Xploder announced yesterday in a surprise statement that they would be producing HD Upscalers exclusively for the PS2. 'Sounds great!' was my initial reaction, until I saw who was making it. Xploder. Nice. They must have broken thousands of consoles, mashed up so many saved files and games etc. with their dodgy cheat packages. I just wouldn't let them get their products within a mile of my PS2. However, when the Upscaler is released, I will buy it anyway. Why? To see if they can improve their less than impressive reputation and regain some trust among the gaming community. It's in our blog description 'unbiased', so unbiased we shall be. When this comes out for launch on September 1st, we'll let you know what we think as soon as we can.
Whatever the outcome, at least it saves you £600 on a PS3.
