" @88Fingers said:Ummm, am I mis-informed? I thought all games on 360 were HD. Some play at 720p but most are 1080p.... I don't think you can get an HD game from a regular DVD. Or am I wrong? "
" Impressive. Doesn't this kinda' make BluRay obsolete? It makes me wonder about Microsofts next console.... I doubt it will have BluRay if it can stream 1080p. The only benefit from BluRay would be larger space on a disc. But so far, games on a dual layer HD DVD seem to be enough space. In other words, there's no benefit of putting BORDERLANDS on a BluRay. 50Gbytes of space, yet only 10 percent seems to be needed....in most games. The only game to "supposedly" use an entire BluRay is Metal Gear IV. I don't understand why though. It's a 4 hour game if you remove the cut scenes. I think they probably just un-compressed it as much as possible to fill it up. That's why there are 20+ minute load times. (installs) I still say streaming this well in 1080p is another reason why the next consoles will be drive-less and digital downloads only. And I welcome it with open arms. "speaking of obsolete, has there ever even been a game on an HD DVD? Blu-ray is great for ppl who want to have the best video and audio quality, this instant on 1080p streaming seems like the equivalent of a dvdrip to a retail dvd, compressed video and low quality audio when put next to a retail blu-ray, but most people couldn't even tell the difference so it's still a great feature for them "
There are no games made with a resolution above 720p, at least on the Xbox anyway. You can view them in 1080p if your TV allows it, but all game's native resolution is 720p.
