And then?
im just saying, it seemed like MS was talking alot of stuff like their 1080p games would arrive this fall, not 12 months from now. obviously they are trying to downplay sony on the 1080p bulletpoint but its kinda pointless if theres no 1080p games. maybe some arcade games will get patched for 1080p?

Well the dashboard update that is allowing 1080p is comming real soon. Maybe there will be arcadegames in 1080p soon.

Well, as I understand it, upscaling to 1080p will be available immediately? And I'm pretty sure a lot of the PS3's launch titles are actually upscaled to 1080p from 720p as well.

Although I'm sure now that I've made that claim, the resident PS3 fanboy will appear correcting me, and then the resident anti-PS3 fanboys will show, and the flaming will start :P

I would hope so, those arcade games that run at 200fps should definately be patched up to 1080p.

Well, as I understand it, upscaling to 1080p will be available immediately? And I'm pretty sure a lot of the PS3's launch titles are actually upscaled to 1080p from 720p as well.yeah but im talking about natively. all ps3 games can be upscaled to 1080p but you dont see sony saying all games will be 1080p. theres a few coming out at launch that will be 1080p native (resistance, rr7, nba07, gundamn, etc.) and some more early 2007 (lair, vt3, etc.), and probably more down the road (possibly mgs4).


Although I'm sure now that I've made that claim, the resident PS3 fanboy will appear correcting me, and then the resident anti-PS3 fanboys will show, and the flaming will start :P
:p not that it matters much, not many people have 1080p sets anyway. only reason im supporting it cause the sammy 56" 1080p set should be in my house in a couple weeks. ;)

Thats nice! Lemme know how it looks, personally I find DLP to look a little grainy, but that may just have been the store/signal/older models. I just grabbed a 32" Toshiba LCD HDTV myself. The 30" LG CRT HDTV was my worst purchase ever.

Nice... have you seen the new Sammy DLPs with LED lighting? They eliminated the lamp and color wheel with the new LED models. Take a look at it here: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-j8fAD6qeKWE/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=147350&I=305HLS5679

Wait X06 didn't even start yet. These are just rumors and predictions coming from someone on a forum.

I'd take it with a grain of salt until we get some official X06 stuff, which starts at 11am PST.

Something in my head Halo3 would be the first game announced to run at 1080p. I cannot wait for the impressions later on.

Damn that looks nice as well. but that price tag looks a little pricy at the moment. I wouldnt mind owning one of those a couple years down the road though. :)

How are they making another Killer Instinct if Nintendo owns the copyright? This whole article is predictions... Your taking it seriously when it starts out...

NeoSeeker forum member posted up what looks to be predictions for Microsoft's X06 conference coming later this week to Barcelona, Spain.

BTW is the Splinter Cell demo out? I will hook up Xbox Live for that.... hehe.
