For those of you with a 360

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if the system plays good on a non-HD TV. I dont have the money to buy a HD TV. This has been said but i dont think i believe it. I was just wondering from someone that has played it on a non-HD tv.

I cant believe all of you bash the xbox so much. I have the original one AND a PS2. I will admit i liked my PS2 a lot more when the XBOX first came out, there just wasnt a lot of games for it. But now, i LOVE my xbox and hardly ever play my ps2. i only play it for Metal Gear Solid games, and that will be the only reason i get a PS3.

IT DOES!

Don't make fun, but I seriously think it looks better on non-hdtv with the current games..I played on my BUBBLE tube 32" tv non hd and liked the picture better than my friend's 42" HD LCDtv running at 1080i...the edges are a lot smoother for some reason on the normal tv.

Edges smoother on a normal TV? That is called huge ass pixels bluring out all particle effects.

It's not "huge ass pixels" per se, it's the color bleeding. The pixels on analog TVs bleed into each other, resulting in a sort of poor-man's anti-aliasing. That's why a console game at traditonally low resolution looks so much better than a port of the same game on a PC running at that same low res. So the edges may look smoother to you on the standard TV, but it's going to be a fuzzier smooth (if that makes any sense). The HDTV image is without question more precise.

I take it from this discussion that the X360 does not have any AA built in? Or at least it is not used in the game you were playing.

It has 4x AA built in...really doesn't look like it though, may just be the games that were released with it.

That must be it. Just because the video system is capable of 4xAA does not mean that it is turned on all of the time. It may be that these early games turned off the AA to solve a performance problem, since they do not know how to program the hardware very well yet and they wanted to get the games out at launch. Just a theory.
