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.


I always thought the same thing, but when fiddling around with the HDMI settings on my TV I noticed it was upscaling everything (Along with muting the colour and doing edge enhancement). Could your monitor be doing something similar?

Edit: Apparently the guide always renders at 640x480 and is upscaled, regardless of what display setting you use.

I'll have to try it on auto. I know battelfield looks worse then what it did on 720p


It should not. I see no difference between 720p and 1080p on my TV for 360 games.

Unless your TV is REALLY REALLY AWESOME SAUCE at upscalling it will look the same. Maybe if you have a 5 grands TV dunno never tested since my TV is average ...

Well a console that would have cost 800-100 dollars, with DUAL SLI setups and 1000W power consumption and the cooling system from hell wouldn't have been very popular ;)


That's for sure ;)

I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't render at 640x480, but it's claimed that it renders at 720 and is upscaled. can't say I really care. the 640x480 thing does occur, but only in certain games or situations. you will sometimes, if you're in a loaing screen or somethign in a game when you get a friend has logged on, you will get a REALLY blurry notification popup, those I believe are 640x480 upscaled. I don't know when and why they are used, but I suspect it's done when the xbox is under heavy load.

How close are you sitting. Sitting at the same distance I can tell the difference. It looks horrible. Need for speed most wanted looks great. Battelfield sucks.

I didn't do a very exhaustive search, but when the first few results I found all claimed it was 640x480 I just assumed it was correct. And thinking about it it'd have to account for the aspect ratio, or they're just centering the result so it isn't stretched out of proportion.

well set you XBOX to SD res and then change to 720 and you'll see that the guide is certainly not rendered at 640x480 :)

upscaled to 1080p in settings, and as I recalled from last time I did this, no big difference. games looks the same. if anything, they look a little muddier but it's all good. amazing 2004-2005 tech can still run games like these PERIOD.
