    Yeah, I have mine on an HD LCD, and it looks great obviously. But my brother is only 16 and can't afford one (again, obviously), but it still looks good on his TV.

    To be honest, I just think 360 games look weird when they're not in widescreen, though.

    Hey just thought i'd update this, as i have purchased both consoles now.
    (Wii and 360)

    Id just like to state that the 360 looks amazing on my SDTV. The "unreadable text problem" is not even an issue.

    Keep in mind my SDTV is a newer high-end model though. was around $500-600 it has the blue-red-green component cables. so if your SDTV is around 10 years old or so, sorry, you will have to look elsewhere for information.

    My reason for writing all this is that i had an unexpectely hard time finding information on the 360's SDTV graphics. for those of us who cant afford to throw away our 600 dollar SDTV investment from 2 years ago. It is just to help out others wanting the same information.

    On a standard TV the text is very small.

    yes i had deadrising on a small black tv and i could not read the text,then switched to a big hdtv and could see it very clear.the characters talk though so you dont have to read the text.
