    I think I read somewhere that AMPED 2 will run at 720p - is this right and if so do any other PAL games run at 720p ?

    TIA,
    M

    Nope, sadly not. I had GT4 (NTSC) on the PS2 but only had a 480p PJ at the time and it didn't look that good. Does 1080i look much better than 720p? I've heard that although at a lower res the 720p stuff looks better in some ways than 1080i due to it being in prog scan as opposed to interlaced.

    Even if that's the case how many people actually own a TV that supports 1080p ? 1080i is the maimum most people can get from the HD TV sets at the moment.

    The 360 will only support 480p, 720p and 1080i. It does say on Team X-Box that it supports 1080i but i've not heard this from anywhere else as yet.

    Amped 2 does look nice as well!

    Do you need component cables to play games in 720p?

    Yes, you need a hi-def kit that will have components out, and you have to get your xbox soft modded or chipped to enable the progressive NTSC modes.

    Unfortunately 720p is only available in 4:3 and not 16:9. :( I have to say though it does look stunning in 720p and is one of the best if not the best looking Xbox games.

    I think that the 360 will convert 720p to 1080i automatically, so no need for it to be supported as such I think
