if you have 40 inch hdtv set it to 1080p, it will reduce black level and not be as sharp, that is if you consider ps3 good graphics quality. You want that signal.

minor note: Usually glare, dark levels, aliasing and bump-mapping loss is less than 40 inch noticable. You know the 'unreal' effect from ut technology or close wall effects will be loss ala batman's threading on his chest muscles in batman arkham asylum on a smaller or native plasma hd television. 720p is then reccomended.

From my experience, here is a list of televisions I have tested with xbox 360:

Vizio 720p native HD under 36 inch - best res at 720p. True HD. Better textures, more noticable upclose bump-mapping textures appear. Sharper. Works with 1080p to reduce AA levels except lacks in sharpness and visible textures. 480p reduced component signal and 1080p standard or default is noticably reduced.

Sanyo 480p native HDMI tube - diamond cathode tube, false HD, best res at 1080i. 480p equivalent (sharp, strong signal). Blurred 720p signal (not sharp).

Sony 1080p native HD 50 inch - seems to be best at 1080p because of reduced black levels or what I call the 'bland effect' as compared to the use of ps3's cpu (# of gflops make its cpu much more powerful eg larger environments for HD). Reduced sharpness. Less Aliasing problems as well. True HD. No texture difference in scaling.

Usually the formentioned is most common, albeit it really depends on your setup and what tv *plasma* you have.






::Minor update cus im bored. The Vizio was infact a Proscan by General electronics (consumer electronics&gm or something) but all hd tvs at 24 inch or less act the same way with 720p eg sharper gra[phics and picture. You can get sony, vizio or watever and infact it will most likely be the same tv with the same functions. However i rec these tvs for xbox 360 since its in 720p. Ps3 can be good for 1080p tvs or 32inch and up but the graphics are simply considered when playing the type of game. FPS usually is better on ps3 because of the enhanced environments due to ram, but if you like games like arkham asylum, or arcade+racing with all the textures on the cape and roads etc. visible go for xbox 360. Besides who uses pc monitors these days anyways? I don't even use it for my PC gamebooster advanced sys care o/s. There is a stand-by mode which always works better than any console and its almost always auto-maintenance. Sure its only a 64bit cpu without a videocard installed, but with everything optimized i can run cs source at 60+ fps give or take the 1gig of ram. Thats why i have 360 on a seperate ethernet cord. Its for actual games. I go for stable over an over-hauled pc or console anyday. Thats why i only own pc, ps3 and dreamcast. That makes the double hd connecter come to use.

My Online Experience with Consoles in HD

Besides I'm one of those sad fanboys with a modem subscription and online access to the now defunct dreamcast system (over 200 games as well). I play xbox 360 by myself, but if a friend were to come over, wed play 2 player pc games like mugen, or dreamcast 4 player. I never use my xbox 360 for multiplayer party games. Its merely their for visual experience, which my pc would do if i upgraded it instead of bought the 360. But since 360 has netflix, youtube, better online exp etc now i went there. I would still play dreamcast if the games were online more than 360 though. Besides, Why play perfect dark zero online if youre not good at it? Why play pc games online if u dont have the hardware? When you have grawl and overg to fufill your experience it takes over but something's missing. Quake III, AFO, PSO and UT on the Dreamcast. I suck at 360 online unless its like graw...but my pc is great though. Almost acts like a console all in its own.

PC desktop on Sony HD tv 720p

Other

Why you ask did i abandon the past? WHy no systems like nes, snes etc. Because well they can be emulated on dc and pc...well not mine because its 64bit..maybe my work pc upstairs but thats like 1ghz speed 512 ram very slow. Besides Ps3 lacks what I needed, a PC gaming type setup eg red alert style without the hardware issues or incompatiblities. For strategy and reastic sim gamers like me whom don't play games all the time.

One qualm i have, PS3 SONY...u need more flightsims, like actual overg type sims on ps3 that act like flightsims. The lack of my knowledge for any puts me in dismay. The hardware is there but no sequal to aerowings or watever can be found, sadly...i mean com' on, even a new franchise would work...UFO area 51 flightsim anybody?:cool:

Hi i am curious about the hdmi function on xbox 360. I played my xbox 360 on a hd-tv at my parents house in CA for a year, and the picture looked dull on 480p, almost like a s-video signal type of quality. On 720p it looks best, and most sharp. On 1080p the sharpness and textures fade (upclose textures are blurry). Now On a 720p Sanyo tv (one of the first hd tvs tube crystal pixel type) it looks like 1080i is the best. It cant do 1080p and the strangest part is that 720p looks blurry and 480p almost indistinquishable from 1080i. 1080i looks sharpest. I recall the textures on the hd-tv looking 3dimensional when zooming in to the batman textures ONLY on 720p. Now whats strange is the 720p signal is dull on the Sanyo. How do tube hdmi tvs work exactly? Is there no direct signal for 720p? If this is the case I just leave it on 1080i. Why does 480p on the Sanyo display a better signal than the 720p one and almost equivalent to the 1080i?> This must mean the hd-tv was analog at 480p at my parents house but im not sure. Thanks.

Ps I know all about the upscaling effect and diminishing resolutions. I was just wondering why the crystal bulb hdmi tvs have this effect of lowering the 720p res.

I heard somewhere Ps3 can not do blur effects without a cost in fps, while xbox 360 can do pixel blur without a loss of framerate. Can anyone tell me the dif?:question:

Personally, the PC is going to the way of the consoles in terms of technology. As long as there is a clock and a motor to run it, the speed isnt going to change significantly in the CD data era of console gaming. Consoles are going the way of PCs not PCs of consoles. I can have more fun with a PC from 2000 which runs certain games best and most stable. The larger the platform, and more electricity it can pump, the more stable. That is whats going to change. PCs are going to stop progressing like cars and the motor do I bet. PCs will always be superior because you can customize it so it runs better. Check out my blog for more info.

actually, dc vs marvel is on mugen, except it would be better if capcom made it because of their style. I happen to be a fond collector of comics during the height of the dc and marvel universe. Collectively they were linked really well during the 1990s when xmvsf came out, so that time would have been the best time to release it.

april 6 update apparently doesnt work with routers with slow:evil: dsl speed and freezes xbox silver memberships ON PURPOSE.

EDIT: nm, apparently had to delete downloads in inventory. I think it just updates symbols on external hardware or something.

well, no the majority of reviews are from elitists. Having studied both consoles, they are evenly matched. Here is a summary from my blog. 1.) Case design winner: 360 Srry 360 follows through with the game console design that dvd players and computer designs dont. 2.)Graphics tie: 360 or Ps3. AA or jaggies. I noticed that the 720p res are the same. Designers handle the AA, and although ps3 can have better AA environements it never has better detail, framerate or textures and shadows. ATI vs Nvidia pure and simple. 3.)Controller: Casual gamers like ps3 but 360 is better when it comes to gameplay. 4.)Price: 360 is better because its price is for cheap gamers who buy 200 dollar modded consoles. Easier to hack eg copied dvds without originals. 5.)service: 360 because its online is 6 months free with accounts reused 6.) menu: 360 old version because its menu was simple for gamers. I will give it to ps3 though because its for the casual gamer. Wii for the smart gamer and 360 for the cheap gamer.
