I just hooked my 360 to my older 480p CRT… and it felt like a completely different game. A better game. The game feels faster and much more fluid. With the inevitable HD expansion effecting tournament organizing, being forced to use Plasma/LCD technology due to their penetration, I have a feeling no one’s playing this game the way it’s meant to be played. Is it just me?
I traditionally play on a Panasonic Plasma G10 which is a damn good TV for games - fighting games just as well (assuming the game is developed in HD). I always felt any input lag that certainly existed was negligible (I never perceived it). I’ve been able to carry my game over to other HD sets with no trouble.
Now, I feel like I don’t want to go back. Hence the dilemma. Playing the game on a non-true HD set is guaranteed to give me the game’s full fidelity. But tournaments are using LCD sets of varying quality. Am I the only one that sees this as a big problem?
