RHubub is telling the truth, guys. it's not our fault we haven't heard of enhancing consoles yet.

It just goes to show - we should always be open and accepting of new ideas until they are summarily proven false.

Human nature is pretty damn ugly. Why people feel the need to ridicule this guy I don't get. I don't know whether to believe him or not, I haven't seen enough evidence yet. But do I feel the need to treat someone like shit because they claim to have done something that sounds far-fetched? No, because I am a decent human being.

And from going through all his posts, the only thing I've seen him claim is that he's been able to boost the clarity of the signals going inside the PS3 and to his TV resulting in a sharper image where textures and background objects appear sharper (no change in resolution, but rather look sharper).

Just relax people. There's absolutely no need to ridicule the guy. Ask for proof and question it, but don't attack him personally. It just shows how shitty you are, no matter if he's a fake or not.
You deserve extreme ridicule for lacking critical thinking skills. Or at least basic knowledge about how graphics work, given that you post on a giant forum about videogames and have probably been playing them for years.

But no, you should definitely use this opportunity to lament the cruelty of human nature.

How about lamenting the gullibility of human nature instead?

Sorry, but this sounds like a bunch of nonsense. How do textures and draw distance improve merely by changing hardware? They have to be coded in SOFTWARE as well. If he said framerate improvements, that would be believable.

Pretty much. I'd rather be a little dickish to someone than to say nothing and allow misinformation to spread like wildfire.

Just look at some of those N4G comments. People see a thread like this on NeoGAF, they see that it's still not been locked, and they assume that this lends some air of legitimacy to the whole thing.

I'm not saying that this should be locked (yet), as there are still plenty of lulz to be had if/when he returns, but it would give people the wrong idea if claims like these went undisputed.

Oh, and I'd love to see him post this on a PS3 hacking scene website. They would absolutely tear this apart.

This guy is like a mix between the beyblade guy and Steve Jobs.

He is a true master of the arts.

He is obviously at least somewhat knowledgeable about modding electronic equipment. He speaks a lot of the right lingo, but then he says these other things, that makes you think he doesn't quite see the e-world the same way most forum goers do. This would normally damage his credibility too much to take seriously but it comes off in this almost innocent and naive sort of way.

He's either taking advantage of his perceived naivety or he really is unaware just how unforgiving the internet really is and the normal archetype e-modders usually fall into i.e. owning multiple capture cards of differing configuration.

All in all this is the most interesting GAF has been in years.

should have some new hardware and gameplay up soon! Might post some hd footage in realtime. Honestly thought most everyone knew about enhancing the console by now! What a good/ bad reaction huh! It's funny how much my words get misread and exaggerated, wow!
I will try to raise to the level expected of me now.

meh,nothing compared to my Enhanced PSP, I replaced the GPU and used 3 GTX580 and SLi'd them together using virtual Dynamics judge power cables ( so it can power up the four i7 processors I put inside too) and replaced the screen with Sharp 85" 8K screen, Wipeout Pure run awesomely awesome at 8192×4320@160fps now.

GAF is my home, this is a forum for my work. Read the title. Laugh if you want make jokes and I will come and go as I please!(40 minutes ago-hall monitor tattle tale really?) I was not aware my monthly salary was dependent on an imaginary timeline set in place by Jr.'s and Members. I'm not on trial here and I did not create a super ps3! I enhanced what was already in place the results I have shown and will show when I am ready, are above and beyond what is out in the market currently. I "challenge" everyone of you smart ass remark upper crust fake GAF: Post your current ps3 pics off your own monitor with a digital camera! Ohhhhhhhhh make it look good show me up prove my theory is just that show ME the light help ME understand how unfounded and completely off center I am. (while I continue to bust my ass) Oh the hilarity will ensue now all the pics that don't pertain to my request will be blasted out for who has the best fart joke status of the day! I was serious when I started this endeavor; moreover, if you respect or understand my efforts or not the camera does not lie.
Post your shit, and stick your neck out as I have. I welcome the challenge and you know what it's good to try something new be better than me, solder better than me, take notes and prove me wrong.

From the bottom of my gamer heart-Thank you mods for letting my voice be heard this week.

Maybe I am misguided, or insane or just plain stupid.(copy paste that) I did this for me I want the best PS3 available and speaking for myself I have it. People in general know a genuine change is about to happen. I want companies to start putting quality parts in our next console, we GAF deserve it. I was tired of repairing them time after time fucking wasting my money and yours. They take low-income families/ single mothers/fathers money year after year shelling out for repairs on the same broken console! Fucking maddening! This news will change ideas about production of sub-par products.
It should be a requirement that a console is well constructed and not just for high end audio and video or for the
wealthy. I will post when I feel I have
something worthy to post I'm nothing special but Iam honest with you fellow,
smart, funny, and rude GAF.

Not for long, if you keep up this circus act while providing absolutely zero proof to back up your impossible claims. Your charade is quickly transitioning from hilarious to annoying.

rhubbard16, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I dont know what to say. This all seems very fishy, I dont think that having cleaner singals going into the HDMI cable is going to affect CPU and GPU performance.

If he posts a HD 1080p vid of his stuff then sure. But now its all text.

This man is for real, GAF told me if I would ductape two GameCube's together I would get a Wii. And needless to say, I been playing Wii Sports and NSMB since.

If I ductape two PS3's together, along with soldering some wires and shit, I'll get a Super PS3. Shit is for real hypocrits.

not that it needs saying, but the RFI db stuff he says is pure pseudo-technical nonsense as far as i can see.

db is a relative unit so '70db' of radio signal escaping something is meaningless. you could have shielding of 70db that reduces output by that factor. his claimed '0db' output means it would be outputting the same as it was before.

I dont get it rhubbard16 you posted earlier that you would get pics once you got home/officem then you cited your family as the motive for the delay

And now when youre ready?

One question: Why?
