A terrible thing is , Xbox cannot keep up with technology.
In short, the best TV you can play xbox 360 on is a LCD 720p screen. Due to upscaling issues, a 1080p TV is going to give you blue and jagged edge issues, I'm sure many of you know what I mean.
However, this is playable for a long time because most TV's were 60hz, well now a new breed of TV is out 120hz and higher. It claims smoother transitions especially with BluRay. It's true, if you're watching a BluRay DVD it'll be beautiful. You'll also srop a ton of cash for it.
The Xbox360 cannot handle it however. So what happens? The most awful thing for any gamer - lag.
Lag like you've never seen before. We all know that a first person shooter depends on instant timing. The Halo series for example is known for very competitive multiplayer games. If I said you shot would be delayed but a full second, you would literally never hit a target. Most 120hz and higher TV's delay between .25 and 1.15 seconds, enough to take an average player (15kills to 15 deaths) and drop them to last (2 kills to 21 deaths) and a superb player (23 kills to 4 deaths) to near bottom (5 kills to 18 deaths).
The point? I can no longer play any Xbox360 game. The lag causes unreal issues. It's not MY TV. Why not? I have bought and returned 4 TV in the past week. All 120hz, trying to find the "one" that worked. After hours of wasted research I finally came across post after post about how the xbox360 cannot upscale correctly.
720p 60hz = God. You can snipe anything from anywhere.
Want to upgrade? Kiss your halo career goodbye.
Frustrated does not begin to explain it. I am PRAYING the Microsoft community releases an update to help with this.
If anyone has a solution, I'd be in your debt.
