The 360 does not support native 1080p correct? Only 720p?

I recently went from a 32 inch 720p HDTV to a 40 inch 1080p HDTV. The games look far worse then ever. It seems like the game upscale, and there isnt anything to do to correct it.

Anyone else have this problem? On the back of games, it says 1080p. It supports it, or is it native 1080p?

Did you set the Xbox to output to 1080p (or Auto) mode? If you didn't then your TV is streching the image to fit the screen which will make it look worse.

The Xbox supports renders games at up to 720p then scales them to 1080p. I play games on my 50 in 1080p and they looks just as good as anything else.

There are 1080 games on the 360, but generally just arcade games.

The games are rendered at 720p at best, with some even 576p.

Also, they will be upscaled to 1080p one way or another when displayed on your TV. If your Xbox 360 doesn't do it then your TV will.

On a 1080 screen but have the 360 set to 720. Last I tried, going to 1080 upscale didn't make any difference.

It's always better to upscale on the device and not the TV. also you won't then get 1080 on the games and apps that support it. like movies and some arcade games.

I'd trade 1080p and stick with 720p for some anti-aliasing and filtering + maybe a default FOV that actually fits a widescreen TV so it doesn't take a half hour to do a full turn around in a game.. these are a few of the reasons why I can't enjoy games on the 360.

Many games already use AA in some form and that doesn't entirely help with how bad the games look when upscaled.

One thing I notice with my Xbox 360 is that even in the Dashboard set to 1080p and the TV being definitely @ 1080p the screen doesn't look 'sharp' at all. Looks like it's upscaled while my PS3 looks fantastic.

Whatever the FOV is, a full 360 turn around still take the same amount of time ;p

I took notice to this too. I don't like it at all.

Just saw this thread and now im questioning the past two years of my gaming lol I play my 360 on a 40" Sony @1080p via HDMI. I've never seen a problem but im definitely not a 'trained eye' as it were. Would my games likely look more crisp if I set it to 720p for the consoles sake even though the TV is 1080p?

No because your TV would upscale it back to "1080p" - :p LCDs only have one native display mode, everything else gets scaled to match.
