Default Re: Zune, Xbox 360, or New Monitor??

The 360 and it's games look perfectly fine on a standard TV. Anyone who tells you otherwise is probably too immersed in their own HDTV to even possibly think theres a viable alternative anymore.

480p doesn't work on a regular TV. SD (or standard definition) is only capable of using 480i... as far as I know.
