i play in SD :(

#102 Posted by Doobit (102 posts) -

I somehow managed to get a rear projection tv a couple of years back that actually supports 1080i (which was a huge surprise when i hooked my PS3 up a couple of months back)... Though i question weather it's actually showing all those pixels or just mushing them together... looks OK either way.

#103 Posted by Strife88 (225 posts) -

Yeah, 1080p.

#104 Posted by TheBrainSquid (17 posts) -

I'm playing with an 26" LCD 720p Bravia... meh, I still think HD is way overrated, I can't really see much of a difference.  That isn't to say I don't see any difference but there isnt much and its not worth the hundreds more dollars over an SD TV, I think.  I do like having a widescreen though, I don't have to keep looking back and forth when defending in TF2  now :D

The switch from SD to HD was extremely dramatic for me.

Probably because Gears of War was almost unplayably dark on my old SDTV.

#107 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

Same, I play both regularly, HUGE difference.

No such thing as a 1080P HDMI cable =P

Oh?  Than what is the HDMI cable for?  I should have just bought some component cables...

After my first HDTV died, and my real TV is 650 miles away, I am indeed still bringing it on in beautiful 720p. Currently playing while using a friends TV. Cant wait for my plasma!

#110 Edited by Cube (4366 posts) -

Yes. I have a 32" Panasonic Viera 720p LCD.

HDMI is still a better signal, but it is not specific to any resolution. If you're going to do 1080p, might as well use the best cables though.

1080p for life!

#113 Posted by Kenzo287 (722 posts) -

Got a VGA box so I can game in 1080p on my 19 inch LCD monitor

#114 Posted by Patchinko (841 posts) -

1080P on a 56" DLP.

Sometimes I put a little bowl under my chin to catch the drool. ;)

Actually, HDMI is not an inherently better signal.  It really depends on how well your TV can handle either as well as the particular device being used.  Here's an article describing it if you'd like to read up a little on that.

Yep, 720p, after playing on SD for a year, its so was was worth it, 32" for 300 english quidz!

#119 Posted by lantus (143 posts) -

Hmm, nope, not on my PS3 anyways. I've only got a LCD monitor that I play my 360 on using the VGA cables you can buy for it. But I do plan on getting an HD TV by the end of the year.

#120 Posted by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

Yes, very glad I went to BestBuy on Black Friday a couple years ago to get my HDTV.

#121 Posted by Patchinko (841 posts) -

Yeah, I've heard people talk about how MGS4 "doesn't look that great" and so forth, but inevitably those people are playing on SD. HD is practically a requirement to truly enjoy the system, I feel!

#122 Posted by blizzvalve (128 posts) -

I play my games on an old JVC tube. Still waiting to get a plasma

#123 Posted by c1337us (5751 posts) -

Yes I am playing on a 32" Samsung LCD.

I'm playing on a 32" 720/1080i Sony Bravia.  Can't wait until the woman and I finally move out of here so I can get a bigger TV.  This flat is too small. :)

Once you do get a bigger TV, get a 52" 1080p Sony Bravia. BEAUTIFUL. They (Sony) use 'em at all their events, like E3, Leipzig, etc.
#126 Posted by Tr4gic_H3r0 (106 posts) -

#132 Posted by Dakota (248 posts) -

1080i for me. Even though my TV is natively 720p, somehow 1080i looks sharper. Weird Hey?

1080p for me :D

#142 Posted by Lepuke (327 posts) -

You know gaming "in HD" is not new at all. PC games Have been able to run in HD resolutions before there was a term HD.
I currently own a 57" Widescreen Toshiba projection 1080i TV, and 2, 24" 1680x1050  widescreen Acer monitor's.  Not the best, but they work well.

#143 Posted by KR3W619 (25 posts) -

I play on 32' 1080i Vizio

#144 Posted by Quadrifoglio (816 posts) -
