Sharp’s Getting Gamey

Sharp wants to sell LCD TVs to everyone, including gamers. They call gamers a “special market”. For these “special” people, Sharp is offering the second generation Gaming GP-3 Series of 1080p LCD HDTVs. If you’re a die-hard gamer with $1,599 to spend on a 32-inch LCD TV, you can have your choice of piano black, dark red wine, and white.

The sets are slim, include a swivel stand, and have a “Game Mode” that gooses the picture for game playing. The models also include Sharp’s Vyper Drive game mode that’s supposed to eliminate perceptible lag time between game console input and the display. Nothing was said about its ability to eliminate imperceptible lag time, however.
