Wow . . . . Halo 3 in 1080p . . . I'm excited! Looks like Westinghouse's stocks are going up over the next 6 months.

I believe Nintendo owns the rights for KI, KI2, and KI Gold, but it no longer holds rights to the "Killer Instinct" name.

But hey, if they can add it in without sacrificing anything else, more power to them. I just don't see enough people having 1080p displays at the time for it to be a big deal.
I'd rather have 60fps 720p then choppy 30fps 1080p any day. The game might be as pretty as a picture but there is nothing worst then having a game chop up on you right in the middle of some heavy action. That kills any type of immersion the game might have created.

With proper coding, a game can look really good (even at 720p) but still have fluid performance. The 360 is only starting to show its potential, and the PS3 will be the same way.

I agree as well but we don't know how well the XBOX 360 is going to perform in 1080p. It could butcher it and yes, I would rather have 720p but if it's the other way around, then sure. Bring on da 1080p!!!

I was at work last night and was looking at the back of the NBA Live 07 box and guess what it said . . . . "1080ip". If you don't believe me, go by EBGames or a Blockbuster and take a look. I'll try to find a pic . . .

Sod that, not long bought a 32" LCD HDTV. No way i'm forking out for another one just to use 1080p lol sooner set 1280 by 1024 via the VGA connector and have the higher/fluent frame rates.

Yea, I really don't like the move to 1080p. You can't just "enable" 1080p. Sacrifices need to be made, alot more processing power is required for 1080p.

I think 720p with some extra visual goodness would be the better route.

Rendering a game at 1080p is going to take a lot more power than at 720p so that probably means they will have to scale back some on the graphics to accomodate this. Personally, I think having the game render at 1080p which will only cater to a small percentage of HDTV owners is a bad idea. Don't get me wrong, I will probably upgrade my 720p set to 1080p next year but this news just seems like an answer to Sony.
