Default Re: XBox 360 games comparison on SDTV vs HDTV

Since I have had my HDTV for over a year now I have noticed that if the source isn't high def to begin with, it doesn't look very good. I mean it looks alright, but nothing like a high def source. If you are playing a game using a standard def tv and that is all your used to then getting the new xbox is almost a waste. Especially if the games are coded for the higher rez (and from the looks of the screenshots the scaler doesn't seem to be used as well as it could be).

IMO using the component inputs on SD with even 480p still doesn't look as good as 720p.
