Xbox 360 The new Kameo Game doesn't do the Xbox 360 Justice

My roommate was one of the winners of the Pepsi Xbox 360 giveaway and he received his on Monday with the game Kameo. I was playing Kameo and wasn't at all impressed with the graphics. I hope that the new Madden game really brings out the true benefits of owning the Xbox 360 because Kameo is one game that shouldn't have been released.

you have to have a hdtv and use the Component HD AV Cable for the full effects of the system.

plus keep in mind that these are the first games coming out, wait a few months and they'll get prettier and prettier.

thats the main thing right there. Of course HD will make a difference but it being First gen is the biggest difference. Speaking of HD, it seems as if alot of you have HD set ups. What Tv you guys got?

sadly i don't have a HD ready TV. it does support 480p at least but we just got it so i doubt i'll be getting a HDTV anytime soon. and it's a 30" Sony Wega flat screen.

And so what is the difference of HD ready and then HDTV that supports 480p? Do you have to buy a converter or something?

actually that's a good question and i don't know the answer.

as far as i know, there isn't a way to convert my tv into a true hdtv that can support 480p, 780p, and 1080p.

all i know is that my tv does support component cables but only supports 480i [ it's "i" and not "p" | don't know what the difference is ].

HD-Ready is capable of High Def, but requires a tuner. You can easily get one from your cable/sat company. Standard TVs support 480p (640x480p) resolution.

Also, anyone with a fairly new monitor already have a HDTV. Just use the VGA component cables.

HDTV is basically a tv that supports higher resolution. A monitor with 1280x780 is 780p, and a monitor that supports 1920x1080 is 1080p. Don't look for a monitor to say HDTV, because its not considered a TV, and monitors have been able to exceed regular TV definition for a while.

To tell how high your resolution on your monitor can go, is by right clicking on the desktop and going to properties, and go into the Setting tab. Slide the Screen Resolution slider all the way to the right, and take note of the resolution (800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, etc). Anything more than 640x480 (480p) is better than your standard tv, and the xbox 360 will allow you to choose which resolution you want. Just make sure you don't exceed what the monitor can handle.

EDIT: As for Kameo not doing the Xbox 360 Justice, I think most people are confusing its art style. I mean the amount of detail on the scenery are amazing.

EDIT: Didn't notice the link to your monitor. Yeah, your monitor could support 1240x1080, thats about a 780p (actually a bit better).
