Two Way TV

Sky digital hass recently released it second two way tv system, Mind games, this follows up the Playin TV system which previously has been created in order to make TV more interactive. I see this as clashing badly with the objectives of TV as only interactive in so far as it is open to interpretation. The main flaw with these systems is the graphics are poor and reminiscent of the Super Nintendo and Sega Master System game systems of the early 1990's. In addition to this the controls are clunky and poor therefore the games arent fun even for novelty value and I cannot see these games becoming popular as they alsoi cost money when far better trivia games, in the case of Mind games can be found for free on the internet. The gaming industry at this time will hardly be scared of this new system although it can be seen as a step towards the intergration of TV and Computer technology.
