hi i have read all the info about the 360 and i know it comes with the HD AV cable that supoorts both regualr TV's and HDTV's. The problem is i dont have an HDTV because i cant afford one. They are so expensive in canada a good one goes from atleast a grand to 2 grand. and that is for a smaller one. i cant afford that same as i cant afford a good gaming computer which is why i play xbox. The good news is though i have a 2006 model Toshiba 32" inch regular tv which produces great picture and sound. But are the graphivs going to suck on a regualr TV will it still be good on a regualr TV and if about how much of the picture quality am i getting with a reguarl TV compared to a HDTV. also on my regualr tv am i going to see the black bars on the bottom of my screen because of the widescreen games. Thanks.

You should be able to get better quality out of your computer monitor, as it is capable of producing progressive images. You'll need the VGA cable (MSRP $39.99 US) to do this, and you should be able to get an HD-quality image if your monitor is halfway decent.

As far as your TV is concerned, you'll be able to take advantage of most of what the 360 offers. You should notice a definite improvement over current-gen game consoles; howver, you won't be able to take advantage of 100% of the 360's graphics capabilities unless you use an HD-capable monitor. (See my first paragraph.) All developers are required by MS to support widescreen gaming; however, most developers (if not all) will add support for 4:3 (traditional) aspect ratios as well -- they don't want to alienate the 90%+ of potential buyers who don't have widescreen monitors.

Hope that answers your questions.

So far I'm gonna use a monitor, but I'm not playing in no 4:3 aspect - I'm gonna play in widescreen letterbox. Even if I had to use a 4:3 sd tv, widescreen letterbox it is.

blink.gif Cars != Xbox games

rolleyes.gif And froot loops, you're an idiot. Downloading and selling games/movies is wrong. I doubt any one here will be able to convince you to stop (maybe when your account is banned?), but at least have the intelligence not to go bragging about it to other people.

Plus, selling modded systems with games to other kids has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. All you need is one parent asking the wrong questions to their son/daughter for the entire thing to blow up in your face. Like when a system dies, and the parents call 1-800-4MY-XBOX to wonder why their installed copy of Halo 2 doesn't play any more... iamwithstupid.gif

Dude, you just OPENLY admitted to a FEDERAL CRIME on the internet. You know MS im sure visits this place or some people affiliated with them and they could easly track you down and you would be in DEEP $HIT. Your talking YEARS in jail. They dont play around with that crap. Whatever you do is your business but you are risking your ass bigtime if someone was to turn you in. I know your 15 and that hasnt crossed your mind but one day when you may be sitting in jail, you'll wish you had did things differently, trust me.

Lately there has been no crackdown on comments like this... it's about time we see an uproar. When I couldn't afford nice cars I didn't steal to try to pay for one...bastard, my brothers 15 and he doesnt steal to afford the 360.
