Now I know this may be poorly received by some of the elitists, but I thought it’d be an interesting question to ask.
Many games nowadays are DESIGNED in HD (generally 720p) for PS3/360. Since this is an FG community I’ll use BBCS as an example. A lot of BB players say that HD is the way to play, as in 4:3 sections of the screen are actually cut off, and it was built to run at 720p anyways so why not run it at that?
Now I was wondering if, even in the case of games like BB that were designed for 720p, this would add some delay due to it almost certainly running at lower FPS?
Also, was SSF4 designed in SD or HD? And is playing it in HD a good or bad thing?
The main reason I’m wondering this is because I just purchased a new 1080p HDTV (don’t worry I won’t even be attempting to play anything at 1080p), and I pretty much only play SSF4/BBCS nowadays with a little MW2 with buddies once in awhile. I don’t want to constantly be switching between 720/480 when I’m playing BBCS/SSF4 and MW2 respectively, so if SSF4 can be played in HD that’ll resolve that problem (I play MW2 so infrequently it’s not an issue).
EDIT: Would playing in 720p on a 1080p TV create additional lag since the TV itself is not 720p in it’s native resolution?
