Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

5 Answers

Bought an xbox 360 console today and connected it up to my Sony Bravia 50" KDF50E2010 3lcd tv as per the manual with hdmi cable. As soon as it boots up it says at the top corner 1080i/60, but the picture is double - like one on top of the other, but slightly apart. I rebooted it using the supplied composite cable and the same thing happened. What am i doing wrong? Only bought it for the hd graphics. The settings can be changed to 50hz on the xbox menu, but not all games are supported at that rate. Please can you help me. Many thanks. Robert Scotland UK

With the VGA output, or the HDMI on the new XBOX 360s, it actually upscales ALL games to 1080p. That's something the PS3 can't do. If you want games AND Blu-ray, I'd say go with the PS3. If you are looking for the best selection of games and 1080p output, the 360 wins hands down.

I have to hand it to Microsoft, putting a hardware upscaler really paid off. Sony will never be able to match the quality of the upscale (if they even manage to make a software upscaler for PS3 games), unless they revise the hardware to implement a hardware upscaler.

    Technically, component cables/technology is able to support 1080p i do believe the 360 is able to output 1080p via component... the problem is many other devices such a many television sets (like possibly your Bravia) only support up to 1080i via component. 1080i via component is pretty standard but 1080p is not. 

    If this is the case, all hope for 1080p is not necessarily lost yet though. Does your Bravia happen to support VGA (computer) inputs? If it does, you can purchase a VGA capable for the 360, which does support 1080p as well as various other computer/tv resolutions. Since all computer displays are progressive the TV is sure to take progressive input via any computer inputs. Also, is your TV Full 1080p (1920 x 1080) or does it have a lower "native resolution"? In such a case, setting the VGA output resolution to whatever that "native resolution" is would be your best option.. regardless if you can crank it up to 1080p. If you want to provide the exact model for your set I can double check the stats for your if you want.

    Component on the 360 cables do NOT support 1080p, the highest resolution that hd component cables support is 1080i. The only cable on the market right now that supports 1080p is hdmi, and since you have the older xbox 360 console hdmi is not an option at least right now, so your highest resolution support or your current console is going to be 1080i

Hi One reason could be that your disk is scratched, if so take it to a store and have it resurfaced. Or do it yourself.

Leave the frequency to 50 hz, if the picture is not rolling , frequency should be ok. Ensure that signal is not set to pal, and ensure TV and Xbox are both set for 1080 Dpi resolution.

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
