Ghost” option. Here he can possess objects by moving Sissel’s soul (a blue flame) onto the “core” of the object, these are white spots seen in objects, to possess them. The world is in red when in the Ghost World and only objects with cores can be possessed.
