no you xbox console any runs up to 1080i, to get 1080p you need to run through an HDMI cable.

I agree, its a future proof purchase so you might aswell get one with the 1080p. But like you asked, you wont notice no different at all. (unless you run something over 1080p)

put it this way, when you come down and stay you will be able to bring down your xbox elite and we can tear shit up in 1080p.

Naaa but as you say, i want to be futureproof. Ideally want to upgrade the xbox/ps3 in the new year. Am i right saying the ps3 and elite and 1080p yeh?

Can anyone confirm that they are 1080p?

The way I see it, I dont wanna be spending well over a grand on a TV that will have old technology in a year. Might aswell spend an extra few hundred on something that I will have at least 2 years and wont be an outdated outcast.

good way of thinking really is the best thing to do, so if your planning on the future for 1080p, found this so the console actually is 1080p just no games released for it yet, so yeah it is 1080p, but as your planning ahead mayaswel get one for the future

about bluray players they are all 1080p and most can upscale standard DVD's to 1080p/1080i

good link that betty.

struggling to make sense of all of it but does make sense. alot of the user comments are sort of contradicting what he has said though.

if its true that the 1080i and 1080p are the same then this is the one for me:
