Default Re: XBox 360 games comparison on SDTV vs HDTV

Seriously, everything about this thread is wrong...
-The chosen example is one that is constantly chosen for this sort of thing because of the unusually drastic effects from HDTV to SDTV. Actually, I don't think that the HDTV version of this game has very good graphics to begin with... Image transfer reduced quality as well. Unlike most people who try to make it seem so horrible, I've actually played the 360 on both SDTV and HDTV many times, not just dug up pictures on the internet... When I tried out Oblivion on SDTV after playing it on an HDTV, the only difference i could tell was that the HDR effects weren't quite as great on SDTV, but that's really it. The graphics themselves are still there, vibrant and shiny as ever, and MUCH better than anything you'll find on current gen systems anyway (XBOX, PS2, GC). People who try to compare it to an old PS2 title don't have any idea...

That sounds like something that a poor man would say...

I've seen Oblivion on a sdtv at a friends house, I've played it on my pc with my 7900gtx, i've played it for 360 on my crt @ 1280x1024 same res as I did with pc...truuuuust me, the sdtv version can look good for tv standards, yes, I noticed fight night round 3 looks impressive too...my friend swore hdtv's and monitors would make no difference. Refused to check out my versions for months......then he bought Condemned and screamed about how it was too dark, he couldn't see anything, and he doesn't know why the "idiots made the game this dark" "You ought to play Doom 3", I replied.. j/k. I told him bring the game over and it will look fine on my monitor....needless to say, he left my place and went right out and bought a vga adapter and I still give him sh*t to this day

You obviously have a monitor, you have a 360, what's $30 more dollars for a vga adapter so you can view games in there intended graphical glory.
